…The Zenvo ST1 is a serious supercar?

Zenvo ST1

The Zenvo ST1 is a supercar. From Denmark. Seriously.

Despite coming from a country that’s not known for its supercars, the ST1 certainly looks the part and has specs to match, with the 7-litre V8 using both a supercharger and a turbocharger to make more than 1,100 horsepower and 1,430 NM of torque.

Specs on paper are one thing, but actual real-world performance is often another, so Zenvo gave one of their prototypes to Bil Magasinet TV for a test drive, and judging by their reaction, it’s going to be a hit:


…Danish people speed?


In Denmark, 7 out of 10 drivers exceed the speed limit on a regular basis. In an attempt to get people to acknowledge the speed limit signs, the Danish Road Safety Council started a program called Speedbandits.

…Teleportation may soon be possible?

Scientists/Really big Star Trek fans from Denmark managed to teleport both light and matter a whole 18 inches today, putting us one step closer to beaming around via Scotty. The experiment involved teleporting a macroscopic atomic object containing thousands of billions of atoms using light as the carrier of entanglement and plenty of other scientificy stuff that I didn’t understand, but the idea is cool regardless of anyone’s ability to understand it. Soon, Dominos will be able to promise delivery before you can hang up the phone, and I for one can’t wait to order the teleport special.
