Pagani Huayra Epitome: superior purity thanks to the manual transmission

When we talk about exquisiteness in the automotive worldwhat Pagani does would be an ideal definition. They have been surprising us for years with the exclusivity of their models, first with the Zonda, now with the Huayra and soon with the Utopia. To put the finishing touch to their current model, they have launched the most special edition of all. It is called Pagani Huayra Epitome and represents the pinnacle of manual gearbox technology that many drivers dream of every night.

It’s about a one-off made with the Grandi Complicazioni customization department, which is what shows how far the brand is capable of going. A client came to Pagani with a very clear request: to offer the most essential and pure part of the model. For nine months they were planning this model focusing on the demands of the buyer. The base had to be the engine 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 which is the brand’s greatest asset and looks set to live on for a couple more years.

In the Pagani Huayra Epitome the power was taken to the 864 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque thanks to some modifications, but that was not the most important thing. The key is that this is the first and only Huayra equipped with a manual transmission. It’s a transversely mounted seven-speed Xtrac-made gearbox with an electronic differential and a racing-style tripod driveshaft. The modifications don’t stop there, though.

This specimen Improves suspension to reduce body roll and also has a “Super Soft” mode to offer greater comfort on broken or bumpy roads. However, from 150 km/h it would return to its initial configuration. The titanium exhaust system is specific and has four outlets placed in a central position forming a square. Wheels are forged aluminumare inspired by the Imola Coup√© and are fitted with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres.

Regarding the designthe Pagani Huayra Epitome introduces redesigned bumpers, a bonnet with new bumpers and different air intakes in the wheel arches. The cooling of the mechanics has been significantly improved thanks to its shapes, while the spoiler also favours aerodynamics. In fact, at the rear, references have been taken from the Huayra R and a new aerodynamic cover has been installed for the rear lights. The interior has been finished with the greatest exquisiteness and boasts that manual transmission with visible gears that will delight anyone.

Happy drivers
