2018 - 2020 Zenvo TSR-S
Already nine years old as of 2018, the Zenvo ST1 has already made a name for itself as a potent supercar with extreme design and performance. Designed and built in Denmark, the ST1 remained in production until 2016, when it was replaced by the TS1, which gained certain changes in terms of aerodynamics and drivetrain. The TS1 was followed by the race-spec TSR in 2017. With the latter still new, Zenvo launched a new iteration of its only vehicle to date. It’s called the TSR-S, and it’s the company’s most radical car for street use.
Positioned between the TS1 GT road car and the race-only TSR, the TSR-S shares the looks of the original ST1. However, it borrows the revised aerodynamics of the TSR, as well as a number of unique features that improve performance on both the road and the track. As usual, the Danish automaker will keep production very limited, with only five examples to be built a year. Yes, this thing is just as exclusive as a Koenigsegg, but does it have the power and speed to go against it? Let’s find out in the review below.
Update: 3/12/2020 Zenvo has showcased its latest iteration of the TSR-S road-going hypercar and it comes with a handful of new improvements. Learn all about it below!
Who would have imagined that the Zenvo ST1, a Danish supercar, would come from a place mostly known for its windmills, pastries and low crime rates? Denmark might be a fantastic country to live in but nobody would have dreamed of it producing a supercar, let alone a devil’s plaything that pumps out 1,104 horsepower.
That power number puts the new Zenvo ST1 in the same league as the Bugatti Veyron and the Koenigsegg CCXR. Amazingly, many have still not heard of this brilliant machine. The concept has been around for a decade and it finally got the green light for production in 2005. In those 10 years, not many news stories have been published around the ST1. (Somebody needs to hire a new marketing team.)
Delays aside, the Zenvo ST1 has arrived. That’s the most important thing to remember for a supercar that promised so much and has finally delivered on those promises. What it’s legacy will be in the years to come has yet to be determined, but for now, let’s just sit back and see what the ST1 does from here.

Denmark’s Zenvo ST1 is not the most popular or most well-known supercar of the lot, but make no mistake, the people over at Zenvo are hell-bent on changing that perception.
The Danish supercar maker is getting ready to roll out three special edition ST1 models for the North American market, called the ’ST1 50S’. Despite the ultra limited number of this model, Zenvo has made sure that they’re worth every penny prospective customers will have to shell out for the chance to own one of these three hypercars.
Aesthetic changes done to the car are limited, but they still stand out from the rest of the supercars running roughshod over America’s highways these days. The ST1 50S comes in three different colors - Intense Red, Crystal White, and Mediterranean Blue - with a powertrain that has been improved from the standard ST1 model. The part about the engine is pretty huge considering that the ’base’ model already has a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 1,104 horsepower and 1,050 lb/ft of torque.
If there’s any improvement on those eye-popping numbers, then how much more powerful is the ST1 50S?
UPDATE 11/07/2011: The Zenvo ST1 50S will finally arrive in the USA this month. The bad news is that it will be limited to only three units and will cost a whopping $1.8 million. Of course, that will also include a Swiss watch that alone costs $49,000. The car will be sold via U.S. distributor Emporio Motor Group.
