Pagani has unveiled the dearly coveted Huayra Codalunga, and it’s going to set you back $7.4M (or more).
But realistically, it won’t set you back anything – because there are only 5 units total, and they’re all spoken for.
Heartbroken? So are we – but we can’t help ourselves, and we know you can’t help yourself: so here are the stats for the most beautiful car none of us will ever own.
They’re being called an homage to the coachbuilders and race cars of the 1960’s, and you can tell why at a glance.
The car’s retro-futuristic style inspires a sense of longing for nostalgic days gone by, but lights that fire of innovation and adventure with touches here and there that speak of the future and tomorrow’s explorations.
Horacio Pagani himself had this to say about the car’s sleek design, per PistonHeads, “We made the Huayra Codalunga longer and smoother, as if it had been caressed and moulded by the wind… We drew inspiration from the long tails of the 1960s that raced at Le Mans, which had very clean lines. The Huayra Codalunga comprises very few essential elements; we have taken away rather than added. Simplifying is not at all straightforward, and this vehicle is, above all, the result of a complex pursuit of simple ideas.”
With its conical rear lights and growling nose (and lack of rear spoiler), you could set the Codalunga on the track in the ‘60’s and it wouldn’t look out of place, but the interior tells a different story.
Luxury – Like Only Pagani Can Deliver
One look at the interior and the drooling starts. Each vehicle was custom built for its owner (the 5 luckiest people on the planet, perhaps), but demo images show a caramel brown exterior with light crosshatch leather on the seats, silver accents, a honeycomb shift stick and soft blue accent lighting.
And under the hood, the car boasts a similarly futuristic round of features, per Motor Trend; “When all said and done, the Codalunga tips the scales at just 2,822 lbs. Propelling it down the straights to the nearest Italian coffee shop is the ever impressive Pagani 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V-12 producing 829 hp at 5,900 rpm and 809 lb-ft of torque from 2,000-5,600 rpm. It’s backed by an Xtrac seven-speed sequential transmission for true, racecar inspired performance.”
We know – it hurts to look at this purring perfection and not be able to buy it, but we think the world is better because the Codalunga is in it, even if it’s just a dream for most of us.
