Perhaps the Start of an Automaking Revolution
LA based Czinger Vehicles has built a spectacular, $2 million, carbon-fiber hypercar, the Czinger 21C. The car's speed, power and performance are unprecedented. And so are the design and manufacturing process. The car was designed by Czinger's proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) and then totally 3D printed. The new technologies could result in a revolutionary new approach to automaking. The company says their systems are so precise and efficient that a team of 1,000 engineers could not have gotten even close to the results of the Czinger 21C.
The Czinger 21C is one heck of a ride around the racetrack. The $2 million car created by the system is nothing short of stellar. It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 1.9 seconds, packs 1,250 hp and claims top speeds of 253 mph. To build the vehicle, Czinger invented a fixture-less assembly process where there is no specific fixtures or tooling required to hold pieces in place during the robotic assembly. The 3D printed pieces are bonded together by Czinger's proprietary adhesive in 2 seconds. And the assembly process changes from building the car's rear frame to the chassis with just a software change. This is a potentially new and powerful approach to car manufacturing that happens to have spectacular results with the Czinger 21C. For more news stories like this, Future Travel Vehicles
