To overcome aerodynamic constraints, the engineers at Italian manufacturer Pagani have lengthened the extraordinary Huayra. The result is a Pagani Huayra "Long Tail," which goes by the sweet name of Codalunga. This hypercar is produced in only 5 units and not a single one more (well, except for the crash test). In 2020, British manufacturer McLaren presented its McLaren Speedtail, followed by the Swedish Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, and now it's Pagani's turn to present its version of the "Long Tail," the Pagani Huayra Codalunga. Why "Long Tail"? Because they have a significantly extended rear end compared to the standard version. This hypercar has a rear end that is 36 cm longer than the base version.

Only 5 units and 7 million euros each



It took Pagani two years of research and development for this "Long Tail" version of the Huayra to see the light of day. Horacio Pagani even explains that they "removed more than they added," drawing inspiration from the carrossiers of the 1960s. This can be felt on the scale, with the Pagani Huayra Codalunga weighing in at 1,280 kg (empty). The historic boss of the manufacturer even claims to have made "the Huayra Codalunga longer and smoother, as if it had been caressed and shaped by the wind, to create even more elegant lines than the coupe."

Let's talk mechanics. Under the hood of this magnificent Pagani Huayra Codalunga, we find a fabulous, melodious, and rare 6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine from Mercedes' AMG department. The result: 840 horsepower and 811 Nm of torque. The exhaust system, for its part, has been modified and now weighs only 4.4 kg.

Unfortunately, we have no information on the performance of such artillery! In any case, given the unit price, what owner would dare push it to its limits to test the mechanics? No one. But this Pagani Huayra Codalunga must display performance worthy of a hypercar! Pagani obliges! By way of comparison (even if Pagani, unlike Koenigsegg, does not seek to compete with Bugatti on the pure performance terrain!), the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport with its 1,618 horsepower boasts a top speed of 490.484 km/h (speed record for a production vehicle).

Produced in only 5 units, all of which have already been reserved at a unit price of 7 million euros. See you in a few years on the second-hand market or at an auction for an adjudication at 15 million euros? See you next year.

Pagani Huayra Codalunga for sale.

On June 16, 2022, Pagani Automobili unveiled its latest masterpiece – the Huayra Codalunga. This ultra-limited edition pays tribute to the timeless shapes of Italian coachbuilders and race cars of the ’60s. With its clean lines and sinuous, elegant shapes, this hypercar is a true work of art, fit for collectors.

Currently, no Pagani Codalunga is available on the secondary market. If one were to appear, it would likely be sold off-market. In the event that a Pagani Codalunga goes up for sale, the asking price would be around 10 million euros each.
