PostHeaderIcon Top 10 Most Blasphemous Models To Turn Into An EV

The world of EVs is ever growing, and as we near a time when there will be no gas to fill our tanks, we realized some of the world’s best-sounding and glorious engines will have to be ditched in favor of electric power. Think of an electric Camaro, Mustang, Corvette, or Lamborghini… does it sound good? Or rather, does it make any sound at all?

With the advent of electrification in the business of car building, you see every major manufacturer scramble to put together a lineup of eco-friendly electric vehicles as a statement of their forward-thinking plans and their bias towards the future of mobility. It all looked foolish almost 20 years ago when Honda introduced the original hybrid Insight, which was shortly followed by Toyota’s Prius, but today, this seems to be the trend that will sell. For some, it might be a marketing ploy to appease a new section of the market, but you can’t dismiss the trend altogether.

Audi just took the wraps off its first fully-electric car, the E-Tron. Mercedes was doing the same just a few weeks ago with its EQC, and just about any manufacturer you can think of has a mid- to long-term plan for at least hybrid, if not electric. For instance, Aston-Martin is looking forward to the year 2030, by which time the British manufacturer’s stable should be made up exclusively of electric cars. Ferrari, well-known for their devotion to making their cars sound perfect, is planning a 60 percent hybridization of its lineup in just four year’s time. You can imagine a Ferrari EV isn’t that far off in the future, then.

All this got us thinking – which cars would you never want to see without a growling V-8, or maybe a high-revving V-12 under the hood? Which car’s move from gas to electric sounds like blasphemy to you? We know there is a Mustang-inspired sports utility vehicle coming from Ford in 2020, and the pony car itself might go electric in the future, so how does that make you feel?

Read on to learn about our top 10 cars that would be blasphemous to turn into EVs.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon

Pagani dropped a surprise at “The Quail — A Motorsport Gathering” event over the weekend when it unveiled the latest special edition Huayra Roadster, called the Gyrfalcon. Named after the White Gyrfalcon, the largest of all falcon species, the Huayra Roadster lives up to its namesake with a color scheme that matches the majestic colors of the bird of prey. The Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon is a one-off model, and there’s a good chance that it already has an owner.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Another Look at the Pagani Huayra L’Ultimo

The final Pagani Huayra just arrived stateside, and car fans are drooling over its custom body and interior treatment. Dubbed the L’Ultimo edition, the Pagani is currently on display at Prestige Imports in Miami, Florida, and exotics fan/YouTube personality Mario Vergel decided to check it out for himself. This is what he found.

The video is 6 minutes, 33 seconds in length, and includes shots of several other supercars and sports cars, including the Porsche GT3, Mercedes-AMG GT4, LaFerrari, Bugatti Veyron, Porsche 918 Spyder, and of course, Vergel’s BMW M3. However, if you just wanna jump straight to the Pagani, skip ahead to the 4-minute, 39-second mark.

The video gives us a glimpse off the Italian monster in full HD as it spins on its pedestal, showing the goods from just about every angle.

For those of you who may be unaware, the L’Ultimo is an extremely limited edition of the supercar – in fact, it’s a one-off model that was custom built for one lucky Pagani customer. Continue reading to learn more about it.

PostHeaderIcon This Is The Final Pagani Huayra, Probably

If you know Pagani, you know that their cars don’t really have an expiration date in terms of production. They might officially go out of production, but the company will make more if orders keep coming in. They are still making Zondas, and that’s obviously a good thing. So while they are saying this one is the final Pagani Huayra hardtop, it most likely isn’t.

Even if it were, there is still the BC and the Roadster, and maybe some other new variant. So if you are a Huayra fan, do not despair. The alleged final Pagani Huayra is a super special one, being built for the eccentric CEO of Prestige Imports of Miami, the official representative of the Italian brand in America. The big shot has gone for a F1-inspired design for this one-off Huayra, borrowing design cues from Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes race car.

