Czinger 21C Unleashed: 1,250 Horsepower, But Wait Until You See Its Top Speed
Ladies and gentlemen, we are more than pleased to inform you that Czinger, the Los Angeles-based carmaker that caught our attention recently, has unveiled further details about its 21C hybrid hypercar.
The Czinger 21C will walk that walk in March, at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, and it will do it with a V-8 built in-house and a pair of electric motors. Oh, yeah, and it’s blisteringly quick and fast, and Czinger plans to build just 80 examples, each priced at $1.7 million before any packages or options. Stick with us for the whole plot.
How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go in a Half Mile?
Lamborghinis are very fast, and that’s no secret. Pretty quick off the line, too. Even the big-boned Urus can hold its own in a 0-62 mph sprint, which it can dispatch in 3.6 seconds. But this video isn’t about the Lamborghini Urus. It’s about one of Lambo’s pure-breed, low-slung supercars and its ability to stretch its legs in the half mile.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster came out four years ago with bold claims: 50 kilos (110 pounds) lighter than the regular Roadster, heavily infused with CFRP (carbon-fiber reinforced polymer) and bonkers aero upgrades. But how well can it perform in a half-mile sprint?
It’s Time For The Shelby GT500 to Prove Itself Against the McLaren 720S
If you’re a regular TopSpeed reader, then you’re no stranger to what the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 can do in a straight-line race. We’ve covered a lot of situations where the muscle car destroyed its peers in a drag race or it bravely held its ground in front of the likes of Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, even on a twisty track.
This time, though, the GT500 found its match in the McLaren 720S. Not only that, but the GT500 you’re about to see getting a beating (repeatedly) from the Macca isn’t running on stock gear, as it has been modded to churn out 800 horsepower.
Can You Guess Where Aston Martin Is Getting Input From for the Valkyrie Hypercar?
Aston Martin will build eight Valkyrie pre-production prototypes that will help its engineers fine-tune the upcoming V-12 hypercar to perfection.
The first three prototypes, named VP1, VP2, and VP3, have already been given a run for their money at Silverstone, by none other than Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 drivers Max Verstappen and Alex Albon.
Czinger 21C: Finally Bringing the Hypercar Crown to America
As 2019 was drawing to a close, we predicted that 2020 will see a plethora of small carmakers taking a stab at the hybrid/electric supercar niche. And guess what: we were right.
By now, the name Czinger must have reached your eardrums and if it hasn’t, then you’ve come to the right place. Czinger is based in Los Angeles, California, and it grabbed a lot of headlines after announcing that it would come to Geneva with the 21C, a hybrid hypercar built with “the world’s most advanced production technologies,” under the supervision of Kevin Czinger, the man who designed the 2015 Divergent Blade.
Watch a McLaren Senna Almost Take Flight on an Old Space Shuttle Runway
From the first time it surfaced online to the present day, the McLaren Senna has been the subject of numerous track battles, road trips, and standalone reviews. They’re all well-documented through articles or videos, but there’s never been an instance where the supercar is let to stretch its legs freely and make the most out of its V-8. Or should we say… spread its wings and take off?
Someone took a Senna for a standing mile top speed test at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds runway to see if the McLaren-declared top speed of 208 mph is indeed attainable in real life.
2020 SSC Tuatara
The 2020 SSC Tuatara is the production version of a supercar that SSC North American has been developing since the late 2000s. Previewed by a concept car in 2011 and a pre-production model in 2018, the 2020 Tuatara is finally ready to go into production in 2020.
Aimed at supercars like the Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Jesko, and the Hennessey Venom F5, the 2020 Tuatara features a V-8 engine that generates up to 1,750 horsepower and promises to hit a top speed in excess of 300 mph. The supercar costs more than $2 million and is limited to only 100 units. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
We’ve Finally Learned Just How Extreme the Pagani Huayra Imola Really Is
Remember that cool, black and orange Pagani Huayra Imola that damn near broke social media when TopCar released a few images? Well there’s another one that’s just as extreme, a little less colorful, and – apparently – China bound. This specific model is one of the four remaining models and all the information and pictures comes from Pagani China. More importantly, though, we’ve learned more than we’ve ever known before about this ultra-rare, modified Huayra. Hint: It’s the most powerful Pagani ever built.
10 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked Fastest to Slowest
The list of the 10 fastest cars in the world is a list of excess. Where else can you find a list where the "slowest" car can still carry a top speed of 217 mph, enough to melt your eyeballs and rearrange your facial features?
This list contains the fastest and most powerful production cars to ever roam our roads. Some have reached mythical status, owing to the impact they had in creating the supercar industry. Some aren’t as influential, but they can still destroy any car they line up with, either in a drag race setting or just a complete top speed run. Feel free to check out these models. Just make sure you have something to wipe the drool off your faces.
New 2022 Audi R8: Everything We Know So Far
2019 was a splendid year for gearheads and high-end car companies alike. The Chevrolet Corvette went the mid-engine way, Bugatti blew past the 300 mph barrier with the Chiron, McLaren launched both the amazing Speedtail and the GT, while Lamborghini and Ferrari sold more supercars than they had planned.
So, we must ask. What’s Audi been doing? Sales of the Audi R8 haven’t been piercing holes through the roof, since you asked, and there’s intense talk about a new generation coming in 2022. So far Audi has been tight lipped on the topic, so the rumor mill did most of the talking. Here’s everything we know about the new Audi R8.
It takes three weeks to build the Ford GT Liquid Carbon
Let’s face it. The 2020 Chicago Auto Show was a dud. There’s no hiding from the fact that the format needs changing because utter dullness won’t cut it anymore. Even so, some debuts managed to shine through all that murky water.
The Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition was one of them. Ford’s supercar made a surprise appearance in Chicago, packing 13 more horsepower, better cooling, and a naked-carbon-fiber guise that ups the ante on the GT’s appeal. Turns out, though, that flaunting that exposed carbon fiber also triples the Ford GT’s build time.
2008 Lamborghini Reventón
The Lamborghini Reventon isn’t just a styling exercise that sits on the chassis and drivetrain of the Murcielago LP60. It’s the pole bearer for a new direction in Lamborghini design, a direction whose cues can be seen in future Lamborghini models such as the restyled Gallardo or the Aventador. The source of inspiration? Fighter jets.
Marcello Gandini all but dictated that all V-12 Lamborghinis have to be brash and dramatic with razor-sharp edges, clean surfaces, and aggressive angles all around. The Italian manufacturer didn’t have a visual identity before the year 1974 so they went with it, seeing how well the wedge-shaped mid-engined supercar faired. Then came the Diablo, then the Murcielago, all of which following the same path. However, with each new car, Lamborghini refined the edges, added a few curves here and there, made things softer.
The Reventon looked like a return to the roots. It looked like an F117A Blackhawk with that bespoke grayish green color covering all of the pointy surfaces and, for all the work Lamborghini put into the car’s exterior, you can forgive them for leaving the underpinnings taken straight from the Murcielago LP640 untouched. Just 20 examples were made a decade ago - yes, it’s that old! - and then Lamborghini set to work again cutting the roof off the car to create a Roadster version. Some thought it’s a bit weird while others love it. The going rate for one of these suggests there’s not much interest in them now they’ll still turn heads anywhere they go.
