ZENOS Cars, the Norfolk-based sports car firm much-loved for its affordable lightweight lineup, has gone into administration. The British car maker had recently produced its 100th vehicle, but a series of cancelled export orders proved too much for the small yet intimate company to handle.
Founded in 2012 by two experts who had worked at Lotus and Caterham Cars together, Zenos first produced its E10 sports car in 2015. It had no roof and was priced at a modest £25,000 (€29,000).
Later followed the more powerful E10 S and E10 R. The E10 R could hit 60mph in just three seconds, had a top speed of 155mph and weighed just 750kg. Around half of Zenos’ cars were sold within the UK, while others can be found as far away as the US and Japan.
