2023 Zenvo TSR-GT

The Danish company Zenvo Automotive has revealed its new TSR-GT hypercar, which will be produced in only three copies. The first information about this company appeared a few years ago when the company introduced an active wing on its TSR-S model.

The new TSR-GT has a fixed rear wing that, in addition to other changes to the bodywork, gives the car better aerodynamics but also enables a higher maximum speed compared to previous models.

“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, all of which are allocated to global collectors, much like Tim Burton’s TSR-S, which he took delivery of this year,” said Zenvo’s Chief Commercial Officer and Chairman of the Board, Jens Sverdrup.

The TSR-GT is powered by a 5.8-liter twin-supercharged flat-plane V8 engine with 1,360 hp (1,000 kW), which is enough to propel the car to a top speed of 263 mph (424 km/h). In order to achieve this speed, the engineers equipped the car with a new type of aero wheel disc cover, designed to reduce drag. The engine is paired with a helical-cut dog-engagement transmission.

The cars will be produced in the Danish factory. All three cars have already been sold for an unknown price. The GT follows the track-only TSR model we saw in 2016, as well as the TS1 GT and TSR-S that arrived later.
