Pagani stunned the automotive world last summer with a one-of-a-kind long-tail version of the Huayra, dubbed the Codalunga, Italian for “long-tail”.
The car was born from the request of two loyal customers who wanted a Pagani with a streamlined design reminiscent of the great racing cars of the 1960s, who spent two years working closely with the Italian brand’s special projects department, known as Pagani Grandi Complicazioni Time to get to the final design.
Pagani committed to building five examples, each starting at 7 million euros (about US$7.6 million), and this week the second of the five cars was revealed. This one has a bronze hue with an exposed carbon fiber end strip.
The Huayra Codalunga’s body is constructed of lightweight composite materials, with the car’s extended rear necessitating a stretched engine cover that’s 14.17 inches longer than the standard Huayra’s cover. Power, meanwhile, comes from the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 as the Huayra, but with power boosted to 827 hp from the Huayra’s 730 hp.

The Huayra Codalunga is officially the definitive version of the Huayra, although we could see that Pagani continues to offer new Huayra creations, as the automaker did – and still does – for the Zonda, its debut supercar.
Pagani unveiled a successor to the Huayra last September in the form of the Utopia, another V-12 supercar. Pagani once planned to offer an electric version of the car, although the automaker scrapped those plans last year, citing a lack of demand and emotion.
