Designed, developed, and manufactured in Los Angeles, California. The Czinger 21C is a car designed for the 21st century by 21st-century artisans. The car was previewed on 12 February before its global debut at the Geneva International Motor Show that will take place in March 2020.

In line with Czinger’s Californian roots, the manufacturer unveiled details about the car in a stunning teaser video, lifting the lid on the car’s in-line seating configuration as well as the sound profile for its innovative powertrain. The preview showcased a truly unique masterpiece that is pictured against the backdrop of California’s Bixby Bridge and the Pacific Coast Highway.

The Czinger 21C is the first of its kind to come up with novel adaptive manufacturing technologies for the creation of a truly innovative hypercar. This innovative technology was used in the design of the high-performance components, cutting –edge chassis and various bespoke structures.

Engine Performance

The 21C features an in-house developed 2.88-liter V8 with twin turbos located mid-vehicle. This powerful engine delivers a whopping 1250HP that enables the car to go from zero to 62mph in just 1.9 seconds and from 0 to 186mph in 15 seconds. An “ultra-light” seven-speed automated manual gearbox transmission system is also present.

The vehicle is built around the driver and comprises a two-person in-line seating configuration. The powertrain, combined with the car’s innovative chassis, gives the car a major boost in performance.

Details of the engine performance were revealed in a second teaser film released on February 17. The film showcases some of the iconic design lines as well as the hypercar’s performance. Further details were revealed in another video released on February 21st that provided more information on the car’s specifications.

Only 80 units of the 21C will be manufactured with buyers having to choose between a road or track oriented version of the car.
