You can be forgiven if you do not remember the details of Czinger’s mind-bending 21C. When it was debuted back in late February of 2020, the world was ready for a 3D-printed American hypercar with two center-mounted seats and two equally massive butterfly doors covering both rows. Over the next three weeks, the gravity of the COVID-19 pandemic seemed to become clear all at once; even the Geneva Motor Show, where the car was set to be physically debuted, was canceled within a week of the reveal.
But the Czinger 21C is a car worth remembering. At Laguna Seca, the Czinger is faster than a McLaren Senna. Or any other car, for that matter.
The 1200 hp hybrid hypercar is far from humble, but its relatively simple design hides just how fast the car actually is. What looks like a Lotus-style track toy is in fact a true hybrid powerhouse, one that Czinger claimed back in February of last year could hit 60 in under two seconds. It tops out at an equally astonishing 270 MPH, all while producing downforce levles that CEO Kevin Czinger describes as “GT3 car plus in terms of being glued to the track”.
