Paying homage to the legendary SR-71 aircraft by Lockheed, celebrated for its record-breaking Mach 3 speeds (3,704 km/h), the 21C Blackbird Edition encapsulates the essence of this aviation marvel. The design thoughtfully weaves various elements that honor the iconic aircraft. Covered in a sleek Jet Black paint, the supercar’s exterior mirrors the stealthy aura of the SR-71. The wheels display the SR-71’s top-down silhouette as spokes, while the exhaust system evokes the aesthetic of afterburners, embracing the aircraft’s distinct character. Adding a touch of allure, the 1+1 cockpit features subtle accents in “Afterburner Orange.”

Underneath its carbon fiber bodywork rests a formidable powertrain. Housing a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine coupled with dual electric motors, the 21C Blackbird Edition delivers impressive performance figures. In its standard configuration, this powertrain churns out a commendable 1,233 horsepower. However, the Blackbird Edition has been fine-tuned to unleash a breathtaking 1,350 horsepower.

Czinger’s production numbers for the 21C Blackbird Edition are limited to a mere 80 units. This number encompasses all iterations of the 21C series, including the acclaimed V Max variant, previously introduced to applause at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The V Max variant boasts an astonishing 0-250-0 mph (0-402-0 km/h) acceleration time of a 27 seconds. If substantiated, this accomplishment would firmly establish it as the fastest production car globally, surpassing even the current record-holder, the Koenigsegg Regera, by over a second.
