Now this is a rare treat folks; a 11-minute monologue by Horacio Pagani himself about the history of the brand he’s created. It, of course, all begins with Pagani’s youth when he would help his father with his cars, then moved into him building a dune buggy, then onto developing his own open-wheel competition car.
From there, the rest was history, as he took on the lowest-level job in Lamborghini’s body shop, and became part of a team that the automaker challenged to build a composite chassis. From this came the Countach Evoluzione, which was simply a test car that was later purposely crashed to test the safety of this new composite frame.
This amazing story just keeps on going, and gets more interesting every minute. It is so amazing how well Mr. Pagani can outline his life with such accuracy and detail, and keep my attention despite having to read the English translation below. Honestly, though, car is a universal language, so half the time I grasped the concept just from his emotion and the video.
Simply an amazing video featuring one of the true rags-to-riches stories of the supercar world.
