Czinger has unveiled its groundbreaking 21C, alongside an additional lightweight track variant.
The carmaker says that the 21C is the first in a series of planned vehicles. The yet-to-be-revealed lineup will feature technologies and unique design elements that explore the limits of creativity and performance.
Czinger named the car 21C because it is designed, built and manufactured for the 21st century. Production is limited to 80 vehicles and each 21C will be hand fit and finished in Los Angeles, California.
In-house technology has been used to optimise every component in the Czinger 21C.
For example, the front upper control arm is hollow and has a three-dimensional internal structure. It also uses proprietary, specifically designed alloys.
Described as the world’s most power dense engine and located mid-vehicle, the Czinger 21C is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.88-litre, flat-plane crank, V8.
The engine is mated to three advanced axial flux electric motors producing up to 370Nm and 198bhp of peak torque and power. Combined, the Czinger 21C’s total powertrain achieves a total output of 1233 bhp.
A 7-speed automated sequential transmission gearbox is offered in two variants, with the track-oriented variant utilising a full race dog gears for fastest possible shift times.
A more road-biased synchromesh configuration is also offered for smoother everyday shifting.
The 21C will accelerate to 100 km/h from a standstill in just 1.9 seconds.
The cabin features “jet fighter seating”, with the driver in the middle of the vehicle, and a passenger behind to create ultimate weight distribution and connection to the road.
