After weeks of teasing, Czinger has revealed the full specification of its 21C hypercar, due to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.

A feast of new images allow us to fully drink in the details of this new 3D-printed exotic. Here we go…

Czinger 21C: the engine

One of the biggest mysteries around this new hypercar was exactly what powers it. In teaser videos, it didn’t sound like your average turbocharged small-block V8, or an exotic Italian V12. It had the tone of a racing car, and indeed, the spec sheet reads like something from motorsport.

Noble Reveals New Entry-Level M500 With 550 HP

  Noble Reveals New Entry-Level M500 With 550 HP A fullsize mockup of the car was revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Noble has revealed its brand new entry-level model at t The M500 is set to be powered by the same biturbo 3.5-liter V6 Ford Ecoboost engine that can be found in the GT and F-150 models, producing around 550 horsepower compared with the 650 hp that the 4.4-liter unit in the M600 kicks out. A DSG automatic transmission is set to be used in the starter Noble, which will be rear-wheel drive, again distancing it from the 600, which comes with a manual gearbox only.

It’s a 2.88-liter twin-turbocharged flat-crank V8 revs to a dizzying 11,000 rpm. It produces 1,250 hp, which means the 1,250 kg 21C has a power to weight ratio of one horsepower per kilogram.

It’s not just the V8 creating that power, though. Augmenting it are two high-output electric motors, one for each front wheel, with full torque-vectoring capability. Powering those are very high-tech lithium-titanate batteries.

Be Cool With The 1965 Blizzard Mustang

  Be Cool With The 1965 Blizzard Mustang Built by Ringbrothers, this ride is pretty smooth. The Saudis have a healthy taste for American muscle cars, so it’s not a surprise to learn the 1965 Blizzard Mustang will be making an appearance at the inaugural Riyadh Car Show. Built by the Ringbrothers as a SEMA vehicle, this Ford Mustang fastback has been restomodded to look sleek and go fast. The simplified body lines on this car are perfectly complimented by the Blizzard White paint. Exposed carbon fiber and gloss black on various parts add the perfect amount of contrast.

Putting the engine’s oomph to the rear wheels is a seven-speed automated manual transmission. Those familiar with old Ferrari F1 gearboxes and the original Aston Martin Vanquish may quiver in fear at the thought of that.

Fear not, it is a new proprietary design by Czinger, so we expect it’ll whip-crack shifts like the very best dual-clutchers.

So what does it all add up to? Well, some seriously impressive figures. Czinger claims the 21C will get to 62mph in 1.9 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 8.1 seconds. Have that, Dom Toretto.

It’ll also do 0-186-0mph in 15 seconds, and 0-248-0 mph in 29 seconds. Top-end, it’ll be stomping (some) Bugattis at 268mph. Dizzying stuff. That jutting bodywork creates downforce of up to 250 kg at 155 mph, although that’s just for the standard car…

VW's ID.4 electric crossover will debut at the New York Auto Show in April

  VW's ID.4 electric crossover will debut at the New York Auto Show in April It will launch Volkswagen's electric offensive here in the United StatesA more coupe-like version of VW's electric crossover called the ID.5 is also on the way, and that sportier model is slated for an unveiling at some unknown later date. Both CUVs will ride atop Volkswagen's MEB platform, which will see use in everything from sedans to crossovers to wagons. With compact motor assemblies and a battery nestled in the floor, the ID.4 should offer more interior space than today's five-passenger Tiguan.

With what Czinger calls ‘Lightweight track configuration’, it can produce more than three times that: 790 kg at 155 mph. Top speed is reduced, however, to a lowly 236 mph.

Joking aside, that’s impressive for a high-downforce car. That’s because both benefit from the two seats being in-line in the middle of the car, allowing for a slim glasshouse and improved aerodynamics.

What do you make of the looks? As we’ve said before regarding the teaser shots, it resembles a Grand Theft Auto reimagining and amalgamation of multiple supercars. On the flip side, it does have its own unique silhouette thanks to that seating layout.

Czinger says the design originates from the concept of functional art. ‘Line logic’ is how the cuts and lines in the car all connect, to serve a function. It certainly, as Czinger says, ‘looks like nothing else on the planet’. For us, Minority Report meets McLaren P1 about sums it up.

As for how that cockpit looks and feels? We’ll have to find out at the Geneva Motor Show, where Czinger will be taking orders for the limited run of 80 cars. Speaking of, one number we don’t know yet is price. Needless to say, it won’t be cheap…
