The company was founded some fifteen years ago by founder and CEO Radni Molhampour. Since then the Zyrus team has been racing over several seasons with both Lamborghini Super Trofeo and the Huracán EVO, 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 based 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 engineering for this extreme sport. The car took the Norwegian Extreme GT1+ overall Championship title in September 2020 and was runner up in 2021 with Norwegian driver Fredrik Sørlie at the wheel.
Zyrus Engineering also provides customer race support to drivers and teams in a range of Championships at home and abroad.
