Czinger put so much effort into launching its 21C hypercar in Geneva, just to be shot down by that over-popularized Coronavirus. So, the brand tore down its stand, boxed up its cars, and is now heading to London for an exclusive event that will stream online at 1:30 PM EST (18:30 GMT)
As you can see from the images that we have here, Czinger went all out for its first ever auto show stand. It even deckd out one of the two it brought to the show (just two of 80 to be built, by the way) with surfboards because nothing says U.S.-L.A. startup like surfboards on a hypercar, right?
What is the Czinger 21C Hypercar?
The Czinger 21 is the first of what we hope will be many American-bred hypercars. Limited to just 80 examples total, it claims to be one of the fastest cars to ever come from this side of the world. According to Czinger, the 21C came print to 62 mph in just 1.9 seconds, and it can even run the quarter-mile in 8.1 seconds.
That sleek bodywork is hiding a hybrid powertrain that packs one hell of a punch – 1,232 horsepower, to be exact. This thing is, believe it or not, in line with the Koenigsegg One:1, thanks to its 2,645 pound curb weight. That’s 1,200 kg, which means it has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, something very few cars in the world can lay claim to fame to.
That’s not the only place where Koenigsegg is under fire. The 21C can run from zero to 249 mph and back to zero in just 29 seconds, a figure that would best the Koenigsegg Regera by 2.49 seconds. It record for the same sprint, done in 31.49 seconds was officially set back in 2019. On top of that, the 21C can run from 0 to 186 mph and back to zero and in equally impressive 15 seconds. In the end, top speed is said to be 269 mph, which would also make it one of the fastest cars in the world.
