Is this the 2023 Pagani C10?
The entire production run is already sold out!by Alina Moore, on LISTEN 02:19
After 10 years on the market, seven different variants and more than a dozen of special editions, the Pagani Huayra is long overdue for a replacement. In a recent interview, Horacio Pagani confirmed that the company is indeed working on a replacement for the Huayra. It is codenamed C10 and should be unveiled sometime in the summer of 2022.
Now, it looks like we also have our first look on the upcoming C10, as a rendering, allegedly of the next hypercar, has surfaced online. The rendering is also accompanied by a picture of a letter for an application for reservation. Apparently, in order to reserve the C10 you had to pay €300,000 (or about $340,000 at the current exchange rates). Of course, you don’t have to worry about this anymore, as all the 280-300 units were already spoken for.
The rendering shows a car that combines design elements from older and newer cars. For example, the front grille is reminiscent of the Huayra, while the teardrop cabin shape reminds us of the Zonda. Also, the two small rear wings go even further back into the history and are inspired by the C12 S.
As for the engine, Pagani said that it will continue using purely combustion-powered vehicles until 2026. This means, the C10 will be powered by a new version of the Mercedes-AMG’s 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V-12. If previous rumors are true, the C10 should only deliver around 30-40 horsepower more than the current Huayra, which means the C10 should deliver around 820-830 horsepower. Horacio Pagani also confirmed that the company will mostly focus on weight-saving measures, which means the supercar should be a little bit faster than the current Huayra.
The C10 will be offered in both coupe and roadster versions, and like usual Pagani will offer a few special editions. But, as we already mentioned, all units were sold out. In fact, Pagani said that only the interest from the U.S. customers could have filled the entire production run.
