California-based supercar maker Czinger Vehicles used The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, during Monterey Car Week to make two big announcements. The company launched the four-seater Hyper GT and the high-speed 21C V Max.
Czinger said the Hyper GT represented a new design direction for the company. The company wanted to have the classic look of a coupe but with the ability to carry four people. This vehicle has a large gullwing door for easy entry into the cabin.

The automaker did not elaborate on the Hyper GT’s powertrain. The only info available is that it’s a hybrid with an in-house design. More details will come as Czinger completes the vehicle. There is no info on when the model will go on sale.

Previously, company founder Keven Czinger offered Motor1.com some hints about the Hyper GT before we took a look: “It will be a lower priced four-seater. Higher volume, but still very exclusive. More volume by our standards.”
The 21C V Max takes the company’s existing 21C (above) and revises the exterior to reduce drag. Changes include eliminating the large front splitter and rear wing. Czinger claims the model is the leader among hypercars in terms of acceleration to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) and 250 mph (402 kph), in addition to quarter-mile times. However, the company does not publish these figures at this time.
Like the standard 21C, the Vmac uses a 2.88-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and two electric motors to produce a total of 1,250 horsepower (932 kilowatts). The standard model hits 62 mph in 1.9 seconds and covers the quarter mile in 8.1 seconds.
Inside, the 21C has tandem seating for its two passengers. There’s plenty of carbon fiber in the cabin, and the vehicle comes with a bespoke luggage set.
Czinger only plans to build 80 units of the 21C. Buyers can choose the standard high-downforce model or the low-drag V Max. The company plans to start shipping by the end of 2023.
By 2030, Czinger wants to offer six or seven available models, and each will be in a different segment.
