Danish Hypercar Manufacturer Zenvo Just Unveiled A 1,177 HP Street Legal Version Of Its GT Car
Danish hypercar manufacturer Zenvo Automotive knows what we like so they just made a street legal (barely) version of their TS1 GT car available to the public and unveiled it at the Geneva International Motor Show.
The Zenvo TSR-S (the S stands for Street) is a crossover between the Zenvo TS1 GT car and its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR.
Troels Vollertsen, Chief Technical Officer and Founder of the company, explained, “In developing the TSR-S, the utmost dedication and ambition of our team has driven us to achieve unprecedented levels of aerodynamic engineering capability for a road-going car. By converging the individual performance characteristics of the exceptional TS1 GT hypercar with the savage TSR track car we have created the ultimate Zenvo. The TSR-S is a once-in-a-generation car with cutting-edge technologies that will define new boundaries in automotive engineering, and will rightfully place it in the very highest echelons of the hypercar world.”
He’s not kidding, either. The ground-breaking rear wing on the TSR-S alone is enough to make your jaw drop.
Vollertsen explains, “The Centripetal Wing is an exceptional development that allows for increased grip and higher cornering speed. Whereas most supercars only achieve optimum downforce in cornering at a certain speed, the multi-rotational function of the wing distributes downforce in an innovative way to deliver the optimum amount of cornering grip at any speed. Whilst lifting to boost downforce, the wing also tilts while cornering – for example, lifting the left side of the wing when cornering left and vice versa, to propel the car to the inside of the corner, ensuring exceptional stability and grip.”
In other words, when the TSR-S corners, the wing rotates relative to the car’s longitudinal axis, boosting inner tire grip and cornering stability. Watch…
That’s… just… ridiculous.
So is this… The TSR-S has three settings for its 5.8-liter capacity V8 engine with twin superchargers – Minimum (700 HP), IQ, and Maximum (1,177 HP at 8,500 RPM). 1,177 horsepower. No wonder it can hit 100 KMH in just 2.8 seconds and 200 KMH in just 6.8 seconds.
The inside of the car is equally insane as all surfaces have been stripped back to expose the structural carbon fiber, with parts upholstered in Alcantara only where it is necessary to eliminate reflections in the windscreen.
Production of the TSR-S is now underway within Zenvo’s limited production of just five cars a year so yeah, this is about as close as you are ever going to get to seeing one.
