Pagani works on smaller model
Horacio Pagani, founder of the Argentinian exclusive sports car brand, has announced that the company has plans for a lighter model. It is a possible V8 model set to be unveiled in 2015. Pagani plans to build around 400-500 units, each carrying a price tag of € 500,000 (around $625,000 at the current exchange rates).
However, the company’s full attention right now is focusing on the future C9 supercar that is set to be revealed at the end of September at this year’s Paris Auto Show. The C9 will feature a redesigned rear diffuser featuring twin instead of quad exhausts, a brand new air intake behind the clear engine cover, and a bluff front nose section. Under the hood there will be an AMG sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 producing around 700bhp and 1000Nm of torque. This will sprint the car from from 0 to 62mph in less than three seconds and on to a top speed of more than 220mph.
Unlike its predecessor, the C9 will also be sold on the American market.
