Pagani teases new C9 V12 supercarFri, 07 Jan 2011
Pagani has just released a second teaser video that previews its new supercar; currently known by the internal codename C9, the latest rumour doing the rounds is that Pagani has registered the name Huayra for its Zonda successor.
Pagani will unveil the new C9/Huayra at the Geneva motor show in March 2011 – it’s powered by a twin-turbo, AMG-developed V12 engine. You can watch the videos at www.deusventi.com – there are three more to come before the new Pagani is officially unveiled.
Lovely shots of the C9/Huayra’s interior, with lashings of leather and lots of bare metal. Like the Ferrari 458, many of the new Pagani’s controls appear to be grouped around the steering wheel – you can see the switches for the indicators and lights in the opening few frames of the video. There’s a row of toggle switches too, and the model that Horacio picked up in the first video makes a reappearance – it’s sticking out of the lower half of the centre console, and could well be the key for the new V12-powered supercar. Said key also gives us even more of a glimpse of the voluptuous rear-end design of the C9/Huayra.
A bit more abstract – in it company founder Horacio Pagani is enjoying a morning expresso. But look closely at the end of the video and you’ll spot Horacio pick up a tiny metallic model, which shows the design of the new Zonda successor, including the signature quad exhausts.