The car is christened Il Ultimo, reflecting the fact that it is the last of its kind. It’s great, then, that it has such a unique look. The reflective silver is a sight to behold, and the green and yellow accents complement it nicely. This Pagani Huayra also comes with a bunch of extras borrowed from other variants, such as a fixed rear wing, extended front lip, and a roof scoop. The interior is dominated by white leather seats and plenty of Hamilton green trims and accents.



The Il Ultimo Pagani Huayra is said to be a standard car in terms of powertrain, meaning it has the 720 horsepower AMG twin-turbo V12 you find in other Huayras. Pretty soon this engine will have to be retired, because Pagani has some big plans to remain competitive in the age of hybrid and electric hypercars.

PostHeaderIcon All Pagani Huayra BC And Huayra Roadster in America Are Being Recalled

Recalls happen all the time in the auto industry. What’s rare is when the automaker that’s doing the recall is a niche Italian supercar brand that’s known more for building some of the most gorgeous cars on the planet. But alas, strange things happen in this strange business, which is why, of all auto brands in the world, Pagani is recalling all 2017 MY Huayra BC and Huayra Roadster supercars in the U.S. All 16 of them.

PostHeaderIcon Because Supercars Aren’t Enough, Pagani Just Invented Its Own Fabric

Pagani is known as an Italian automaker that’s responsible for giving us the Zonda and Huayra supercars. Now, it’s taking its influence to a new level with what’s called the Pagani Fabric, a new and innovative material that was created through a combination of technical fabric and high elastic modulus carbon fiber components. In other words, it’s a sophisticated material that Pagani plans to use as the soft top roof of the Huayra Roadster.


Because Supercars Aren't Enough, Pagani Just Invented Its Own Fabric - image 773121
“The two brands wanted to create an innovative and sophisticated soft top roof that can be used on the Huayra Roadster.”

The creation of this new material didn’t just happen overnight for Pagani. It worked tirelessly at it, and it even had help from Italian motorcycle protective gear company, Dainese. Together, the two brands wanted to create an innovative and sophisticated soft top roof that can be used on the Huayra Roadster.

The process of creating didn’t come easy either, something Pagani founder Horacio Pagani explained in a press release. “Creating the reserve soft top for the Huayra Roadster was a real technical challenge,” Pagani said. “Our goal was to provide customers with a folding roof solution, one that takes up minimal space when stored in the car. The soft top was conceived as a lightweight, resistant tenso-structure, in which every single element contributes to carrying out the overall function through tension.”


Because Supercars Aren't Enough, Pagani Just Invented Its Own Fabric - image 773125
“The result of the collaboration between Pagani and Dainese is a fabric that has predetermined folding areas that allow the fabric to follow the folds of the structure when the roof is closed”

The result of the collaboration between Pagani and Dainese is a fabric that has predetermined folding areas that allow the fabric to follow the folds of the structure when the roof is closed. According to Pagani, this material not only ensures minimal storage space but, more importantly, it’s durable enough that the fabric won’t suffer from any wear and tear over a long period of time.

For now, Pagani plans to use the material on the Huayra Roadster, which made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last year. It’s fitting, then, that the automaker is returning to Geneva this year to showcase the fabric on a Huayra Roadster. Moving forward, Pagani plans to use the Fabric on future open-top supercars that it builds. Considering how many one-off models it also builds for specific customers all over the world, don’t be surprised if the fabric starts popping up often.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Working on Electric Hypercar, Manual Huayra

Startling news from Northern Italy, where in the workshops of Pagani Automobili some truly astonishing things are afoot. According to words ascribed directly to big boss Horacio Pagani, the hypercar maker is in the process of developing its first electric model. they are also working on a new version of the Huayra with a manual gearbox. 

So Horacio is simultaneously swimming with and against the tide of automotive trends. On the one hand he is planning an EV to ensure his company will remain relevant in the future – even though nobody really expects Pagani to become a green car maker – and on the other hand he is going back to the good old days of shifting gears with a stick. This way he will cover both ends of the market and pleases both the old and the new school. The man’s not only an artist, but also a brilliant strategist.

