263mph Zenvo TSR-GT targets McLaren Speedtail

Zenvo has revealed the low-drag TSR-GT targeting a record-breaking top speed

Danish supercar maker Zenvo Automotive is undergoing significant changes, with new leadership in the form of ex-Czinger boss Jens Sverdrup and an all-new, ground-up supercar coming in 2023. But before the next generation arrives, Zenvo’s giving its current TS platform an appropriate send off revealing the TSR-GT, a low-drag GT version of its hypercar targeting the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut and McLaren Speedtail.

Under the carbonfibre skin is the same 5.8-litre twin-supercharged flat plane crank V8 as the wild TSR-S, but a number of upgrades have been applied in order to reach a new 1360bhp output, up 183bhp on its sibling. A torque figure hasn’t been released, but expect it to exceed the 811lb ft of the standard car.

With fitment of a ‘Zenvo TS Power Pack’, the new TSR-GT receives an upgraded inlet plenum, exhaust manifold and a fresh ECU tune. A flex-fuel sensor has also been added to allow for the use of high-ethanol E85, alongside the ordinary pump fuel.

Like the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, Zenvo is targeting top speed for its TSR-GT, stripping the hypercar drag-inducing aero in order to achieve an impressive new 263mph top speed. Though not quite as high as the Jesko’s 310mph target, it exceeds the 250mph of the McLaren Speedtail. It’s not only tweaks to output and aero that achieve this new top speed, with Zenvo also having re-worked the eight-speed helical-cut transmission with a longer final drive. 

As with many low-drag supercars such as the McLaren Speedtail, part of cleaning up the car’s airflow includes new aero wheel disc covers, with the TSR-S’s active ‘Centripetal’ rear wing swapped for a static low-profile unit. Aside from the removal of the central roof-mounted intake though, changes elsewhere are limited.

Inside, exposed carbonfibre and Alcantara are swapped for luxurious leather on the dashboard, seats and steering wheel, with cabin noise also said to have been reduced with leather edged velour floor mats.

Just three examples of the Zenvo TSR-GT will be produced, but each has already been allocated to a buyer. Pricing hasn’t been disclosed, but its TSR-S counterpart starts from $1.45m.
