Pagani Automobili showcases two models at Goodwood Festival of Speed
This year, Pagani Automobili will be present with two examples of the new Utopia and two of the Huayra R. In particular, the English countryside will be the setting for the exclusive Pagani stand where to admire these Hypercars, both distinguished by an exposed carbon ﬁber livery. In the Supercar Paddock, on the other hand, the Utopia and the Huayra R will be ready to take on the “hill climb,” the uphill race in which vehicles of all kinds participate every year.
Utopia, a visionary and counter-trend automotive idea
The fascinating Utopia with an exposed carbon ﬁber ﬁnish, called “Dark Amber,” will catch the eye of all visitors. The latter is the result of the combination of the special Black Mamba coloring and the inclusion of small amber “glitter.” The same imprint of exclusivity of the exterior can be found in the cabin where the upholstery in Sand Nubuck and Grecale leather stands out, with a woven detail on the central section of the seat. The silhouette of Utopia is completed by the four titanium exhaust pipes, a distinguishing feature of the Modenese atelier that enhances the sound of the Pagani V12 biturbo engine with 864 Hp and 1100 Nm of torque, expressively developed by AMG.
This model will debut with the brand-new P Zero Trofeo RS tires (21” at the front and 22” at the rear), speciﬁcally developed by Pirelli for the Pagani Utopia, one of the many Goodwood 2023 premieres. The Pirelli tires have the role of elevating the performances and a sportier driving experience compared to the previous P Zero Corsa without compromising the balance of the vehicle and the feeling of the driver. This task was also accomplished thanks to the compounds chosen: especially, on the back, the most performing of the range was selected, being able to oﬀer speed and conﬁdence on the track, ease, and predictable reactions on the road. Moreover, thanks to the use of a long virtual development process, the optimization of the imprint on the ground was improved to oﬀer more adherence and control.

In the Supercar Paddock, ready to tackle the “hill climb,” a Pagani Utopia equipped with a manual transmission, oﬀering a driving experience of mechanical purity. The Pagani by Xtrac 7-speed transversal gearbox is able to transfer all the power and the exceptional responsiveness of the Pagani V12 to the road. It was not an easy task to design such a gearbox with synchronizer rings and a mechanism able to handle 1100 Nm of torque adequate for a pure manual application, but it was an essential requirement for Utopia. Nothing can replace the driver’s own mastery of the gearchanges: the prevailing logic is his alone, each change up or down is totally unique and depends solely on his decision and good judgment, the exact combination of circumstances, the nature of the road and the mood of the moment.
