Zenvo is Bringing a 250-mph, 10th-Anniversary TS1 Supercar to Geneva

Its monstrous power was complemented by a wild design, and it has been hand-built by a select team of Danish craftsmen.Last year, Zenvo returned to the Geneva Motor Show with an all-new model, the TS1 GT. Though the TS1 looked similar to its predecessor, it had been thoroughly revamped for more downforce and an upgraded interior. Oh, and Zenvo replaced the 6.8-liter V8 with a 5.9-liter unit and traded a turbocharger for another supercharger. The 233-mph TS1 GT was priced at $1.8 million and limited to just 15 production units.Geneva’s exotic festival is just around the corner once again and Zenvo is already generating buzz. The supercar maker announced it will bring a 10th-anniversary edition of its TS1 with performance tweaks and a “GT” also affixed to the end of its name.“The TS1 GT begins a whole new era for Zenvo,” said Nigel Gordon-Stewart, Zanvo’s commercial director. “It’s a Phoenix car for us, literally. We’ve built a new factory on the Danish island of Zealand, our prototypes have been in Lapland testing a revolutionary new traction control system, and we’ll soon announce details of a new dealer network in Europe, the U.K. and the U.S., designed to meet the needs of customers who are already waiting for our cars.”Performance specifics are light, but Zenvo says the TS1 GT will make more than 1,150hp, will hit 250mph, and will be priced around 1,000,000 pounds, or around $1,250,000. Like the TS1, the GT will be built with a carbon fiber body, mid-engine layout, and rear-wheel-drive layout.Gordon-Stewart also mentioned that Zenvo is working on a gas-electric hybrid supercar, but when we’ll see the alternative energy model is a mystery.

Emma Gowing The sentence today means our world is a safer place

first_img“CATHERINE WAS BRUTALLY murdered. That is a fact,” Emma Gowing told waiting media outside Mold Crown Court in Wales earlier following the life sentence of Clive Sharp for murdering her sister in October.The Irish vet from Offaly was brutally raped, killed, dismembered and disposed of  by the 47-year-old. Her body has never been fully recovered.Emma said the life sentence handed down to Sharp “means that today our world is a slightly safer place. No other woman will be harmed by the man who murdered my sister. That is a good thing.”“Catherine conducted her life with love, compassion and integrity,” Emma continued. “Catherine was an exceptional woman, a wonderful daughter sister and friend.”“She was a beautiful light, she shone very brightly… Her light is gone from our mortal world. She now shines elsewhere.”According to Sky News, Mr Justice Griffith Williams told Sharp when passing sentence: “This is a horrific, cold hearted murder, carried out to gratify your perverted sexual desires.”BBC News reports that Justice Griffith-Williams added that he was “a very serious danger to women” and had previously been jailed twice for rape and sexual assaults.He must serve a minimum of 37 years in jail.Read: UPDATE: Man sentenced to life for the murder of Catherine Gowing >last_img read more
