Pagani Codalunga unveiled, a $7.4 million Longtail of the Huayra

The Huayra Codalunga is a longtail version of Pagani’s Huayra supercar. Pagani built it at the request of two clients, who collaborated with the company’s Grandi Complicazioni department, which specializes in one-of-a-kind and limited-run vehicles. Pagani only produced five examples of the new Huayra Codalunga, all of which have already been sold. Each one was priced at 7 million euros (about $7.million).

The car is modeled around 1960s longtail Le Mans racers. Pagani was approached by the two clients in 2018 about a longtail model, they worked with the firm for almost two years to develop the stylistic concept. Before beginning manufacturing, Pagani created one-quarter and full-size scale models to show the clients.

The Huayra Codalunga (Italian for “Longtail”) is the result. The automaker invested a lot of money into the project to make sure it met all of the global rules for a road car. The powertrain was decided on a powerful V12 engine with 840 horsepower (617 kilowatts) and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Newton-meters) of torque hidden beneath the huge rear engine cover.

The Pagani’s rear grille is intentionally missing to reveal the lightweight 9.7-pound (4.4 kilograms) ceramic-coated titanium exhaust system. The Huayra Codalunga’s body is built of lightweight composites to keep the weight down. The car’s enlarged tail necessitates a stretched engine cover that is 14.17 inches longer than the standard Huayra’s. Despite its longer body, the Codalunga’s dry weight of 2,822 pounds is around 154 pounds less than the standard model.

Performance details were not mentioned, however, a 0-60 mph time of under 3.0 seconds and a top speed approaching 220 mph is likely, given the similar specifications of other Huayra models.
