The 233-mph one-off is called the 'most awesome Grand Tourer'.
Zenvo, a low-volume sports car manufacturer from Denmark, is going all out for its 10th anniversary celebrations at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. A one-off TS1 GT painted in Fjord Blue with copper/ bronze strips is set to grace the show floor, as an evolution of the TS1 introduced at the same event last year. The mid-engine supercar takes advantage of a full carbon fibre body, a lightweight steel/aluminium monocoque, and carbon ceramic ventilated brake discs to achieve a dry weight (without any fluids) of 1,580 kilograms.
Its heart and soul is a mighty 5.8-litre V8 engine with two superchargers to enable a staggering output of 1,163 horsepower at 7,700 rpm and a maximum torque of 811 lb-ft at the same rpm. All that power is channeled to the forged 20-inch rear wheels through a seven-speed gearbox backed by a Torsen limited-slip differential. Zenvo mentions the newly developed transmission provides “ultrafast gearshifts” almost on par with those of a Formula 1 car.
Take it to the track and the TS1 GT will do 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds en route to a top speed electronically capped at 233 mph.
Photos of the interior have not been provided, but Zenvo says the cabin has a non-asymmetrical design and uses a combination of leather and carbon fibre. Interestingly, the instrument surrounds along with the switches are made from copper and rhodium and cost roughly the same as a brand new Porsche 911 R, so somewhere in the region of £160,000. It took almost 8,000 man hours to complete the interior and all of the bits and pieces had to be tailor-made for the TS1 GT.
The press release is not saying anything about the supercar’s price tag, but Autocar has it on good authority Zenvo wants close to £1 million for its unique model.
