In a world of otherworldly electrified cars, there tends to be a lot of hype and not much substance. Consider Faraday Future, which was supposed to take down Tesla, or the Cybertruck's windows, which weren't supposed to break.
Let's hope California-based car startup Czinger bucks that trend.
Czinger made waves last week when it announced plans to reveal a "dominating" and "groundbreaking" hybrid supercar at the Geneva International Motor Show next month. Now the company has released the full specs of its 21C, and the vehicle appears to live up to the hype - on paper, at least.
According to an announcement from Czinger, the 21C puts up some astonishing performance numbers thanks to its featherweight construction and 1,250-horsepower hybrid powertrain. Czinger claims that the car speeds to 62 mph in less than two seconds, covers a quarter mile in 8.1, and hits a top speed of 268 mph - assuming those figures are accurate, the 21C would be one of the quickest-accelerating and fastest road cars out there.
