Video: a closer look at the Zenvo Aurora, a quad-turbo V12 monster
Zenvo's clean-sheet, 1,850bhp HyperThing debuted in California. Here's the lowdown
Yes, papa’s got a brand new bag… actually two, because both versions of this new 1,850bhp Zenvo Aurora are wild V12 hybrids. Welcome the new Aurora Tur, and Aurora Agil. While they service different ambitions – the former built for long distance road trips, the latter for attacking the track – both are armed with a brand new 6.6-litre quad-turbo V12.
Developed by Mahle Powertrain and able to punch out a cool 1,250bhp on its own while revving to 9,800rpm, both versions also get a seven-speed gearbox with an electric motor nestled inside, adding a further 200bhp. In the track-focused Agil that means a rear-drive hypercar with 1,450bhp, but in the Aurora Tur, there’s an additional pair of electric motors (one on each front wheel) for four-wheel-drive and the full nutjob 1,850bhp and 280mph.
