Pagani has released a 15 minute short film about the concept and development of the new Pagani Huayra.
Horacio Pagani references Leonardo Da Vinci as a source of inspiration by stating, "Art and Science are two disciplines that must walk together, hand in hand. The spirit of the Italian Renaissance, applied in today's world, to create an object outside the common boundaries."
Due to the almost mythic reputation of the Pagani Zonda, it was clear from the start the next Pagani would not be a replacement of the Zonda, carrying over its race car character. Instead, a new breed had to be born from a new inspiration.
The concept of the new car was inspired by the fascination of flight, by the elments air and wind. "It was our goal to transform these somehwat intangible aspects into a material creation," continues Pagani.
The styling of the Pagani Huayra took place over the course of five years. Eight scale models and two full scale models highlight the changes made over the delicate research.
