I had the incredible opportunity to take a first look and test drive in the new Zenvo TS-1 GT, a £1.1m Danish hypercar with 1,180PS. I stopped by the UK Zenvo dealer, Super Veloce Racing, to experience what this machine is all about. With an in house developed engine and gearbox, combined with dramatic styling, there is no question this thing is a seriously angry brute!
Powered by a 5.8l twin supercharged V8 with 1,163bhp and 1,100Nm of torque, and operated through a custom 7 speed dog tooth gearbox, the experience of the power is something crazy. With clunky shifts at low speed that become lightning speed at the red line when your foot is flat, it's a rather large challenge to drive the car properly and smoothly. Getting it right though, brings a smile to the face and a sense of old school reward that's rarely found in modern supercars.
A big thanks goes to Lee at SVR for the opportunity to come and drive the car, and of course also to Zenvo themselves.
