Italian boutique car-maker Pagani’s founder and CEO Horacio Pagani is a man of few words but a serious player when it comes to building supercars. And then in its business when automakers are gradually phasing out the manual transmission, Pagani does a volte-face. In fact, it has already planned one for its next-generation car. Pagani is also preparing a successor to the Huayra which will use a non-hybrid assisted twin-turbocharged V12 engine developed exclusively for this application by Mercedes-AMG.
But the big news is that Pagani also sees opportunities in the future electric supercar business. Pagani has recently revealed that its future line-up will included a pure electric model.
According to Pagani, a core team of 20 engineers and designers is currently working on the electric car project. Although all-new territory for the brand, the company is starting from scratch and will go alone instead of splitting costs with another company. Should all go well as planned, the electric Pagani should hit roads in 2025 and take on the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini among others.
