It’s been more than a year since the Pagani Huayra Roadster was released and now we’re getting our first glimpse at the Huayra BC Roadster – the lighter, more powerful, go-faster version of the Huayra with unlimited headroom. These are the first spy shots we’ve had the pleasure of seeing and we don’t think that’s it’s quite ready for production yet. Keep reading to see more shots and learn a little more about it.
Prior to Pagani officially unveiling the Zonda R Evolution to the public at the ongoing Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the U.K, GHPixx managed to capture the Evo at what’s sure to be its new home in the coming months, the Nordschleife.
Shot on the June 26th, very few car aficionados would have been able to identify the car as the Zonda R Evolution, as our good friend Marchettino already falsely claimed to capture the Evo a couple of weeks ago.
Nevertheless, this is a mighty spot and in addition to the Zonda R Evo doing the rounds at the ‘Ring, a Pagani Huayra was also seen shadowing the Zonda R Evolution, suggesting that the Italian company may be planning to run both cars around ‘Green hell’ with record lap times in mind in the coming days and weeks.
Sounding just as incredible as the ‘standard’ Zonda R, the Evolution variant is said to produce 760BHP, although some sites have claimed output to be as high as 800HP from its modified 6.0-liter AMG-sourced V12 engine. Whichever it is, the Evolution is unquestionably faster than its predecessor and should eclipse the R’s record-setting Nurburgring lap time captured a couple of years ago.
Pagani’s future C9 supercar has been caught testing again, and this time, the spy shots are extremely clear. Replacing the current Zonda, the C9 will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Pagani announced it will produce a number of 40 units a year, and that the C9 will carry a price tag of approx. $1,250,000.
The C9 will be powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine, that delivers around 700bhp and more than 730lb ft of torque. The engine will send its power to the road through a seven-speed sequential set-up, sourced from British transmission specialist X-trac.
The Pagani will be distinguished by side-mounted air intakes, Enzo-like scallops in the bonnet, gullwing doors, and, of course, an ultra-expensive, ultra-lightweight carbon-titanium chassis. This will help the C9 tip the scales at just 1230kg.
The good news doesn’t stop there, folks! The C9 will be homologated for sale in the United States. So, start saving!
Pagani’s new beast on wheels, codenamed the ‘C9’, was recently spotted by Autogespot doing some air brake testing at a German highway, giving us yet another glimpse of the superduper car that is widely expected to succeed the brand’s omniscient beast, the Zonda.
We’ve come to learn that Pagani has been testing the air brake system on the C9 and if the company decides to use the technology on the supercar, it would make the C9 the third supercar to do so after the Bugatti Veyron and the Mercedes-Benz SLR. Given the insane speeds the C9 is bound to pack, employing an air brake system on this rocket ought to be a good idea.
The new Pagani supercar will be powered by an AMG sourced 6.0-liter V12 engine that will produce a total of 690 horsepower and 737 lb/ft of torque. The company’s founder, Horacio Pagani, has also announced that the C9 will carry a completely new look in terms of its design, weight, distribution, materials, and dynamics.
A few months after those gut-wrenching photos of a crashed Pagani C9 brought us all close to tears, we’re delighted to tell you that the new C9 is once again up and running and out on the road to continue to do more testing after its unceremonious break.
This photo was sent over by a Dutch fellow that was traveling along the Brenner Pass from Italy to Austria when he, much to his surprise, caught a real-life C9 blazing along the same road. In his haste to snap a photo, he was only able to catch one photo of the new prototype C9. While we’d be thrilled to have seen more than one photo, it’s still one more than nothing.
Pagani hasn’t announced an unveiling date for the C9, but we’re all hopeful that it could come sometime later this year, possibly at the Paris Motor Show. In any case, we’re just glad to see Pagani’s new supercar back testing on the road after that ridiculous crash a few months ago.
After a Pagani C9 test mule crashed a few weeks ago, the car is now back on testing, and badder than ever. It seems the supercar will be ready for its world debut at Paris Auto Show. Sales will begin at the beginning of 2011.
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.
According to Horacio Pagani the new C9 will be "a completely new car from concept, weight distribution, materials and dynamics." So, we can hardly wait its official debut!
We don’t know if the Pagani C9 is just a photogenic little supercar, but it seems to have taken quite a liking to being photographed before its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
We already saw the first set of spy photos of the C9 getting filled up with gas but while those pictures still left a lot to the imagination, this new set captures the new Pagani supercar up close and in the flesh, leaving no doubt that this most definitely is the C9.
What’s more, in addition to looking at as clear a set of photos as we can find, these spy shots also has photos of the car’s interior and, much to our delight, its Mercedes SLS AMG-inspired gullwing doors.
