The Zenvo Aurora is the Danish brand’s next V12-powered hybrid hypercar that it’s currently teasing. The reveal is in August. Automaker only plans to build 100, and 30% of planned production already has reservations
The Aurora will use a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12. Buyers will be able to select a Tur variant which will be a road-focused grand tourer with a top speed of over 249 miles per hour (400 kilometers per hour). The Agil version will have a more aggressive body and track-focused tuning.
According to a previous report, the the engine would have two electric turbochargers. Engine output would be 1,200 horsepower and the hybrid system’s electric motor would increase the total figure to 1,800 horsepower.
Zenvo will build its own gearbox with an integrated hybrid unit for the Aurora. The chassis will be made up of carbon fiber components for the monocoque and subframes.
“This car is born from the passion that runs deep in the Zenvo family and aligns perfectly with our ‘smiles per mile’ philosophy. 2023 is going to be a really exciting year,” said Jens Sverdrup, Chief Commercial Officer and Chairman of the Zenvo’s Board of Directors.
The company says there are “high-level business partnerships” in the project. Zenvo will reveal more details about this closer to the launch of the model. The automaker will homologate the Aurora in order to be able to sell the vehicle worldwide.
The Zenvo TSR-GT (pictured above) was the brand’s latest new vehicle launch. It was a hotter version of the old TSR-S. This one focused on reducing drag to achieve a higher top speed. Tweaks included a longer rear wing and aero discs on the wheels. The twin-supercharged 5.8-liter V8 develops 1,360 horsepower, which allows for an electronically limited top speed of 263 mph. Zenvo planned to manufacture just three of these models, with deliveries beginning in the third quarter of 2023.
