Zenvo has revealed a new track-focused and road-legal hypercar – the TSR-S. The car uses a ramped up edition of its flat-plane crank V-8, and puts out 1,193 hp. On show at the Geneva motor show, the mid-engine two-door has about 14hp over the TS1 GT, which it is based on. It has an all-carbon-fibre body built over a steel and aluminium monocoque.

Zenvo’s 5.8-litre engine uses a trio of superchargers to offer muscular performance, enabling a 0-100kph time of 2.8sec and 0-200kph time of 6.8sec in the TSR-S in the TSR-S – identical to the McLaren Senna. Its top speed is limited to 325kph. The car’s powertrain can be set through three modes that adjust power from 710hp to its peak output. Drive for the 1,495kg TSR-S is sent through a seven-speed, paddle-shift gearbox with straight-cut gears.

The car features a new outside design with race-inspired aerodynamics, with the key component for downforce an active back wing. To keep weight down, the cabin features only the bare essentials, so there’s no air-conditioning, radio or airbags. Instead, there are carbon seats and six-point harnesses. Pricing is unconfirmed but based on its pricing for the TS1 GT, it’s likely to be upward of Rs 10.8 crore – which seems justified, considering Zenvo produces just five cars, every year, from its facility in Præstø, Denmark.
