The supercar manufacturer originating from Denmark has unveiled in front of the worldwide audience of the 88th Geneva International Auto Show the TSR-S street-legal supercar, a modified version of the TSR racer.
Lat year in Geneva they were showcasing the Zenvo TS1 GT and now at the same event in Switzerland they’re back to form a three-model family with the arrival of the TSR-S – “combining phenomenal on-road capabilities with ultimate exclusivity,” the TSR-S will only be offered in a very exclusive production run of just five units (yep, it seems five is the way to go for exclusivity, Italdesign Zerouno Duerta concurs). The TSR-S isn’t exactly anything else other than a chip off the old TS family block, but at least the Danish manufacturer comes with innovations such as the very interesting Centripetal Wing.
The idea behind it is to deliver two rotational axes, meaning it can perform as both an air break and a cornering stabilizer – during these maneuvers there’s added downforce thanks to the wing’s longitudinal rotation. “The TSR-S wing concept is able to maintain the high downforce and generate a large inwards directed force,” comments Kasper Damkjær, senior fluid mechanics specialist. “When the wing is tilted, downforce is only decreased by 3%, while an inward directed force of 30% of the wing downforce is generated.”
Motivation comes from a 5.8-liter V8 with two centrifugal superchargers and sequential fuel injection, good for 1,177 horsepower (878 kilowatts). It has been linked to a motorsports-inspired seven-speed paddle-shift transmission, “one of the fastest-shifting transmissions in existence,” so performance is stellar: the sprint from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) is over in 2.8 seconds and the run up to 124 mph (200 kph) is just as impressive at 6.8 seconds. It also comes with different operation modes – Minimum with 700 hp (522 kW), IQ with “race-car for the road” driving characteristics, and Maximum.
