Pagani Automobili S.p.A. is an Italian Supercar manufacturer. The company was founded in 1993 by Horacio Pagani, and is based in San
Cesario sul Panaro, near Modena, Italy.The philosophy driving the company embraces a concept borrowed from the Renaissance. It is embodied by the great Leonardo da Vinci over 500 years ago, when he stated: “Art and Science were disciplines that must walk together hand in hand.”
In 1999 at the Geneva Motorshow Pagani Automobili rocked the automotive world with the unveiling of the Pagani Zonda. Acclaimed as an instant classic, the Zonda models went on to win numerous awards and find themselves in the elite group of supercars appreciating in value as time passes.
Along side road going Zondas and part of development for future models, Pagani created an uncompromising track version in 2010, the Zonda R. A statement of what was technically possible at the time, the Zonda R lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 6:47 min, a time yet to be beaten by production derived track cars.
In 2011 Pagani Automobili presented Horacio’s latest creation, the Pagani Huayra. The turbocharged V12 powering the Huayra is a bespoke AMG development for Pagani, boasting 730 hp and more than 1000 Nm of Torque. Building objects as complex and full of state-of-the-art solutions such as the carbon-titanium composite found in the Huayra’s chassis, not only takes brilliant minds, but real artist.
