CZINGER 21C: REVOLUTIONIZING HYPERCAR PERFORMANCE

The Czinger 21C is a hypercar that combines a twin-turbocharged 2.88-litre V8 engine with two electric motors that produce a total of 1,233bhp. The vehicle has a 0-62mph time of just 1.9 seconds, achieving an elusive 1:1 power-to-weight ratio thanks to its ultra-lightweight aluminum and carbon-fiber chassis, 3D-printed components, and AI-designed parts. The hypercar has broken lap records at the legendary Laguna Seca Raceway and the Circuit of The Americas.

Czinger has wider ambitions for the technology used to create the hypercar. The father-and-son team responsible for creating the car has established a car brand, with the 21C demonstrating the capabilities of the manufacturing system developed by the duo and their other firm, Divergent. The Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS), which combines AI-driven design software, 3D printing, and robotic assembly, allows rapid iteration and production of bespoke vehicles.

The Czinger 21C has gone through significant changes since its debut, thanks to the DAPS technology. The hypercar was widened from 1,850mm to 2,050mm, and given brand-new front and rear frames and a new suspension system within three months. According to Lukas, the car has taken "seven to 10 iterations" and was created in a fraction of the time it would have taken an OEM using normal technology. The technology lends itself to making changes much more rapidly, allowing Czinger to capture track data, simulate and change the car, and get fundamentally new parts onto it quickly.
