The Italian luxury hypercar manufacturer, Pagani, recently revealed its third hypercar which will be the replacement for the previous Huayra model: The new 2023 Pagani Utopia. This old-school masterwork has a completely new structure built on three targets set by the owner of Pagani Automobili, Horacio Pagani: “simplicity, lightness, and the pleasure of driving”. The hypercar is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s work and is presented in Milan, Italy, at the National Science & Technology Museum.
The Utopia is a true masterpiece for every car enthusiast. It is powered by a stunning 852 hp 6.0L V12 Mercedes-AMG engine and 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm) of torque from 2,800 to 5,900 rpm. The vehicle is only 2822 pounds, as a result of Pagani’s combining carbon fiber with titanium, meaning that it is 150 lbs lighter than the previous model Huayra. As for the transmission, both a manual and a single-clutch automatic is available. The car will be offered with 21-inch wheels at the front and 22 -inch at the rear wrapped with 265/35 and 325/30 Pirelli P-Zero Corsa, respectively. An interesting feature is the two windows on the roof and the old-school interior that except for a screen in the middle of the dashboard, is completely analog. The interior also features plenty of leather and aluminum pieces.
The engine will not be electrified, meaning no heavy batteries, or a dual-clutch automatic. Other details regarding the performance specs are still unknown. It is however expected that the specs will be impressive in every direction.
This is Pagani’s third vehicle since 1999. Only 99 units will be available to customers, at a price of around $2.5 million per vehicle. Every one of them will be built at Pagani’s manufacturing facility in Modena, Italy, at a rate of one unit per week. The model will be also available in the U.S., as it has full homologation. Deliveries will take place in Q2 of 2023 for those with automatic transmission, while the manuals will follow later on.
