Meet the Czinger 21C.
We regularly hear about new boutique automakers promising revolutionary new hypercars and supercars. Unfortunately, not all of them materialize to much of anything. But this one appears to be different. Set to make its global debut next month at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show is the Czinger 21C, an American-built hypercar "with an iconic design and dominating performance." Los Angeles-based Czinger has just released several teaser images and a video for its 21C.
Few details have been provided at this time, but we can confirm it'll feature a hybrid powertrain and an "in-line seating configuration." Most impressively, everything about the 21C was designed, developed, engineered, and manufactured from the ground up at the company's LA headquarters.
Other innovative technologies we can expect include a cutting-edge chassis, various bespoke structures, and other high-performance components. Czinger promises the 21C will be a "paradigm shift" in the way hypercars are created. They've got our full attention. The teaser video showcases the hypercar against the backdrop of California's Bixby Bridge and Pacific Coast Highway. No information was provided in regards to pricing or production numbers.
But like with any hypercar, if you have to ask about the price, it's not something you can afford.
For now, this is basically all we know, though a closer examination of the photos clearly shows an advanced and slick-looking hypercar. Often times, hypercars built by relatively small manufacturers don't build their engines in-house. Pagani is a prime example. The Pagani Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-AMG-sourced twin-turbo V12. Other boutique brands have even used GM's crate V8s due to their dependability, boatloads of available horsepower and modification possibilities. Meanwhile, Koenigsegg also does everything in-house and has become famous for its advanced and innovative engines.
The jury is still out regarding what Czinger is capable of. Full details will come in just a few short weeks.
