The 1250hp, V8, 1:1 Czinger 21C Hypercar will Debut in Geneva

Czinger Vehicles has revealed the full specifications of its groundbreaking 21C hypercar, of which just 80 will be built. The reveal includes an in-depth look and explanation of Czinger’s in-house developed drivetrain and proprietary production and manufacturing technologies. The Czinger 21C is designed, built and manufactured in Los Angeles for the 21st century.

The Czinger 21C will debut next month at the Geneva International Motor Show 2020. Both a road and a track-orientated variant will be displayed at the booth (Hall 1, Booth 1030).  Founder and CEO Kevin Czinger will introduce the Czinger brand and the 21C to the public on 3 March, 11:00 – 11:15 CET.

As a performance vehicle designer and manufacturer, Czinger seeks to achieve iconic design, revolutionary technology and dominating performance.

Revolutionary technology:

The 21C is manufactured using cutting-edge technology tools that are integrated into a patented production system. The Divergent-Czinger team has created this production system, including automated design and optimisation software, patented additive manufacturing driven processes, high accuracy automated assembly, and novel performance materials.  The 21C is the first vehicle born from this revolutionary system.

This revolutionary technology enables Czinger’s design and engineering team to express 21st century art in performance and design. A 21st century look at coachbuilding, each 21C is assembled by a team of artisans, from the fit and finish of each and every part – from seat brackets to suspension components – to the hand-crafted carbon fibre and multi-layer, show quality paintwork.

Dominating performance:

Vehicle performance results from a design in which all parts have a precise purpose, are built to achieve that purpose and combine to work in harmony. The 21C embodies that approach to total vehicle design.

The 21C is designed and manufactured from the ground up by the Czinger team in Los Angeles, California. Lightweight, proprietary high-performance alloy and carbon fibre multi-material structures form the 21C chassis. Computationally engineered, printed and assembled, the chassis is home to an in-house designed strong hybrid powertrain that drives all four wheels. Achieving a true 1:1 power to weight ratio, a 2.88-litre, flat crank V8 with twin turbos located mid-vehicle, and an electric motor assigned to each front wheel drive the 21C to a 8.1 second quarter mile, 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in 1.9 seconds, 0 to 186 mph (300 kph) to 0 in 15 seconds and 0 to 248 mph (400 kph) to 0 in 29 seconds. At 329hp (324bhp) per litre, Czinger’s priorities are clear – maximize power to weight and power efficiency.

Two continuous front traction motors and one combined crank-driven generator and starter (to ensure the power from the lithium-titanate batteries is readily available when needed) completes the strong hybrid set-up, which has 1250 hp (1233 bhp).

This is paired with a seven-speed sequential transaxle gearbox with a hydraulic actuated multi-plate clutch to complete the entire drivetrain, which is designed, developed and built by Czinger.

Iconic design:

The Czinger design team upholds the company ethos of next generation thinking. The 21C provides the ideal seating position to achieve optimal performance driving and weight distribution.

The 21C’s iconic design originates from the concept of functional art. Performance driven “Iine logic” gives rise to the car’s dramatic shape. Every opening (cut) line on the car connects two graphic or functional features, and strong, athletic surfaces flow and wrap around the car’s performance core. Rooted in aerodynamic efficiency, the 21C’s in-line seating creates a narrow cabin that pierces the air. The shrink-wrapped body hugs the chassis, tightly sculpting the front and rear overhang around the wheels.

Never has a production car combined all of these design elements. Czinger’s revolutionary technology enables this design breakthrough. The result is a car that looks like nothing else on the planet.
