Zenvo has increased the top speed of its TSR hypercar to make it one of the world’s fastest cars, but just three will be made.
Zenvo has launched an ultra-exclusive grand tourer that features significantly upgraded performance, an aerodynamic, streamlined design and a more luxurious interior than that of the firm’s ‘standard’ TSR hypercar.
The Zenvo TSR-GT, which is limited to just three examples that have already been sold, is the final model to use the firm’s TS platform. Zenvo says it features a low-drag design with improved dynamics and a higher top speed than the standard Zenvo TSR.
Behind the driver is a 5.8-litre flat-plane V8 engine with twin superchargers, equipped with a new performance pack that includes upgrades to the transmission, power unit and exhaust manifold. Zenvo also says the racer can run on high-ethanol E85 fuel.
The changes increase the power output to 1014kW – 136kW more than the standard TSR. Top speed also jumps from 325km/h to a staggering 423km/h (limited), owing in part to a longer spoiler and new aerodynamic wheel discs, both made from carbonfibre.
That puts the Danish hypercar ahead of the Rimac Nevera, officially the world’s fastest electric production car (415km/h), but just behind the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ (limited to 439km/h) in terms of top speed.
Inside, the TSR-GT gains leather trim, which replaces other materials around the cabin. The Alcantara steering wheel, dashboard and seat trim are all swapped for leather alternatives, with noise-reducing, leather-edged floor mats.
Zenvo chairman Jens Sverdrup said: “A new era for Zenvo beckons, but before then, we’ve created our interpretation of a GT variant of the TS platform. We’ll make just three models.
“The final edition of the TS Zenvo platform – the TSR-GT – warrants a drastic styling change, yet remains in keeping with the traditional Zenvo aesthetic. This is a fitting addition to the TS platform, which has spanned across four models.”
The TS platform has been used for four hypercars: the race-only TSR, TS1 GT, TSR-S and now the TSR-GT. Sverdrup said the GT could be the final model to use the platform.
Each car is hand-built at Zenvo’s factory in Denmark. Prices for the three sold units were not detailed, but we’d expect the GT to command a higher premium than the TSR-S, which was priced at $2.33 million in 2021.
