Engineering automotive company Czinger Vehicles has been making a real splash in the industry since it unveiled a follow-up model to its 21C hypercar. Remember? The 21C hypercar is a partially 3D printed vehicle that smashed lap record in auto racing last year.
With a much more elegant look than its predecessor, the V Max features an elongated and pinched tail section, for added high-speed stability. Unveiled in the new eye-catching ‘Red My Mind’ colour, the manufacturer claims that this new baby would lead the industry in terms of acceleration figures, 0-250mph-0 times and quarter-mile times (no exact top speed has been stated yet).
What we do know however, is that the car comes with a 2.88-liter twin-turbocharged V8, supported by two electric motors for a peak output of 1,250 hp (932 kW). It can hit 60 mph in under 2 seconds, and it can cover a quarter mile in as little as 8.1 seconds.
What raises our interest even more is the technology at the heart of the manufacturing process. Described as the “world’s first Human-AI-designed and 3D-printed hypercar”, the 21C V Max would have benefited from Divergent Technologies’ DAPS system. The end-to-end hardware-software platform combines Additive Manufacturing and generative design, and is capable of computationally engineering, printing, and assembling automotive builds, with minimal human intervention.
These capabilities enable the platform to unlock rapid design iteration, while giving life to production of multiple different car models on the same machine. In a nutshell, this fabrication process is a real challenger to traditional automotive production processes.
“This is an exciting journey for us as we shatter the boundaries of design and performance,” said Kevin Czinger. The V Max is a new chapter in the 21C story, delivering high top speeds, unrivaled road and track performance and timeless elegance. This is a historic moment in time and one that will fundamentally change automotive manufacturing for generations to come. The future isn’t 10, 20 or 30 years away. The future is now.”
Deliveries for the 21C and 21C V Max are scheduled to commence in late 2023.
