Zenvo has flipped the script on their marquee hypercar!
ST1 becomes TS1 for 2017. Aero treats up front include a huge new splitter with side and sill spats shown in contrast-carbon. Out back, a bigger duck-flip of a spoiler promises better aero and more stares.
If that were possible! The TS1’s 5.9-liter, twin-supercharged V8 rumbles like a monster truck.
We wish the lighting package were updated in the nose with something more fresh. But as always, a very dramatic hypercar statement.
