Pagani Epitome: The First-Ever Manual Huayra Unleashed

New SUPERCAR - Every once in a while, the world of supercars welcomes a new star that pushes the boundaries of engineering and design. The latest creation from Pagani Automobili, the Pagani Huayra Epitome, promises to do just that.

Despite the recent launch of the Pagani Utopia, seen as the successor to the Huayra, the company’s dedication to innovation remains strong. Pagani has a history of producing exceptional versions of their models, as seen with the Codalunga, the Imola, and the Huayra R. The Epitome continues this tradition, debuting at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

A significant milestone for Pagani, the Huayra Epitome is the first Huayra to feature a manual transmission. This model was commissioned by a wealthy client who desired a manual shifter. The seven-speed gearbox, crafted by Xtrac, includes the latest triple-disc clutch for enhanced torque transmission. The gearbox is housed within a beautifully crafted aluminum open gate, reminiscent of the Utopia.

Under the hood, the Huayra Epitome boasts a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 engine from Mercedes-AMG. This powerhouse delivers 852 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, reaching up to 6,700 rpm. The Epitome matches the Utopia in power, achieving a top speed of 217.5 miles per hour. A six-way titanium exhaust system amplifies the engine’s roar, complemented by a blown diffuser that provides extra downforce.

Pagani engineers have refined the suspension system for the Epitome, reducing pitch and roll compared to the standard Huayra. The car also features a "Super Soft" mode, offering a cushioned ride for leisurely drives, perfect for scenic routes around Monaco or Lake Como. Notably, this mode automatically deactivates at speeds exceeding 93 mph, ensuring performance isn’t compromised.

The exterior design of the Huayra Epitome receives a subtle yet impactful makeover. New front and rear bumper treatments with LED lighting accents and a larger grille enhance airflow and aesthetics. A prominent integrated rear wing adorns the trunk lid, and the entire body is wrapped in a dark blue carbon fiber weave. Gold accents and wheels add a touch of luxury to the overall look.
