Pagani Automobili, the Italian supercar manufacturer, whose Zonda supercar has already become an iconic figure in the world of ultra high-perfrormance automobiles is apparently finishing the development of the successor, still codenamed C9. The new long-aticipated, highly-rumoured and talked-about supercar may be fully unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this March. However, not much exact details are known about the C9 or the Huayra (a speculative name of the forthcoming hypercar). The Pagani C9/Huayra will be powered by a V12 engine, specially developed by Mercedes-AMG GmbH (see press release below). For this moment, three of the five intended teaser videos have been released. Enjoy them below and stay tuned foe the next details to emerge.
Engine for Pagani C9
Due to recent articles posted in the press about the future Pagani C9, Pagani Automobili and Mercedes-AMG GmbH would like to make the following statement.
The engine of the Pagani C9 is not a derivative of the AMG V12 engine developed for the SL65 Black Series, nor is the AMG V12 engine in the SL65 Black Series derived from the engine AMG is currently developing for the Pagani C9.
The cars are very different in their character and conception and the engine will reflect this in its technical characteristics and behavior.
The engine in the Pagani C9 has been developed specifically for that application by Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
