Czinger Plans High-Powered SUV Launch, Sidelines Hyper GT Saloon

Czinger, an American luxury start-up, shifts focus from its Hyper GT saloon to launch a super-SUV, drawing inspiration from the likes of Lamborghini Urus.


  • Czinger pivots from previously announced Hyper GT to a high-performance super-SUV.

  • The new SUV will likely feature Czinger’s 1233bhp twin-turbocharged 2.88-litre hybridised V8 engine.

  • Only 1,000 units of the super-SUV will be produced, with prices ranging between $750,000 and $1 million.


American luxury start-up Czinger is steering its focus towards the creation of a super-SUV, inspired by models such as the Lamborghini Urus. This change of direction is a departure from their previously unveiled Hyper GT saloon, which was showcased as a two-door, four-seat concept last year. The Hyper GT was initially introduced as “the most powerful grand tourer ever produced” with its potent 1233bhp twin-turbocharged 2.88-litre hybridised V8 engine.

However, in a recent conversation with Autocar, the company’s founder, Kevin Czinger, expressed a possible change in direction. He hinted at the development of “off-road-on-road” vehicles, suggesting the brand’s second model might be an SUV instead of the Hyper GT.

As for the SUV’s specifications, it’s expected to house the same 1233bhp powertrain found in the 21C and Hyper GT concept. In the 21C, this engine achieves speeds from 0-62mph in a mere 1.9 seconds. Although, due to the SUV’s larger size and weight, such performance metrics might vary.

Design elements are anticipated to resonate with Czinger’s established aesthetic, emphasizing aerodynamics and sleekness. Features might include a wide nose with LED accents and design touches from the 21C and Hyper GT concept. The brand’s founder previously stated that the SUV would adopt the design language of the 21C, ensuring recognizable brand continuity.

Inside, the SUV’s design remains a mystery, as little has been disclosed about the interiors of the Hyper GT. Still, it’s expected to offer generous space for four adults and be equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
