Production-ready Zenos E10 S debuts at the 2015 Autosport International show, featuring a design by automotive design consultancy Drive Design

During last week’s 2015 Autosport International Show, the first production-ready model of the £29,995 E10 S sports car was launched.

Featuring a bold ‘intelligent’ design by Surrey-based consultancy Drive Design, this sub-£30k track-day screamer is the first of the company’s new range of accessible sports cars.

The words ‘sportscar’ and ‘affordable’ are not usually found in the same sentence however, in 2012 Zenos Cars approached Drive Design with plans to build a completely new British sports car brand around a mid-engined, carbon-tubbed trackday car priced at less than £25K.

Engineer Your Future opened at the Science Museum in London on 17 December 2014. This free exhibition will run for three years

Wondering what to do with the kids during the Christmas break? Why not take a trip into London and visit the Science Museum’s latest exhibition Engineer Your Future.

Aimed at 11 to 15 year olds, the hope is that this interactive exhibition with the hashtag #EngineerYour Future will inspire and engage young people with engineering.

It reveals compelling stories of the women and men who work in engineering today. Engineers developing faster racing yachts, safer building design for areas at risk of tsunamis and smarter artificial hands are featured in a short film (which is pasted below) whilst the cutting-edge prototypes on display illustrate how engineers improve and test their ideas.
