Pagani Huayra Codalunga: a small series for seven million euros

No manufacturer has mastered the art of small, disposable series as well as Pagani. The most notable example is the Zonda: although the Huayra replaced Horacio Pagani’s debut masterpiece in 2011, the Italians continue to launch new Zonda one-offs to this day (the most recent being the new 760 Roadster). And because it fits perfectly with the Zonda, the Huayra also continues to be developed further.

After 100 coupés and 100 roadsters, 20 Huayra BC, five Huayra Imola, and 40 Huayra Roadster BC, the Huayra R with naturally aspirated V12 engine, developed only for the racetrack, is presented in 2021 – as “the most extreme Pagani of all time. ” and the last stage of Huayra’s development. But Pagani is far from done with Huayra!

The rear of the Huayra Codalunga has been extended 36 centimeters and completely redesigned.

The Huayra NC debuted recently – a one-off based on the BC, but without gullwing doors and with an air scoop on the roof. And just weeks later, Pagani pulled the fabric from the Huayra Codalunga. Is this particular model really the latest version of the Huayra?

The idea for Codalunga appeared in 2018

The origins of the Codalunga go back to 2018 when two long-time customers approached Horacio Pagani with a request to design a long-tail version of the Huayra. Longtail is the English translation of the Italian term Codalunga and means something like a long tail.

Four years after the first sight, Codalunga is now complete. Only five units with a base price of at least seven million euros will be built.

Only the Huayra Coupé has gullwing doors; the roadster version comes with conventional doors.

The project was carried out by a special department for one time and a small “Pagani Grandi Complicazioni” series based on the Huayra Coupé was presented in 2011. The Le Mans race car of the 1960s was inspired by its sleek body.

The goal is clear: Codalunga should not only be longer, but also more elegant. A car that will continue to inspire people at concours events around the world for decades to come.

36 centimeters longer than the regular Huayra

The entire rear has been redesigned for this purpose. The engine cover with the letters Codalunga is 36 centimeters longer and has nothing to do with the regular Huayra.

But that’s just the beginning, as the rear has been completely redesigned: the three lights per side have been rearranged and are now side-by-side. A wide diffuser and grille inserts have been removed, giving the rear a completely new look.

But one element can’t be lost from the Codalunga, and that’s the iconic four-pipe titanium center exhaust, which is said to weigh just 4.4 kilograms and features a special ceramic finish.

In the Huayra Codalunga, the V12 biturbo delivers 840 hp and 1100 Nm. Pagani did not mention the driving performance.

Weight is a good buzzword, because like every Pagani, the sold-out small series models are incredibly light. Thanks to the carbon triax monocoque and extensive use of carbon and titanium, the five-meter-long Codalunga weighs just 1280 kilograms. Just for the ratio: It weighs about the same as a well-equipped VW Polo.

At 1280 kilos, the 6.0 liter V12 biturbo should have an easy time. In the Huayra Codalunga, the Pagani V12 produces 840 hp and a maximum torque of 1100 Nm, which is sent to the rear wheels via the famous seven-speed Getrag sequential gearbox.

The Italians don’t reveal the driving performance, but a value of around 3.0 seconds for a sprint of up to 100 km/h and a top speed of around 350 km/h should be more than realistic.

First trip in Pagani 3.2 million euros

But the best value certainly wasn’t a top priority in its development, as Codalunga was designed less for the racetrack and more for prestigious events. The configuration of the customer’s first vehicle in blue-silver with a partially matt finish is also elegant.

Extensive use of visible carbon is avoided, and the seven-spoke filigree rims are reminiscent of Zonda Venti wheels.

Very elegant interior

Brown nubuck leather with special woven leather inserts is widely used in the interior of the Huayra Codalunga – a very elegant project approach is also seen here.

Always a highlight: the Huayra Coupé wing doors in the style of the legendary Mercedes 300 SL, which are also preserved in Codalunga.

Base price: seven million euros

Despite a base price of seven million euros (perhaps net), all five copies of the Pagani Huayra Codalunga have long been sold out. This spectacular project shows not only that the desire for customization is growing, but also how a vision can become a reality. And let’s wait and see if Codalunga is actually the last special edition of the Huayra.
