What's this then?

This is a Zenvo TSR-S from the Danish supercar maker and...

Hang on, Danish? As in Sandi Toksvig, Danish?

Yep. Denmark has its own supercar maker, and it's Zenvo. And following on from the TS supercar, the TSR track day car and the TS1 GT racer, this is the TSR-S, which seeks to tread the middle-ground between everyday supercar and racing machine.

Got lots of power, has it?

Oh yes. 700hp.

Doesn't sound like a lot.

Sorry, that's with the 5.8-litre, twin-supercharged V8 engine (bespoke made for Zenvo by a US contractor, apparently) in 'Minimum' mode. There's also an IQ mode, which alters the engine's output according to the road conditions.

And...?

And a 'Maximum' mode that unleashes the full 1,177hp. That's enough to push the Zenvo, via its seven-speed paddle-shift gearbox, to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds, and to 124mph in 6.8 seconds. Its top speed is 202mph, if you were wondering. Troels Vollertsen, Chief Technical Officer and founder of the company, explains: "In developing the TSR-S, the utmost dedication and ambition of our team has driven us to achieve unprecedented levels of aerodynamic engineering capability for a road-going car. By converging the individual performance characteristics of the exceptional TS1 GT hypercar with the savage TSR track car we have created the ultimate Zenvo. The TSR-S is a once-in-a-generation car with cutting-edge technologies that will define new boundaries in automotive engineering, and will rightfully place it in the very highest echelons of the hypercar world."

Must have some tricks to keep all that power on the island...

Actually, Copenhagen is built on several islands, but yes - the Zenvo has a centripetal rear wing.

Come again?

Centripetal. It's the opposite of centrifugal, which is the force that tries to push objects to the outside of a curve. The Zenvo's rear wing twists and rotates to try and get the aerodynamics to do the opposite of centrifugal force, to point the car tighter into a corner. Vollertsen explains: "The Centripetal Wing is an exceptional development that allows for increased grip and higher cornering speed. Whereas most supercars only achieve optimum downforce in cornering at a certain speed, the multi-rotational function of the wing distributes downforce in an innovative way to deliver the optimum amount of cornering grip at any speed. Whilst lifting to boost downforce, the wing also tilts while cornering - for example, lifting the left side of the wing when cornering left and vice versa, to propel the car to the inside of the corner, ensuring exceptional stability and grip."

Anything else?

The cabin is all stripped out, although buyers can start specifying in extra toys if they like, and there's a retro-eighties-style racing instrument display. Peter Van Rooy, Zenvo Marketing Director, explains: "Like all of our cars, the Zenvo TSR-S is 100% Danish-designed and hand-built in an extremely limited number. Each car is fully customisable and built to order, tailored according to the precise specifications of the discerning client. As an example, small details may hint at the nationality of the owner, such as a subtle expression of their country's flag in designated locations in the cockpit, engine bay and the exterior graphic. We call it 'Patriotic Ownership', and it is reminiscent of heritage vehicles such as original Minis that carried British flag decals."
