Gas Guzzler refuses to go electric for wealthy buyers: Pagani's $2.6million Utopia is an old- school V12- gas engined stunner
Pagani's $2.6million Utopia is an old- school V12-engined stunner that refuses to go electric


Eccentric boss, Horacio Pagani, says the brand is developing electric models for the future - but says the tech is currently too heavy and lacking emotion for its cars

Utopia's drivetrain is not in any way electrified, instead opting for a 6.0-litre, 864bhp, V12 petrol engine

It also has a gated manual transmission so drivers can enjoy the 'mastery of the gearchanges', the brand says

Just 99 are to be produced and are said to cost in excess of £2million each - and they're already sold out ok glp , how many of you bought a pagani??!!!


Unveiled on Monday evening by the flamboyant Italian marque, the follow-up to the jaw-dropping Zonda and Huayra is an equally-stunning piece of four-wheeled art that will be produced in limited numbers - just 99, in fact.

Traditionalists will salute the brand's decision to opt for a monstrous V12 twin-turbocharged petrol engine and manual gearbox rather than heading down the same electric route taken by rivals, with eccentric boss Horacio Pagani recently stating that current battery technology is too heavy and lacking in emotion to be fitted to a car that wears the company's famed badge.



Prices are said to start from around £2.2million, though all 99 cars have already been promised to customers who likely already have a Zonda or Huayra in their collections - possibly both.


pagani says it has been developing electric drivetrains for the last four years, but it appears to be some way off bringing its first zero-emission model to market.


Instead, the new Utopia 'goes against the main trends of the time' with 'no heavy batteries' and 'no hybrid power', the maker says in its official announcement.

Horacio has argued in recent weeks that the climate impact of low-production-volume supercars is almost irrelevant, no matter how big the engine. And the Utopia's powerplant is certainly substantial.

no its the jets the owners use that use all the fuel

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-
