Well before the Pagani Utopia pictured here, Horacio Pagani started Pagani Automobili S.p.A. as Modena Design, an automotive consultancy firm...
Pagani is an Italian sports car and fiber components manufacturer founded by Horacio Pagani in 1992. The company is known for only producing a limited number of supercars with sleek exterior styling, elegant cockpit appointments, and enough horsepower to tear up the track.
The first Pagani model, Zonda, is powered by a mid-mounted DOHC V12 engine manufactured by the Mercedes-Benz AMG division. The sleek exterior was inspired by jet fighters and the famous Sauber-Mercedes Silver Arrow Group C cars.
The successor to the Zonda was the Huayra, a 720 horsepower hypercar that goes from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds.
