Czinger Vehicles has unveiled its new 21C V Max and Hyper GT during Monterey Car Week in California, USA. Both cars will feature extensive metal additively manufactured structures and components throughout.

The 21C Max is the second body style of Czinger’s 21C, its first production car. Engineered with a focus on combined acceleration and top speed, the V Max’s extended tail profile separates it from its high-downforce counterpart. Optimised for high speed, the bodywork of the V Max was designed to produce the lowest coefficient of drag possible. The in-house designed hybrid powertrain features a 2.88 litre twin turbo V8 with a combined output of 932 kW (1250 hp).

Sales of the 21C have been swift to date, with just eighty cars manufactured in total, and the option for owners to select either the high downforce (21C) or low drag (21C V Max) iterations, in addition to bespoke design options.

“This is an exciting journey for us as we shatter the boundaries of design and performance,” stated Kevin Czinger. “The V Max is a new chapter in the 21C story, delivering high top speeds, unrivalled road and track performance and timeless elegance. This is a historic moment in time and one that will fundamentally change automotive manufacturing for generations to come. The future isn’t ten, twenty or thirty years away. The future is now.”

Also previewed was the Hyper GT, a speed-focused coupe with a front end intended to convey power and road confidence while the rear mirrors the 21C V Max’s aerodynamic design. Developed utilising Czinger’s proprietary Human-AI design, automated assembly and sustainable manufacturing systems, the chassis structure of the Hyper GT is designed for good gran tourer power:weight and employs an in-house designed, strong hybrid drivetrain.

Lukas Czinger, “We have created the world’s most technologically advanced hypercar. From the AI-driven design software used to engineer it to the patented alloys its structures are printed in, the 21C embodies more than seven years of development and hundreds of millions of capital investment. We are excited to introduce new segment defining models to our line-up in the years to come and establish Czinger as one of the great American automotive brands of our time.”

The first Czinger 21Cs – in both body styles – are projected to be delivered in late 2023. Further information on the Hyper GT is expected when the design is finalised.
