Inspired by the iconic Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” spy plane, the latest rendition of Czinger’s 21C has hit the scene, embracing the legacy of record-breaking speed.
This Blackbird Edition hypercar, cloaked entirely in a bespoke Jet Black hue, pays homage to its aeronautical muse with every detail meticulously designed.
Introduced in early 2020, the original Czinger 21C made waves by setting a blistering lap time of 1 minute and 25.44 seconds at California’s WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway, surpassing the previous record held by the McLaren Senna.
With a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter flat-plane crank V8 and a pair of electric motors, the original boasted 1,250 horsepower. The Blackbird Edition, however, takes it up a notch with an extra 100 horsepower, totaling an impressive 1,350, all expertly harnessed by an all-wheel-drive system.
A hypercar that blurs the line between aviation legend and cutting-edge automotive engineering, propelling itself with the same spirit that once graced the skies at Mach 3.
Inside, bespoke Blackbird finishes echo the glow of afterburners, while titanium components nod to the SR-71’s heritage. The tight yet ergonomic cabin, adorned with custom badging, promises an exhilarating driving experience.
Just as the SR-71 dominated the skies in its prime, the 21C has left its mark on racetracks across the U.S. With record-breaking runs at Laguna Seca and Circuit of the Americas, it’s clear that this hypercar isn’t just for show.
But like its aeronautical counterpart, the 21C Blackbird Edition will be a rare sight. Czinger plans to produce only 80 models across all special edition projects.
With its standard and V Max versions already causing a stir, this latest addition is sure to secure its own place in automotive history.
Much like the SR-71’s legendary feat in 1990, the 21C has etched its own chapter in the record books. From Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., and across the U.S., it’s a testament to the enduring spirit of speed and innovation, bridging the realms of aviation and automotive excellence.”
