Weekend Daydreaming: What Is a Czinger 21C & Why Is It Eco-Friendly?

If you’ve got more money than you can possibly spend, love supercars and V8 powered cars in particular, then the new Czinger 21C could be ideal. It’s crazy fast, looks like a Batmobile and er…it’s a hybrid with battery power too. That makes it eco-friendly in our book of course, so please XR activists, save your ire for someone driving a Citroen AX diesel instead.

Here’s the specs on the Czinger, which makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show soon. We are predicting quite a high insurance group on this one.

  • Production of the 21C is limited to 80 vehicles with road and track-oriented variants – both of which offer options and individual customisation
  • 21C provides the ideal seating position to achieve optimal performance driving and weight distribution
  • Created by a small team of designers, engineers and scientists using a revolutionary, patented, production system
  • This proprietary production system enables design, engineering, optimisation and innovation in vehicle creation beyond what has previously been possible
  • The 21C is an all-wheel drive vehicle with a strong hybrid power train:
    • An in-house developed 2.88-litre, flat crank V8 with twin turbos located mid-vehicle
    • Two high output electric motors, each powering a front wheel with torque vectoring
    • An ultra-light, seven-speed automated manual transmission gearbox
    • Total output of 1250 hp (1233 bhp), redlining at 11,000 rpm
  • With 1250hp and dry weight under 1200kg, the all-wheel drive 21C features a true 1:1 power-to-weight ratio
  • Quarter mile time of 8.1 seconds and 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in 1.9 seconds
  • 0 to 186 mph (300 kph) to 0 in 15 seconds and 0 to 248 mph (400 kph) to 0 in 29 seconds
  • Global public debut at Geneva International Motor Show, press conference on 3 March, 11:00 – 11:15 CET
