This man is VERY excited about picking up his new Zenos

Smalltime British sports car manufacturer Zenos has sold its 100th car – and it seems that the owner couldn’t be more delighted.

Matthew Streeter and his wife Georgina upgraded their 250hp E10 S to a 310hp E10 R and travelled to the factory in Wymondham, Norfolk to collect the firm’s 100th vehicle.

The Zenos E10 R is powered by a turbocharged 2.3-litre Ford Ecoboost engine – the same as used in the Mustang and Focus RS.

Starting at £39,995, the lightweight E10 R boasts the performance to match supercars such as the Ferrari 488 GTB – taking just 3.0 seconds to hit 60mph.

Georgina Streeter said: “We are thrilled to hear that we have played a small part in helping the Zenos team to reach this important milestone. The company has absolutely achieved its aims of producing thrilling and accessible sports car, and – just as importantly – has provided us with exceptional service.

“The fact that we’re already buying our second Zenos is testament to how delighted we are with the company and its cars,” she added.

The Streeters’ car is finished in a custom Soul Red paint colour with matching ceramic optical-coated exhaust pipe. It’s also fitted with a special commemorative plaque to mark its significance.
