Pagani Utopia Revealed As the Long-Waited “C10” Model

The Pagani Utopia has been revealed as the long-waited “C10” model from Pagani, and our initial thoughts lead us to thinking “Vintage”.

 

Looking at the Pagani Utopia, our minds go back to a vintage looking aircraft-inspired design. With obvious inspiration from the Huayra as well, the Utopia takes the Huayra base and goes retro. The Utopia was built with consultation from lots of Pagani owners that shared a unifying desire, that the upcoming model puts an emphasis on these three qualities:

  • Simplicity
  • Lightness
  • Driving Experience

 

 

The lightness aspect is taken care of thanks to Pagani’s Carbo-Titanium HP62 G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 combination of materials to create the monocoque. Both the front and rear subframes are made of chromoly steel assisting with and increasing stiffness by 38%. In total, the Pagani Utopia comes in at a mere 2822 lbs! Lightness goal achieved.

 

The driving experience aspect is taken care of thanks to Pagani’s choice of using their 825 horsepower and 811 lb-ft torque 6.0L Twin-Turbocharged V12 engine, hand built by Mercedes-AMG. Owners can either choose a true 7-speed manual transmission, with clutch, or a 7-speed automatic. With Koenigsegg’s new innovative manual transmission in the CC850 and the option for a true manual in the Utopia, the manual is staying alive! 21” front wheels and 22” rear wheels are accompanied by Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers. Driving Experience goal achieved.

 

 

 

Lastly, with the simplicity aspect, we’re going back in time. Inside we find an analog speedometer and tachometer, with only 1 digital screen in between the two and no infotainment screen in site. Looking at the mostly analog interior combined the “turbine” looks of the exterior, simplicity is achieved via a vintage design. Simplicity goal is achieved.

 

 

With only 99 coupes being offered, we expect roadsters coming soon, pricing comes in around the $2,500,000 mark. Which in fact is normal nowadays for the hypercar market, as weird as that may sound. We like the Pagani Utopia a lot and we appreciate the retro design, congratulations to Pagani for the unveiling and we hope to see one soon!
