The 1,177-HP Zenvo TSR-S Is the Hottest Danish Export Since Nina Agdal
They’re only building five of these $1.4 million beauties a year.
The TSR-S is something of a combination of Zenvo’s TS1 grand tourer and the track-focused TSR.
It employs the same twin-turbocharged V8 powerplant and seven-speed racing-style gearbox as the TSR, with software to tame them for the street. That means a 700-horsepower setting for the engine and an “IQ” setting that lets the computer choose the output somewhere between that and the 1,177-horsepower maximum, depending on conditions.
The transmission, meanwhile, has Street and Race settings. Thanks it its race-ready design, the gearbox can bang off lightning-fast 40-millisecond gear changes, but in street mode it slows them down for smoother shifts. In race mode, the company terms the shifts as “brutal.” You were warned.
The TSR-S’s most obvious feature is its innovative movable rear wing, which tilts to help the car go around turns like a banking aircraft. “It is not just a gimmick,” pledges Zenvo founder and chief technical officer, Troels Vollertsen. “It is really effective.”
This speedster is incredible, but Zenvo can only build five of them a year, Vollertsen reports. However, the company is developing a successor model suitable for real production, which will make it easier for us to get our hands on the next Zenvo.
