The hypercar model from Denmark has 2 versions Agil and Tur promising to meet the different needs of speed enthusiasts, each version will only be produced exactly 50 units.

After a long wait, the Zenvo Aurora masterpiece has finally been officially launched. The Danish manufacturer chose the 2023 Monterey Car Week event to introduce its latest masterpiece to the world.

Aurora is designed based on Zenvo’s all-new ZM1 modular chassis platform. Made of mixed materials, mostly carbon, this structure weighs only 120 kg and helps the Aurora supercar reach an overall weight of only 1,450 kg, becoming the lightest product Zenvo has ever built. The chassis has a stiffness of up to 63,000Nm/degree, complying with Formula 1 structural safety standards.

Providing operating capabilities for the Aurora is a 6.6L V12 engine block called “Mjølner”, made entirely of aluminum, placed in the middle of the car’s body, weighing only 260 kg. Powered by four turbochargers, it can reach very high revs of up to 9,800 rpm and produce 1,250 horsepower (932 kW/1,267 PS), transmitting traction to the rear wheels via 7-speed gearbox. This is the world’s most powerful V12 engine among engines used for mass-produced commercial vehicles.

And yet, this engine block will also coordinate with electric motors to increase the power of the Aurora supercar. Zenvo divides its products into two versions: Agil and Tur. In particular, the Agil version is described as a “high-performance car specializing in racing” but only has 1 electric motor located on the rear axle, while the Tur is a “road car” with 2 motors installed. Electricity at the front wheels creates an AWD drive system

It may seem a bit confusing at first, but Zenvo has absolutely a reason to do so. A representative of the Danish car company said that the Agil model has a more aggressive and sharper exterior, optimizes aerodynamic efficiency and uses only one electric motor to avoid increasing the vehicle’s mass too much. When combined with the V12 internal combustion engine, the total system capacity on the Aurora Agil version reaches 1,450 horsepower (1,081 kW / 1,470 PS) and maximum torque of 1,400 Nm. This version can accelerate 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 365 km/h.

Meanwhile, the Tur version looks more “gentle” and lacks a rear spoiler, but thanks to being equipped with 2 electric motors, the entire system is capable of producing a “huge” amount of 1,850 horsepower ( 1,380 kW/1,876 PS) and maximum torque of 1,700 Nm. Aurora Tur version can accelerate 0-100 km/h in 2.3 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 450 km/h, which is superior to the Agil version. This version’s interior is also more comfortable than the Agil when equipped with leather seats and some other luxury amenities.

The difference between the two versions also comes from how the gearbox works. According to Zenvo, the Agil version’s gearbox shows a more obvious “mechanical quality” by helping the driver feel each individual gear level, while the Tur version’s gearbox is pre-tuned for smooth gear changes. The Aurora supercar’s gearbox is also integrated with an electronic differential, while for the Tur version, the electric motors located on the front axle also act as a torque vectoring system.

The world of supercars is filled with extraordinary numbers and Zenvo’s latest model is no exception. The Danish manufacturer claims that its design and engineering team did not set a target number. Instead, they simply work with all their creativity to make the best car possible and from there, impressive numbers will follow.

Zenvo will only produce exactly 100 Aurora supercars at its headquarters in Præstø, Denmark, of which the number is divided equally into 50 Agil versions and 50 Tur versions. Production will begin in 2025 and the first completed units will be delivered to customers as early as 2026. Price has not been announced.
