The Czinger Hyper GT blends luxury with insane hybrid performance

Czinger has revealed its latest concept, the Hyper GT, and it’s the perfect follow-up to the company’s debut model.

The 21C, is one of the most advanced supercars on the market as it’s designed using AI technology and made with 3D-printed components.

The company is will employ the same technology when it comes to making its first four-seater.

Visually, the Hyper GT marks quite a departure from the 21C before it.

The company says the Hyper GT “carries forward the future design language of the Czinger brand”.

Wearing a smooth and sleek body, it features large gullwing doors on either side.

That’s reminiscent of the DMC Alpha5 in a way, which also uses a two-door body and 2+2 seat configuration.

Although the design is yet to be finalized for production, it’s unlikely much will change between now and then if the 21C is anything to go by.

The interior is yet to be revealed and the company is scarce on details aside from it being a four-seater.

Czinger is remaining vague on powertrain details as well, simply noting it will have “an in-house designed, strong hybrid drivetrain”.

There’s a good chance it could use the same 2.9-liter twin-turbo V8 from the 21C.

Given that it’s paired with a hybrid system to produce 1233hp, it would be a fitting powertrain for a hyper GT car like… well, the Hyper GT.

So, while details are limited for now, it’s safe to say the Hyper GT has our attention already.

You’ll have to stay tuned for production dates and pricing.

However, it’ll likely cost slightly less than the $1.7 million 21C of which just 80 will be made.

Czinger 21C V Max

The Hyper GT was revealed at The Quail during Monterey Car Week alongside another new Czinger model – the 21C V Max.

Unlike the standard 21C which is designed for handling with its advanced aerodynamics, the V Max is designed for straight-line speed.

As such, it does away with the big rear wing and has a less aggressive front splitter and side skirts.

That all makes it slippery enough to achieve what should be an insane top speed.

In 2021, Czinger speculated it could be as high as 452km/h (281mph), although an official number is yet to be confirmed.

For the sake of comparison, the standard 21C can hit 407km/h (253mph). It also gets from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 1.9 seconds.

The 21C V Max is worth mentioning here as Czinger notes the rear profile of the Hyper GT concept is modelled off that of the V Max.