The electric Pagani will be a car in the same class as the likes of Rimac Concept One: a sexy, ultra-expensive, limited edition EV hypercar with mind-boggling speed and faith-shattering beauty. Thankfully, Horacio has dismissed the possibility of an autonomous Pagani out of hand, referring to the cars he makes as ‘toys’ the owners look forward to drive. That is so true. It is still unclear though who will be the supplier of electric powertrains for this new model.

As for the manual Huayra, this model will actually be the replacement for the Hauyra, and it will continue to use internal combustion engines and not a hybrid or electric system. The current AMG V12 twin-turbo will likely be the engine in the new model, and it will be offered with a choice of both automated manual and fully manual transmissions. Now, both of these models are in the early stages of development and it will be a while before we hear anything concrete about them.

PostHeaderIcon The Gift That Keeps On Giving: A New One-Off Pagani Zonda Is On The Horizon

One-Off Pagani Zonda Created For TopCar Customer

Just when you thought it was safe to assume that the Pagani Zonda will now get to rest in peace, those assumptions are once again getting thrown out of whack because a new one-off Zonda is about to be unveiled. At this point, thinking of the Zonda as a departed model has turned into a futile exercise. It’ll always be around for as long as there’s someone out there willing to pay for an opportunity to get one. That seems to be the case with this new one-off Zonda, which comes to us by way of Pagani and Russian tuner TopCar.

Judging by the visible presence of TopCar’s shark logo in the photos, this particular one-off Zonda appears to be some sort of collaboration between the Italian automaker and the Russian tuning company that’s known in the new world for some racy exotic tunes in the past. The full details on the nature of the build have yet to be revealed, but the project itself has been billed as an “original car,” suggesting, it seems, that this particular Zonda is a new model and not a reconfiguration of an existing model like the three other one-off Zondas that have already made their debuts this year. Regardless of its roots, this new one-off Zonda will live up to the legacy of its one-off predecessors as a bonafide head-turner. It already looks the part of a legitimate one-off, and at this point, the only thing it needs now is a fancy nickname.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

What do we know about this new one-off Pagani Zonda?

  • Body has exposed carbon fiber with a unique shade of blue
  • Gold trim and wheels create a contrast and adds to the tri-color trim
  • Gold wheels round out the exterior package
  • Some custom work by TopCar – A first for a Pagani Zonda
  • Interior gets carbon fiber, leather, and wood trim

The Gift That Keeps On Giving: A New One-Off Pagani Zonda Is On The Horizon - image 743489

Apart from the nickname or whatever Pagani decides to call the color scheme, everything is pretty much on the table here, that is if these images paint an accurate picture of what we can expect.

From the looks of it, this Zonda example carries an exposed carbon fiber body that’s been dressed up in a specific shade of blue. Gold trim on the sides help to create a nice contrast to the overall look while the unmistakable tri-color trim representing Italy’s flag is likewise present throughout the car, including on the sides of the hood scoop and the sides of the rear wing. The prevalent use of carbon fiber on the body of the Zonda is a Pagani specialty, and this new one-off Zonda is no different. As a final touch, a new set of gold wheels has been added to the equation. While it’s not explicitly said, I suspect that these wheels and some of the aerodynamic components in the supercar – the rear wing, perhaps? – are some of TopCar’s contributions to this build. I may be wrong, but since this one-off Zonda was commissioned by a customer of the Russian tuner, I think that TopCar put in a few bits and pieces of its own to make this car stand out from the rest of its one-off counterparts.


