- Throughout the weekend, there will be track sessions with the Huayra R, Zonda R and Huayra Roadster BC models.

23 August 2023, San Cesario sul Panaro – On August 26 and 27, the Historic Minardi Day returns, the event dedicated to the enthusiasts and the world of F1 collectors, racing cars in general, prototypes, GT cars and historic cars. 2023 marks the seventh edition, the event conceived by the Minardi family will take place at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari International Circuit in Imola.
Visitors will be able to admire on track the Huayra R, presented in 2021 with the sole objective of offering uncompromising results; the Zonda R, extreme but at the same time marked by the simplicity of driving typical of Pagani; and finally the Huayra Roadster BC, capable of recording significant performance.
Utopia, the latest Pagani hypercar embodies a visionary and counter trend automotive idea, characterized by a simple and unrepeatable design, will be exhibited throughout the whole weekend. To achieve its ideal final shape, an extremely complex process took place over six years. The active aerodynamics, combined with electronically controlled shock absorbers, ensure optimum dynamic behavior in all driving conditions. The Pagani V12 engine, a 6-litre biturbo produced exclusively by Mercedes-AMG, is the result of a huge development work: it delivers a power output of 864 hp and above all developing a torque of 1100 Nm. Produced in just 99 units, Utopia has already been completely assigned to a small circle of enthusiasts.
Next to it, two other iconic models will be exposed, Zonda C12 and Huayra, that represent the three milestones of the brand. In particular, the Zonda tells the story between a young designer and the great Juan Manuel Fangio, legendary 5 times F1 world champion, friend and mentor of Horacio Pagani’s dream. It could not therefore be missing in an event that has its roots in F1.
A protagonist of the exhibition is the Huayra Codalunga, created in just five examples by Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, a division dedicated to one-off and few-off cars. Presented in 2018, it stands out for its elegant and simple design: the colors and materials nostalgically recall the style of the 60s, with exterior paint that invades the cockpit and handmade leather/nabuk coatings. The engine hood, 360 mm longer than than the Huayra Coupé, hides a prodigy of mechanics: the Pagani V12 that on this series is able to develop 840 hp with 1,100 Nm of torque. In addition, the lack of rear grilles makes space for an unobstructed view of the Codalunga’s exhaust system. The special ceramic coating completes the homage to the racing cars of Le Mans and the symphony that emanates from the signature four tailpipes is a tribute to automotive passion.
The Huayra Roadster HP will also be displayed in the paddock. The one-off is the result of Pagani’s latest aerodynamic studies, so much so that every line and surface has been designed to generate maximum aerodynamic load. The frame is a monocoque carbon-titanium HP62 G2 and carbo-triax HP62. Extremely effective from an aerodynamic point of view, Huayra Roadster HP is equipped with the Pagani V12 6.0 engine, with double compressor, which delivers 840 hp and a torque of 1,100 Nm at 2,000 rpm/min.
The participation in the Minardi Day is yet another stage of the journey dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the brand celebrated in one of the most iconic circuits of the motorvalley.
