PER­FEC­TION

- Im­ages © ZENVO Denmark · United Kingdom

Den­mark is of­ten re­ferred to as the “hap­pi­est coun­try in the world”. How­ever, there’s also a five-let­ter word as­so­ci­ated with it that can, in some in­stances, have a side­ef­fect of cre­at­ing some­thing closely re­lated to hap­pi­ness – ela­tion per­haps? It’s called Zenvo and it’s a Dan­ish hy­per­car-maker that throws any sort of cau­tion to the wind. Its lat­est model, the TSRS-1, fea­tures a twin-su­per­charged V8 en­gine that pro­duces 878 kW and takes care of the zero to 100 km/h sprint in a hur­ried 2.8 sec­onds. But it’s more than the sum of brute force that helps this hy­per­car per­form on this level since Zenvo seems to have rewrit­ten the laws of physics with equip­ment, like a cen­tripetal rear wing that re­acts to even the mi­nut­est of steer­ing in­puts. Pro­duc­tion is limited to five units per year with a price tag that will set po­ten­tial buy­ers back R28m, ex­clud­ing tax. Zenvo un­veiled their lat­est model to the world at this year’s Sa­lon Privé in the UK.
