Zenvo Aurora Hybrid Hypercar

The forthcoming Zenvo Aurora, a successor to the renowned Danish-made TS line of hypercars, is slated to produce 1,824 horsepower with its hybrid V-12 powertrain, a detail the company confirmed on Tuesday.

Unlike earlier Zenvo hypercars that employed a V-8 engine, the Aurora will incorporate a newly developed 6.6-liter V-12 engine with quad-turbocharging, crafted in collaboration with Zenvo and automotive component manufacturer Mahle. This engine is expected to generate 1,233 horsepower at 8,000 rpm on its own, according to Zenvo. The engine is designed to hit a redline at 9,800 rpm.

Zenvo assures that the entirely aluminum engine complies with U.S. and European emissions standards. This is largely due to an innovative ignition system designed by Mahle that precludes the necessity for additional fuel usage for parts protection, a prerequisite for the latest Euro 7 emissions regulations. The engine is founded on a modular concept, and Zenvo is contemplating the creation of V-6 and V-8 versions for future models—potentially even as crate engines.

The V-12 will be partnered with a hybrid system contributing an additional 591 horsepower. While Zenvo hasn’t divulged many specifics, it’s mentioned that the hybrid system will facilitate all-wheel drive for enhanced maneuverability. Controlling over 1,000 horsepower via the rear wheels alone would indeed be a challenging feat.

The new chassis of the Aurora will accommodate the hybrid powertrain. In contrast to previous Zenvo models, the Aurora’s chassis is constructed entirely of carbon fiber, including the subframes. The now-discontinued TS line, whose final model was the TSR-GT, utilized a chassis composed of a combination of steel and aluminum.

Zenvo plans to limit the production of the Aurora to a mere 100 units, which will be split between the track-centric Agil models and the high-speed grand touring Tur models—the latter promising a top speed in excess of 248 mph. Zenvo has scheduled the official unveiling of the Aurora for August 18. However, as of March, 30% of the production slots had already been claimed.

Love the hybrid tech, but wonder about the real-world fuel economy with all that power. Still, it’s a dream machine, no doubt.
