Long-tail, streamlined bodywork for custom Huayra
Pagani spent years working on the car with some very special customers
The longtail Codalunga started in 2018 when a pair of Pagani collectors asked Horacio Pagani for a longtail Huayra. They wanted what Pagani calls “an elegant hypercar with a clean and streamlined design.” One that would feel more at home on the road and not just on display at fancy car events.
After two years of working with those customers then spending 10 months finishing the design and construction, Pagani is ready to build the Codalunga for road use.
Just five will be built, with prices starting from 7 million euros before tax. That’s about $7.4m US or $9.5m Canadian.
The Codalunga will be road-legal in all markets, Pagani says, and that includes North America. Now that production of the stunner has started, the company expects all of them to be done and delivered by next spring.
The long bodywork houses Pagani’s signature V12. In this spec, it will generate 840 hp. The new bodywork will also show off the ceramic-coated titanium exhaust system that weighs just 9.7 lbs.
We don’t ever expect to see one, but we do hope that the shape might make it into Forza or Gran Turismo, giving us a chance to at least pretend to drive one in anger.
