The brand new TSR-GT adopts a set rear wing and acts because the swan tune for the TS lineup whereas serving as a low-drag, high-speed spinoff. Modifications to the physique make the hypercar as slippery as attainable to unlock a better prime pace in comparison with earlier TS-based derivatives.
Apart from aero enhancements – which embrace an extended rear wing and an aero wheel disc cowl – the TSR-GT additionally makes use of a much more highly effective engine. The dual-supercharged (sure, twin) V8 has a 5.8-liter displacement and produces a colossal 1,360 horsepower.

Zenvo has additionally created new velour flooring mats (with a leather-based edge) it says decrease the noise that goes inside.
Solely three hand-built automobiles will see the sunshine of day and all of them have already been bought for an unspecified price ticket. The GT follows the unique track-only TSR from 2016 and the following TS1 GT and TSR-S hypercars. The latter will stay in manufacturing in the interim.
An all-new mannequin is scheduled for a market launch within the third quarter of 2023. Zenvo says it would make the most of a V12 with twin electrical turbochargers to develop 1,200 hp, plus an electrical motor to take the mixed output to 1,500 hp or presumably as a lot as 1,800 hp.
