Shock and Awe: a $1.7M demonstration of How to Dematerialise and Decapitalise Car Design

Everything about the Czinger 21C is extraordinary. It’s an American hypercar, limited to 80 units, which was created using AI and 3D print technology and, as a result, it has the entire automotive industry paying close attention. It’s neither left-hand-drive nor right-hand-drive but rather goes for a central 1+1 layout. Power comes via an in-house developed 2.9-litre twin-turbo V8 with a stratospheric redline of 11,000 rpm, in conjunction with two electric motors powering the front wheels. It’ll run on a range of fuels, including carbon recycled methanol and other e-fuels, meaning it can be a zero-emission vehicle. Then there’s its weight, which at 1,250kg is the equivalent of a Nissan Micra. Add all that together and you’ll find the 21C boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1, it’ll hit 100km/h in 1.9 seconds, cover the quarter-mile in 8.1 seconds, hit 300 km/h in 15 seconds, and reach 400 km/h in 29 seconds. Just for proof, it has already smashed the Laguna Seca lap record, and the Circuit of the Americas one too. No wonder Kevin Czinger and his son Lukas are calling the 21C the most innovative supercar since Gordon Murray’s McLaren F1 of the mid-1990s!
