New Zenvo Hypercar Comes With V12, Can Produce Up To 1,800 HP

It was 2018 and the event was the Geneva Motor Show. A Danish automaker has presented a multi-million dollar hypercar called the TSR-S, which can sprint from rest to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.8 seconds. Company? Zenvo, and it looks like the exotic automaker is looking to make headlines again next year.

In the confirmation made for upper teeth, Chairman and CCO Jens Sverdrup said that a V12-powered Zenvo hypercar is in the works. The design is a secret at this time but it is likely that buyers have been given an exclusive preview. The public debut will occur in 2023.

Sverdrup has made no secret of the details of the upcoming hypercar. He told the publication that the unnamed car will have a new modular carbon fiber chassis, along with a new gearbox, a modular V12 engine, and an electric drivetrain. All of these elements must be designed and built in-house.

Unlike the supercharged Zenvo TSR-S, the upcoming hypercar will have two electric turbochargers connected to a factory V12, for a total of 1,200 horsepower (895 kilowatts). The target, however, is up to 1,800 hp (1,342 kW), which must be achieved through the use of an electric motor.

Sverdrup also shared that there are two versions being planned. One of them is a hybrid GT, with an electric motor mounted on the front axle for all-wheel drive. However, this is still under discussion at this time. Meanwhile, the second version is said to be track focused (but still road legal) and could feature some aero elements for better downforce. The target weight was 2,756 pounds (1,250 kilograms), according to the publication.

Pricing is also undisclosed at this time, but given the company’s previous cars, such as the $1.2 million Zenvo TS1 GT, we weren’t expecting anything less.
