Meet the "L’Ultimo" - The Final Production Model of the Pagani Huayra All Dressed Up in Hamilton-Inspired Livery
This is is for the Pagani Huayra Coupeby Kirby, on
Six years after production of the Pagani Huayra started, the Italian supercar is all set to say goodbye with a final production model. Fittingly, the last-ever coupe version is saying adios with a bang, specifically in the form of a special edition model, called “L’Ultimo.” Like most special edition Paganis, the Huayra L’Ultimo is a one-off bespoke project that carries its own unique identity. In this case, the Huayra L’Ultimo pays homage to Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One race car.
This unique model was ordered by Brett David, CEO of Prestige Imports, one of the most prominent exotic car dealerships in the U.S.
I’ve stopped counting the number of special edition Pagani Huayras that have been released. I know that there’s a significant number of them, including recent creations like the Pearl, Americana, Tempesta, and Riviera. All these Huayras are one-off builds, created for an individual with enough money to pay for all the unique bells and whistles.
It’s the same story with the Huayra L’Ultimo. This unique model was ordered by Brett David, CEO of Prestige Imports, one of the most prominent exotic car dealerships in the U.S. For a man who actually has his own share of high-priced exotics, David wanted a Huayra to add to his collection. He didn’t want just any Huayra, though. He wanted the last production model. And so, he reached out to Pagani and asked the automaker to build him this extraordinary masterpiece, inspired by no less than the Formula One race car driven by reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton.
The theme continues inside where turquoise was used on the dashboard, door trim, and even the floor mats.
On the surface, you can see, clear as day, the nods to Hamilton’s Mercedes W07 race car. The bare carbon fiber body features silver and turquoise painted sections, two of the main colors of the Mercedes Formula One racing team. Turquoise accents can also be found on the wheels while yellow accents on the roof and the yellow brake calipers complete the visual nod to the car that won the 2017 Formula One world championship. The theme continues inside where turquoise was used on the dashboard, door trim, and even the floor mats. The shift knob and the gauge bezels get splashes of yellow treatment while the seats are dressed in fine white leather.
In addition to the visual cues taken from Hamilton’s F1 car, the Huayra L’Ultimo also received a number of aerodynamic bits, including a Huayra BC-style rear wing, a roof scoop, and a larger diffuser compared to the one found on the standard Huayra.
The car takes its power from the same AMG-sourced 6.0-liter, biturbo, V-12 engine powering all other Huayras. It’s unclear how much power this one-off build has, but the output should sit somewhere between 740 and 790 horsepower, depending on the version of the Huayra that was used. If it’s the Huayra BC, it should have almost 800 ponies on tap.
As far as one-off Huayra creations go, the L’Ultimo is a fitting send-off to one of the world’s most incredible exotic cars from this decade
We don’t know how much Brett David spent on bringing the Huayra L’Ultimo to life. What we do know is that the car is expected to be delivered in June 2018 where it will sit in Pagani’s Miami dealership for an undisclosed time before David presumably takes it home with him. As far as one-off Huayra creations go, the L’Ultimo is a fitting send-off to one of the world’s most incredible exotic cars from this decade.
