PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda Cinque

Back in the late 2000s, Pagani’s official dealer in Hong Kong requested that Pagani build “the most extreme road-legal Zonda ever created.” Pagani was up to the challenge and, in 2009, Pagani issued a direct response to the request with the Pagani Zonda Cinque. The Cinque was produced in just five examples (with an additional five examples built in roadster form) and was built with the track performance standards of the Zonda R combined with the road-legal standards of the Zonda F.

The end result was a car that was more powerful than the Zonda F with the looks of something that should be chained up inside of a luxurious stable at the track. Furthermore, The Zonda Cinque was actually the first road-legal car that was supported by a carbon-titanium frame and the first Zonda to have a six-speed sequential transmission. Powered by a detuned version of the Mercedes-sourced 7.3-liter V-12, the Zonda Cinque was obviously a very special machine.

As of the time of this writing, seven years has passed since the Zonda Cinque made its official debut (and made five wealthy people very happy,) so let’s take a look back on one of the coolest Zonda’s ever made. After all, one could say it is a genuine work of art.

PostHeaderIcon You Can Now Configure The Pagani Huayra Roadster Of Your Dreams

As expected, the Pagani Huayra Roadster made a heck of an impression at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It came with a revised design that featured, among other things, a new fascia, two removable roof panels, and nacelles behind each seat. It also featured a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine that pumps out 752 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. Most of all, even with the Roadster configuration, it still managed to shed off 176 pounds compared to the coupe, thanks in large part to the abundance of carbon fiber and titanium used in the car. Knowing all of this makes the Huayra Roadster a must-have supercar. And no more is that true than with Pagani’s claim that all 100 units of the supercar are already spoken for, leaving the rest of us peasants with nothing more than an online configurator to turn our dreams of owning one into (virtual) reality.

On the contrary, the online configurator is actually a very good thing, because not a lot of us have $2.4 million to spend on the car. Luckily the alternative is rather fun, especially since it costs about as much as the oxygen that you’re inhaling right now.

Like most online configurators, the one for the Huayra Roadster is easy to navigate. You can pick from as many as 20 different color schemes, each having its own appeal. There’s also a choice of four different wheels and three interior trims, all of which you can mix and match to create the Huayra Roadster of your dreams.

Apparently, Pagani even keeps track of those who play with the online configurator, ranking the combinations that were used depending on popularity. At the moment, everybody seems to be on the hook for the Blu Francia-colored Huayra Roadster, which occupies the top four spots in the leaderboard of sorts. That’s hardly a surprising turn of events because it’s the same color Pagani used on the press shots of the supercar. The top combination not only makes use of the Blue Francia paint, but it also comes with Transparent Black Mamba gloss exterior, Black alloy wheels, and a Black interior trim.

Are you in favor of this combination for the Huayra Roadster, or are you digging the convertible supercar in another garb? Go to the online configurator and find out.

PostHeaderIcon Already Sold Out Pagani Huayra Roadster Unveiled

Huayra_Roadster_head

So after a number of painfully exciting teaser, Horacio Pagani of Pagani Automobili green-lighted the online debut of his latest and finest creation, the Pagani Huayra Roadster. The drop top version of the Huayra hard top has been the most challenging project ever undertaken by the prestigious car maker which, of course, means there is a lot more to this car than just a removable carbon top in place of the regular roof.

Pagani Huayra Roadster was designed and built using “La Bellezza” philosophy which in its essence means a beautiful balance between art and science. And that is what this car is. It is technically brilliant and aesthetically pleasing, and it also has that unique quality that you can’t put your finger on but know that it’s present, and that is what makes it a piece of art. Well, that and all the exotic material used in making it such as carbon and titanium and glass (in the removable roof) and of course the leather adorning the interior.

