May 17, 2023 – San Cesario Sul Panaro: Pagani Automobili is proud to announce that it will be making its first appearance at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the most exclusive and historical classic car event in the world, from May 19th to 21st, at Lake Como.
Held for the first time in 1929, the festival has always been set in the splendid gardens of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este and Villa Erba in Cernobbio. Broken up into various categories, in 2002 the festival introduced an award for the most stunning prototype, the type of vehicles which best represent the link between the automobile’s glorious past and its exciting future.
The second of the five Huayra Codalunga created by Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, the division dedicated to one-off and few-off vehicles, will be competing in the Concept Car category. An authentic tribute to Italian coachbuilders and race cars from the 1960s, this model was created by getting the customers involved in the entire development of the project.
Its story began in 2018 when two collectors asked Horacio Pagani and his team to create a long-tail version of the Pagani Huayra Coupé. The idea was to produce a hypercar which was as elegant as it was simple and clean in its design, a model that felt just as much at home on the road as it did on show in international competitions.
The car on display stands out for its special exterior paint job which pays tribute to Bronzo Aymara, the launch color of the Huayra Coupè, which has been redesigned with an exposed carbon fiber finish. At first look, the paint looks like normal opaque Bronzo Aymara; however, if hit by light from particular angles, the carbon fiber can be seen. Moreover, standing out on the enveloping livery of the rear hood, the word Codalunga has been painted. Everything has been made even more special by the interiors upholstered in vintage-effect heritage leather which has been paired with a fine Loro Piana fabric.
The rear engine cover, which has a footprint of more than 3.7 m2, and is 360 mm longer than the one of the Huayra Coupé, conceals a mechanical prodigy: the Pagani V12, which, on this series, is capable of developing 840 HP with 1,100 Nm of torque. Moreover, the lack of rear grilles makes space for an unobstructed view of the Codalunga’s exhaust system, which is made from titanium and weighs only 4.4 kg (9.7 lb). 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.

In conjunction with the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the FuoriConcorso will take place from May 20th to 21st, an event which pays tribute to the most beautiful aspects of car culture with events and gatherings throughout Italy and the world.
The splendid Villa Scuota, the headquarters of Fondazione Ratti and an elegant residence overlooking Lake Como, will host the extremely rare Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta Revo, a one-off model which cannot help but thrill and amaze at first sight.
Its name instantly reveals that behind the beauty and elegance inspired by the road Zonda HP Barchetta, there lies a rebellious soul and performance levels which live up to the Zonda Revolución. This one-off combining two of the brand’s most iconic vehicles required considerable effort on the part of Team Pagani. It was especially complicated to develop a central structure made specifically for this model using the most advanced composite materials.
The chassis is made up of a Carbo-Titanium HP62 G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 monocoque with front and rear frames in Cr-Mo steel and carbon fiber bodywork. The suspension is a 4-wheel independent wishbone with upper rocker arms, helical springs and adjustable shock absorbers paired with an anti-roll bar. Its dry weight is 1,050 kg.
Under the hood, in a longitudinal central position, there is the aspirated V12 Mercedes-AMG engine which supplies up to 800 HP (625 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 750 Nm (77kgm) of torque between 5,500 and 8,300 rpm. The V12 60° twin-turbo engine is combined with a six-speed sequential gearbox (plus reverse) with a three-disc “racing” gearset and dog clutch in sintered metal.
The titanium exhaust coated with ceramic unleashes an unmistakable sound while the rear-wheel drive features an electromechanical self-locking differential. The braking system uses ventilated Brembo CCM (Carbon Ceramic Materials-Racing) discs and the tires are Pirelli P Zero slick with 295/650/R19 in the front and 325/705/R19 in the rear.
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta Revo’s remarkable racing core has been enhanced by meticulous attention to the tiniest details, as demonstrated both by the blue anodized aluminum components milled from a single block and the special livery inspired by one of the Can-Am-style aluminum models on display in the Horacio Pagani Museo which was made by a young Horacio Pagani in 1962.
Participation in the event in Cernobbio marks yet another step towards the festivities of Pagani’s 25th anniversary which will take place in the heart of Modena from June 16th to 18th. The complete program of this event which is open to the public is available at pagani.com: https://www.pagani.com/pagani-automobili-25th-anniversary/
