Czinger reveals 21C El Mirage hypercar inspired by fighter jet design

Czinger has just lifted the lid on its latest hypercar – the 21C El Mirage.

It comes with a special livery developed by the LA-based company’s co-founder and COO, Lukas Czinger.

But what really makes this hypercar stand out is its fighter jet design.

But before getting into the details of the design of the 21C El Mirage, let’s first talk about the livery.

The hypercar wears a white paint finish for both the body and wheels, paired with red exterior accents on the front canards, side mirrors, and rear wing.

If the truth be told, red and white isn’t an unusual pairing, as it’s often used on custom top-end hypercars, like the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport Grand Prix.

However, on the 21C El Mirage, the rear wing’s red accents are said to be inspired by a fighter jet’s afterburn, which is fitting for a hypercar with this level of performance.

Speaking of which, the Czinger 21C is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.88-liter V8 engine with an ear-shattering 11,000 rpm redline.

With a couple of electric motors thrown in for good measure, the 21C produces a whopping 1,250 horsepower.

But if that’s not enough, Czinger will also offer a 1,350 hp output, which is more than the Lamborghini’s new V12 hypercar.

No slouch, the 21C El Mirage shattered the lap record for production cars at Laguna Seca.

With racing driver Joel Miller behind the wheel, the hypercar lapped the famous circuit in just one minute and 25.44 seconds, beating the McLaren Senna by more than two seconds.

It’s not been mentioned yet, but Czinger also offers a 21 C V Max with longtail bodywork, aimed at increasing top speed and high-speed stability.

What’s more, the American boutique brand recently unveiled the Blackbird Edition, inspired by the Lockheed S7-71 Blackbird aircraft.
