Even salesmen with scrumptious cuts of meat to supply know that you simply promote the sizzle, not the steak. That is what Czinger went to Monterey Automotive Week to do with a 3rd model of its tandem two-seater 21C and its deliberate Hyper GT. We’ll begin with the 21C, which, bear in mind, launched with two physique kinds. There was a street model and a monitor model whose aero accoutrements offered thrice the downforce of the street automotive. The 21C V Max takes the street automotive in the wrong way of the monitor automotive, streamlining and elongating the bodywork to commerce drag for velocity.
The package deal ought to make extra pace from the two.88-liter twin-turbo V8 that sits behind the cabin in all 21Cs, aided by the 2 electrical motors on the entrance axle. Founder Kevin Czinger stated in Monterey the 1,233-horsepower powerplant permits the identical sub-two-second 0-60 time as the opposite variants. Having reworked all the things from the entrance splitter to the rear diffuser, the Vmax ought to be even quicker than the claimed 27-second dash from zero to 250 miles per hour and again to zero for the common 21C. Claimed quarter-mile time is 8.1 seconds, claimed prime pace is 253 miles per hour.
The V Max shall be a part of the 80-unit construct of the 21C, giving consumers three flavors to select from at a price of $1.7 million per. First deliveries are deliberate for the top of subsequent 12 months.
In some unspecified time in the future after the 21C begins deliveries, Czinger plans to have its second car headed to manufacturing, recognized for now because the Hyper GT. It is powered by the identical hybrid setup because the 21C however with the ICE put up entrance and — we assume — the e-motors in again. Czinger says this shall be “probably the most highly effective grand tourer ever produced” and “by far, the highest performing GT ever constructed and ever put out on the road” that additionally occurs to have room for 4 adults and their baggage; these occupants will enter by way of gullwing doorways, as a result of you’ll be able to’t see the wow issue of 1,233 hp on the valet stand.
Being to this point out from manufacturing, we’re unsure what the inside will maintain. However the firm plans to provide 1,000 of the Hyper GT at its Los Angeles headquarters, every costing between $750,000 and $1 million, after which observe it up with a battery-electric mannequin someday earlier than 2030. Czinger informed Autocar, “The unique conception of Czinger was to provide that final road-track automotive [the 21C] that would set the entire information.” After the reception to the 21C and breaking the Laguna Seca lap document, he stated, “Then the concept was ‘This might be a very, actually cool model,’ with the father-son mixture [referring to his son and co-founder Lukas], that creates a complete collection of probably the most off-the-hook automobiles in every of the classes.”
