The man behind the Divergent Blade, a 3D-printed supercar, is at it again. Czinger Vehicles is poised to debut its U.S.-developed model, the 21C in front of the crowd during the Geneva International Motor Show in early March.

An early peek at the car has revealed Pagani and Koenigsegg-like looks and a smiling LED taillight at the rear sitting below a giant wing. Led by company CEO and founder Kevin Czinger, the designer of the Divergent Blade, Czinger Vehicles has put forth some impressive stats regarding the C21. It says that it has 1,233 horsepower and can get from zero to 62 mph in 1.9 seconds.

In an interview last year with Road and Track, Czinger said, "We're looking to combine computing power, science, and additive manufacturing into one system."

Ahead of the car's debut Czinger has released two hype videos:

When describing the Divergent Blade, Czinger revealed that it's made of 3D-printed sections that are fused together using reinforced carbon fiber elements. That structure also included aluminum and titanium. The 21C likely features much of the same components.

We already know that the 21C will not have traditional seats. Like in a fighter jet or a Renault Twizzy, the two seats will be one behind the other at the center of the car.

Czinger will build customer versions of the 2C1 in Los Angeles where the company has its headquarters. The company already has a worldwide dealer network with salespeople in Los Gatos, Beverly Hills, Miami, Mexico City, Dallas, New York, London, Munich, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart.
