Pagani’s Third Act of The Huayra : The Pagani Utopia

Pagani, the Italian automaker, has unveiled its all-new Utopia hypercar. The third model from the company will be restricted to 99 units and will replace the Huayra while maintaining the brand’s focus on aerodynamics.

The Utopia, which has been in development for six years, has a softer appearance than the fierce Huayra. The Utopia features a small nose makeover and does away with the aerodynamic flaps on the bonnet that were present on the Huayra. The fluid design continues down the sides concludes at the rear, where the distinctive rocket-style quad exhaust and the fixed bridge spoiler that unites the two rear wings are featured.

The Utopia is still powered by an enhanced version of Mercedes-6.0-litre AMG’s twin-turbocharged V12 engine, which produces 864hp and 1,100Nm. In contrast to the Huayra, which had a 7-speed, single-clutch automatic transmission, the Utopia has a lighter 7-speed manual transmission with a gated shift system. Pagani, on the other hand, is offering a 7-speed, single clutch automatic transmission as an option to improve usability.

The Utopia is equipped with Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes, which are housed within the 21-inch forged wheels at the front and 22-inch alloys at the rear. The Pagani Utopia weighs 1,278kg and is designed around a monocoque chassis with a mix of carbon and titanium body panels, making it 72kg lighter than the Huayra.

The interior of the the Utopia retains many of the Huayra’s design cues, such as the dual circular instrument gauges and four round AC vents on the dash. Pagani, on the other hand, has dropped the Huyara’s central touchscreen in favour of a larger digital driver’s display between the speedometer and rev counter.
