Description:

This is the Czinger 21C – a 3D-printed hypercar. Weighing 1240kg – which isn’t very much – and a combined 1,233bhp (from a hybrid system consisting of a mid-mounted twin-turbo 2.9-litre V8 and e-motors for each of the front wheels) it’s fast. In “Low Drag” configuration Czinger claims the 21C has a top speed of 281mph and does 0-62mph in 1.9 seconds, 0-186mph in 8.5 seconds and 0-248mph in 21.3 seconds. 0-248mph-0 is said to take 27.1 seconds – a Bugatti Chiron does it in 41.96 seconds, and a Koenigsegg Regera in 31.49 seconds. Meanwhile in “High Downforce” configuration, Czinger claims the 21C makes 650kg of downforce at 100mph and 2,500kg at 200mph. Oh, and it’s just snatched the Laguna Seca lap record from a McLaren Senna. So we had to have a go. This is what happened when Jack Rix was the first in the world to drive an early prototype of this wild car.
