Zenvo TSR-S brings race-car performance to the road

Danish hypercar manufacturer, Zenvo, came to the limelight a few years ago when the Zenvo ST1 was released with 1104 hp. Now at the 2018 Geneva motor show, they’ve unveiled a new model with even more performance. Called the Zenvo TSR-S, it is essentially a track-focused, road-legal hypercar.

The supercar looks almost identical to the original ST1 and the TS1 that came after it. It looks very angry, staying true to Zenvo’s way of designing cars. The body of the Zenvo TSR-S is built from carbon fibre over an aluminium and steel monocoque. There are a few exterior updates though, mostly fueled by aerodynamics. The most significant of them is that massive rear wing which is going to help the Zenvo TSR-S glue itself down to the tarmac at very high speeds.

And it certainly will attain some pace. The 5.9-litre V8 flat-plane crank V8 fitted with two superchargers churns out 1,177 hp which is enough to power the car from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 325 kph. A motorsport-derived 7-speed paddle-shift gearbox will handle the power. There are three modes starting from 700 hp to switch between if you want the car to be a little more docile.

Don’t expect it to be comfortable though. As it is a track focused car, there are no creature comforts inside the cabin. Air conditioning, airbags and radios have given way for carbon-fibre seats and six-point harnesses to “add” lightness.

Zenvo plans to produce just 5 cars a year from its plant in Præstø, Denmark.
