Pagani's unique hypercar creations are a bit of a love/hate proposition, often stemming from the styling. There’s nothing else like a Pagani on the road today, whether it's one of the countless variations and one-off creations based on the Zonda or the new Huayra and its handful of iterations already populating the garages of millionaires. But that doesn’t mean the design flips everyone’s switch. It’s hard not to compare the new Huayra to a praying mantis, for example.
Horacio Pagani founded the company in 1992 after leaving Lamborghini and starting Modena Design, a company to develop composite materials for various companies, the year prior. In 1994, Pagani inked a deal with Mercedes-AMG to supply V12 engines for its future cars, which have been powering Paganis ever since. It took Pagani seven years before it introduced its first model in 1999 — the Zonda C12. A year later, it introduced the Zonda S. It took Pagani another 11 years before it unveiled its second model, the Huayra. Pagani clearly does things at its own pace.
So where do you stand on Pagani (hypothetically, of course, since few of us will ever drive, let alone own one)? You’ll probably never see one in person, much less spot one on your morning commute — unlike this lucky Redditor, who seems to be in some high-end automotive fantasyland (though we're not too sure about that paint scheme). Do the svelte design and supercar power blend perfectly, or do you think the design is all wrong for an Italian automaker?