The first hyper roadster to be lighter than its coupe sister, the Pagani Huayra Roadster is a serious performance machine with track tune suspension and such taut chassis and aerodynamic properties that enables it to pull 1.8 Gs. The topless hyper machine shares its twin-turbo V12 AMG-built engine with other Huayra models, but here it makes 764 horsepower and over a 1,000 Nm of torque, which is enough to wreak havoc on the sturdiest of toupees. We should mention the Huayra comes with two roof options, one a lightweight carbon arrangement with a glass bit in the middle and a fabric and carbon cover which is a bit of a faff to erect but delightfully vintage looking when it’s up.

Pagani Huayra Roadster is limited to 100 copies, all of which have already been sold at an undisclosed but undoubtedly dear price. You will find the technical specs of the car below…

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra Roadster

Pagani debuted the Huayra in 2012 as the replacement for the aging Zonda, despite the fact that the manufacturer continued to roll out special edition Zondas through 2014. The Huayra name may sound odd at first, but it is based on the God of the wind, Wayra Tata, from the era of the Inca empire. The Huayra coupe was limited to only 100 units and has been sold out since 2015, but since then, Pagani has launched the hardcore BC version and a handful of unique, bespoke models. In 2017, Pagani introduced the Huayra Roadster, a drop-top with bespoke chassis and features.

Reports of a roadster version started circulating shortly after the coupe debuted, with initial reports claiming a release was planned for 2016. That obviously didn’t happen, but the Italian firm confirmed that the open-top supercar will make its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. Come February and the Huayra Roadster unveiled itself to the world.

Unlike other supercars in this expensive niche, the Huayra Roadster isn’t just a hacked-up coupe. Instead, the Italian manufacturer prepared a healthy power increase, made it lighter than the coupe, and gave it a revised chassis with bespoke settings. Granted, the Huayra is already expensive, so it’s only natural to ask yourself whether the Roadster is awesome enough to warrant its massive price tag? Find out more about that in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Unique Pagani Zonda Zozo Crashes in Tokyo

Supercars are fast, good looking (well, most of them at least), cool, and can be seen as a solid investment, but all come with a major downside, no matter the badge. With all that oomph available at a simple push of the gas pedal, they tend to go wild and push you off the road, especially if you’re not paying close attention or lack the necessary skills to handle it. When that happens, not only do they require expensive repairs (given they can be salvaged, that is!), but the occupants need a bit of luck to survive. Fortunately, the Zonda you see in the photo didn’t claim the life of its driver, but the owner will have to make a serious investment to get it back on the road again.

The car in question is the Pagani Zonda Zozo, a supecar commissioned by Yusaku Maezawa, the owner of the Japanese online retailer Zozotown. According to GT Spirit, the purple Zonda was smashed on December 3 somewhere in Tokyo, losing its front hood in the process. Information as to what happened specifically is scant, but things don’t look that bad and it appears that the car’s cockpit is intact. This means the occupant(s) escaped unscathed, which is the best news we can have following a car accident. The Zonda, on the other hand, will require an expensive visit to Horacio Pagani’s shop.

Although the damage isn’t very extensive, it’s heartbreaking to see any Zonda like that, especially with most models being unique. The Zozo is one of them, being designed with partially covered rear wheels, an extra set of red taillights, and a bespoke purple paint that makes it stand out just about anywhere. Fixing the car shouldn’t be an issue for Pagani, which has rebuilt previous unique models in the past (the Zonda Fantasma and Absolute come to mind), and I guess it’s safe to assume that Maewaza can afford to spend some serious cash to get it running again.

Speaking of expenses, it appears that the Zonda collided with the Maybach 62S seen in the same image. Now that’s a multi-million-dollar car crash right there.

PostHeaderIcon Is Pagani Calling Its Shot On A New Nürburgring Lap Record?

Nine years ago, Pagani stormed the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the Zonda F, chassis #58, and proceeded to set the 12.9-mile lap record with a time of 7:27.82. The Zonda F’s record has since been broken a number of times, but after close to a decade of slumber, Pagani appears to be preparing for another run at the track’s lap record. The Italian automaker didn’t specifically say its intentions, but a post on its official Facebook account seems to indicate that a return to the ‘Ring for a crack at that record is imminent. Naturally, we’re all losing our minds because of what that could mean.

