Founded by former Caterham boss Ansar Ali, Zenos Cars has fully revealed the E10 this week at 2014 Autosport International.

The first production model from Zenos Cars is an open-top, two-seater lightweight car which will have a starting price of 24,995 GBP. The E10 tips the scales at just 650 kg (1,433 lbs) and is powered by a mid-mounted Ford-sourced 2.0-liter engine outputting 200 bhp (149 kW) which will enable the track-focused yet street-legal car to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in less than 5 seconds.

Output of the Zenos E10 will be sent to the rear axle through a 5-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed manual. At an additional cost, customers will be able to configure the E10 with a limited slip differential. The vehicle's lightness has to do with its carbon tub and aluminum construction and the automaker is estimating a top speed of approximately 135 mph (217 km/h).

Zenos has announced the first 75 production units will be part of a launch edition priced at 28,995 GBP that will come with the aforementioned limited slip differential, OZ alloy wheels, footwell heating and a quick-release steering wheel. These options would normally cost an extra 5,755 GBP if selected individually but clients will pay only 4,000 GBP above the car's standard price tag.
