The Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) takes place in Switzerland in a few weeks. The event usually features several high-profile new model launches. Manufacturers who do not want to be overshadowed typically show their creations slightly ahead of time. That is why we get to see the Czinger 21C a few weeks before its public unveiling.
The Czinger 21C (pr: Zinger, much like a crispy chicken burger) is designed, manufactured and assembled in Los Angeles, California. The firm says that its creation is produced using the world’s most advanced technologies. Under that sleek body lies a hybrid powertrain that produces 920 kW, though Czinger does not divulge any info on the internal combustion engine (ICE) component of the powerplant. The company’s press material states that the car will sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 1,9 seconds. No top speed is quoted.
Interestingly, the Czinger 21C features seating for two, but in an inline configuration a la a jet fighter aircraft. The layout seems fitting considering that some of performance claims were validated at the Alameda Naval Base in San Francisco, California. If two seats is one too many for you, then check out this article that showcases single-seat cars.

Take a look at Czinger’s Bond Villain-esque production facility, as well as some of the high-tech production techniques and materials used in the creation of the Czinger 21C in the videos below. You can also see and listen to the new hypercar in action on the road. If you are attending the GIMS then you can get a closer look at the car in Hall 1 at booth 1030.
