General Information on the E10S:
The Zenos E10S is built using some innovative ideas, based on a combination of crowd/user input and the experiences of Ansar Ali who was instrumental in guiding Lotus and then Caterham (and now with McLaren Cars).
The car is built around an extruded aluminum spine which offers greater torsional rigidity than a Lotus Elise/Exige.
The front suspension is inset inboard for protection.
The body panels are designed to low cost and easily replaced. No need to replace an entire clam or expensive body work. Just replace the damaged bits. The tub is made out of an smart use of “recycled carbon fiber” sandwiched around a plastic composite element. This technology is also finding its way into other places, such the BMW electric car. This gives extreme cockpit protection, rigidity, and stiffness… at a lower cost. Not many carbon fiber tub cars can be found under $100K!

Car shows a little wear from being used. Some scuffs on top of entry door sills. A few minor rock chips in windscreen. One small rash on one wheel.
I need to replace the grip tape in the footwells, which should be easy enough.
The LCD display has been a little off. Sometimes when you start it, it does a wobbly screen. Then it fixes itself. I was told I probably need a new LCD screen which can be sourced from UK.
This car can be street legal in most states (buyer to verify their state’s requirements) and registered for street now in the state of Tennessee.
