Zenvo Automotive A/S (‘Zenvo’), the Danish high-performance automotive company, has unveiled its new model at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. The Zenvo TSR-S is positioned between the company’s TS1 GT car and its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR, combining phenomenal on-road capabilities with ultimate exclusivity. The Zenvo TSR-S is a street legal version of the TSR – hence the ‘S’ in the model name. Featuring an innovative and striking new active multi-axis Centripetal Wing and an in-house developed twin supercharged V8 engine, production of the TSR-S is now underway within Zenvo’s limited production of just five cars a year.
Setting the car apart from its rivals, the TSR-S incorporates manually-adjustable performance settings including a variable power output. In addition, the unique dual gearbox set-up can switch between a standard road gearbox configuration and a brutal mechanical direct power-shift race set-up that delivers a genuine race car experience on the track. The TSR-S has been completely redesigned and reengineered for optimum aerodynamic performance. This, combined with a further improved active rear differential and an advanced traction control system, helps the TSR-S to deliver an unrivalled performance on the road, for a genuinely unique hypercar experience.
Troels Vollertsen, Chief Technical Officer and Founder of the company, explains: “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.”
A total of five cars are allocated annually, which makes it unlikely for owners to ever encounter another Zenvo in the wild. Unique to the exclusive world of hypercar ownership, Zenvo offers its clients a bespoke personalised watermark graphic set beneath the high-gloss finish on the carbon fibre panels, using a meticulous process carried out by master craftsmen. To demonstrate, the TSR-S show car presented in Geneva features a unique graphic that features elements of the Zenvo logo. The smooth graphic starts at the bonnet, continues over the roof and concludes at the rear, including on the Centripetal Wing.
Peter Van Rooy, Zenvo Marketing Director, explains: “Like all of our cars, the Zenvo TSR-S is 100% Danish-designed and hand-built in an extremely limited number. Each car is fully customisable and built to order, tailored according to the precise specifications of the discerning client. As an example, small details may hint at the nationality of the owner, such as a subtle expression of their country’s flag in designated locations in the cockpit, engine bay and the exterior graphic. We call it ‘Patriotic Ownership’, and it is reminiscent of heritage vehicles such as original Minis that carried British flag decals.”
The Zenvo TSR-S also celebrates the wider wonders of nature, demonstrated in the display model for Geneva in a lustrous ‘Laguna Roja’ paint finish, representing the rich hues of the freshwater ‘Red Lagoon’ in Chile. This stunning colour is highlighted by orange accents symbolising the motorsports theme.