Pagan concluded its post with the always annoying “to be continued” disclaimer so there’s not much to go by on what the automaker’s intentions are. If it does end up vying for the lap record, the natural candidate to make that attempt is the Huayra BC, the ultra exclusive, 20-unit special edition version of the Huayra that Pagani only offered to existing owners of the Huayra.

For the record, the Huayra will likely aim for the record set by the Marc Lieb and the Porsche 918 Spyder when it blitzed the track in just six minutes and 57 seconds back on September 4, 2013. The 918 Spyder’s lap time is regarded as a the fastest lap for a road legal car, but if the Huayra BC really wants to earn that undisputed label that has eluded the 918 Spyder, it should in fact shoot for the six-minute and 48-second lap time set by Michael Vergers and the Radical SR8 LM back on August 2009. The SR8 LM’s status as a non-road-legal car in some parts of the world has prevented it from staking the claim as the fastest road-legal car around the ‘Ring.

The Huayra BC can render all the debate irrelevant if it does cross the line faster than the SR8 LM. Or it could really break the Internet if it eclipses the all-time record set in May 1983 by Stefan Bellof in a Porsche 956 race car. He clocked in a time of six minutes and 11 seconds, which remains the fastest lap anyone has ever gone around the 12.9-mile track.

Expect Pagani to reveal more details about what that Facebook message means, but from the way the company phrased the whole thing – it even added a video of the Zonda F’s lap record back in 2007 – I’m willing to call the automaker’s shot and say it’s gunning for road-legal lap record around the ‘Ring.

That, or it’s done it already and Pagani’s just teasing us about it. The Huayra BCA, after all, was spotted in the Nürburgring doing some test laps recently. The drama is building up already.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda by Mileson

Pagani is one of those companies that sits up there with the likes of Koenigsegg. It has a very limited customer base and offers a completely different flare compared to brands like Lamborghini and Ferrari. Pagani has a small but wealthy customer base that loves to request one-off cars like the Revolucion Special Edition, Zonda Manual 760 Roadster, and the ZoZo, to name a few. Now, it looks like Zonda and one of its wealthy customers have done it again, and this time, we’re talking about another one-off Zonda created for famed supercar collector Mileson Guo. Hence the name Zonda 760 by Mileson.

For now, there are very few details available about the actual car, but we were able to locate some pictures of the car and, needless to say, it is as beautiful as they come. Of course, it is a one-off, so it’s the only one like this you’ll ever see, but it does feature a beautiful blue hue across most of the body with black accents. And there’s something about that wing that we need to talk about as well. So, with that said, let’s dive on in and take a look at this very special one off.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda MD

The Zonda debuted at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show as Pagani’s first production model. Under development since the late 1980s, the Zonda’s design was inspired by jet fighters and the Sauber-Mercedes Group C race cars. The car was first tested at the Dallara wind tunnel in 1993, and in 1994, Mercedes-Benz agreed to supply Pagani with V-12 engines. Pagani launched many developments of the Zonda throughout the years, offering updated aerodynamics and engines. While the prototype’s 6.0-liter V-12 generated 389 horsepower, the final 760-series models came with a larger 7.3-liter V-12 that cranked out 760 horsepower. Releases included track-ready and track-only versions, as well as an array of one-off variants built to unique specs.

Although the nameplate was officially retired in 2011, when the Huayra was introduced as a replacement, new Zondas, mostly unique cars with expensive options, kept rolling out from Pagani’s shop. The latest to see the light of day is the Zonda MD, which was completed and delivered to its lucky owner in June 2016.

