Zenvo gives wings to the rear wing

Zenvo gives wings to the rear wing

The Zenvo TSR-S, the civilised (road-legal) track-special monster from the Swedish car maker, had made its debut at Geneva earlier this year. It has a very striking design, an aggressive front and a huge rear wing. But it is the rear wing that has caught everyone’s attention.

Now, in the sportscars and hypercars that we have seen till date, the rear wing pops out and changes its angle to maximize the downforce like you might have seen in the Porsche 911 or the Bugatti Veyron.

But the Zenvo, takes it to the next level. The rear wing of the TSR-S rotates around the longitudinal axis of the car (in simple words – from side to side) to create variable downforce on the two sides of the car and also a centrifugal force which will help the car turn faster.


For example, if the car needs to turn right, the wing will swivel itself towards the left (i.e. the right end of the wing will go upwards and the left will go down) acting like a rudder to assist turn-ins and also carry more speed into the corners. Also, the variable downforce offers more grip to the inner wheels in turn generating more traction and hence resulting in higher corner speeds.

Surprisingly, we haven’t seen anything like this even in concept or racecars as yet and Zenvo has got it into production already. Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti, are you listening?