Despite being the successor of the Zonda, the Pagani C9 is expected to come with a smaller engine than that of its predecessor. The 7.3-liter AMG V12 engine of the Zonda won’t be found in the C9, but what you can expect is a still impressive 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine. Besides, the supposedly modest engine of the C9 will be a lot lighter than that from the Zonda, which means that the total power output of little bro – somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 horsepower – will exceed that of the big brother.
The new Pagani C9 supercar was recently spotten doing some test runs in Upington, South Africa where the car was being put through a rigorous hot weather test – temperatures were taken at around 39°C (102°F) - near the Kalahari desert. By all indications, it seems to be getting its pistons running in time for its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The C9 – not it’s official name, as we’ve been told – will be succeeding the highly-successful Zonda supercar and much like its predecessor, the C9 packs power and speed to the absolute brim. Powered by an AMG Mercedes 6.0-liter V12 bi-turbo engine that’s capable of producing in excess of 700 horsepower and over 1000Nm of torque, the supercar also comes with about 3,770 new parts including a carbon-titanium chassis, specially developed Pirelli tires, and Bosch electronics.
Needless to say, the C9 looks every bit as tasty as the Zonda supercar.
For a car brand that rarely makes a splash in the news these days, the unveiling of the C9 supercar has made Pagani one of the most highly-anticipated attractions at the Geneva Motor Show. And if the C9 can live up to the high expectations set forth by the Zonda, then you can bet that Pagani’s new supercar will attract more than its fair share of customers.
Horacio Pagani has revealed new details on the future generation Pagani supercar. According to him the new C9 will be launched towards the end of 2010 and will be "a completely new car from concept, weight distribution, materials and dynamics."
The future Pagani C9 will be powered by an AMG sourced 6.0-liter V12 engine with a total output of 700 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. The supercar will come with 3770 new parts, a carbon-titanium chassis, specially developed Pirelli tires, and Bosch electronics.
Production will be limited to 40 units a year. Price for the C9 will be in the $1,250,000 area.
Pagani will give the first major changes to the decade-old Zonda starting next year. LeftLaneNews brought today new spy shots of the future Zonda F testing in North America. The car will keep a similar body to the current design, but will add a wider grille, sleeker looking headlights, revised rear end, and a new engine air scoop.
Under the hood the engine will likely be borrowed from the SL65 AMG Black Series. In the Zonda, the 6.0-liter V12 should deliver 661bhp and over 700 lb-ft of torque. This isn’t the only rumored engine. It could also be 7.3-liter V8 from the current Zonda F, or the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 from the Mercedes SLR 722. What is known is that it will be a Mercedes-based AMG motor making between 600 and 700 horsepower, which should be good for a 0 to 60 time around 3.5 seconds.
The car will finally officially be imported to the U.S. shores sometime next year. At that time expect to pay between $650,000 and $800,000.
A spy photographer caught the future Zonda F testing. The car will keep a similar body to the design launched 10 years ago, but will add a wider grille, sleeker looking headlights, revised rear end, and a new engine air scoop.
Under the hood the engine will likely be borrowed from the SL65 AMG Black Series. In the Zonda, the 6.0-liter V12 should deliver 661bhp and over 700 ft lbs of torque. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made in under 3.6 seconds. The engine will be mated to the same six-speed Cima sequential gearbox found in the Zonda Cinque. Prices should be around £400,000 (about $800,000).
First unveiled back in 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Pagani Zonda is about to get its biggest overhaul in its 10-year history.
The 2010 Zonda F will get an all-new front clip, re-sculpted rear quarter panels and a totally new air scoop that sticks up from the middle of the engine cover.
Under the hood Pagani will place either a 5.4L supercharged V8 from the McLaren SLR 722 or perhaps the bi-turbo V12 from the recently debuted Mercedes SL65 AMG Black series, but this is still a secret. In both cases the output should be around 600-700 hp.
AutoExpress caught the Pagani Zonda replacement while it was taking a brake from testing. And we have to admit it looks great! The car will go on sale early next year.
At the front, soft curves replace sharp creases, while a wider grille has been fitted to aid cooling and improve the looks. At the rear there are two gaping air scoops on top of the rear wings, together with a single duct on the engine cover. On the interior there are minor changes, keeping the same mix of hand-stitched soft leather and bespoke aluminium controls and trim.
It will be powered by a 5.4-litre V8 unit from the McLaren SLR, which produces up to 680bhp in the 722 GT version. The 0-60mph sprint is likely to dip below three seconds, and top speed should be comfortably beyond 200mph.
The future supercar from Pagani, internally known as the C9 will be probably powered by a V8 AMG engine. We think that because a recent spy video shows the C9 test-mule with a noticeably quieter exhaust system.
The future C9 will be unveiled next year at the Geneva Motor Show and will be sold on new markets including Japan and USA.
