Can Higher Power Density Engines Lead to Broader 3D Printing Use?

( PRO is available only to subscribers)

Traditionally, when it comes to sports cars, interest has centered around metrics such as horsepower per cubic inch and power-to-weight ratios. These metrics are calculated and interpreted differently by various people, though the primary focus often remains on raw horsepower. With the rise of hybrid, electric, and petrol engines all competing for a spot in your driveway, more useful metrics are increasingly necessary.

According to CarBuzz, Czinger’s 21C engine has the highest power density in the world. The turbocharged V8 engine, with a 2880 cc capacity, achieves a specific output of 329.86 hp/l, surpassing any production car including the latest offerings from Bugatti and Ferrari. Rather than focusing solely on horsepower and acceleration, this perspective emphasizes efficiency, allowing engines with smaller capacities to perform exceptionally if they are highly efficient.
