Czinger reveals 21C powertrain details


US manufacturer Czinger has released powertrain details for its hypercar. The 21C, which is set to debut at the Geneva International Motor Show next week, achieves a true 1:1 power to weight ratio thanks to an in-house-built hybrid V8 drive system.

At the heart of the C21 sits a 2.88-liter, flat crank V8 with twin turbos, and two continuous front traction motors. Also fitted with a crank-driven starter generator, power from the lithium-titanate batteries is available when needed. The hybrid set-up will generate 1235ps.

This is paired with a 7-speed sequential transaxle gearbox with a hydraulic actuated multi-plate clutch. Combined, the system will drive the C21 from 0 to 100km/h in 1.9 seconds and on to 400km/h in 29 seconds.
