This Czinger hypercar proves that 3D-printed vehicles are the future

Czinger wants to revolutionize the hypercar and prove that 3D-printed performance vehicles are the future.

This is the 21C, a carbon fiber beauty designed by software and built by a machine.

The company itself invented and patented an AI software that designed the main structure of the hypercar you see here.

Kevin Czinger, the company’s founder and CEO, says it’s so intelligent that it could solve problems “that 1,000 engineers” couldn’t.

The technical complexity of the chassis shouldn’t distract us from the party piece: the engine.

CHECK THIS OUT!

And there’s more good news.

Gearheads will be happy to know that despite the ultra-futuristic look, the 3D-printed hypercar is not electric.

The 3D-printed hypercar is technically a hybrid but there’s a gas-powered eigh-cylinder heart that beats under the hood.

It has 2.88-liter twin-turbo V8 and a grand total of six tiny electric motors, for a combined power output of 1,350 hp.

And that means that it only takes 1.9 seconds to get to 60 mph and 13.8 seconds to get to 186 mph.

The top speed is in excess of 400 km/h (248 mph).

Obviously, these mind-blowing figures are impressive but there’s still a million-dollar question: who is actually going to buy it?

The car world is teeming with hypercars from independent small-batch manufacturers and collectors generally love them.

Partly because they feel exclusive.

For example, the 21C is limited to just 80 units worldwide.

It costs $2 million, which makes it cheaper than any Bugatti and most Paganis.

It is even cheaper than the newly-released Rimac Nevera, the all-electric hypercar that former F1 champion Nico Rosberg recently bought.

At the end of the day, it’s nice to see automakers combining cool tech with some old-school fun.
