Pagani Automobili is delighted to present the latest bespoke creation from Horacio Pagani: the Huayra Codalunga, a limited edition of just five vehicles, produced in close collaboration with clients. Beneath the elegant and sinuous shape lies state-of-the-art Pagani mechanical engineering. Approved for road use all over the world, the price of this new hypercar starts from € 7 million. In 2018, two Pagani collectors asked Horacio to produce a long-tail version of the Pagani Huayra Coupé, with the idea of creating an elegant hypercar with a clean and streamlined design, a model which would feel at home on the roads as well as on display at international Concours events. The clients, who had been actively involved in the development of the project, liaised directly with Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, the re-branded Special Projects division, that focuses on creating one-offs and few-offs vehicles. A collaborative project, bringing together many hearts and minds…
“There are virtually infinite possibilities for designing and customizing these vehicles. Each project is the culmination of a long and thorough journey, working with the client to interpret their preferences and desires, with a shared ambition and combined effort from everyone to create a work of art befitting the Pagani name. A cross-functional team has supported the project meticulously from creation through design and development, to help us realize our clients’ vision,” Lorenzo Kerkoc – Head of Pagani Grandi Complicazioni said.
“A client is not someone who only buys from you once. A real client comes back again and again,” Horacio Pagani, Founder & Chief Designer, Pagani Automobili said.
Even though the project is limited to just five units, significant resources have been deployed to create a hypercar that would comply with global regulatory requirements and be fully certified. It took two years of working closely with the client to finalize the styling concept. Two models were built, one at 1:4 scale and the other full size, used for the latest considerations with clients and last refinements before starting production of all necessary components. In line with the Pagani philosophy, the Huayra Codalunga was designed down to the smallest detail in accordance with the creative principles of the great polymath Leonardo da Vinci, an inexhaustible source of inspiration, according to which Art and Science can exist in perfect harmony. The coachbuilders of the ’60s were inspired by aircraft designs and, in a relentless quest for speed and low drag, created some of the most iconic shapes in the automotive history. At the time, large body panels created by hand in aluminum alloy were the result. Today, Pagani uses its know-how in advanced composite materials to create a bodywork that follows this inspiration.
The rear engine cover, which has a footprint of more than 3.7 m2, and is 360 mm longer than the one of the Huayra Coupé, conceals a mechanical prodigy: the Pagani V12, which, on this series, is capable of developing 840 HP with 1,100 Nm of torque. The work “to take away rather than add” resulted in a record weight of just 1,280 kg (2,822 lb) and extremely high aerodynamic efficiency, helped by the car’s shape and extra length. The four flaps with variable profiles represent the very latest in active aerodynamics, a feature which had its world preview in 2011 and which has been subsequently refined with each model. The lack of rear grilles makes space for an unobstructed view of the Codalunga’s exhaust system, which is made from titanium and weighs only 4.4 kg (9.7 lb). The special ceramic coating completes the homage to the racing cars of Le Mans and the symphony that emanates from the signature four tailpipes is a tribute to automotive passion.
