Super- and Hypercars have been without a manual transmission for many years. That was until a visionary decided to bring it back and inspire others to do so. Horacio Pagani is one such person who’s been inspired as he’s announced that his next creation will sport three pedals.
Pagani has made his name building some of the most intricate and beautifully crafted hypercars of all time. Soon, he will add the distinction of being a rare automaker to offer a manual transmission in cars costing in excess of $2 million.
The inspiration came from a certain Gordon Murray, of McLaren F1 fame, who’s recently launched his own manual-transmission car, the T.50. About this decision, Carscoops reports that Pagani said: “Look at Gordon Murray’s T.50: it sold out even though it only has 650 hp,” he said. “It is very light, has a manual gearbox and a V12 that runs very high. You don’t need 2,000 hp to excite the driver.”
The new Pagani car, codenamed C10, will be powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo AMG V12 engine that will be available with either a sequential gearbox or a manual transmission. According to the story, the C10’s will not be about outright performance. The focus will be on driving pleasure and one path that will be used to achieve this will be cutting down on weight.
No more than 300 examples of the production C10 will be built in 2022.
