Every year, there are always a handful of cars that debut at the Geneva Motor Show that somehow end up as wallpaper in people’s smartphones. I should know because last year, the Lamborghini Centenario occupied prime real estate space in mine. This year, a number of front-runners have emerged, and one of them is the Zenvo TS-1 GT, a commemorative, limited edition model that was developed to celebrate the Danish automaker’s 10th anniversary. And dear Lord, it looks downright amazing to the point that I’m torn on what I like best about the car.
I could point to the way it looks, even if not much of it has changed in recent years. I just think that the ST1 remains one of the most underrated supercars in terms of design and I’m willing to wager that I’m not the only one who has this sentiment. But the TS1 GT is something else entirely different. Maybe it’s the exclusive Fjord Blue paint finish that has made my knees weak.

And if I’m being honest, there’s something oddly appealing about the instrument surrounds in the interior being made from copper and rhodium. Zenvo says that the interior of the car takes roughly 8,000 man hours to finish. That’s literally 333 days, which is an absurdly long time until you see what the finished product looks like.