Whether this is the last Zonda to leave Horacio’s shop or not is a mystery only time will solve, but given Pagani’s tradition as a bespoke car manufacturer, I wouldn’t be surprised to see new models hitting the streets later this year. But until that happens, let’s have a closer look at Horacio’s latest Zonda project, the MD. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, those two letters are the initials of the owner.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra Tempesta

Pagani has been known to create some pretty wild vehicles. I mean look at models like the Zonda Revolucion and the Huayra BC, for example. They are clearly two of the wildest machines created, but now Pagani is stepping things up for the Huayra coupe with a new package. Dubbed the Pacchetto Tempesta, the kit is offered as an option on new Huayra models or as a retrofit for those of you who already own a Huayra.

This new package comes with aerodynamic enhancements as well as a few other upgrades that will help improve the car’s handling and driving characteristics. According to Pagani, the kit provides “more responsive behavior,” and reduced body roll and pitch, providing a “sporty yet comfortable driving experience.”

The real shocker about the whole Pacchetto Tempesta’ package is the invoice that comes with it. With a price tag of €160,000, or about $182,480 at current conversion rates. So, for the price of this upgrade kit, you could get yourself a new McLaren 540C or even a new Porsche 911. So, with a price that high, let’s take a good look at the kit and see what makes it worth that much money.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra Pearl

Pagani is a young automaker that has only been around for 24 years. For most of that time, its primary production model was the Zonda. Before the Zonda was officially killed off, the brand had begun working on the Pagani Huayra, or the C9, as it was known in the Pagani design studio. The original Huayra came to be in 2011, but we weren’t graced with the Huayra BC until 2016. In between, Pagani released a number of special edition models like the Huayra White Edition, Huayra Carbon Edition, and the Huayra Project Vulcan, among others.

Now, Pagani has designed another one-off Huayra, but this time, it was built specifically for a customer of Refined Marque – an exotic car dealership that specializes in sourcing, supplying, and purchasing the world’s most exotic cars. The new Huayra is called the Huayra Pearl, and it represents a combination of everything Pagani has learned over the years. The car itself even has a few strands of DNA from the Huayra BC and the Zonda R.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a whole lot of specifics about the Huayra Pearl. But, now that you know its origins and purpose, let’s take a closer look at it. Maybe we can make out a few things that help to make it so special.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Teases Mystery Huayra: Video

It’s been less than a month since Pagani introduced the hardcore Huayra BC at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show, and the Italian supercar maker is already working on a new iteration of its AMG-powered machine. The news comes straight from Pagani itself, which just released a 30-second video teaser through its official YouTube channel. And, while the clip doesn’t reveal much about this upcoming model, it’s intriguing to say the least.

We already know that Pagani is preparing a roadster version of the sold-out coupe, but we’re 100-percent sure that the model in the teaser is something different. First, because the supercar appears to sport a hood scoop, which can’t be fitted on a convertible and would make for an awkward design on a targa. Second, Pagani says the vehicle was crafted for Refined Marques, a British supercar dealer known for selling Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Bugatti models, among products from other brands.

That being said, this could very well be a bespoke Huayra that’s either based on the BC or built to a new configuration. The fact that the standard Huayra is already sold out makes a good case for this scenario. Then there’s the roof scoop, which is a novelty for the Huayra and an element Pagani previously offered on track-only supercars such as the Zonda R. That’s not to say Horacio is necessarily working on a race-ready Huayra, but whatever this is, it should sit atop the Huayra BC in terms of power and aerodynamics.

All we can do for now is wait for more details, but the massive amount of carbon-fiber and the “transparent” blue shown in the teaser suggest that something really exciting is on the way.


PostHeaderIcon Purple Pagani Huayra Spotted in Stuttgart

Purple Pagani Huayra-0

While the world continues to drool all over the new Huayra BC with its massive wings and unsightly stripes, we want to have another look at the original in these superb photos of a Purple Pagani Huayra, spotted the other day in Stuttgart. This car looks its best clutter free.

And by clutter we mean excessively big aero parts, silly stripes, or ridiculously shiny paint works. As you can see here with this Purple Pagani Huayra, a simple, elegant, and unique paint finish is all you need to make your hyper car look even more stupefyingly beautiful. The simplicity here results in more elegance, whereas the wings and stripes of the BC – and we’re sorry for laying this truth on you – makes you look like a dork – a rich dork, but a dork nonetheless.

