H.R. Owen has been appointed as the exclusive UK dealer and first international retailer for the ground breaking US performance car brand Czinger and its first model the Czinger 21C.
The Californian company becomes the latest addition to a list of partners that comprises Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, BAC, Rimac and Radford.
Czinger, which is based in Los Angeles, has created a major impression since its launch in 2019, thanks to its use of pioneering proprietary technology, and revolutionary ‘human-AI’ manufacturing techniques to develop sports cars with dominating performance and iconic design.
Those cutting-edge processes, which include automated design and 3D printing, have resulted in Czinger’s first production model, the outstanding 21C.
The four-wheel-drive hybrid hypercar uses the world’s most power-dense production internal combustion engine – a 2.88-litre V8 with twin turbochargers and an 11,000rpm red line – paired with an 800-volt electric drive system to deliver a peak output of 1233bhp. The power is fed through a seven-speed sequential transaxle gearbox.
In a model that weighs only 1,250kg, this equates to devastating performance. 0-100kph (0-62mph) is dispatched in 1.9 seconds, while 0-300kph (0-186mph) takes only 8.5 seconds. A top speed of 253mph is possible.
Welcoming Czinger to H.R. Owen, CEO Ken Choo said: “The Czinger 21C is a very special car, designed without limitations of cost. It sits at the very top of the automotive hierarchy, offering an experience that even some of the most established and sought-after supercar brands in the world would struggle to offer. It is the ultimate track day car.”
Enthusiasts in the UK will get their first opportunity to see the car in June, when it makes its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Members of the H.R. Owen team will be on hand in the Supercar Paddock between 23 and 26 June to handle inquiries. First deliveries of the 21C are scheduled for early 2023, with production limited to just 80.
The model represents only the first in a diverse series of exclusive performance vehicles coming from Czinger, each of which will be available through H.R. Owen in the years ahead.
