This Latest Zenvo TSR-S Could Be The Most Stunning Yet

/ Comments

And there's more to come from the Danish hypercar manufacturer.

Zenvo hasn't been in the hypercar business as long as, say, Ferrari, McLaren, Bugatti, or even relative newcomers like Pagani and Koenigsegg, for that matter. But it's moving at a suitably fast pace. What we have here is the latest product of its considerable forward momentum.

It's the newest example of the Zenvo TSR-S - the barely street-legal model which blends the best elements of the TS1 road car and the TSR track machine, and packs a massive 1,177 horsepower. And along with it, the Danish boutique hypercar manufacturer has announced some exciting innovations to come.

First, the car at hand. It boasts a 5.8-liter V8, mounted amidship and augmented by a pair of centrifugal superchargers - the resulting output of which comes to a massive 1,117 horsepower. Channeled to the rear wheels through a seven-speed sequential gearbox developed in-house, it'll run to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and won't stop pulling until it's reached its 202-mph limiter.

The carbon-fiber bodywork on this particular example has been done up in a rather fetching combination of white, black, and blue. It rides on particularly stunning fully fragmented carbon fiber wheels, with a giant, adaptive centripetal rear wing.

It's a nice bit of kit, to say the least, for €1.45 million (or $1.63m in American greenbacks), and Zenvo will only make five of them each year at its workshop in Praesto - just down the Baltic coast from the capital Copenhagen. But it's already looking towards the next step. And that comes down to the gearbox.

The seven-speed transmission already encompasses unique features like helical-cut dog gears and a switch to change it from Road mode (in which gearchanges are electronically smoothed out) to Race mode (which bangs the changes home faster and more brutally). But Zenvo is working to introduce an electric module to the transmission.

That, in short, will turn that the hypercar into a hybrid. The electric motor will also serve to back the car up, allowing Zenvo to replace the current mechanical reverse gear with an eighth forward cog.

That all sounds pretty good to us, and we're looking forward to seeing what the electrical assist will do for an already blazingly quick performance machine. If the precedent set by vehicles like the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari SF90 Stradale, and Koenigsegg Regera give us any indication, it ought to emerge as one heck of a beast.
