Inside the $2 million 3D-printed hypercar built by AI – the Czinger 21C

The $2 million Czinger 21C is a hybrid hypercar built for the 21st century.

It has a massive 1250HP and each part of the hypercar was made using technology engineered by artificial intelligence.

This beast has a top speed of up to 452km/h (281mph) and can do 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) in 1.9 seconds.

Under the hood of the 2.88-liter, twin-turbo V8, parts of the engine have been 3D printed.

There are two high-output electric motors, each powers a front wheel.

The V8 can run on regular petrol, but it can also take carbon recycled methanol and other e-fuels.

This would make it a zero-emissions car.

Other than the 3D printed parts, the rest of the hypercar is made from carbon fiber, titanium and aluminum.

Czinger wanted the 21C to be track-focused, so they’ve made it as lightweight as they could.

In fact it is so fast, the 21C broke the Laguna Seca lap record with 1.25.44.

The previous record of 1.27.62 was held by the McLaren Senna.

Supercar Blondie’s Alex Hirschi got an exclusive look at the pre-production model of the 21C.

Only 80 of these hypercars will be made.

Each will weigh just 1250 kilograms, meaning it has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.

“So basically that means for every kilo of car you have, you have one horsepower, which is kind of crazy,” Alex said.

“When you go 200 miles an hour, this actually has about 2500 kilos of downforce just sitting here on the wings.

“In theory, you could actually drive the car upside down without it falling, which is mad.”
