3D-Printed Czinger 21C Has ‘In-Line Seating’ And 1,250hp

What you’re looking at here is “a paradigm shift in the way vehicles are designed, developed, engineered and manufactured” from American “artisans”, Czinger.

These boys from California certainly don’t want for confidence, do they? Nor should in fairness, given that Czinger’s first production hypercar – designed, engineered, developed and manufactured in the USA – includes input from former staff of Swedish supercar manufacturer, Koenigsegg.

The Czinger 21C hypercar is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and will do so with an in-house designed hybrid powertrain producing a bone-jangling 1,250hp and 0-100kph in a fantastically rapid 1.9 seconds. That’s potentially faster than a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, an Ariel Atom 3.5R, and any Bugatti. Hellooooo nurse!

The exact configuration has yet to be revealed, but the unconfirmed internal combustion engine will be mated with an electric motor and a battery pack, plus, presumably, some utterly massive brake discs to bring that monstrous acceleration to a halt.

Of perhaps most interest though is the two-person in-line seating configuration – similar to that of a Renault Twizy – used primarily for the sake of driver involvement, and that aggressive bodywork, components of which have been produced using 3D-printing. That essentially makes the 21C a production, albeit limited edition, version of the 3D-printed Divergent Blade concept that company founder Kevin Czinger unveiled in 2017.

Cool car and interesting project, I have to say. I think that continuous fiber 3D printing is the best choice for this project. It is 30 times stronger than plastic and 7 times lighter than steel. Anisoprinting is already used by big industrial corporations and it really seems to be reliable stuff.
