Just like a tailored suit, the Huayra Lampo is able to express the best of the Italian know-how in terms of materials and exclusive design.
For this car the craftsmen of the company from San Cesario sul Panaro have worked for almost two years in closely with the Garage Italia team. The project also involved Horacio Pagani and Lapo Elkann themselves.
Why Lampo? All the Pagani cars have the name of a wind. We chose Lampo, the italian for “flash”, another strong element of the nature, often a prelude to something unexpected and always different.
The car celebrates the values of dynamism and speed, emphasising the chromatic contrasts and taking its inspiration from a model from the 1950s, the Fiat Turbina. The futuristic livery of the iconic concept car is a hymn to speed and aerodynamics, enhancing its sinuous shapes and creating the optical illusion of movement even when the car is stationary. The two-tone chosen for the Lampo faithfully reproduces the original Fiat concept colour scheme, with a substantial difference compared to the original: a play of transparent colours, as is the case on the other Pagani cars which show the weave of carbon fibre while maintaining a smooth finish. To obtain this particular effect, a new carbon fibre texture has been developed that tends to enhance the brightness of the paint.
In order to create this model, which represents a rare exception with respect to our work, we have also intervened on the aerodynamics of the Huayra Lampo, derived from the Tempesta package on the Huayra BC: the new front vents convey even more air to the radiators of the intercoolers. The result? A greater aerodynamic penetration to the car and a further increase in performance.
Inside the cockpit we can appreciate perhaps even more the uniqueness of this project, with leather inserts (which takes up the two-tone livery) hand woven by the Turin-based craftsmen of Foglizzo Leather, which cover the dashboard and seats, but also the steering wheel and handbrake, embellished with contrasting stitching.
The car, shortly after its presentation, was then put on sale at the California dealership Pagani Newport Beach, and after a short time it was purchased by a customer about whom we can tell you very little… And if any of you are sure that last summer it was on the streets of Montecarlo or nearby, you are not mistaken. The car, now settled in Miami, was one of the protagonists of a European tour on the road along with other supercars.
