It is perhaps the most exotic car maker of them all, and now you can tour the facilities of Pagani Automobili from the comfort of your seat.
Supercars are the pinnacle of automotive engineering. In general terms they’re the most technically advanced and capable machines found on the open road or closed circuit. Without question the Pagani Zonda Revolucion is one of the most impressive.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the world’s largest motoring garden party, and this year, the event celebrates its 20th anniversary. So what bettery way to celebrate than with 20 awesome photos of 20 amazing cars?
Italian supercar maker Pagani has released a new mystery teaser, which is probably showing off the new Zonda R Evolution.
Like supercars? Then do we have a treat for you.
Pagani doesn’t have a new model or a new engine on display at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Rather, the Italian supercar maker used the opportunity to showcase a new Sonus Faber sound system for the exotic (and hard to pronounce) Huayra.
A mystery teaser was recently released by Italian supercar maker Pagani, and a new follow-up video has now been released revealing that the brand is teaming up with Sonus Faber sound systems.
Supercar maker Pagani has released a new cryptic teaser clip that asks, “can you decipher the clues?”
10. Honda Odyssey
I want a Lotus 2-Eleven, a Ferrari 599XX, an Evora GTE and I’ve always wanted a Range Rover too. Sadly, even the garage in my dream world has rules and picking just 10 cars to fill it is as hard as choosing my favorite child. As a result, each of my Top 10 dream cars serves a special purpose, and none are quite so purposeful as a Honda Odyssey.
On a list you’d expect to find Lambos and Bugattis, mine starts with a minivan. Still, it’s the Bugatti of minivans, and with a $44,000 price tag the Touring Elite model is definitely more first class than coach.
And before you doubt my sanity, understand, I have kids.
It’s got more toys than any other and features that plenty of luxury cars would be jealous of. You say your $300,000 luxury limo has self-closing doors, a fridge and a TV in the back? So does the Odyssey. And you can watch two movies at the same time!
I thought about filling this spot with a Range Rover, but really, if you’ve got two little ones in booster seats like I do, the only thing that makes parenting easier than sliding doors is having grandparents to watch your kids.
When was the last time a car’s braking performance made headlines? Or when a vehicle’s defining feature was listed as its ability to come to a stop in a hurry?
The new Pagani Huayra continues the brand’s unique design language from its insect feeler-like mirrors to the unmistakeable afterburner-style exhaust.
The video featured below is packed with details perfect for car geeks. It dives into detail about the production process, telling you about the complex materials that the Huayra is made up of, and the important safety of the fuel-tank (It cuts off fuel as soon as it detects a collision), among many other tech-heavy details.
If mechanical specifics aren’t your thing, you can just look at the borderline car-porn of the fully finished product and the sheet-metal underneath it. You also get plenty of wonderful motor sounds as the Huayra zips around the track. Click the jump to see for yourself.
Horacio Pagani has never built a boring car in his life, starting as the designer of Lamborghinis and moving on to create his own over-the-top super car company, Pagani.
A biography has been released by Pagani, celebrating the life and times of its founder, and showcasing his youth and how he came to be the creator of some amazing cars.
Born in 1955 in Argentina, Horacio Pagani had only early European car magazines for influence as a young boy. The man also idolized Leonardi Da Vinci and tried to replicate Da Vinci’s idea that art and science can be married into one practice.
At a young age, Pagani was already designing cars that had futuristic looks, and eventually went on to get his first work in the industry at Lamborghini.
Watch the first video in the series here.
Ever wonder what it takes to build one of the world’s finest Italian exotic automobiles? Pagani has decided to share a documentary showcasing how its Huayra was born, and how it’s built.
We’ve seen a lot of automotive-related videos in our time, and this may just be the finest 15 minutes you can ever spend on an online video. Pagani really needs no introduction, being one of the few automakers that have created a formidable opponent to Italian rivals Ferrari and Lamborghini. There are no automotive enthusiasts in the world who haven’t heard of the Pagani Zonda, and now its successor, the Huayra, will be capturing our attention for years to come.
Watch the documentary after the break.
If you like supercars, then you’ll love the Geneva Motor Show. It’s a venue for niche automakers like Pagani and Koenigsegg to display their latest products, plus each year in Geneva the two best known exotic Italian automakers, Lamborghini and Ferrari, reveal their latest models.
For a look at these, plus all kinds of wild machines you’ve probably never heard of, watch the video below:
Having recently unveiled the successor to the beautiful Zonda, the catfish-faced Huayra, Pagani used the Swiss venue to debut a carbon edition of that very car. Coated in an exposed and high-gloss carbon fiber body, it’s an outrageous machine and is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo AMG V12 making 700 hp and over 700 lb-ft of torque.

If you had twelve children every year, would you love them all the same? It might be hard to keep track, but as is true with any parent, seeing one of your babies hurt would be tragic.
While it’s a bit much to think of cars as children, and some people do, the Pagani Zonda is a rarity in the luxury supercar market because the company only produced one every month starting in 1999 and stopped production last year. That is enough to tug on enthusiast heart strings and evoke a passionate response when one of these rare birds gets its wings clipped.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what seems to have happened in Hong Kong. Pictures started floating around a forum, showcasing a wrecked Zonda in the middle of an intersection. There aren’t many other details to report on the wreck, but it’s clear from the picture that the car was on a tight city street. You can see that the driver hit a pole, but beyond that it’s tough to speculate on the incident. Click here to see the forum for yourself.

10. Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000
The list of the Top 10 most expensive new cars is even more shocking that you might expect. Released by Forbes, you can forget the Ferrari 458 or the $300,000 Lamborghini Aventador because even at the low end of the scale these models start at right around the one million mark.
In 10th place, at $845,000 is Porsche’s upcoming flagship, the 918 Spyder. When it does arrive later this year, it will come powered by a high-revving V8 engine making more than 500 hp, mated to a plug-in hybrid system that adds over 218 hp. Porsche claims a 0-60 mph time of 3.1 seconds, with an incredible 78 mpg rating.
