Meet The Czinger 21C: A $2 Million 3D-Printed Hypercar

Reveal / Comments

Only 80 people will take one home.

With the 2020 Geneva Motor Show canceled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, it's easy to forget some of the insane supercars and hypercars that were expected to debut at the event. One such car was the Czinger 21C, a 3D-printed hypercar from a new American company. First announced early last year, the 21C has just made its official debut in production guise, ready for 80 lucky customers to take one home at $2 million a pop.

Some specs have changed since we last saw the car - it now sits at 2.05-meters wide, but it looks like the 21C will be worth the wait. It features a mid-mounted 2.88-liter flat crank V8 engine with twin-turbochargers as well as two high-output electric motors on the front axle (like an Acura NSX). Together, the V8 and electric motors combine to deliver 1,250 horsepower at an ear-shattering 11,000 rpm. Buyers can opt for a 100-hp upgrade, bringing the total to 1,350 hp.

Not only is the 21C powerful, but it's light as well. With a 1,240-kg (2,733 lbs) dry weight, the Czinger boasts a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio with all-wheel-drive. This car's performance figures are squarely in the hypercar category with a 1.9-second 0-60 mph time, 8.1-second quarter-mile time, 13.8-second 0-186 mph time, and 281-mph top speed with the optional low drag Vmax configuration. Apart from the just-released Rimac Nevera, not much will keep up with the 21C.

Speed isn't the only important element; this car is eco-conscious too. Czinger says the 21C can run on several different fuels, including carbon recycled methanol and other e-fuels, so it can be a zero-emission vehicle. In addition to the V8 engine, the 21C features an 800V electric drive and regen system, which recharges during braking.

The 21C is designed, engineered, and manufactured in Los Angeles, California, using an in-house Human-AI production system exclusive to Czinger. This revolutionary production system helps Czinger tap into new performance and styling never before seen in the hypercar space, according to the LA-based firm. Deliveries won't begin until 2023, with customers having a choice between a lightweight, high downforce configuration or a low drag configuration. Both 21C variants include Czinger's unique inline-seating layout.
