Zenvo Automotive is turning a new leaf with the launch of Aurora, their lightest and most powerful hypercar yet. This Danish masterpiece is sure to create ripples in the luxury car market with its innovative design and breathtaking performance.
The Aurora is launched with two distinct derivatives – Agil and Tur. Named after the Danish words for ‘Agile’ and ‘Touring,’ both models are inspired by the famous ‘form follows function’ design language. Chief Designer Christian Brandt has brilliantly translated Danish design and ingenuity into the hypercar market for the first time.
Innovation is at the heart of the Aurora hypercar. The MAHLE Powertrain-developed 6.6-litre quad-turbocharged V12 engine, combined with a lightweight electric motor, delivers an astonishing 1,850 horsepower, making it the most powerful V12 engine ever fitted to a road car. The mid-engined hybrid V12 layout offers both two- and four-wheel-drive drivetrains and can travel over 21 miles on pure electric power alone. This technological marvel can accelerate from 0-60 mph in as little as 2.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 280 mph.
The aerodynamically aggressive Aurora Agil model is a sports car lover’s dream, featuring a stripped-out cabin and rear-wheel drive system and weighing in at just 2,866 pounds. Meanwhile, the more classically styled Aurora Tur provides increased levels of luxury with the addition of two electric motors, enhancing stability and grip levels with permanent four-wheel-drive.
Both versions are equipped with bespoke suspension systems, lightweight chassis that utilize Formula 1 technologies, and are limited to just 50 examples each. Production is set to commence in 2026. Unveiled on the eve of Monterey Car Week, the Zenvo Aurora marks a milestone moment for the brand, embodying lightweight, fast, and beautiful nature, much like the rare light phenomenon, Aurora Borealis. Built on the all-new ZM1 modular monocoque design from Zenvo, the car is a perfect blend of speed, luxury, and aesthetics.
Both models, Agil and Tur, are designed to give owners a choice in driving style and design preferences. The clean lines and aerodynamically led chassis manage airflow efficiently, with the Tur variant set up for stable and comfortable road driving, while the Agil body offers high levels of downforce focusing on track driving.
Zenvo has aimed to create a true driver’s car with the Aurora, not just focused on numbers or outright performance but delivering an uncompromised ideal. The project has been described as an equilibrium of extremes, a beautiful reflection of Danish design; simplistic, sculptural, efficient, and functional.
The outcome has yielded two models that complement each other, deliver true driving pleasure, and offer incredible performance. The Aurora is a testament to Zenvo’s commitment to pushing boundaries in the automotive industry, offering an experience that is unparalleled and emblematic of what a luxury hypercar should be. With its limited availability and striking features, the Aurora is set to be a treasured piece in any car enthusiast’s collection.
