This qualifies as a European car (though not the usual kind). Called the Zenvo ST1, it comes from Denmark. And it s (supposedly) going to be available in the United States. The S in the name refers to its suaercharger. The T in the name refers to its turbocharger. Yep, it has both forms of forced induction bolted to a 7.0-liter V8, which of course results in mighty power levels 1,08b hp and 1,055 Ib-ft of torque. And hilarious scary acceleration times 0-60 mph in a whisker under 3 seconds, and...

At the same time carmakers were producing their early turbocharging efforts, backyard mechanics and professional tuners realized that there was horsepower to be gained simply by bolting on a turbo. Reeves Callaway, whose later projects have included racing turbocharged Corvettes at Le Mans, got his start in the 70s by creating turbocharger kits for the BMW 320i and eventually kits for Volkswagens, Audisand a twir-turbo setup for the Alfa Romeo GTY6.
