The TS1 GT Design New Era Zenvo 2017 10th Anniversary

The TS1 GT Design New Era Zenvo 2017 10th AnniversaryZenvo Automotive has hit the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a 1,163bhp-1,100Nm rocket punch called the Zenvo TS1 GT. A 5.8-liter twin-supercharged V8 churns out all the brute power and torque as it is mated with a 7-speed sequential racing gearbox with helical-cut gears. The gearbox which has been developed in-house by Zenvo themselves is capable of shifting gears in 40 milliseconds. That’s more or less the same time taken by an F1 car to shift gears. The carbon-bodied, 2-seater, mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive supercar from the Danish carmaker has been built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company.

The carmaker hasn’t revealed the actual performance figures of the Zenvo TS1 GT. But given that the standard version of the car which was revealed last year had an electronically-limited top whack of 373kph and a 0-100kph dash time 2.8 seconds, the Zenvo TS1 GT will be topping those numbers for sure. There are rumors of the hypercar being capable of clocking 402kph. Expected to be priced at around $1.2 million a piece, the Zenvo TS1 GT has a special Fjord Blue paint job with copper and bronze accenting stripes and 20-inch forged wheels.

The front of this Supercar where the splitter was clearly made much deeper. On the sides, small winglets were added to help guide air along the flanks and towards intakes in the rear, feeding the twin intercoolers for improved engine performance. The intakes also get their own vertical splitter elements for better chiller efficiency. In back, the rear wing was made much taller, gaining an additional 5 degrees of angle for more downforce, balancing out the changes made up front. The rear diffuser is also more aggressive. Further aero improvements come from the relocated exhaust outlets, which were moved inwards, just above the new diffuser.

Zenvo calls the changes “subtle,” reiterating that it did the job right the first time around, and that the minor tweaks were added for extra high-speed performance and a slightly sharper look. The wheels are made from forged aluminum and come with motorsport-style center locks. As you’d expect, the rollers are massive, measuring in at 9.5×19 inches in front and 12.5×20 inches in back.

Luckily, Zenvo addressed this issue with a total revamp of the cabin space. Not only is it supposedly much more comfortable, it actually looks like a proper hypercar cockpit now. There’s a new steering wheel, new seats, a new dashboard, and a new center console, and the color scheme offsets the driving position with a contrasting hue, emphasizing the “driver oriented” feel.

While not the craziest interior I’ve ever seen (Pagani, anyone?), the TS1 is a huge improvement over the ST1. Everything is geometric and sharp, manifesting that futuristic atmosphere needed for a car in this segment. There are hexagons everywhere – in the upholstery quilting, steering wheel, buttons, and console surrounds, all of which echo the shape of the front fascia. I also really like the climate control vents, which are segmented into three individual outlets.
