Full Tilt

Every supercar needs a party-piece. Wild doors, mad styling, the most power, the highest top speed, crystals in the headlights, the most power again

It’s got to be tough for supercar manufacturers to come up with a new headline every few years, but Zenvo recently found an untapped niche; weird moving rear wings.

Not air-brakes or adjustable downforce – no, we’ve seen those loads of times – but a rear wing fitted to the track-focussed TSR-S that can tilt with two degrees of freedom. Because, er… reasons.

It’s a unique addition to the spec sheet not matched by any other supercar makers, which is probably reason enough, and both it and the car it’s attached to have been recreated superbly by Pingubricks.

Nearly 1,500 pieces, 3D-printed wheels, opening doors, a removable engine cover, and – of course – a rear wing that can tilt via ‘cables’ make for a stunning brick-built supercar, and you can head full tilt to Eurobricks to find out more via the link above.

Lego Zenvo TS1

It seems like almost every week that a new supercar with a million horsepower and a VMAX of the Speed of Light is revealed in some sketchy form. Most of these (thankfully) come to nothing, but occasionally one such car does actually make it to production. This is that car.

Hand-built by some clever Danes, the Zenvo ST1, and then the later TS1 pictured here, fits every criteria for the ‘not gonna happen’ supercar going. 1,100bhp? Check. Carbon-Fibre bodywork? Check. 230mph+ top speed? Check. Only the Zenvo did get built, and continues to do so in upgraded TS1 form.

Only 15 ST1s and a similar number of TS1s are expected to be completed, and a few of those have met untimely firefly deaths, but nevertheless Zenvo have managed to build – almost completely in-house – one of the gnarliest and fastest road cars in existence. Except for when they catch fire.

This stunning Model Team recreation of the Zenvo TS1 comes from previous bloggee Alexander Pascholaletto and it captures the aggressive design of the real car brilliantly. It’s also a lot less likely to spontaneously combust. Head over to Flickr via the link above for all the shots.
