Zenvo has taken the wraps of its latest hypercar creation from Denmark, the Aurora. Delivering unbelievable numbers––although that's something to be expected in the hypercar realm––the Aurora is powered by a hybrid V12 that can generate a bonkers 1,850 hp at most. While developing the Aurora, Zenvo says that designers refrained from chasing numbers, and instead aimed to achieve a "true driver's car." Its incredible figures are just an added benefit.





The Aurora makes its debut in two different trim levels, the Agil and the Tur. The Agil has more of a track monster demeanor, while the Tur places more emphasis on the road, as its name is Danish for "touring." No matter which Aurora you choose, each one will be built on the company's newly-developed ZM1 modular monocoque. Zenvo says it was designed to offer the structural soundness of an F1 car, claiming 63,000Nm/deg of rigidity. The monocoque consists of carbon composite, which results in a feathery weight of 265 lbs.


The Aurora's raw looks can be attributed to the fact that 70 percent of the car's chassis is exposed on the outside, and there are even some parts of the front and rear suspension on display. This design feature echoes the fact that the Aurora is the lightest vehicle Zenvo has ever built. The Agil weighs no more thab 2,866 pounds, while the Tur comes in at a heftier 3,197 pounds with its larger powertrain.


Even the engine is relatively lightweight, with an all-aluminum build weighing 575 lbs. The Aurora gets its power from a mid-mounted, 6.6 liter V12 engine paired with four turbochargers, which can rev up to an insane 9,800 RPM. As a result, the engine alone can produce up to 1,250 hp. This powertrain is paired with a seven-speed transmission, which Zenvo says it tuned to feel as authentic and mechanical as possible.





With the hybrid system included, output gets even higher, though it varies by trim. Zenvo says the added power from the electric motor gives more oomph off the line, and helps to fill in the gaps in torque while the turbochargers spool up. Interestingly, the Agil is the less powerful one despite its focus on the track. It's equipped with a single electric motor, driving a total of 1,450 hp to the rear wheels. This allows for a swift sprint to 62 mph that takes just 2.5 seconds, with a total top speed of 227 mph. Zenvo sacrificed the extra power in order to save weight, and it argues that one electric motor lets the engine do more of the work. The Agil's mean-looking aero kit enables 1,940 lbs of downforce at 155 mph.





Meanwhile, the Tur does the exact opposite, sacrificing weight for more power. And don't let the subtle looks of the road-focused Tur deceive you, as it produces shockingly more output than the Agil. Zenvo added two electric motors to the Tur's front wheels, which improves cornering performance and raises the model's top speed to an incredible 280 mph. In all, the quad-turbo V12 combined with three electric motors produces 1,850 hp, launching the Tur to 62 mph in a blistering 2.3 seconds. Aside from the power upgrade, the Tur adds niceties like leather seating, which allows for a more comfortable ride than in the hardcore Agil.


Zenvo will cap the Aurora at 50 units for each trim, which amounts to just 100 examples in total. Production will begin in 2025 at the company's headquarters in Præstø, Denmark, and pricing is said to sit at just over $2 million. Until then, the Aurora will make its public debut later this week at California's Monterey Car Week.

The Zenvo Aurora Is Denmark's Insane, V12-Powered Hypercar Making 1,850 HP
