After all the spy photos and leaks, Pagani has finally revealed the Pagani Utopia. The Utopia is the production-spec version of the supercar codenamed C10. The supercar gets its name from Thomas More’s Utopia from 1516 where the philosopher describes his ideal world. The naming of the C10 is interesting as the car doesn’t get names from literature often, the car has to live up to its name.
Pagani consulted its owners to create the Utopia with requests saying simplicity, lightweight design with pleasurable driving. The Utopia features a minimalistic design compared to the aggressive-looking Huayra and Zonda. The car keeps the active aerodynamic components while being subtle and minimal to look at thanks to its clear curves.
Engine Specifications & More:
The Pagani Utopia features a 6.0-liter turbocharged v12 engine from AMG that makes 852 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. The car achieves peak horsepower at 6,000 rpm and peak torque between 2,800 to 5,900 rpm. The engine is built with emission regulations in mind keeping the CO2 emission at a minimum. The Utopia offers a traditional 7-speed manual or a 7-speed automated manual gearbox. Pagani claims that its 7-speed automated transmission is the quickest shifting gearbox with helical gears. The supercar also comes with a rear axle electrically operated mechanical differential.
Body and Components:
Utopia’s monocoque chassis using Carbo-Titanium HP62 G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 materials. The front and rear subframes are built with Chromoly steel. The automaker used a new type of A-class carbon fiber for the Pagani Utopia’s bodywork. The new carbon fiber is 38% stiffer and carries the same density as Pagani’s previous models. The Pagani Utopia offers new forged aluminum double wishbone suspension setup with electronically controlled shock absorbers. The supercars also offer carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo with 6 piston calipers on the front and 4 at the rear.
The car rides on new wheels with 21-inch at the front and 22-inch at the rear with Pirelli tires. The Utopia offers turbine-shaped carbon-fiber intakes that extract the hot air to cool down the brakes. The rear offers beautifully designed taillights with titanium quad exhausts with ceramic coating weighing just 13.23 lbs. The car follows the simplicity and lightweight design with a curb weight of 2,822 lbs (1,280 kg).
Inspired by the minimalistic exterior, Utopia takes the design philosophy with digital displays. That stops there as the car offers an analog speedometer and tachometer to make it last longer than other expensive supercars. It features no infotainment screen (do you think you’d look at the screen while driving?). The car’s center console is filled with switches, instruments, and HVAC controls along with metal steering and pedals.
Pagani hasn’t revealed the official price of the Utopia, they will make only 99 examples of the supercar.
