Pagani C9 Teased Again: to Be Called Deus Venti? [Video]

Pagani has just released the second teaser video in a five-part installment, before officially revealing its new supercar at the Geneva Auto Show in March.

Initially believed to be called the Huayra (a word that means ‘wind’ in the South American dialect of Quechua), the newest name being tossed around is Deus Venti. This likely won’t be the final name either, but it is a good one, meaning “God of the Winds” in Latin.

The video gives us a glimpse inside the Zonda successor, with an absolutely stunning interior made up of only the highest grade materials.

No other details have been confirmed, but the car is believed to do away with the old naturally aspirated AMG engine, in favor of a newer AMG twin-turbo V12, making 690-hp and over 700 ft-lbs of torque.

Spied: Pagani C9 Caught Testing in South Africa

Thanks to a citizen journalist, or should we say citizen spy photographer, we now have several images of Pagani’s upcoming Zonda replacement, the C9. These photos of the car were shot by an Autoblog reader who passed by the transport rig parked on the side of the highway in near the airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. Most likely this isn’t a very accurate idea of what the C9 will look like and it appears as though this test mule is using a modified Zonda body to cover up the important parts underneath.
