SEVEN YEARS TO CREATE A UNIQUE SUPERCAR
The beautiful Pagani Huayra is considered, by experts and collectors, one of the world’s most sought-after supercars.
Possibly the most well-known creature of the Italian manufacturer Pagani –appreciated worldwide for its exclusive supercars as well as for the unique carbon fibre components it produces – the Pagani Huayra has been created by both skilled engineers and craftsmen. Its conception process has taken seven long years. This mid-engined sports car can reach a maximum speed of 230 mph (370 km/h).
It represents, above all, the exquisite embodiment of Horacio Pagani’s dreams, the daring and passionate Modena’s company founder.
“Dreams and passion are nowadays’ energy. Since my Argentinean childhood, I used to dream about Italy, the country where the world’s most beautiful cars are created. This vivid dream has allowed me to consider obstacles always as challenges that simply have to be mastered,” Horacio Pagani recently explained.
A ONE-OFF MODEL CREATED WITH LAPO ELKANN
Pagani wanted to offer even more to its enthusiastic and faithful supporters and clients all around the world. Therefore, the Italian company has recently unveiled a one-off Huayra called “Lampo”…an audacious name which means “lightning” in Italian .
Even though this superb new hyper-car is not powered by a gas turbine, it boasts the famous Fiat Turbina’s legendary white and red “uniform” (this concept car was originally produced by the Italian car manufacturer Fiat in 1954).
Behind such a brilliant endeavor and cooperation, stands one of Fiat’s heirs, Lapo Elkann, who is today the creative director of Garage Italia Customs, the entrepreneur’s bespoke design agency.
A futuristic beauty made with the very best that Italy offers in terms of materials, engineering products and state-of-the-art components for the automobile industry.
The car’s marvelously crafted carbon-fibre bodywork is endowed with impeccable Brembo carbon ceramic discs with ‘lightning’ finishing and, in order to evoke the famous Fiat Turbina, gold was used to adorn parts of aluminum around the car and on the wheels.
The supercar’s interiors are matchless. Carbon-fibre elements have been used for the chassis. Moreover, hand-braided brown leather and anodized aluminum elements embellish the interior cabin of this engineering marvel.
