Zyrus Engineering is a specialist low volume car manufacturer and engineering company located 50km north of Norway’s capital city of Oslo.
From the outset, we have focused on being an innovative company that dares to make unconventional design choices, pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering and turning our dreams into reality.
The company was founded some fifteen years ago by founder and CEO Radni Molhampour. Since then the Zyrus team have been actively racing over several seasons with both Lamborghini Super Trofeo and the Huracán, in one of Europe’s most extreme race series, the Norwegian Extreme GT1+ category. This has offered up unique expertise in developing extreme horsepower cars in particular.
In 2018 the company developed a prototype car and engineered a bespoke twin turbo system on the Super Trofeo platform. The Zyrus LP1200 R race car is built to perform in all areas and is customized to handle all modifications with its very unique aero solution and the engineering for this extreme for of motorsport. The car took the Norwegian Extreme GT+ overall Championship title in September 2020 and runners up in 2021.
Zyrus LP1200 machines are proven to be both hyper-fast and reliable and the programme of testing expanded to extreme hot conditions in the Middle East at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi and Dubai Autodrome in 2019 with pro developments drivers Fredrik Sørlie and LMP racing driver Oliver Webb.
Further testing resumed the following year 2020 at Spa-Francorchamps, where the car achieved a 2:20m lap time on a supercar track day and on the Nürburgring the car confidently achieved a 6:48m on a full lap (20.830 km /12.943 mi) during a mixed trackday/ test day, and after overtaking 10 cars on that lap, this time is firmly in the top 10 fastest ever lap times of some manufacturers who hire the circuit privately.
In 2021 Zyrus Engineering started to develop the road legal version the LP1200 Strada, and work commenced on building a machine to suit both track day reliability and road going compliance. With all carbon fiber production, engineering and painting done inhouse, the team has complete control of every design and production detail.
In May 2023 the LP1200 Strada was revealed as a world first to be certified by TÜV Rheinland.
With over with over 18,000 km completed Zyrus Engineering aims to continuously develop high-tech vehicles in-house together with our trusted partners and co-operators.
Our company identity is based on Norwegian core values such as Quality, Solidarity and Integrity.
We feel that we comply this intention and look forward to write Zyrus’s story further. We are #BuildingDreams
