A few months ago we brought you the first teaser images of a new track car project called Zenos. Not unlike the mass exodus from Ferrari that founded ATS in the ’60s, Zenos was started by Ansar Ali and Mark Edwards who formerly worked together at Caterham and Lotus. The idea is to create a lightweight, affordable sports car that will take three forms: the E10 track-toy speedster, E11 convertible and E12 coupe. Now it has announced the first of those three to debut next month at the Autosport International racecar show in Birmingham, England.
Built around an extruded aluminum backbone with a carbon-composite safety cell, the Zenos E10 (two additional renderings of which we’ve added to the gallery above) is targeted to weigh just 1,433 pounds. Like so many British toys, it’ll be track-focused but road-legal, with power coming from a 2.0-liter Ford engine with 200 horsepower. Production of the E10 is scheduled to begin late next year for the first batch of deliveries to commence at the beginning of 2015, to be followed by the E11 roadster and E12 coupe. More details are available in the press release below.
