Pagani Huayra Codalunga Launches Hypercar for a Selected Few at 7.4 Million USD
- 19th Jun 2022
Pagani Automobili introduces the Huayra Codalunga, a limited edition of only five automobiles built in close cooperation with customers. This new hypercar begins at € 7 million (roughly $7.4 million) and is approved for usage on public roads across the globe.
In 2018, two Pagani collectors requested that Horacio Pagani create a Pagani Huayra Coupé with a longer tail. The customers have been actively engaged in the project's development and have collaborated directly with Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, the rebranded Special Projects branch that specialises in the creation of one-off and limited-run automobiles. It took two years to develop the Huayra Codalunga's design idea. Two models, one at 1:4 scale and the other at full size, were constructed for the most recent client discussions.
Huayra Codalunga is longer and more refined than Huayra Coupé. The vehicle is an homage to the timeless shapes of the Italian coachbuilders and racecars of the 1960s, with clean lines and sinuous, graceful forms. Pagani used their expertise with sophisticated composite materials to produce a bodywork inspired by this design.
The rear engine cover is 360 mm longer than that of the Huayra Coupé, measuring more than 3,7 m2. The hypercar is powered by a Pagani V12 engine that, in this series, is capable of producing 840 horsepower and 1,100 Newton-meters of torque.
The Codalunga lacks rear grilles, allowing the exhaust system to be viewed. It is made of titanium and weighs just 4.4 kg (9.7 lb). The unique ceramic finish completes the homage to the Le Mans race vehicles.
The four variable-profile flaps represent the cutting edge of active aerodynamics.
On the new hypercar, Pagani utilises neutral hues and semi-mae or totally mae paints to emphasise the vehicle's minimalist design.
Inside, the seats are upholstered in woven leather/nubuck, and components are machined from a single block of metal.
