Pagani’s replacement for the Huayra supercar was discovered just a few months after its launch.
The new car is codenamed C10 (Huayra is C9), and it will be revealed sometime in mid-2022, with the unveiling taking place at the Leonardo da Vinci museum in Milan, Italy. Deliveries will begin in 2023.
No more than 300 will be produced, including coupe and convertible trims, as well as the regular special edition series and apparently all built versions already on sale, though it’s likely that some purchase is the preferred dealer of Pagani. For comparison, Pagani built around 280 Huayras over the course of the car’s decade-long run.
Our spy shots show that the C10 will have an evolved look, one that blends elements of both the Huayra and its own Zonda predecessor. What’s interesting is the extended flat area at the rear, which is expected to house some aerodynamic elements.
We know that there are two versions of the C10 in the works, one with a new 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 from Mercedes-Benz AMG and the other with an electric powertrain. The V-12 will be available with a choice of a manual transmission or a paddle shifter and it will remain globally compliant at least until 2026, after which hybrid technology is likely to be kept. original.
In the case of the electric powertrain, Pagani CEO and founder Horacio Pagani told Italy Quattroruote in a 2021 interview that his company could tap current supplier Mercedes for the technology. Another recently opened up possibility is the American electric vehicle start-up Lucid Motors. Lucid’s main shareholder is the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, a sovereign wealth fund that in 2021 purchased a 30% share of Pagani. We will remind you that Performance of Lucid’s Air Dream Edition The electric sedan has delivered performance comparable to one of Pagani’s supercars, thanks to its 1,111 hp.
Pagani in an interview on Quattroruote said that the C10’s peak power will remain at less than 900 horsepower regardless of what power the car is supplying. He says this is enough to keep the car fun without becoming overbearing. He said the Paganis isn’t about fastest acceleration or top speed, and all of his cars are speed-limited to 217 mph – not a single customer loves it. remove this limit. Pagani plans to focus on lightness instead, including an electric version.
As noted above, C10 is just a codename. Zonda took its name from a breeze of Pagani’s native Argentina. Meanwhile, the name Huayra is taken from the Argentinian God of Wind, Huayra Tata. Expect a continuation of this trend for the C10.
