Legendary Italian supercar manufacturer Pagani is to celebrate its 20th anniversary at this weekend’s Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard.
Founded in 1992 by ex-Lamborghini head of composite materials, Horacio Pagani, the manufacturer is based in Modena, the home of another well known Italian supercar company…
In celebration of this monumental milestone, the Pagani’s UK arm has organised the largest collection of Pagani Zonda and Huayra models ever seen in Great Britain, with almost 30 cars and their owners coming from as far afield as New Zealand, the USA and Hong Kong. Argentine-born Pagani himself will also be in attendance.
20 of the models will convoy from the London showroom Park Royal, London, to Goodwood on Thursday morning where they will join eight other cars in the record-breaking gathering. Later in the day, the cars, which boast a combined value in excess of £100 million, will take part in a one-off parade up the hillclimb.
Among the eye-catching cars will be a special display of five significant Zonda models, brought over from the Pagani Museum in Modena. These include the very first Zonda built, Chassis #1 C25 of 1999, plus a 2005 Zonda F, 2009 Zonda Cinque, 2010 Zonda Tricolore and 2018 Zonda Roadster, one of just three models made, and the world’s most expensive new car at launch at £15 million. The latter made its dynamic debut up the Hillclimb at Festival of Speed last year.
And representing Pagani in the Supercar run on the Hillclimb throughout the weekend will be a Zonda R that has undergone the extensive 'Pagani Rinascimento' restoration program. While not in action, this model can be seen in the Michelin Supercar Paddock, while a Pagani Huayra Roadster will also be on display in the Kinrara enclosure.
And one final celebration will come in the form of a Pagani ‘birthday party’, taking place for special guests on Friday night nearby Goodwood.
Christine Clarkin, Pagani UK’s Dealer Principal, commented: “We were really delighted to be so involved with the Goodwood Festival of Speed once again in such a high-profile way, and I can’t wait to see 20 Paganis parading up the Goodwood Hill on the Thursday afternoon as one of the many amazing attractions at this world-leading, must-attend event.”
