If that sounds too good to be true, we really don’t blame you for thinking so. Most cars capable of 1177 HP aren’t street-legal. Actually, there aren’t a lot of cars with that much horsepower to begin with. But Denmark’s first hypercar maker isn’t known for resting on their laurels. The Zenvo TSR-S was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and is a hybrid between Zenvo’s TS1-GT and the TSR, it’s racetrack-ready counterpart. The “S” in the name denotes that “street-legal” factor.
Under the TSR-S’s hood is a Zenvo 5.8-litre V8 flatplane, with Twin Centrifugal Superchargers and sequential fuel injection. It creates a whopping 1177 horsepower, all channeled into a Paddle shift 7-speed gearbox, which includes helical-cut dog gears. Top speed is electronically limited to 202 MPH, and it can hit 0-60 in less than 2.8 seconds, and 0-124 in 6.8. Impressive.
To make sure the body can handle all that power, Zenvo has equipped the car with a Lightweight steel/aluminium semi-monocoque, with front and rear racing steel sub-frames, and entirely carbon-fiber body. The whole thing is designed with aerodynamics in mind; it has a front splitter designed to increase front to rear downforce and keep the car on the ground, and it features what Zenvo calls a “Centripetal Wing”, which has two degrees of give, so it can be an air break and stabilize the car around corners. Lastly, they equipped the rear with a diffuser, which extracts air from underneath the car.
All, that, and it weighs only 3296 pounds. To cut down on weight, they’ve ditched a lot of otherwise standard features, like a sound system, air-condition and airbags. (So maybe not a good daily driver….)
Rounding out the ensemble are Carbon ceramic discs with six-piston calipers, and forged aluminum wheels, equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
Sound like something you’d like to try out? Zenvo produces only 5 TSR-S’ a year – and there is still no word on price.
