2017 Zenvo TS1

Zenvo’ s genesis wasn’t exactly an easy one. The Danish manufacturer was founded in 2007 with the noblest of intentions – to make high-dollar, low-volume, ultra-high-performance sports cars for both the street and the track.

To order your new 2017 Zenvo TS1 with a brand new BMW V12 engine for only US$38,000.

The marque’s first model, the ST1, was released in 2009, and it looked like it met all the criteria, with an 800,000 euro price tag ($877,040 at current exchange rates, 03/02/2016), a production run of 15 units, and a 233-mph top speed. But there was a problem – it kept catching fire, first during a track test on Top Gear, then again at the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix. As you can imagine, Zenvo would like to put all that behind it, and as such, it’s unveiled a new model called the TS1, bearing improved aero, a dramatically updated interior, and a new twin-supercharged V-8.

Philosophically speaking, the TS1 follows closely in the footsteps of the ST1. It’s still a hand-built, outrageously powerful hypercar for the enormously well-to-do. However, Zenvo is quick to point out that this new model was carefully refined to meet customer demands, combining extreme performance with daily-driver comfort and high levels of customizability.

While the TS1 got its big reveal at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, Zenvo left a few important details up in the air. That said, there’s quite a bit left to explore here, so let’s check it out.

Taking responsibility for the exterior look is the same man who penned the ST1 – Zenvo’s Chief Designer, Christian Brandt, who also lists Alfa Romeo as a previous employer. Brandt says he was inspired by a vision of a “lioness stalking its prey” when coming up with the original sketches, but personally, I’m reminded of an exaggerated iteration of the Lexus LFA (granted, the LFA was released a year after the ST1, but still, the lines and shapes are undeniably similar).

Next to the ST1, the TS1’s lineage is obvious, as the two all-carbon bodies look nearly identical. However, take a closer look, and there are a few discernible changes, most of which pertain to increased downforce and improved aerodynamics.

Let’s start in front, 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.

Following up on its promise of customizability, Zenvo will paint your TS1 in any color you’d like.