The Gift That Keeps On Giving: A New One-Off Pagani Zonda Is On The Horizon - image 743487

Move inside, and the presence of carbon fiber is just as evident as parts of the dashboard and door panels were sculpted using the same lightweight material. A good amount of leather is also included in the mix, adding to the bespoke quality of the cabin. The same can be said for the wood trim, which we can see, plain as day, on the steering wheel, handbrake, and gear shifter. The quilted pattern on the while leather section of the seats and the blue formats provide a good amount of visual balance to the plain blue leather and the aesthetics of all that carbon fiber.

As stylish as the exterior and interior of this one-off Zonda are, the drivetrain is the one section that I’m most curious about. Normally, past one-offs didn’t come with any engine upgrades, so it was safe to assume that almost all of them carried stock drivetrain credentials. In this case, the Zonda looks to have been based on the Cinque variant of the supercar so the easy answer would be that it gets its heebie-jeebies from an AMG-coursed 7.3-liter V-12 engine that produces 670 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.


The Gift That Keeps On Giving: A New One-Off Pagani Zonda Is On The Horizon - image 743488

But here’s the thing: TopCar is somehow involved in this build, and we know from the tuner’s history that it has a long menu of engine upgrades available to a variety of exotic cars. Could it be possible then that this particular one-off Zonda has an engine tune? It’s a question that’s certainly worth asking given the players involved in the build. Is an Inferno kit in there? Maybe a Stinger? Whatever’s lurking inside the carbon fiber guts of this one-off Zonda, I definitely wouldn’t be surprised if TopCar’s fingerprints are all over it.

How does it compare to the three one-off Pagani Zondas we’ve already seen this year?

2017 has been an eventful year for the one-off Zonda craze. We’re almost halfway to November, and we’ve already seen four one-offs make their debuts this year.

Back in July, Pagani pulled the covers on not one, but two one-off Zondas, all in the space of a few days. The first of these two one-offs made its debut sporting a red carbon fiber body with matching black accents and a prominent tri-color trim. It was called the Zonda Fantasma Evo, and it received a new front fascia with the LED daytime running lights of the Zonda Tricolore. Four new carbon fiber canards were also installed, same with a large Zonda Cinque-inspired carbon fiber roof scoop, an auspicious rear wing, and a central carbon fiber fin. As definitive as these upgrades are, the defining feature of the Zonda Fantasma Evo is its history, which dates all the way back to 2005 when it first came alive as a Zonda F. It received numerous upgrades over the course of its life, and has had multiple owners in that span of time. Now it looks better than ever.


2017 Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo - image 724538

Note: photo of the Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo

Barely a week after the Zonda Fantasma Evo surfaced, another one-off Zonda burst into the scene, this time wearing the “Riviera” monicker. That model was based on the Zonda F and received its nickname because of the inspiration it placed on the French Riviera. While it remains a Zonda F at heart, the Zonda Riviera received its one-off status after getting dressed up in a white carbon fiber body with matching blue accents on the hood and side profile of the supercar. It also received a good amount of aerodynamic carbon fiber bits, particularly a new roof scoop and a much larger rear wing than the stock version that came with the Zonda F. The front canards were also upgraded while more carbon fiber pieces appear around the headlights. All that said, the cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades given to the Zonda Riviera didn’t equate to any engine upgrades. As such, the one-off Zonda still features a 7.3-liter V-12 engine that packs 600 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque.


2017 Pagani Zonda Riviera - image 725281

Note: photo of the Pagani Zonda Riviera

Exactly a month after the Pagani Zonda Riviera was unveiled, the Italian automaker showcased a doozy of a Zonda. It was billed the Zonda HP Barchetta, and it was built exclusively for the man behind the company, Horacio Pagani himself. It’s fitting, then, that of all the exclusive Zondas ever created, the HP Barchetta stands out for a number of reasons. For one, it comes with a cropped windshield, a feature that no other Zonda has. It also gets its fair share of carbon fiber accessories, including the front canards and rear wing. A central scoop was also added, and for good measure, the model’s set of wheels comes in different designs and colors: silver on the left and blue on the right. That’s only a small sampling on the legitimacy of the super exclusive Zonda HP Barchetta.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the 2018 Pagani Huayra BC Blast Around A Racetrack

Pagani has a rich history over its relatively short lifespan. When the Zonda debuted in 1999, it sent shockwaves up Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, and everybody else’s spine. Now nearly 20 years later, the Huayra is the darling of this small Italian automaker. But some say the Huayra needed more soul.

