The Pagani Huayra has been with us for over ten years now, meaning it requires replacement.
Pagani was very unhappy after the images of the Huayra successor were leaked online in January this year. However, now the prototype has been spotted out on the streets of Italy.
As noted from the previously leaked images, the replacement for the Pagani Huayra looks like an advancement of its predecessor. The test car has a familiar rear fascia with the iconic quad exhausts in the centre. The three circular taillights have been replaced with twin rear lights.
The Huayra successor was expected to feature a retro-modern look. The front winglets have been replaced with a simpler front end.
The engine, the Huayra R’s specially-developed 6.0-litre V12, will not be going into the C10; it is more likely a new version of the 6.0-litre twin-turbo V-12 sourced from AMG, with the option of a manual or dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The power output is between 850 and 880hp, and the C10 will not be hybridised. Horatio Pagani has reported that the platform for the C10 will be capable of supporting a fully electric powertrain.
There have been various reports regarding the production numbers of the C10, original estimates were 280 cars in various guises, but it seems most likely to be capped at 99 units.
As to delivery, the first anticipated launch was quarter three, 2022, but now deliveries are expected to commence in 2023.
Pagani C10 is considered a code name. Watch this space for future updates.
