Rumor

Can A Focus RS-Powered Zenos E10 R Be A Match For The Ariel Atom?

The brand's teasing an even faster track car.

Open-roof track cars like the Ariel Atom and Caterham Seven are in a world of their own for enthusiasts that enjoy the performance of supercars for sports car money. Zenos may not have the brand recognition as the other open-day track automakers, but its latest vehicle will give the already insane Ariel Atom a run for its money. The Zenos E10 R is rumored to gain the ferocious 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine out of the Ford Focus RS, which is good for at least 350 hp.

The teaser photos that Zenos released didn’t reveal a lot about the high-performance vehicle, but shows us that the track car will have a set of OZ Ultraleggera forged alloy wheels and a host of carbon fiber components, which points at weight savings as a priority. While the rumored engine is from the Focus RS, it would give the Zenos E10 R a power-to-weight ratio in excess of 500 hp per ton, which is proper supercar territory.
