Italian sports car maker Pagani will be going out in style with the final production run of its Huayra hypercar set to wear the custom Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One colours.
Car number 100 will be Pagani’s last Huayra and it will be designated with the “Il Ultimo” name, that’s ‘The Ultimate’ in Fonzanese. It’s also expected to come with an ultimate price tag too, given that the standard Pagani Huayra already demands AU$3 million locally. The final model will be delivered to the garage of Brett David who is the CEO of Prestige Imports.
So why the Mercedes racing colours on an Italian car? That’s because the Huayra has a Mercedes-AMG 6.0-litre biturbo V12 engine with 512kW of power and 1,100Nm of torque bolted to its backend and David wanted to pay homage to that.
AMG have been the engine supplier for the Pagani Huayra since the model’s debut in 2011. The unique partnership meant that only 100 engines would be built and from that, just 100 models of the outgoing hypercar.
Will it be a direct competitor to Mercedes-AMG’s own Project One hypercar? Probably not. But this one certainly looks more Italian, if that’s your thang.
