To make the wasplike 21C—one of the fastest street-legal, mass-produced cars ever—Czinger used the all-in-one Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS). In tandem with human input, generative AI engineered the car and 3D-printed and assembled the components, including the first fully printed suspension. It starts at $2 million, but co-founder Lukas Czinger says it’s not just a luxury: “Yes, it’s hugely expensive. But it’s doing something quite revolutionary.” DAPS minimizes the amount of structural material by 15% to 40% and makes lighter, more efficient vehicles—reducing waste and streamlining the supply chain.
