Czinger 21C hypercar promises 'revolutionary' performance

  Czinger 21C hypercar promises 'revolutionary' performance New car brand aiming to steal the show at next month's Geneva eventPromising to showcase a “paradigm shift in the way vehicles are designed, developed, engineered and manufactured”, the year-old brand is named after founder and CEO Kevin Czinger, the man behind the Divergent Blade supercar. The Blade was claimed to be the first car of its type to use 3D printing to form the body and chassis components.

It is an all- electric hypercar called the Concept Two that debuted today at the Geneva Motor Show. It claims to have a 1,914-horsepower engine that enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 1.85 seconds. That would make it one of the quickest cars in existence, quicker than the next-generation Tesla

Williams Advanced Engineering partnered with electric car manufacturer Vanda Electrics to produce Singapore's first ever electric hypercar , the Dendrobium, showcased at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday.

British sports car manufacturer Apex will reveal a new ‘hyper-EV’ at the Geneva motor show next month.

The firm, which launched the 620kg, 400bhp AP-1 as its debut model in 2019, claims the all-electric AP-0 weighs 1200kg – significantly lower than the majority of electric sports cars – thanks to the use of a pure carbonfibre tub at its core.

Performance figures are unconfirmed, but Apex claims the AP-0 will offer “rapid acceleration”, as well as “superior agility, outstanding handling and exceptional cornering ability”. The AP-1 can crack the 0-62mph sprint in well under three seconds and has a top speed of 174mph.

Like the AP-1, the AP-0 is expected to be designed mainly for track use, in the same vein as combustion-fuelled rivals such as the Radical Rapture, KTM X-Bow and Ariel Atom.

A preview sketch gives little away, but it appears the AP-0 will sport a heavily angled front end, bonnet-mounted mirrors and a centrally mounted, sharkfin-style carbonfibre wing.
