California-based startup Czinger unveiled a brand new variant of its 21C supercar at The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, throughout Monterey Automotive Week.
The Czinger 21C V Max will get bespoke bodywork optimized for high-speed driving, the corporate stated in a press launch. It exhibits the convenience with which Czinger could make modifications to manufacturing fashions utilizing its 3D-printing tech.
For the V Max, these modifications embody an prolonged tail part, fighter-jet-like tandem seating, and a extra streamlined form missing the usual automobile’s giant rear wing. This removes some downforce however lowers the coefficient of drag.
Czinger 21C V Max
The V Max makes use of the identical powertrain as the usual 21C, consisting of a Czinger-developed twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter flat-plane crank V-8 and a hybrid system producing a complete of 1,233 hp.

The corporate has additionally quoted an 8.1-second quarter-mile time and 268-mph prime pace.
In 2021, Czinger took a prototype of the usual 21C to Texas’ Circuit of the Americas and set a production-car lap report of two:11:33, smashing the earlier report of two:17:12 set by a McLaren P1. Decrease downforce may harm the V Max’s lap occasions, but it surely might be succesful of a better prime pace.
Czinger 21C V Max
Czinger plans to construct 80 copies of the 21C, priced at $1.7 million every. Deliveries of each the usual model and the V Max are scheduled to start out in 2023.
Manufacturing will happen at Czinger’s Los Angeles-area facility utilizing the corporate’s proprietary strategies. Metallic elements are 3D-printed, whereas composite physique panels are shaped in molds. As an alternative of a standard meeting line, every part is then put collectively by robots in a single central location. This enables for lighter elements (the 21C monocoque weighs simply 265 lb, Czinger claims) and extra flexibility, but it surely’s a gradual course of. Every 21C will take 3,000 hours to construct.
Alongside the 21C V Max, Czinger additionally unveiled the extra luxurious Hyper GT coupe, which is predicted to enter manufacturing someday after the 21C. It is one in every of a number of fashions Czinger plans to launch within the coming years because it appears to develop into a full-line automaker.
