The team at Pagani is looking to build out a new electric super car and for that we could not be happier as Pagini is one of the ultimate super car manufacturers.
While we know that the Pagani brand is still in its infancy compared to some of the other bigger names like Ferrari and Lamborghini whose history runs deep, but the nineteen year old super car manufacturer is much more focused on quality and cool than it is on volume and mass adoration. The reality is that the company has only produced slightly more than one hundred and thirty models…in total, which is probably less than its high end brothers do in month let alone a day. But that hasn’t deterred the company from dreaming big.
The lead and founder of the company, Horatio Pagani who has produced the original Zonda and Huyara Coupes, has come out and confirmed that the company is squarely focused on make electric cars its focus. The Pagani team has begun development on super high powered electric vehicle, but has stressed that it will not be abandoning its current slate of gas combustion powered monster engines just yet. The company sees the future as electric and wants to make sure that this doesn’t compromise the aesthetic or performance of their beautiful machines and as such the Pagani team has been doing endless research on how to make this a reality.
The company’s founder sees a need for a machine to be able to produce around eight thousand volts of power for this new system to be able to deliver on expectations and he further ads that the work that needs to happen with training technicians and re-doing the shop to accommodate these changes will take some time. Pagani knows what he’s talking about when it comes to tooling and manufacturing as early in his career he became the head of Lamborghini’s composites division and is largely seen as the driving force in the introduction of carbon fibre materials and kevlar to the then common metal bodies of super cars. He is also acknowledged as the one who took this new framework and built the cult Lamborghini Countach Evoluzione in the late 1980’s. The one thing you can be assured of is that Pagani will not compromise on his vision and that vision is one of pure electricity and with that drive and determination you won’t see a hybrid version of his electric dream.
