The New Czinger 21C Hypercar Boasts 1:1 Power-To-Weight Ratio. It Weighs 1,233kg

The Czinger 21C hybrid hypercar might look like all the others but it’s not like all the others.

  • Czinger is a California-based start-up company that is doing things a little differently.
  • The Czinger 21C is a hybrid hypercar with a total system output of 1,233-horsepower.
  • Only 80 will be built with a price tag between $2.5 and 3.5 million.

While the Czinger 21C’s styling may not seem wildly different from other supercars from the likes of Koenigsegg or Pagani, it differs in the way it was developed and built. This hybrid hypercar from California-based startup Czinger is as unique as it fast thanks to its 1,233-horsepower and AWD configuration.

Let’s get into it now. The Czinger 21C features a twin-turbocharged 2.88-litre V8, an unusual displacement for a V8. Not only was this mill developed in-house, but it revs to 11,000 rpm, can run on bio-methanol and generates no less than 950-horsepower on its own. Mounted in the rear and mated to 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the ICE is aided in forward motion by a pair of 150-horsepower electric motors up front, for a grand total of 1,233-horsepower.

Among the many innovations in this car we find a number of parts that were 3D printed such as some suspension components. The result of filing more than 350 patents is a car that tips the scale at only 1,233kg. This kind of power-to-weight ratio means that the Czinger 21C takes off to 100km/h in only 1.9 seconds, reach 300km/h in 15 seconds on the way to a top speed of more than 430km/h. These specs belong to the road-going 21C. The track-focused version provides more than three times the downforce at 250km/h at 790kg, which drops its top speed to 380km/h.

Finally, and unlike most other niche limited-run supercar makers, Czinger has invested its own money from the onset. In other words, it’s not taken deposits in order to develop the cars. Also, it features a 1+1 seating configuration!
