Details of the stunning new Zenvo model are being kept closely under wraps in advance of the Geneva show. It will be the third model in the Danish company’s line-up following the success of the twin supercharged TS1 GT and TSR models, and Zenvo’s CEO Angela Kashina expects even the most demanding of hypercar enthusiasts to be delighted at this latest development.
“With everything now in place to launch this fantastic new model onto the market it is hard for us to wait patiently for the Geneva International Motor Show to share this car with the world. The fact that we are holding back to the opening day of the exhibition on March 6 is a testimony to how much we value this event. As a European hypercar brand Geneva offers an unrivalled opportunity to connect with an international audience. This is the fifth consecutive occasion that Zenvo has presented itself at the show and we have always been impressed with the phenomenal response from visitors in the know. There can be no better platform to make a splash with our latest new innovation.”

In the run-up to this milestone moment in Zenvo’s journey, the company has launched a unique photo campaign to capture the exclusive essence of the brand. After a meticulous selection process among like-minded automotive professionals, Zenvo chose photographers from around the world to support a global campaign. All have a large following on social media and are well known for their distinctive work within the world of cars.
Each photographer will spend time making a dedicated shoot at special locations, with the Zenvo TS1 GT playing the main role in the visual storytelling. Starting this January, Zenvo will publish its favourite photo from the different shoots on its digital channels Instagram and Facebook each month. Once all the photos have been published in December 2018, the public will be given the chance to vote for the winning photographer with the best single exposure picture on Zenvo’s website.
“The concept is to hold a photo campaign which showcases the work of today’s most talked-about professionals and their individual approach and style,” explains Zenvo’s Marketing Director Peter Van Rooy. “Moving away from the somewhat traditional marketing of supercars, we are looking for the captivating stories that these exceptional photographers will portray with our car. The campaign will offer an inspiring new take on how a leading hypercar brand and product is presented.”
The participating photographers are Bas Fransen (the Netherlands), Amy Shore (UK), Adam Bornstein (US), Fred Atkins (UK), John Zhang (US), Zach Brehl (Canada), Pepper Yandell (US), Huseyin Erturk (TUR), Domenic Staelberg (Germany), Jeremy Cliff (US), Alex Penfold (UK), Darryll Jones (South Africa) and Kevin McCauley (US).
ABOUT ZENVO AUTOMOTIVE A/S
Zenvo creates 100% Danish-Designed hand-built sports cars since 2007. The company was formed as a channel for the aspirations of a group of highly talented Danish engineers and designers with extensive experience gained from working with Italian and German automotive companies. Led by powertrain specialist Troels Vollertsen, with the design and styling vision of ex-RCA graduate Christian Brandt, the team aimed to build a car which combined the traditional skills of Danish styling with motorsports-derived high performance technology.
Functionalistic and immediately aesthetically iconic, the Zenvo ST1 was developed over six years to demonstrate the use of ultra-lightweight composite materials in a car capable of performing alongside the finest supercars. A uniquely designed and engineered engine of 6.9 litres was produced for the ST1 incorporating both a supercharger and turbocharger in a car made primarily from carbon fibre while featuring an aluminium and steel safety cell which tests proved to offer the ideal passenger environment for safety and comfort.
In 2016 Zenvo presented an evolution of the ST1, the TS1 GT, along with its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR. These cars featured a completely new in-house developed 5.8-litre lightweight twin-supercharged flat-plane V8 engine producing 1102 bhp. The engine boasts a dry sump and flat-plane crankshaft configuration allowing it to spin more freely, rev much higher, produce power more efficiently and be mounted lower in the body for improved handling. Uniquely developed software for the Zenvo-designed motorsports-derived paddle shift 7-speed dogleg gearbox provides one of the fastest-shifting powertrains in existence.
With a maximum production of just five cars a year, Zenvo cars are ultra-rare and collectible. They offer the ultimate combination of design, high performance, engaging and pure driving characteristics, bespoke materials, craftsmanship and exclusivity.
