In 1969, Zenith unveiled its fabled El Primero chronograph. That same year, British car manufacturer Land Rover introduced the prototype of the very first luxury off-road vehicle: the iconic Range Rover, which hit the markets in 1970. Fired by the same pioneering spirit and the same ability to explore new horizons, these two original creations achieved legendary status.

In 2017, Zenith and Land Rover are continuing to celebrate the creative relationship. Featuring a ceramised aluminum case of 42 mm and beating at 36,000 vibrations per hour, the new Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition introduces an appealing brushed grey dial with copper-toned details. Whether on the wrist of an intrepid explorer or an elegant gentleman, it also exudes an inimitably chic aura, enhanced by a new black rubber strap coated with black-toned perforated calfskin. This leather is the same high quality hide used on Range Rovers and is secured by a triple folding clasp in DLC-treated titanium.

Jean-Claude Biver, Zenith CEO & President of the LVMH Watch Division said: “Zenith is the ultimate reference for chronometry (precision timekeeping), having won 2,333 chronometer prizes. The authentic Manufacture is a major player in the Swiss watch industry. Zenith stands for Art, Tradition, Culture and above all, produces real and authentic “museum quality” models at nonetheless affordable prices. It is essential that we preserve these qualities, as they all belong to the more than 150-year DNA of Zenith. We are here not just to run a company, but also to serve its brand history and DNA – just as Range Rover is doing. The main task and challenge we have in common is a determination to protect our tradition, but at the same time to find the right and harmonious way of connecting our tradition to the future, while showing extreme respect for our iconic products.”

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, added: “The Range Rover Velar brings a new dimension of modernity, elegance and a touch of glamour to the range rover family. The Chronomaster El Primero Range Rover Velar Special Edition, created with these very same principles, comes with a bloodline like no other and is refined for every occasion. It will stir the emotions.”

ZENVO Automotive  – ‘10th Anniversary TS1 GT’ Unique SuperCar 2017

Zenvo Automotive are proud to present our 10th Anniversary TS1 GT model at the 87th
Geneva International Motor Show 2017.

The car is a unique, one-off, bespoke TS1 GT which has been built specifically to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company. Zenvo has specified and built the car to reflect the heritage of the company and its founders from Denmark. This historic TS1 GT has been named ‘Sleipnir’ [pronounced: “Sleep-near”] after the eight-legged horse ridden by Odin, the King of the Norse gods in ancient Scandinavian mythology. Sleipnir was ‘the fastest and best horse among gods and men.’

The recognition of the heritage of Scandinavia and its historical significance does not stop there. This very special TS1 GT has been painted in ‘Fjord Blue’ and highlighted by copper-bronze strips on the hood and roof of the car which are set into the bare carbon-fibre panels as well as contrasting copper highlights both inside and outside of the car.

The use of copper-bronze recognizes the technological advancements by ancient Danes in exploration, trading and commerce extending from North America to Russia and the Middle East. In the pre-history of Scandinavia, Bronze was the most advanced material available. It was used in multiple applications including the design and building of chariots. Bronze was the carbon-fibre of its age and provided a technical advancement which allowed the unparalleled growth of the Vikings and the Scandinavian region. The application of advanced technology within the region continues with the production of some of the most technically advanced hypercars in the world. Using extensive lightweight carbon-fibre and other hybrid composite materials as well as a unique proprietary drivetrain with ultra-fast advanced gear-shift, traction control and ESC technology, the quality of Zenvo engineering and the precision quality of production are the worthy successors of our innovative ancestors.

“Presenting this car at Geneva and celebrating our tenth anniversary makes me very proud and humble”, said Troels Vollertsen, Technical Director and Founder of Zenvo Automotive A/S. “We have achieved so much with a small team of highly dedicated and capable individuals. All of us recognize our heritage as pioneers of technology and remain totally committed to continue to produce and develop Zenvo cars which provide our owners and drivers with a sensational experience of performance, quality and perfect driving pleasure which is the DNA of our brand and our cars. We look forward with great excitement to the next ten years.”

ABOUT ZENVO AUTOMOTIVE A/S

The Company was formed in 2007 as a channel for the aspirations and ambitions of a small group of highly talented Danish engineers and designers with extensive experience gained from working with Italian and German automotive companies. Led by powertrain specialist, Troels Vollertsen, with the design and styling vision of ex-RCA graduate Christian Brandt, the team wanted to realise long-held passionate ambitions to build a car which combined the traditional skills of Danish styling design with German-derived high performance technology.

Functionalistic and immediately aesthetically iconic, the Zenvo ST1 was developed over six years to demonstrate the use of ultra-lightweight composite materials in the design realisation of a car capable of performing alongside contemporary iconic supercars. A uniquely designed and engineered engine of 6.9 litres was produced for the ST1 incorporating both supercharger and turbocharger delivering 1120PS in a car made extensively from Carbon Fibre but featuring an aluminium and steel safety cell which, when tested, provided the ideal passenger environment for safety and comfort.

In 2016 Zenvo presented their revised hyper-GT, the TS1 GT, along with its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR. A completely new engine of 5.8L capacity with twin superchargers had been developed now producing more than 1165PS. The new engine boasts a dry sump and flat-plane crankshaft configuration allowing the engine to spin more freely, rev much higher, produce power more efficiently and be mounted lower in the body for improved handling. Uniquely developed software running the Zenvo-designed high performance gearbox provides one of the fastest-shifting powertrains in existence confirming the on-going technological progress of Zenvo Automotive.
