While I was interviewing Horacio Pagani he offered me a go in his very own Zonda. Who was I to say no to not only more face time with the man himself, but a go in the ride he chose to keep?
To be allowed to drive a Zonda is an amazing privilege. To be handed the keys to Horacio Pagani's own private Zonda is simply ridiculous. Yet, that's what the XCAR team got to do.
In an exclusive interview, we talk to Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili and the man who dreamed up the awesome Huayra and Zonda. We find out what it takes to build a supercar company from the ground up.
We met up with the legend that is Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili and creator of the Zonda and the Huayra. We spoke to him about his youth, how he got started in the supercar industry and how it feels to be taking on the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Pagani may not have the heritage of Ferrari or Lamborghini, but the Huayra cements its reputation as one of the greats. We went to Italy and took Pagani's latest out to experience a true hypercar.
At more than $1 million, the Huayra doesn't come cheap, but we're guessing Pagani will have no shortage of customers if this thing delivers on its performance promises.
We've got to doff our caps to Pagani. The Italian sports car company has grabbed the awesomeness knob with both hands and cranked it all the way up to 'amazeballs' with its new Huayra.
A rare sighting: the Pagani Zonda C12S in a web video.
Amid the countless games and rows of hardware at E3, new and custom cars studded the halls and lobbies of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Some were for sale, some were for giving away, and some could be downloaded into your games.
The Pagani Huayra PT4 (Prototype 4) will be a testing mule for the new special editions of the Huayra.
