Pagani Huayra Codalunga revealed, all five already sold

Pagani has revealed an ultra-exclusive longtail hypercar paying homage to race cars and coachbuilt cars of the 1960s.

If you have €7 million ($10.59 million) burning a hole in your pocket and want a Pagani Huayra Codalunga though, we have some bad news.

Just five examples will be produced, and they’ve all been sold.

It was created by Pagani’s special projects division, Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, in close collaboration with existing customers after two collectors asked the company in 2018 to produce a long-tail Huayra.

Pagani says it’s certified for road use all over the world, including the US where one of the five vehicles will be sent.

Under a 3.7m2 rear engine cover, 360mm longer than the one on the Huayra Coupe, sits a V12 engine which pumps out 626kW of power and 1100Nm of torque.

The Huayra Codalunga features active aerodynamics and a titanium exhaust system with ceramic coating, weighing just 4.4kg and featuring four prominent centrally-mounted outlets.

Overall, the hypercar weighs just 1280kg – roughly the same as a Subaru BRZ.

“We drew inspiration from the long tails of the 1960s that raced at Le Mans, which had very clean lines,” said CEO Horacio Pagani.

“The Huayra Codalunga comprises very few essential elements; we have taken away rather than added.”

The company notes the coachbuilt 1960s cars the Codalunga draws inspiration from were in turn inspired by aircraft designs.

Inside, Pagani says it used colours and materials that evoke cars of the 1960s.

The exterior paint carries through to elements of the cockpit, and exposed carbon-fibre is also used inside.

Neutral colours and semi-matte or fully matte paints have been used, aluminium components are machined from a single block, and the seats are finished in woven leather/nubuck upholstery.

The Codalunga is the latest version of the Huayra, first introduced in 2011.

It’s one of the lowest-volume variants of the mid-engined hypercar.

Pagani produced 100 examples of the original Huayra and 100 of the Roadster, followed by 30 BCs and 40 Roadster BCs.

Other variants comprise the R (30 units), Imola (6) and Tricolore (just 4).
