Czinger Reveals Production-Spec 1,250 hp 21C Hypercar

This 21C really Czings

  • Better than 1 hp per kg

  • Car designed and built using 3D printing processes


It’s the pure electric hypercars that are getting all of the attention of late, but there are still automakers out there doing extraordinary things with internal combustion. Like this, the production-spec version of the Czinger 21C with a 2.9L flat-crank V8 designed in-house.

The Czinger 21C was first put on display in March of last year and was all ready to debut at the Geneva motor show before it was cancelled. It got some updates as the model got closer to production-ready, and now the final spec is ready.

What are the figures? Try a 2.88L flat crank V8 with twin-turbos that pairs with two electric motors (one on each front wheel) to generate a total of 1,250 hp. The engine will redline at 11,000 rpm, and an upgrade is available to push the engine to 1,350 hp. Either way, the 1,240 kg car delivers better than one horse per kilo, an impressive feat.

The motors are powered using an 800V system and the engine is designed to run on zero-emission fuels like carbon recycled methanol as well as traditional gasoline. It has a top speed of 281 mph and can reach 100 km/h from a stop in 1.9 seconds. At 200 mph, it delivers 2,500 kg of downforce.

The car is designed and built in LA, but the 80 car run planned will be highly customisable. In addition to finish and trim options, both high and low downforce will be offered. The design uses 3D printing and extensive optimisation to ensure that each part is as light as possible and as strong as necessary. Even the front upper control arm is hollow with a complicated internal structure to help boost performance.

No word yet on when exactly deliveries of the car will begin.
