Inspired by the 1954 Turbina concept, the Lampo gets new livery and extra carbonfibre bodywork

Pagani has produced a one-off Huayra called the Lampo that takes inspiration from a 1954 concept called the Fiat Turbina.

The Turbina, a 295bhp turbine-powered sports car, had a drag coefficient of just 0.14Cd and wore a bespoke red and white livery.

Pagani has applied its own take on this livery to the Huayra Lampo, which gets its name from the Italian word for lightning, with clear red paint applied to carbonfibre panels. There are Italian flags at the back – a nod to the Fiat – while, inside, brown leather keeps the theme going.

The car, which has been created for Milan-based car customisation company Garage Italia Customs, has also gained additional carbonfibre body parts, borrowed from the 740bhp Huayra BC. It gets wider front air intake openings, which enhance maximum air flow to the engine by 5.35%.

No changes have been made to the powetrain, so the Lampo retains a 6.0-litre V12 engine that is good for 754bhp in the regular car.

“Working with Garage Italia Customs on this car has been a pleasure," said Pagani boss Horacio Pagani. "A beautiful and very interesting exercise which allowed us to move away from the shoreline, to dare and to discover always more."

Pagani’s customisation service, which is based in San Cesario sul Panaro in Modena, is part of the brand’s growing list of owner services. The company has recently launched a restoration service that can bring customer-owned Pagani models back to showroom standard.

The brand only pulled curtains on the Huayra's predecessor, the Zonda, in August, when an HP Barchetta was produced as the very last one. The news came as a surprise because Pagani had declared that the Zonda had reached the end of production when the Huayra was launched in 2012.

Move over Fiat Multipla, there is a new UglyMobile in town.

Which is a shame because most Huayras look great.

"No changes have been made to the powetrain, so the Lampo retains a 6.0-litre V12 engine that is good for 754bhp in the regular car." I thought the regular Huayra had 720bhp with the BC having 740 as mentioned already in the article. Although at this level of power I doubt 34bhp would make a massive difference in performance.

The Cd of 0.14 is quite staggering for a road car I have to say!

I suspect the price tag of this Huayra will make the £1.0m for the standard version look like it's the Popular Plus model of the range.
