The Danish small volume manufacturers Zenvo shows the successor of the strictly limited ST1 in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show (March 3 to 13). The new vehicle goes by the name of TS1 and is an evolution of its predecessor.
In addition to a lower center of gravity, a new 5.9 liter supercharged V8 with flat plane crankshaft and intake manifolds made of carbon also ensures a top speed of electronically-controlled 375 km/h. The 1,104 HP and 1,050 Newton metres of torque are sent by a seven-speed transmission to the rear axle, which is optionally equipped with an automatic mode or a so-called "dog box". The latter version is the fastest transmission in the world, coming out with a clutch.
In design, the Danes still of the ST1 are done, so that outwardly little had to change. Only the aerodynamics areas on the front and rear have been revised. Also, a new exhaust system was bought the TS1, which rises from a new rear apron.
The Interior, Zenvo is trying something new time and sets off the driver's side in a contrasting colour to the remaining cockpit. Otherwise, it is typical of Hypercar inside: much carbon, Alcantara and leather. In the Zenvo TSR shown also in Geneva it is clearly spartanischer. The concept of race car comes with a roll cage, bucket seats and harness straps. (mf)
