Danish hyper-car manufacturer Zenvo recently revealed its TSR-S, a 1,177bhp twin-supercharged V8 street-legal variant of the TSR track car.
It is priced at 1.45 million euros, and production will be limited to five cars per year. It has had numerous‘bespoke touches’ and is the first car to feature ‘full fragmented carbon-fibre wheels’ (designed, developed and built
in-house by Zenvo) as well as individual weave designs within the exposed carbon-fibre body sections.
These new weave patterns, which can be tailored to the client’s specification, are formed within the carbon fibre and are hand-laid by Zenvo’s craftsmen.
So too are the new fragmented carbon wheels, with each ‘minute fragment’ hand-cut and ‘expertly layered’ to create the special finish; moreover, they weigh some 15kg less than the aluminium variants. Each wheel takes two technicians about one week to create.
Also unveiled was the latest drivetrain development from Zenvo, a hybrid variant of the seven-speed sequential gearbox (with helical-cut dog gears) that has become a trademark of the brand.
This gearbox offers the driver two modes, Road and Race. In Road mode, the changes are electronically assisted to remove the usual harshness of a traditional ‘dog-box’, while Race mode allows very fast and direct mechanical changes (usually only offered in fully fledged racing cars).
The latest development of this innovative gearbox (www.zenvoautomotive.com
) is the addition of a hybrid module, which provides a power boost, further traction control and even the addition of an eighth forward gear (with the electric motor providing reverse drive).
