Pagani Utopia breaks cover with just 99 units set to be manufactured
The road-going version of the C10 Concept, which is the newest product from Pagani, has been made public. The third Pagani, dubbed Utopia, came after the Huayra and Zonda and is miles ahead of both in terms of performance and aerodynamics.
The Pagani Utopia can only be described as a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 with no hybrid or electric interference in a custom chassis encased in what looks to be art that should live in a glass case forever. 852PS and 1,100Nm of torque are produced by the twin-turbo V12 with a 120-degree angle that is derived from AMG.
When you realize that these numbers are conveyed to the rear wheels and the rear wheels only, everything makes much more sense. Even more unique when you learn that Pagani is providing both a standard seven-speed single-clutch automatic gearbox and a seven-speed manual gearbox.
It is obvious that the design features were influenced by 1950s-era items. Retro-modern in style, Utopia conceals every cutting-edge aerodynamic feature. The monocoque chassis is made of chrome-steel subframes with Pagani Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax under the skin. The body itself uses a sophisticated kind of carbon fibre. Explains how Pagani managed to keep the Utopia's weight down to 1280kg.
The double-wishbone suspension, which takes its design cues from the Huayra R, is likewise made of aerospace-grade aluminium alloy in the hypercar. These stunning wheels are made of APP's monolithic aluminium alloy and are covered in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.
Additionally curiously different from what we are accustomed to is the cabin. There isn't a huge exhibit the size of a mini-theatre here. As an alternative, you get standard dials, a gorgeous flat-bottom steering wheel, and an interior that appears to belong in the 1980s. Additionally, the cluster has two analogue dials that are separated by a tiny screen that displays important information.
It is disappointing that Pagani will only produce 99 examples of the Utopia, or one vehicle every week. The hypercar is initially only available with an automatic transmission; a manual one will be added later.
