PAGANI UNVEILS HUAYRA EPITOME THE ULTIMATE V12 HYPERCAR

Pagani Automobili has unveiled the new Huayra Epitome, a customized unique piece of work from the Grandi Complicazioni division..


It is an extraordinary demonstration of Pagani’s commitment to taking Hypercars to new levels of prestige, innovation, and customization. This one-off represents the pinnacle of Pagani’s current technology available for road-legal cars, in a bespoke vehicle tailored down to the smallest detail.


Created exclusively as a one-off for a client who wanted to create a unique example that would take the Huayra to its highest expression, with this in mind the car could aonly be named ‘Epitome’, as the most essential embodiment of a concept.


The beating heart of the new Huayra Epitome is the Pagani V12 engine, capable of delivering 864 HP (635 kW) at 6,000 rpm at 18°C (64°F), with a torque of 1,100 Nm. Built by AMG according to Pagani specifications, this 5,980 cc twin turbocharger engine features a distribution system that extends the limiter to 6,700 rpm, offering an exhilarating and dynamic performance.


To date, the Epitome is the first and only Huayra equipped with a manual transmission, for a pure mechanical driving experience. Thanks to an electronically controlled differential and a racing-style tri-pod driveshaft, the Pagani by Xtrac seven-speed transverse gearbox allows all the power and exceptional responsiveness of the engine to be transferred to the road. The flywheel-clutch unit consists of the latest triple-disc clutch for better torque transmission, with an electronically managed differential and a racing-derived tripod joint system ensuring greater engine responsiveness.



Technological research also focused on the suspension, with geometry that reduces dive in acceleration, pitch in braking, and roll in corners. This allows the driver to tackle corners by braking at the last moment, improving vehicle control and safety. Pagani Automobili aims to emphasize driving comfort as one of the most important pursuits in the study and evolution of all its cars, including track cars. Thanks to the new active suspension system of the Huayra Epitome, a “super soft” button is located in the cabin on the central tunnel, to be activated when driving on rough roads for extra comfort. Above 150 km/h (93 mph), the shock absorber setting returns to its normal condition, depending on the driving mode selected.

A clean and elegant design defines the Huayra Epitome, standing out with custom-made elements to meet the demands of tailoring that mark Grandi Complicazioni projects. The all-new front and rear bumper shapes, the front hood with exclusive light clusters and a new wheel arch air extraction system, and the rear hood with oversized side conveyors and integrated wing are just some of the features that make this one-off a timeless piece of design and engineering. The front end features a new bumper with an integrated splitter, designed at the customer’s request to increase downforce and balance the car in all driving conditions, accelerating airflow to the inner radiator ducts.



The wider mouth allows more airflow to the new inner ducts, optimizing aerodynamics and improving the efficiency of the front radiators. The light units are also exclusive: the Huayra Epitome is the only Pagani one-off to feature four light units installed on the front hood and two DRL elements installed on the bumper, a choice that ensures the exclusivity of the car while enhancing the purity of forms and improving lighting efficiency. The rear has been completely redesigned following the requests from the client, who wanted a hood with an integrated wing, a synthesis of Art and Science: a design that not only improves performance but also elevates aesthetics while maintaining the distinctive elegance of the Huayra.



The wing supports organically develop from the side muscles of the hood, creating a unique sculptural element. Thus, all forms give continuity to the car’s lines, as if sculpted by the wind. The new aerodynamic profile of the wing, designed according to the Huayra R’s studies, aims to optimally balance the car in any driving condition. A new aerodynamic cover for the rear lights has also been designed to reduce airflow resistance, extending the laminar boundary layer over the hood and giving an aggressive and unique look to the car’s rear.