Sport Auto Pagani Huayra BC

Christian Gebhardt of Sport Auto magazine was among the first journalists who got to drive the new Pagani Huayra BC prior to its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Now that the car’s gone official, he can release the footage he’s filmed from his experience, delivering a good look at the BC inside and out, and giving us a taste of the car’s soundtrack and performance.

So here’s Pagani Huayra BC taking on some of the nicest mountain roads in Northern Italy in an exuberant manner. If God wants people to believe there is a heaven, he should make a promotional clip for it featuring this exact location and that exact car.

As I’m sure you know by know, Pagani Huayra BC is a limited edition, track-focused version of the Huayra hyper car designed and built in honor of Pagani’s friend, Benny Caiola. The main highlights of the car include a massive new aero kit, new wheels and tires, uprated brakes and suspension, new paint schemes with exclusive stripe designs, and most importantly, an upgraded, 750 horsepower V12 engine mated to a brand-new AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) designed mainly for lightness.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra BC Looks Great on the Show Floor

Pagani Huayra BC-floor

Automotive photographers of Sellerie’Cimes have managed to gain early access to the Geneva Motor Show and watch the cars come in and find their place on the show floor. One of the cars they have filmed during this escapade is the new Pagani Huayra BC, and boy does it look good up close.

This is a bit embarrassing actually, because when the Pagani Huayra BC was first revealed we sort of criticized it for looking just a bit weird, what with the extended aero parts and the not-so-cool stripe. Now that we’ve seen thing up close and under the beautifying lights of the Geneva show, we take that back. The BC is freakin’ sick!

Dedicated to Benny Caiola, a person who has greatly inspired Horacio Pagani over the years, Pagani Huayra BC is a track-focused version of the hyper car with lighter weight, more power, and a tighter chassis. The car uses motorsport-derived suspension brakes, and boasts a completely new AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) employed mainly for lightness. The engine is the same V12 Bi-Turbo as in the standard Huayra, but here it’s upgraded to 750 horsepower. Wheels and tires, ESP system, and the interior are also revised in this limited edition, $2.5 million model.

Pagani Huayra BC-vid

So a few days after its online debut, we get to have an up close look at the new Pagani Huayra BC as it hits Mount Etna during the first press preview event. The track-focused, 800 horsepower Huayra is not much of a looker, tell you the truth, but it is more of a driver’s car than its regular sibling.

In this video you get a good look at the new aero kit on Pagani Huayra BC as well as its new wheels and stripe. What’s more, you get to hear the roar of the car’s revised V12 twin-turbo engine which is very cool. We are going to have to wait a bit longer for a full test drive.

And just recap what’s new about the Pagani Huayra BC, the car is named after Benny Caiola, a person who has greatly inspired Horacio Pagani over the years. What a way to prove your friendship, huh? The BC boasts motorsport-derived chassis and suspension and a new AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) which is 40 percent lighter than a dual-clutch. As mentioned, the revised engine makes close to 800 hp now thanks mainly to a new sport exhaust system. So it’s a good thing the BC is fitted with tighter suspension, better brakes, modified ESP, new wheels and tires, and most importantly a massive aero kit.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa Damaged in Miami Accident

Pagani La Monza Lisa-Crash-0

Yep, it happens to million dollar hyper cars, too. The magnificent Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa, which is hands down the classiest version of Huayra anywhere in the world, has been involved in an accident in Miami Beach in which it lost a tire and suffered damage to its body panels.

The crash, reportedly, was the fault of an Uber driver who side swiped the Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa as it was going down the highway with its owner Kris Singh behind the wheel. As mentioned, the Pagani lost a rear wheel along with its suspension components, and suffered minor body panel damage.

