Pagani last summer stunned the car world with a unique version of the long-tail Huayra, called CodalungaItalian for “long tail”.
The car was born at the request of two loyal customers looking for a Pagani with a streamlined design reminiscent of the epic race cars of the 1960s. The customers worked closely with the project department. The Italian brand’s special project, called Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, took a period of two years to arrive at the final design.
Pagani is committed to building five, each priced from 7 million euros ($7.6 million), and this week the second of five was on display. This one is bronze with an exposed carbon fiber tail strip.
The body of the Huayra Codalunga is made from lightweight composites, with the car’s elongated tail requiring an engine cover that extends 14.2 inches longer than the top cover. Standard Huayra. Meanwhile, power comes from the same twin-turbo 6.0-liter V-12 found in the Huayra, but with pumped power up to 827 hp compared to the Huayra’s 730 hp.

The Huayra Codalunga is officially the final version of the Huayra, though Pagani can continue to offer new Huayra creations just as the automaker did — and still does — for the Zonda, its first supercar.
Last September, Pagani revealed the successor to Huayra in the form of Utopia, another V-12 supercar. Pagani had at one time planned to offer an electric version of the car, although the automaker canceled that plan last year. with the reason of lack of demand and lack of emotion in electric cars.
