Le Mans Inspired Hypercar
Pagani Huayra Codalunga

Pagani, being established in 1992, may have less of a history than other Italian supercar manufacturers but that doesn’t affect its ability to create incredible hand-built vehicles. On top of that, the Pagani Grandi Complicazioni is a division of the company dedicated to special projects and is responsible for the incredible Huayra Codalunga seen here.

The bespoke Huayra Codalunga was born from the joint vision of two Pagani collectors and the company’s founder and chief designer Horacio Pagani. The initial brief was straightforward — a long-tail version of the Pagani Huayra Coupé that is elegantly beautiful and able to attack both open roads and concours events in equal measure. While the direction was clear from day one, it took the team two years to perfect the styling concept. The automaker drew inspiration from the 1960s Le Mans race cars with long tails, and focused on simplifying the existing Huayra Coupé to channel that inspiration.

Weighing just 1,280 kg, the Huayra Codalunga is extremely aero efficient and features a carbon fibre body with active aero pieces. Under the elongated rear engine cover is the Pagani 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 that can generate 840 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque. The interior is equally lush, with hand polished aluminium components and seats finished in woven leather and nubuck.

Pagani will produce five tailor-made examples of Huayra Codalunga with prices starting at €7 million, yet of course, all examples were sold before the hypercar was even announced.
