The Pagani Utopia was unveiled final fall because the successor to Huayra, and a brand new video offers us the chance to see Pagani’s newest hypercar in movement.
The quick video launched by Pagani reveals the Utopia wafting alongside nation roads and navigating slim European metropolis streets. No high-speed driving is proven, however you do get to admire the Utopia’s clear bodywork.
With the Utopia, Pagani aimed to reduce seen cooling ducts and aerodynamic aids with a purpose to preserve the outside as glossy as potential. A entrance splitter sends air into the ovoid opening on the entrance, the place it is then channeled across the sides of the automobile to lively flaps on the rear. Pagani has stated this association produces an optimum aerodynamic stability with out sensitivity to floor clearance for extra predictable dealing with traits.
The Utopia additionally carries ahead some styling options from the Huayra and Pagani’s first supercar, the Zonda. A cab-forward silhouette, quad headlights (in housings machined from stable aluminum), and centered quad exhaust suggestions give the Utopia a familial resemblance to the vehicles that got here earlier than it.
One other connection to earlier Paganis is the engine. Just like the Huayra and Zonda, the Utopia makes use of a Mercedes-Benz AMG V-12. On this case, it is a twin-turbo 6.0-liter engine that produces 852 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque, with a 6,700-rpm redline. Energy is shipped to the rear wheels by way of an Xtrac 7-speed automated-manual transmission, with a traditional handbook gearbox to be made out there at a later date. Pagani did contemplate electrical and hybrid powertrains, however has shelved them for now.
Pagani plans to construct 99 Utopia coupes at an undisclosed value, however that is doubtless simply the beginning. If Pagani follows the identical sample because the Zonda and Huayra, you’ll be able to count on a Utopia roadster and a number of other particular editions and hardcore monitor variations to comply with. For now, the Utopia coupe carries on the Pagani custom of gorgeous design and pure V-12 energy.
