Keeping relatively quiet through 2021, Pagani has unveiled the Huayra’s replacement in the form of the all-new Utopia.

Less exotic than the model it replaces, or even the Zonda that preceded the Huayra, the Utopia takes its name from a book of the same name written by the philosopher Thomas More in 1516, and Pagani describes it as fulfilling the exceptions dreams are made of.

The Zonda clearly touches the rear

Known internally as the C10, the Utopia follows the styling of both its predecessors, but according to Pagani, six years of sketches and computer graphics and calculations went into the final look.

Still sporting a carbon fiber monocoque and carbon-titanium body and chassis, Pagani has fitted the Utopia with a titanium exhaust system that cuts weight by six kilograms, electronically controlled shock absorbers, pusher springs, semi-active dampers and a double-wishbone suspension, said to , made of aerospace-grade aluminum alloy.

The Utopia is claimed to be 38% stiffer than the Huayra, whose design is said to incorporate elements of 1950s icons such as the Vespa scooter and Riva speedboat, with 21-inch front and 22-inch rear tires as standard. forged alloy wheels shod with Pirelli PZero Corsa tires and optional low-temperature SottoZero boots.

The 1280kg Utopia’s interior is an evolution from the Zonda and Huayra, with a distinctly old-school feel, lacking a touchscreen infotainment system or minimalist design.

The interior boasts a number of analog dials and switches, in addition to ditching the touchscreen infotainment system.

Instead, a series of analog gauges and buttons adorn the center stack, while a small display sits in the center of the instrument cluster.

Four periscope-style A/C vents emerge from the dashboard, and the final interesting touch is the one-piece aluminum steering wheel.

As for motivation, Pagani has settled on Mercedes-AMG’s proven 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12, which generates 635kW/1,100Nm. No performance numbers are known at this time.

Sending torque to the rear wheels is entrusted to a seven-speed automated manual gearbox or a seven-speed open-gate with the same open mechanism as in the Huayra.

Like the Huayra, the Utopia retains Mercedes-AMG’s 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12.

Braking power is provided by the Brembo carbon-ceramic brake system, which consists of a six-piston arrangement at the front and four-piston at the rear. The disk size is 410 mm and 390 mm, respectively.

​​​​​​​Although they are brand new, all 99 Utopias put into service have already been listed at a starting price of £2.1 million (R37.7 million).
