the Czinger 21C takes the lap record at Laguna Seca

After the Tesla Model S Plaid, it is the turn of a hybrid supercar to explode the lap record of the Laguna Seca circuit. The Czinger 21C did 2 seconds better than the McLaren Senna… Former absolute record holder!

Definitely, the weeks go by and are alike on the Californian circuit of Laguna Seca. After the record of the Tesla Model S Plaid modified by Unplugged Performance – which became the fastest electric car on this track – another American car, hybrid this one, is talking about it.

The beast is called Czinger (pronounce “Zinger”) 21C. And this Czinger has just hit the headlines by going around the circuit in 1 minute 25 seconds 44 hundredths, which is almost 2 seconds better than the record absolu of the lap held by a production car, a McLaren Senna in this case. As a reminder, the English woman’s time was 1 minute 27 seconds and 62 hundredths.

Mechanical “house”

Completely designed by computer in order to be as efficient and light as possible, the Czinger 21C (for “21th Century”) is equipped with a thermal motor

developed in-house. It is a small 2.88-liter V8 powered by two turbos and two electric motors. On arrival, the whole thing develops the power of 1,250 hp. The car also has a all-wheel drive which helps him to stay the course on this kind of route.

Stratospheric figures!

Produced in only 80 units, the Czinger 21C goes from 0 to 100 km in just 1.9 seconds. As for the 0 to 300 km / h, it is shot in 8.5 seconds. Simply mind-boggling numbers. However, it seems that the manufacturer is developing a new model, even more powerful, offering an even more favorable weight / power ratio!
