1,177 hp Zenvo TSR-S deploys crazy Centripetal Wing on the track



Supercars and aerodynamics go together like summer and June. Lamborghini, for example, came up with what they call ALA for the Huracán Performante. But what Zenvo did is something else.

When the Danish supercar-maker presented the Zenvo TSR-S earlier this year in Geneva, a flurry of extreme performances and specs were released, including info about what Zenvo calls a Centripetal Wing.

Back in March, the active rear wing setup was still waiting for patent approval but we can now see it at work where it matters most – on a circuit.


According to Zenvo, the rear wing has two rotational axes that allows it to work as both an air brake and cornering stabilizer. In other words, the wing not only lifts to boost downforce, but also lifts its left side when cornering left or lifts the right side when cornering right.

Zenvo’s TSR-S relies on a 5.8-liter twin-supercharged V8 built in-house and tuned to deliver 1,177 hp at 8,500 rpm and 1,100 Nm of torque (811 lb-ft) aimed solely at the rear wheels. So yeah, the driver needs all the grip and stability in the world to contain that amount of grunt.

Here’s how the clever wing works, courtesy of Carspotter Jeroen’s video on YouTube:
