Our own Mike Brewer got the chance to get behind the wheel of Zenvo Automotive’s TSR-S on a recent visit to Caffeine & Machine.
Wheeler Dealers’ Mike Brewer got the opportunity to witness one of the world’s fastest accelerating rear-wheel drive cars in action, with him in the driver’s seat of Zenvo Automotive’s TSR-S.
The TSR-S features an in-house developed 1,177bhp 5.8-litre twin-supercharged flat-plane V8 engine, which is coupled with a motorsport-derived gearbox, to propel it from standstill to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds. It takes less than 6.8 seconds for it to reach 200km/h, with its top speed is electronically limited to 325km/h.
With a full carbon body – honed to exceptionally high-quality standards in-house – it weighs in at 1,495kg (dry weight). All that power is transferred to the road via Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, and is kept under control by a patented active Centripetal wing.
This distinctive Zenvo innovation has the ability to change the angle of attack in two different axis. Under braking, it creates additional drag and acts as an air brake, while in cornering it distributes downforce to the inner side of the car to minimise vehicle roll. The lateral angle of attack can change by up to 20 degrees, giving the Centripetal wing a significant advantage over other market solutions.
A dual gearbox set up allows drivers to switch between a standard road gearbox configuration and a brutal mechanical direct power-shift race set-up, again all developed in-house by Zenvo’s expert team of engineers.
Hand built at Zenvo’s headquarters in Præstø, Denmark, just five of the brand’s models are manufactured by the specialist team each year, utilising its comprehensive in-house manufacturing capabilities.
Zenvo Automotive has expanded its European dealer, servicing and maintenance network with the addition of UK prestige vehicle specialist, Centurian Automotive. The new UK partnership will be marked by a dynamic demonstration of Zenvo Automotive’s track-focused TSR-S at Supercar Fest: The Runway, held at Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, on 30 May 2021.
Angela Kashina, CEO of Zenvo Automotive, said: “The reception to Zenvo Automotive in the UK has been fantastic, and we’re very excited to share the TSR-S with those who have been so supportive of the brand. There are a lot of people eager to get behind the wheel of the car, as well as see it in action, and we will be revealing our UK event calendar in the coming weeks.”
