Horacio Pagani Shows Off His Porsche Cayman GT4, Carrera GT And 918

Beyond owning and being the founder of one of the world’s most exciting automakers, Horacio Pagani is also an avid car collector. At the recent Porsche Festival at Autodromo Marco Simoncelli, he brought along three of his most impressive cars.

The first is a bright blue Porsche 918 Spyder which Pagani has owned for the past 12 months. The car has been installed with the desirable and expensive Weissach package and hit the track with a family member of Horacio behind the wheel.

Also in Horacio’s impressive stable is a Porsche Carrera GT. While not quite as rare as the 918, the Carrera GT is considered as one of the last great supercars free of overly-intrusive driving aids and fitted with a six-speed manual transmission. Its high-revving 5.7-liter V10 engine is also one of the best sounding production engines ever conceived.

The most recent addition to the Argentinian’s stable is a bright red Porsche Cayman GT4. Inevitably purchased by Horacio for a massive premium, the GT4 is unquestionably one of the most exciting sports cars to be produced in recent memory, thanks in part to the use of the 911 Carrera S engine and slick-shifting six-speed manual.

While Pagani itself doesn’t offer a manual option on the Huayra, it’s clear that Horacio still loves the driving experience that only a stick shift can provide.

    After hearing the 3 cars, the Cayman GT4 sounds like a fart can deluxe. And I say that as a huge fan of the car. It does definitely look the part though, with all the aero. The Carrera GT sounds just incredible. I will always believe if you can afford these types of cars, then you can afford the worse fuel economy that comes with a super high revving exciting engine. The current crop of turbo exotics kill the sense of theatre and occasion that only a very high-revving engine with instant throttle response can provide.

    Cayman excluded, all the others are unusable on a normal road. So it’s like owning a collection of things you can only watch most of the time. And i love them deeply. Huayra in particular.
