Another Million-Dollar Hypercar for America. Ho-Hum.

If you had a million dollars…you still couldn’t buy a Zenvo ST1.

The realm of hypercars available in America has grown yet again, as a central Indiana company is now bringing the Zenvo ST1 to these United States. The world's fastest Danish Dane won't be cheap, though—expect to pay a cool $1,225,000 for your personal copy of the car, according to Autoblog, a price that puts it between the $970,000 SSC Ultimate Aero II and the $2.3 million Bugatti 16.4 Veyron Super Sport.

Your nearly-one-point-two-five-million George Washingtons (or, snicker, Millard Fillmores) buys you one of 15 Zenvos built every year, each equipped with a 7.0 liter V8 from the Chevy Corvette ZR1 Z06 and pumping out 1,104 horsepower and 1055 lb-ft of torque thanks to a supercharger and a turbocharger. A good ol' six-speed stick handles all that power as it heads to the rear wheels. (Check out more pictures of the Zenvo ST1 in our photo gallery.)

The company also imports several other cars not usually seen in the U.S., such as the heavily armored Russian SUV known as the Dartz Kombat (you know, the SUV that used to offer a whale penis leather interior) and the 650-860 horsepower Gumpert Apollo, which importer Red Sea Distribution is marketing with the unfortunate tagline, "The Germans are attempting to break the speed of light, again." We don't have the heart to tell them the truth about that slogan. [via Autoblog, Red Sea Distribution]

    The 7L V8 is from the corvette Z06 not the ZR1

    Whoops! We actually knew that, just wrote the wrong name. Thanks for the heads up, Kevin.
