Only a few hours after Pagani released the fourth teaser of the upcoming supercar codenamed C9 – and dubbed Huayra by an increasing number of sources –, a set of allegedly official magazine scans surfaced online. The pictures are said to be sourced from the upcoming February edition of the Spanish-language Car Magazine, featuring several shots of Horacio Pagani's new supercar.
There’s no way of telling if the photos are indeed real and not some skillfully done photoshops, but we have to say that the car shown is not what we expected. Sure, the gullwings are nice additions, but the rest is just a mild makeover of the Zonda, which in this case is a turn off.
According to the magazine, the new model will cost €1 million (US$1.36 million), while the annual production will be limited to just 20 units. Once again, we can’t confirm this, but the price sounds about right.
As for the teaser, it presents a sketch being drawn with Horacio Pagani himself providing the voiceover. “We wanted to give shape to the wind”, Mr. Pagani said. “And Huayra is our wind”. Only time will tell if that sketch has anything to do with the Zonda replacement and if it’ll be called Huayra after all.
