THE CZINGER 21C, Aerodynamically designed to go from 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds
With a $2 million price-tag, four-figure horsepower and shattering performance record that enables it to rev up to 253 MPH, the Czinger hypercar is going somewhere cars have never gone before. Designed in collaboration with an exacting partnership between AI technology and its human counterparts, the new Czinger 21C is revolutionizing the car of the future in ways that will not only turn heads, but will turn the auto manufacturing industry on its head.
Czinger Vehicles is an industry-disrupting performance vehicles brand pioneering a new era in the automotive space by fundamentally changing the way cars will be designed and manufactured for generations to come. Built around a core ethos of utilizing revolutionary, proprietary technology to create vehicles equipped with both dominating performance and iconic design, Czinger’s first production car, the 21C, represents a radical transformation of the manufacturing sector and the future of human-AI design and sustainable systems.
Established in 2019, Czinger is named after Founder and CEO Kevin Czinger, who recognized that the current methods of manufacturing cars were not only extremely outdated, but also harmful to the environment. He knew there had to be better way, but the technologies didn’t yet exist – they had to be created. Together with his team of forward-thinking Los Angeles-based designers and engineers at parent company, Divergent3D, Czinger developed and patented a production system combining automated design and optimization software, state of the art additive manufacturing driven processes (3D printing technology), automated assembly and innovative in-house performance materials. The 21C is the first vehicle born from this revolutionary system.
While with typical manufacturing methods, design is confined to what is cost effective and feasible to produce, Czinger’s proprietary additive manufacturing methods allow the brand to break these constraints and create designs limited only by the imagination. As a result, Czinger’s complex structures appear organic, more akin to the musculoskeletal system of the human body than the sharp edges of the typical assembly line automobile. Each component of the 21C is designed for its ultimate purpose from materials made specifically for that purpose. Parts achieve significant mass savings while exceeding all performance requirements and can be re-atomized and reprinted laying the foundation for circular material flow. It’s a sustainable production system that is in harmony with nature and built to endure over time.
In short, the 21C hypercar is currently the only vehicle on the planet being designed and built using Czinger’s progressive technological advancements. Each component manufactured is computationally engineered using AI, optimized for weight and performance and finished by hand. Inspired by the power of the SR-71 Blackbird and gleaning its incredibly aerodynamic shape from this fighter jet, the 21C seats two, with the passenger behind the driver. The lightweight carbon fiber, aluminum and titanium body weighs just 1,250 kg, allowing the vehicle to go 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds. The 21C’s engine is an in-house designed, twin turbo V8 within a strong hybrid configuration. As a result, in October 2021, it bested the previous production track record set by a McLaren P1 at Americas F1 track, COTA, by more than six-seconds, further demonstrating the brand’s commitment to performance.
First deliveries of the 21C are set for 2023 and production is limited to 80 cars. The model represents just the first in a diverse series of exclusive performance vehicles coming from the informed imagination of the Czinger team and created using its groundbreaking methods. Following in the footsteps of the great American automakers who came before them, Czinger’s objective is to create one of the great, enduring brands of this century and to continuously deliver pathbreaking performance vehicles that express the cutting edge of the human mind. ☐