Enter: the Huayra BC – a car so sharpened beyond the original that Motor Trend’s new host, Jethro Bovingdon, suggests its basically a new product. The BC’s body is made from titanium-reinforced carbon fiber, a material that’s not only stronger but lighter, helping the car shed 291 pounds. The BC only tips the scales at 2,685 pounds. And then there’s the engine. The AMG-sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 makes 60 more horsepower for a total 753 at 6,200 rpm and 811 pound-feet of torque at only 1,000 rpm! The power is managed by a revised seven-speed, auto-clutch manual transaxle hanging off the mid-mounted engine. Naturally, power is sent only to the rear wheels as God and Pagani intended.

Well, Bovingdon is no stranger to driving high-horsepower missiles around a track, so his commentary on the BC is rather telling. The video is an incredibly fun and educational watch, especially since it’s filmed inside Pagani’s headquarters and assembly room in San Cesario sul Panaro, Italy, just outside Modena. And don’t forget to check out TopSpeed’s coverage of the Pagani Zonda, Huayra, and Huayra BC.

Say Hello to the Pagani Huayra Americano

From the automaker that has turned one-off creations into something of a business in of itself, Pagani is back at it again with yet another exclusive creation. It’s called the Pagani Huayra Americano, and it’s actually here in the U.S., specifically at Pagani’s own dealership in Newport Beach, California. Even better; it’s actually for sale, though like most one-off Paganis, the price for this exclusive Huayra is on a need-to-know basis.

Pagani Newport didn’t disclose too many details about the Huayra Americana, saying only that it was delivered in the latter half of 2016 and only has 488 miles on its odometer. It’s also stock #0019 and carries the VIN ZFGK58739Kl09300L. There’s no price tag on the car, but that’s to be expected considering that this is a one-off model that underwent a lot of custom touches to validate its name. Regardless of what new digs are in the car, don’t expect it to come cheap. For one, those 488 miles are close enough to be considered new. Then there’s the prestige and exclusivity that comes with being an owner of a true one-off Pagani Huayra. All that considered, expect this car to fetch north of $2 million at the very least.

What makes the Pagani Huayra Americano special


2017 Pagani Huayra Americano - image 737187
“Expect this car to fetch north of $2 million at the very least.”

It’s special enough by virtue of its one-off status. Actually, “special” isn’t even the word I’d use to describe the Huayra Americano, or any of the other one-off Zondas and Huayras that Pagani has created over the years, for that matter.

I’ll stick with that one for now though because the Huayra Americano features plenty of new and exclusive features, beginning with an exterior that’s dressed up in a Grigio Clement body finish. That translates to a two-tone look made up of a silver body and black carbon fiber on the hood and roof of the car. Red striping can also be found on the carbon fiber, running from the tip of the Huayra’s nose all the way to the back, right on top of the quad exhaust tailpipes. Multi-spoke black wheels and red brake calipers complete the exterior styling of the Americano. It’s not the fanciest color scheme among all of the one-off Paganis we’ve seen, but it certainly captures your attention, especially when it’s all polished up like how it is in the photos.


2017 Pagani Huayra Americano - image 737186

2017 Pagani Huayra Americano - image 737189
“The seats are dressed in black and red leather while the abundance of carbon fiber takes a completely different meaning by how much the lightweight material is present throughout the interior”

Step inside of the car and the interior follows a similar color treatment. The seats are dressed in black and red leather while the abundance of carbon fiber takes a completely different meaning by how much the lightweight material is present throughout the interior. Likewise, the detailing on the center console is one of its defining qualities, specifically the black and red leather surround that helps add plenty of styling depth to this particular area of the interior. Last, but certainly not least, is the presence of a plaque on the firewall section of the cabin, indicating that this particular Huayra is actually model number 68 out of the 100 of its kind that Pagani built.

