The Utopia is both more powerful and lighter than the outgoing Pagani Huayra

pagani utopia unveiled as supercar brand’s third car

Pagani has revealed its latest supercar, the new Utopia. It features the same twin-turbocharged V12 as the Huayra, albeit with more power. It uses a manual gearbox only, forgoing the option of an automatic transmission.

At a typically grandiose event, the Italian marque’s founder, Horacio Pagani oversaw the unveiling with the Symphonic Orchestra of the Milan Conservatory providing the background soundtrack.

Pagani also provided a video to accompany the event which showed Horacio looking around the new car’s details – many of which have been clearly influenced by previous Pagani supercars.

We’ve seen leaked images of the Utopia before, which was codenamed ‘C10’ by Pagani (the Zonda was internally known as the ‘C8’ and the Huayra was codenamed ‘C9’). From the outside, we can see typical Pagani design cues such as the covered headlights, recessed bonnet, circular rear lights and of course, the quad-exhaust arrangement.

The overall look of the Utopia is certainly less aggressive than previous Paganis, but there’s plenty of clever aerodynamic work here. While it goes without the braking flaps seen on the Huayra’s bonnet, air is channelled through the lower grille over the windscreen to promote stability. The rear wing also features active aero flaps which can tilt depending on how much downforce is needed.

Sitting beneath the monocoque body made from a mix of carbon and titanium (Pagaini calls it carbotanium) is a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V12. It produces 864bhp in the Utopia, which is 85bhp more than the most powerful version of the Huayra – the NC. There’s also 1100Nm of torque available from 2,800rpm to 5,900rpm.

The power from the engine, sourced from Mercedes-AMG, is sent to the rear through an Xtrac seven-speed automated manual transmission or pure manual with an ‘electro-mechanical differential’.

The suspension is made from a forged alloy, with double wishbones and semi-active shock absorbers. Different driving modes can change how firm the damping is, too. As you’d expect, the brakes are equally impressive. There are gigantic 410mm discs with six-piston Brembo calipers at the front with four-piston calipers to the rear. These are just about visible behind the aerodynamically tweaked 21-inch front and 22-inch rear wheels.

The extensive use of carbon fibre and lightweight materials for the Utopia means it’s light. It weighs just 1,280kg – just over 100kg lighter than the recently revealed Koenigsegg CC850. The Utopia will be slightly more common than its Swedish rival however, with 99 units planned to the Koenigsegg’s 70. In any case, the Utopia is sold out already.

Pagani has referred to the Utopia as the ‘coupe’ model, and given the firm’s penchant for extending its model range, we can see a few Utopia variants down the line.
