Pagani Built Five $7.3-Million Huayra Codalungas and They're Sold Out

Pagani, the Italian luxury hypercar manufacturer, announced that it has built an even lower-volume, retro-inspired version of its Huayra hypercar.

Dubbed the Huayra Codalunga, the car's design takes a page from '60s Le Mans race cars and Italian coachbuilders of old. The company's Pagani Grandi Complicazioni special projects division and a few choice clients collaborated on the design process.

Those clients, two Pagani collectors, asked the designers for this concept in 2018.

"There are virtually infinite possibilities for designing and customizing these vehicles," the division's chief Lorenzo Kerkoc said in a press release. "Each project is the culmination of a long and thorough journey, working with the client to interpret their preferences and desires, with a shared ambition and combined effort from everyone to create a work of art befitting the Pagani name."

The biggest change is the long, aerodynamic tail, which is 14.2 inches longer than the regular Huayra. Three tail lights are mounted in a curved position on each side, while the titanium quad exhaust setup is pointed upwards.

In the front, dual headlights dot each edge of the fascia. The rearview mirrors are placed in front of the windshield instead of on the doors, which open upwards in the classic gullwing style. Semi-matte or fully matte colors were used to bring focus to the car's simple design, the company said.

Pirelli P-Zero Corsa 265/30 R20 tires are featured on the front 20-inch wheels, while the rear 21-inch wheels sit on 355/25 R21s.

"The Huayra Codalunga comprises very few essential elements; we have taken away rather than added," company founder and namesake Horacio Pagani said in a press release. "Simplifying is not at all straightforward, and this vehicle is, above all, the result of a complex pursuit of simple ideas."

The company pursued a "less is more" mentality when building the cars, which resulted in a curb weight of just 2,822 pounds. That's lighter than the base Huayra and most cars on the road today.

A twin-turbocharged V12 engine, used in other Paganis, makes another appearance here, along with a seven-speed single-clutch transmission with paddle shifters and an automatic mode. That setup puts out 840 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.

The interior is less restrained than the body, with brown leather seats featuring a checkered pattern and splitting at the legs. Blue body color and brown trim accent several points in the cabin.

Only five Huayara Codalungas will be built for about $7.3 million each. All five are spoken for, with one of them coming to the U.S.

The 2020 Pagani Huayra, all 40 examples of them, started at $3.4 million.