Overall, it’s a solid creation from Pagani, though it’s probably not my favorite among the one-off creations that Pagani has created. I took my time choosing which one tops my list, but in the end, I chose the Huayra Vulcan that the automaker launched back in December 2015.

Pagani Huayra Vulcan


2015 Pagani Huayra Project Vulcan - image 658925

It’s not just because of the name although, if I’m being honest, it did play a big part in giving this one-off Huayra an identity of its own. The supercar’s exterior is particularly revealing, especially the approach Pagani took in giving it the one-off look. Chief among these features is the use of black and silver gunmetal metallic exposed carbon-fiber, a first of its kind for the Pagani Huayra.

Meanwhile, the Huayra Vulcan’s interior is a picture of vividness. Most of the surfaces inside, including the steering wheel, carry the same shade of bright red as the wheels. The result is a fiery look to the interior that does justice to its Vulcan name. Remember, Vulcan isn’t a race of people in the Star Trek universe. It’s actually the name of the Roman god of fire. Seems like a car that Vulcan would want to be caught driving in, wouldn’t you think?

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.

Updated 08/23/2017: We added a series of images taken during the car’s auction at the 2017 Monterey Car Week where it was sold for
$2,420,000.

PostHeaderIcon Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta

As a company that has become no stranger to dazzling one-off creations, Pagani is back at it again with, well, another one-off Zonda masterpiece. This time, though, the Italian automaker didn’t build one for a deep-pocketed customer with far too much wealth for his own good. This ultra-exclusive Zonda, called the Zonda HP Barchetta, is for the man who launched Pagani in the first place, Horacio Pagani.

It’s been a long road for the Pagani Zonda to get to this point. It was launched all the way back in 1999 and while it was eventually replaced in 2011 by the Huayra, it’s remarkable run has continued in the form of one one-off model after another, including recent introductions like the Fantasma Evo and the Riviera. The HP Barchetta follows in this tradition and while it is technically a “three-off” – three models will be built – its place secure as one of the most unique Zondas in Pagani’s history. There’s a lot to the Zonda HP Barchetta that justifies its status as a different beast compared to its contemporaries, even by the completely exclusive standards that Pagani’s Uno-di-Uno division upholds. It adopts many of the unique styling features that previous exclusive Zondas had and adds to it with design elements that we’ve never seen from Pagani, be it on the Zonda or the Huayra. It’s fitting then that the HP Barchetta gets these “new” upgrades since these three models are likely to be the last Zondas to be created. I know that Pagani has towed that line numerous times in the past, but if it decided to finally send the Zonda to the shed, the Zonda HP Barchetta is a pretty good final send-off.

They say that fine art speaks incredible stories while sitting still as people look at them. In a lot of ways, the Pagani Zonda is the farthest thing from fine art, particularly that it doesn’t do well in an idle state. Then again, the Zonda is also, in other ways, the epitome of fine art. It’s limited nature and exotic qualities make it precious in a lot of eyes. And as far as the stories it tells, well, let’s just say they make for good conversations. Take this particular Zonda for example. It’s now called the Zonda Riviera, but it didn’t always carry the name. Once upon a time, it was a Zonda F, and in the decade that’s been alive, it’s been through quite a lot for a car of its stature.

It does seem a little odd that we’re seeing another Zonda get reimagined as a new model only a week after seeing another of its kind, the Zonda Fantasma Evo, go through the same treatment. These events do speak of the age of the model and the fact that it’s been 12 years since Pagani rolled out the Zonda F means that we’re likely to see more of them in the near future. For now, though, the Zonda Riviera takes center stage, as the Zonda Fantasma Evo did last week. it doesn’t quite have an eventful story as Fantasma Evo – that one literally came back from a crash – but it does have a tale or two in its pocket, as most Pagani Zonda Fs that have aged rather nicely will tell us.

