Zenvo Aurora Specifications & Features
Since 2009, Zenvo, a Danish company, has been crafting striking mid-engined supercars equipped with formidable V-8 engines in incredibly limited quantities. Among them, the TSR-S stands out with its extravagant rear wing that dynamically adjusts vertically and horizontally. The latest masterpiece from Zenvo, unveiled during Monterey Car Week, takes the form of the 2024 Zenvo Aurora, a V-12 hybrid hypercar. This creation, named after the captivating aurora borealis natural phenomenon, holds the distinction of being Zenvo’s lightest and most potent road vehicle. The heart of the Aurora is a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, boasting an asserted dry weight of less than 3197 pounds. This introduction marks a significant milestone in Zenvo’s journey of crafting automotive marvels.
Introducing the latest ‘car’ in two variations: meet the Zenvo Aurora Tur and Zenvo Aurora Agil. Each caters to distinct ambitions – the former tailored for extensive road journeys, the latter optimized for track dominance. However, both models share a cutting-edge V12 engine. The aesthetic is undeniably striking as well. Zenvo’s design chief, Christian Brandt, draws inspiration from the company’s history while embracing its future, infusing classic Danish simplicity into a ‘skeletal’ structure. He emphasized, “We aimed to spotlight the chassis, engine, and suspension components as extensively as possible.”
Zenvo Aurora Engine, Power, Performance & Acceleration
Positioned in the rear compartment, a 6.6-liter V-12 with four turbochargers generates an impressive 1250 horsepower at a remarkable 9800 rpm. Engineered by Mahle Powertrain, this V-12 employs a “hot-V” arrangement, strategically placing the turbochargers between the cylinder banks. The Agil variant adopts a rear-wheel-drive configuration and integrates a single 200-hp electric motor, elevating the overall power to 1450 hp. On the other hand, the Tur model embraces all-wheel drive, featuring two additional 200-hp electric motors situated at each front wheel. This robust 1850-hp system is also available for the Agil version, delivering a collective torque of 1254 pound-feet, in contrast to the 1033 pound-feet of the rear-wheel-drive setup.
Transitioning power through a seven-speed gearbox controlled by paddle shifters behind the steering wheel, the rear-mounted electric motor drives both models. While the Tur boasts a more luxurious interior and a slightly less track-oriented focus, the Agil showcases a plethora of aerodynamic elements, giving each model a distinctive appearance. Zenvo’s claims are impressive: the Agil, weighing 2866 pounds, can surge to 62 mph in around 2.5 seconds and hit 186 mph in a mere 10 seconds, ultimately reaching a top speed of 227 mph. In contrast, the Tur, with its sleeker profile, shaves off a second, accelerating to 186 mph in 2.3 seconds and targeting an astonishing top speed of 280 mph.

Introducing the ZM1 modular system, a groundbreaking debut that seamlessly merges the main central monocoque and both front and rear subframes into a singular composite unit. This innovation not only enhances torsional rigidity to an impressive 63,000Nm/deg but also achieves a weight under 265 lb. Exceptional structural safety and composite crash structures, reminiscent of Formula 1 standards, bring superior energy absorption and crash protection. This foundation sets the stage for Managing Composites’ engineering team, presenting them with a fresh and distinct challenge to tackle.
Zenovo Aurora Pricing
Limited to a mere 50 units per Aurora variant, Zenvo plans to commence production in 2025, with initial deliveries scheduled for 2026. While exact pricing remains undisclosed, considering the 2019 TSR-S commanded a substantial $1.6 million, it’s evident the Aurora won’t come at a low cost.
