253mph Czinger 21C V Max targets the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
Following the launch of its cutting-edge 21C in 2020, Czinger has now revealed the 21C V Max, a second variant focusing on high velocity. Manufacturing is already underway for each fashions, and first deliveries are set for late 2023. Up-and-coming supercar producers usually are not uncommon in our modern age of electrical supercars, however there is perhaps one or two explanation why Czinger, a brand new Los Angeles-based firm, would possibly simply shine just a little brighter than most.
Like its customary counterpart, the V Max is powered by a extremely strung inner combustion engine related to a hybrid system consisting of an electrical motor and battery pack for an output of 1250bhp, with an extra 1350bhp choice obtainable. That determine is generated by the mixture of a mid-mounted 2.88-litre, flat-plane crank V8 boosted by a pair of turbochargers and pushed by way of a seven-speed automated handbook transmission, together with a pair of electrical motors, every powering a entrance wheel.

The place the V Max variant differs is its exterior design, with an prolonged tail and the removing of excessive downforce fastened aero gadgets that assist enhance acceleration and attain a better goal 253mph high velocity.
This joins the earlier 21C, which due to a extra aggressive aero package deal is alleged to realize as much as 2500kg of downforce at 200mph in its most aggressive customary configuration, 615kg of that coming at simply 100mph. For comparability, the brand new 992 Porsche 911 GT3 RS produces 860kg at 177mph.
As McLaren discovered within the early ’90s, if there’s one thing that may set you other than the gang, an uncommon seating association could be it. Designed, engineered, developed and manufactured within the USA, the Czinger 21C differs from virtually all different supercars with its tandem seating place, putting the passenger behind the motive force. Solely seen elsewhere on varied cab-leaning contraptions and the non-watertight Renault Twizy, the tandem nature of the 21C is, in Czinger’s phrases, designed for ‘optimum efficiency and weight distribution’.
As you would possibly anticipate with such an influence output and a dry weight quoted as little as 1250kg, efficiency figures are set to be somewhat spectacular. The 0-62mph dash is available in a quoted 1.9sec, 0-186mph (or 300km/h) and again to zero in 13.8 seconds, and 0-248mph (400km/h) to again to nought in what’s in all probability fairly an thrilling 27.1 seconds – that’s a good bit faster than the 31.49sec achieved by the Koenigsegg Regera in 2019.
To show its price, Czinger lapped Laguna Seca in a record-breaking 1:25:44, beating the McLaren Senna’s time to turn into the quickest manufacturing automotive across the well-known California circuit.
One thing that Czinger does specify is its use of additive manufacturing and superior composites, taking full benefit of new-age strategies to make the 21C as inflexible and light-weight as doable. Peel again the layers and we will see carbonfibre torsional helps and 3D-printed nodes knitting the construction collectively in an identical strategy to a standard tubular metal area body.
Extra than simply being a lighter and fewer time-consuming manner of manufacturing these kinds of advanced shapes, 3D printing additionally permits engineers and designers to scale back materials in non-critical structural factors, lending an natural aesthetic high quality to those inner parts. Complementing the modern construction will probably be high-quality, book-matched carbon exterior panels, and a easy inside with a single data show forward of the motive force.
Might Czinger be the following small producer to interrupt into the mainstream like Pagani and Koenigsegg have carried out earlier than? We’ll get a greater thought when the primary of its 80 examples hit the street in 2023.