Mind you, minor damage when your body panels are made from the most exquisite kind of carbon fiber known to man is still quite massive. Repairing these panels is a specialist job which has to be done at the factory, and it’s going to be hugely expensive. We’re glad we don’t own the insurance company who has to pay the bill on this!

Luckily though, it was a light crash and nobody was hurt. And Lisa is far from a wreck. We’ll probably see it back on the streets of Miami in no time.

The long awaited Pagani Huayra BC goes official as the Argentinian/Italian automaker releases the first pictures and details of the new hyper car. It’s not a track car. It’s not open-top. It’s a Huayra with an ugly body kit and around seventy extra horses under the bonnet.

Pagani Huayra BC (Benny Caiola) boasts a new aerodynamic kit which not only enhances the way it cuts through the air and generates tons of downforce, it also contributes to the 123 kg weight saving the BC benefits form compared to the normal Huayra since it’s made from a special type of carbon fiber. The car comes with lightweight APP wheels and titanium exhausts, plus lightweight suspension parts.

As for the powertarin, the BC has the same 6.0-liter V12 bi turbo as the regular model, but here it’s tuned to develop 789 horsepower which is very nearly 800, or 70 more than what you get from the standard version. The engine is hooked to a new Xtrac seven-speed automated manual transmission which is lighter and faster and results in better performance. So in a way, Pagani Huayra BC could be considered the track version of the existing model.

If you don’t like they way Pagani Huayra BC looks… well, it doesn’t really matter because you can’t get one anyway. The production is apparently limited to 20 units and all of them have been pre-sold for 2.3 million EUR apiece.

Although it’s been around since 2012, the Pagani Huayra has yet to spawn more than a few special-edition versions. But, now that all 100 units of the supercar have been sold, the Italian carmaker is working on new iterations of the model — two of which will be the Huayra Roadster and a more hardcore version of the coupe. While the former is still a mystery, the latter has surfaced the Interwebz in a teaser image revealed on the automaker’s Facebook page in December 2015. After two months of rumors and teasing, Pagani has finally unveiled the Huayra BC, the most powerful and track-focused Huayra built to date.

Fitted with an uprated V-12 powerplant, a new transmission, revised aerodynamics, and a race-inspired interior, the Huayra BC was named after Benny Caiola, one of the first Pagani customers, as well as a good friend of Horacio. So, while the Zonda F was dedicated to Formula One ace Juan Manuel Fangio, the Huayra BC was developed in honor of Caiola, who owned several Zondas, including a Zonda F, which was regularly driven by Horacio himself.

The Huayra BC is set to make its global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, where we will find out more about pricing and availability. Word has it that only 20 units will be built and that all of them have already been sold.

Updated 05/10/2016: Pagani and Bosch contribute in developing a new video which highlights the driving safety and braking control systems used on the Huayra BC. Hit “Play” to watch the car testing in the extreme conditions of the Arctic Circle.

Although we were expecting to see the Pagani Huayra BC in its full glory at some track event or private viewing party, the first undisguised pictures of the new hyper car comes from a ski resort in Mount Etna, Italy. It was either doing some high-altitude winter testing, or the driver was just using it as his vacation car.

The most interesting part is that this Pagani Huayra BC was photographed by a regular guy who was just enjoying the scenery and thought the car would look cool in the gallery he posted on Facebook of Mount Etna. In other words, all the big spy photographers missed the first sighting of what is one of the biggest super car debuts of this year.

Pagani Huayra BC Spotted-1

Pagani Huayra BC is a hard-core version of the Huayra designed primarily for track work. Set for debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the BC comes with a revised body work featuring a huge spoiler at the back and a new front splitter with extra flaps. The car is definitely lighter than the Huayra and almost certainly has more power as well, we just don’t know how much more at this moment.

Pagani Huayra BC Spotted-2

Hopefully the two-tone carbon and beige paint job on this car is just a prototype color and not something they are going to feature on the production version, because it’s hideous. We will be hearing more about the BC in the run up to its debut in Geneva, so stay tuned.
