Debut at Geneva International Motor Show 2018
At the Geneva International Motor Show 2018, Zenvo unveiled the new TSR-S model. The Zenvo TSR-S is a crossover design between the TSR and the TS1 GT. Basically, the “S” extension stands for street legal. With a basis in a race car, the TSR-S contains top notch aerodynamics. The braking, cornering, and stability withhold new innovative features. Most noteworthy, the TSR-S has an active Centripetal Wing. This wing actively functions to optimize high-speed cornering and stability.
5.8-Liter Twin Supercharger Engine
The Zenvo TSR-S is a performance beast under the hood. Surprisingly, the TSR-S sports a 25.8-liter V8 engine with twin centrifugal superchargers. This motor build boasts a whopping 1,177 base horsepower… phew! The engine works in combo with a paddle shift 7-speed gearbox. Furthermore, this gearbox has helical-cut dog gears. On top of this, the engine features sequential fuel injection. From 0 to 60 mph, the TSR-S takes only 2.8 seconds. Amazingly, the TSR-S can reach 124 mph in only 6.8 seconds. The top speed of this model will be 202 mph which is electronically limited.
The Aerodynamics of the TSR-S
In addition to the powerful engine, the Zenvo TSR-S has a high-grade aerodynamic design. Firstly, the front splitter design improves front to rear downforce distribution. With the front wheel housing outlets, the front-end design decreases front wheel wake and directs air to intercoolers. Secondly, the rear of the TSR-S has an air scoop and new diffuser. These work to optimize underbody air extraction and decrease rear tire wake. Finally, the Centripetal Wing works with two rotation degrees of freedom. This allows the wing to actively act as an air break and cornering stabilizer. Simply put, the rear wing can actively tilt in cornering to maximize performance.
