Pagani is showing the second of five Huayra Codalunga

Pagani stunned last summer the automotive industry with the unique long-tail version of the Huayra, it was named Codalunga“long tail” in Italian.

The car was born at the request of two loyal customers who were looking for a Pagani with a streamlined design reminiscent of the great racing cars of the 1960s. The customers worked closely with the Italian marque’s special projects division, Pagani Grandi Complicazioni, for two years to arrive at the final design.

Pagani has agreed to build five examples, starting at €7 million (about $7.6 million) each, and the second of the five cars was revealed this week. It’s a bronze shade with a carbon fiber tail strip.

The Huayra Codalunga’s body is made of lightweight composite materials, the extended tail of the car requires a stretched engine cover, 14.2 inches longer than the cover the standard Huayra. Power comes from the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine found in the Huayra, but the Huayra’s 730 horsepower boosts output to 827 horsepower.

The Huayra Codalunga is officially the definitive version of the Huayra, though Pagani may still offer new Huayra creations, as the automaker did—and continues to do—with the Zonda, its debut supercar.

Pagani revealed the successor to the Huayra last September in the form of Utopia, another V-12 supercar. Pagani had at one point planned to offer an electric version of the car, though the automaker scrapped those plans last year. citing lack of demand and the lack of emotion in electric vehicles.
