The latest off-the-chart performance car is the 2021 Czinger 21C, produced by the Los Angeles-based company founder Kevin Czinger. The car’s body is built using a 3D-printing process, then the parts are fused into a single piece and reinforced with carbon fiber. The uniquely styled cockpit has a 1+1 seating arrangement: The passenger is seated directly behind the driver. The powertrain consists of two electric motors in front (one for each wheel) plus a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-8 that delivers torque to the rear wheels. A third electric motor sandwiched between the engine and the seven-speed paddle-shift transmission also takes care of charging the batteries. Czinger claims the 1,233-horsepower powertrain will propel the 2,755-pound 21C to 100 km/h (62 mph) from rest in a neck-snapping 1.9 seconds, and run the quarter mile in 8.1 seconds. The cost is $1.7 million each.
Horsepower (1,233) aside, the most fascinating part of the Czinger is the chassis parts that are 3D printed and then fused together.
