last summer, Pagani Automobili unveiled a very unique long-tail version of their famous Huayra hypercar. It was named the Codalunga, which is Italian for “long tail.”
The car started as a request from two loyal customers who wanted a Pagani with a streamlined design reminiscent of the grand race cars of the 1960s. The customers worked closely with the Pagani Grandi Complicazioni special projects division for over two years to arrive at the final design. When word out got, other customers wanted in.
Pagani decided to build five examples, each priced from 7 million euros ($7.6 million USD), and this here is the second of the five car run. Codalunga #2 features a bronze hue with a tail stripe of exposed carbon fiber. It is more of a work of art than a car.
The body of the Huayra Codalunga is made from lightweight composites, with the car’s long tail requiring a stretched engine cover that’s over a foot longer than the cover on the standard Huayra. Power comes from the same AMG sourced twin-turbo 6.0-liter V-12 found in the Huayra, but the output has been bumped to 827 hp. The standard Huayra makes “only” 730 hp.
The Huayra Codalunga is officially the final version of the Huayra. However, Pagani will probably continue to offer new Huayra creations if customers are willing to pay for it. After all, they’re still making one-off Zondas, and each time, they kept saying it would be the last one. Until they make another one.
