A priori it may seem like a strange car, but what Pagani wants to reflect is a tribute to the ‘Longtails’ 24 Hours of Le MansAs the McLaren F1 GTR Long Tail o el Porsche 917 LHcar with which in 1971 Vic Elford He was the first to overcome the barrier of 240 km/h on average in the gala race.
The curiosity is that the Huayra Codalunga born as an idea of two client collectors of Pagani, that is, it arises as a wish of the clientele, who in 2018 asked the designer from Casilda for a long-tail version of the Huayra.
It is a car developed by the special projects division Grand Complications from Pagani and its name is a nod to the world of high-end watchmaking.
In terms of measurements, it has a central motor that is based on a 840 horsepower 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12, along with 1100 Nm of maximum torque. It also has an exhaust set formed with titanium and ceramic coating, weighing 4.4 kilos.
Pagani says no to electric cars
A peculiarity of the famous car designer is that opposes the manufacture of electric cars and even backed down on a project that aimed to create a super sports car.
“In four years we never found interest in the supercar market”affirmed the santafesino in an interview granted to the medium Autocar.
“Right now, the 90% of energy is produced without renewables. It is foolish to think that only a few supercars in the world with internal combustion engines can have a negative impact on the climate when 90% of the energy is produced in a bad way”, he pointed out.
