Few people in the world will ever have the chance to see a Pagani. Even fewer will have the opportunity to see where they are built. The supercars are exclusive, expensive and boast some of the most creative and innovative aircraft inspired characteristics in the world.
One lucky writer from Piacenza, Italy, Soluz of prototypezero.net, had the chance to go on a tour of the factory, see the office, the workshop and even some of the most beautiful cars in the world. Soluz told his story in a Dec. 3 article that quickly caught our eye.ca
“Firstly we visited the main office which includes: showroom, where Pagani welcomes clients; the offices, where Horacio and his team of engineers and designers work and and finally the production area, where until a short time ago Pagani cars were assembled. Now this area is dedicated to the carbon fiber manufacturing,” said Soluz in the prototypezero.net article.
He goes on later in the article to say, “We entered in this [carbon fiber manufacturing] area and noticed that the carbon fiber room was off to the right and on its own. You could hear the humming of the heat guns coming from the room on the side. This area is composed of three main halls, a small one where workers with extreme carefully cut and work large sheets of carbon fiber and carbo-titanium which is the last introduction and patent of Pagani. Basically it is the carbon fiber woven with a titanium wire, it is stronger and lighter than the steel and it is utilized for the car monocoque. The main room is where the Huayra was born, here the monocoque and all the body panels are under construction.”
Soluz continued through the factory, admiring how the carbon fiber focused car was created with woven metals and carefully placed panels. They proceeded to the new factory to see how the latest in Pagani supercars will be built.
“We entered the new production line and we could see the two Pagani Huayras being built for their customers. One right hand drive car with Saint Tropez orange body paint and with fully visible carbon fiber along the body (chassis N°34) and another one in early assembling stages (chassis N°32). A third Huayra (chassis N°36) was there waiting for road tests. This very particular car features a fully visible carbon fiber body, clear coated carbon fiber along the body and matte carbon fiber on the remaining panels.”
Soluz was given a huge opportunity, and we’re happy that he left an account of the experience. All sources, including photos, and our video below are from him and his team at prototypezero.net.