If cars could tell stories and write books about their lives and what they’ve been through, this particular Pagani Zonda would have a New York Times best-seller on its hands. See, it may look like a brand-new Zonda that Pagani has kept under lock and key in Italy, but it’s actually far from new. Strip away the new body and what you get is a 12-year old car that originated as a Zonda F. True story.

Now it’s christened as the Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo and it looks resplendent in dark red carbon fiber. Even in its new guise, this car’s history is as rich as any Pagani model in history. It’s been through a crash that left it short of the scrap heap. It’s been sent back to Pagani for nips and tucks more times than even the owner can count. It’s changed names a handful of times, too, first as the Zonda F before being renamed the Zonda SH to account for the owner’s initials. From there, it became the Zonda Fantasma because it apparently has a nicer ring to it. And after the latest series of modifications, it’s added the “Evo” moniker, this officially making it the Zonda Fantasma Evo. Through it all though, one thing about the car that hasn’t changed: the AMG-sourced V-8. Twelve years after hitting the market, the Zonda Fantasma Evo still makes use of a naturally aspirated, 7.3-liter engine, though it now makes 100 more horsepower than its 660 factory tune. In a nutshell, the Zonda Fantasma Evo has become the living embodiment of the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

PostHeaderIcon New Pagani Huayra Variant Teased by Chief Test Driver

pagani-test-mule-1

Davide Testi, the buffed, tattooed, and extremely cool chief test driver for Pagani Automobili, has released a couple of photos of a new Pagani Huayra prototype with hashtags ‘new project’ and ‘my baby’. And that’s all the info currently available on this, well, baby. 

That said, the pictures Mr. Testi has published reveal a few crucial facts about the this new Pagani Huayra variant. The first thing you notice is the two big holes in the roof, from which one can stick one’s head out white reversing, as elegantly demonstrated by Davide. And the first thing you think of seeing these holes is, of course, Huayra Targa. That could be what this prototype is, a logical follow-up to the Roadster model, or it could all be a massive diversion.

The mysterious Pagani Huayra prototype shown to us here also features an unusually large bulge on its bonnet, something that makes the whole thing look weird and ungainly. But it’s well hidden under cover and may not even something with production significance. Still, it makes us thing whether this baby is the long-awaited hard-core Hauyra about which there used to be a lot of speculations. Of course, another possibility is that the car, which also features a new engine cover and no wing at this stage, could be a one-off, bespoke, coachbuilt Hauyra for some incredibly important person.

Guess we have to wait to find out. Stay tuned y’all!

Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante

You may have heard of Kris Singh, a Miami-based businessman with a penchant for super rare, super expensive cars. You may have seen his Lamborghini Veneno and Pagani Huayra La Monza Lisa. And if those things haven’t been enough to make you jealous, check out the man’s latest acquisition, the unique Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante.

This car is so special on so many different levels, one doesn’t know where to begin. For starters, it’s a Pagani Huayra which is the automotive equivalent of Faberge egg. Then we have that little ‘BC’ at the end of the name, which means it’s a limited edition – with only 20 units being produced – with unique features and design. Last but not least there is the Macchina Volante part which is what truly set this hyper machine apart. Meaning Flying Machine in Italian, the name is a tribute to one of Horacio Pagani’s heroes, Leonardo da Vinci who, as you know, was obsessed with machines and flight.

Mechanically, the black and blue Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante is a standard BC which means it packs a track-tuned engine and chassis with over 800 horsepower and a 7-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) plus an electronic differential. THe BC also comes with all new tripod axle drive shafts, derived from the world of Le Mans racing, suspension components forged from HiForg, a lightweight aeronautic aluminium alloy of exceptionally high strength, CCM (carbon-ceramic) braking system, and many other cool stuff.

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…
