Pagani Automobili presents the Huayra R Evo, the new open-top car that enhances the experiences of clients in the Arte in Pista program. With a focus on this exclusive club of track-Hypercar owners, the Pagani team explored new stylistic and technical potential, giving rise to an even more thrilling and extreme vehicle.

«The Huayra R and the Arte in Pista program have expanded our clients’ experience with the Pagani brand beyond our wildest dreams, giving a new opportunity to owners of the Zonda R and Zonda Revolución as well. The demand for the Arte In Pista program, where adrenaline-seekers from around the world meet to share their common passion, led us to think about an addition to the program. It is our pleasure to share the Huayra R Evo with you, pushing the boundaries of performance and emotion even further. Let’s start by removing the roof and take it from there…» (Horacio Pagani, Founder & Chief Designer of Pagani Automobili)

In 2021, for the launch of the Huayra R, Pagani Automobili announced the beginning of the new Arte In Pista program, a rich calendar of personalized events allowing owners of the new model, alongside those of the Zonda R and Zonda Revolución, to take it to its highest levels of performance. The essence of Arte in Pista consists of non-competitive track events at the most prestigious FIA circuits in the world, featuring both high-octane sessions and leisurely moments. The format includes a complete track experience and the technical assistance of the Pagani team, including the technical director for data analysis, track engineers and mechanics, and a motorsports physiotherapist and nutritionist. The program’s highlight is the support of professional drivers, who contribute to improving the client’s driving skills.

«I was fortunate to be able to attend all of the Arte in Pista events during 2022 and I am so pleased I made the time to do so. I felt very much part of the Pagani family, and the level of care and organization were extraordinary. I had nothing to worry about, the Pagani team took care of everything, allowing me to focus all my time and energy on my new Huayra R at the amazing circuits we visited. My family and friends were made to feel very welcome, which made the whole experience even more special for me. I feel I should also mention the driver coaching and race mechanics that were there to support each event. Having raced myself in the past, I could appreciate the quality and level of detail. It does feel like you’re part of a professional race team, with data analysis, driver coaching, timing, and physio.» (M.R. – Huayra R owner)

«A program like Arte in Pista has several key components: the cars, the events, and the people. The Huayra R is just as incredible to drive as it is stunning to look at. Having experienced two years of Arte in Pista with the Huayra R, I am still blown away by the car’s performance and its breadth of capabilities. And the sound! You feel like you’ve been transported back in time to the glory days! The Pagani team that runs the events has to be amongst the world’s best. In addition to managing the cars and the track activities like a professional racing team, they take care of the participants and their families so well that it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to say that these events are worth attending even if you weren’t driving! The level of focus and commitment I’ve seen in most of the participants is seriously impressive. As fun as it is to just be able to drive a car like this on the track, most people in the program are willing to put in the (very) hard work needed to consistently improve. I am very much looking forward to the next season, and beyond!» (A.S. – Huayra R owner)

«The inspiration for the design of the Huayra R Evo struck me during a Formula Indy race in Nashville: as I observed the single-seater cars with their Aeroscreens, the idea of creating a car with protective polycarbonate surfaces and the option to remove the two roof panels to be fully immersed in the allure of the air and the captivating sound of the engine, dawned on me.

From that moment on, we set out with the goal of creating a beautiful car, subjective as that term may be, harmonious in its lines and strong in its character. The final result is a true descendant of the Huayra R, one of the cars our customers love the most.

We also drew inspiration from the elegance of Le Mans cars that graced the tracks in the ’60s and ’70s, including the swift ‘codalunga’ long-tail prototypes.

With these stylistic foundations, we meticulously addressed aerodynamics, design, and every minute detail, adhering to the high standards synonymous with Pagani Automobili and the expectations of our discerning customers.

This fascinating project engaged the entire team for approximately two years, involving extensive testing and participation in Arte in Pista events on track. We gathered valuable insights from our customers, collaborating closely with longstanding partners such as Pirelli and Brembo to develop top-tier components for a high-performance and distinctive vehicle like the Huayra R Evo.» (Horacio Pagani, Founder & Chief Designer of Pagani Automobili)

In the quest to further elevate the driver’s experience, Mr. Pagani and his team have shaped the new Huayra R Evo drawing inspiration from a time when drivers braved the elements, piloting open-top cars, in their pursuit of victory.

The result is a bold and aggressive vehicle designed to meet an extreme need for freedom, yet with careful consideration for safety, aimed at thrilling even the most expert driver with uncompromising performance. With a significant increase in power output, braking performance, aerodynamic efficiency, and vertical load, the Huayra R Evo can match the performance levels of the current Le Mans Prototype 2 race cars, providing an experience remarkably close to the epic world of endurance racing that has transformed drivers into heroes and sensational cars into eternal legends.

«When the Huayra R was born, we had an extreme car in mind, an expression of a great desire for freedom. At that time, with premises like these, it was not possible to think of its future evolution, but thanks to the Arte in Pista program and its related experiences, we allowed ourselves to be inspired by new stimuli. Nature teaches us how every organism tends to evolve to adapt to environmental conditions, and this principle guided the creation of the Huayra R Evo project. The term ‘Evo’ reflects the transformation of a Hypercar that increasingly adapts to its natural environment — the track — integrating new elements and evolving in terms of performance and drivability.” (Francesco Perini, Head of Technical Department at Pagani Automobili)

Many of the design peculiarities of the Huayra R Evo are evident at first glance: at the front, the team of designers conceived a compact and aerodynamically efficient layout through a sophisticated system of air ducts to manage the optimal distribution of cooling required for brake discs, calipers, and the water radiator. This ducting system is integrated and supported by the splitter, extended forward by 101 mm (approx. 4 inches), featuring a dedicated aerodynamic profile that enhances the car’s capabilities. Alongside it, the double row of flicks on the hood contributes to the aerodynamic load on the front axle, essential for maximum control during corner entry.

From the front hood, the sinuous beltline and the shaped side sills enhance the perception of lightness and efficiency, giving rise to a flow system essential for functionality in extreme conditions. It represents a complex fusion of shapes and surfaces that, on one hand, allows the release of air and heat accumulated in the front wheel arches, and on the other hand, contributes to generating an airflow that aerodynamically cleans the rear engine compartment.

These features are complemented by a 190 mm (approx. 7.5 inches) extension at the rear, following the ‘codalunga’ (long-tail) concept. The expansive and gracefully contoured rear hood supports the newly introduced central stabilizing fin and the integrated supports within the wing, featuring metal side flaps reminiscent of iconic designs from the past. The body is completed by a rear extractor that incorporates essential aerodynamic fins to streamline the airflow at the rear of the vehicle. All these developments have also led to an increase in the surface area of the aerodynamic underbody, an aspect carefully considered during the design of every detail of the vehicle and its drivability to ensure it is both extreme and intuitive – whether observed in the pits through the expression of its design or experienced while driving on the most prestigious tracks.

The overall body design incorporates cutting-edge Class A carbon fiber, specifically developed for the Utopia with a keen focus on aesthetic applications. This carbon fiber, enhancing both visual appeal and structural performance, has contributed to a 38% increase in stiffness characteristics at the same weight, optimizing material usage and reducing the vehicle’s weight.
