Pagani’s Celebrating A Record 2017 With Two Geneva Show Cars

Even with McLaren moving down-market and Porsche selling crossovers hand over fist, some automakers remain decidedly low-volume by nature and by design. But even a company like Pagani can reach new heights, and reach them it did last year.

The Modense supercar manufacturer doesn’t typically disclose exactly how many of its seven-figure exotics it sells or builds on an ongoing basis. But it has revealed that 2017 constituted a record year for its turnover.

29 percent more than 2016, in fact. And next year will be even busier: “We anticipate 2018 to be the busiest and the most rewarding year, with the delivery of 40 new vehicles to their respective owners,” said Horacio Pagani. “We do not have plans to expand our new-car production capacity beyond 40 units, but strive to offer more services to the loyal members of our Pagani family of customers and giving them all our attention.”

To mark its success, Pagani will bring two cars to the Geneva Motor Show next month: a US-spec Huayra Roadster, and the one-of-a-kind Zonda HP Barchetta showcased at Pebble Beach last summer. The point is to showcase the range of possibilities open to the company’s affluent clientele.

Pagani isn’t the only exotic automaker to post record results in 2017. Both McLaren and Lamborghini achieved better results than ever before, while Aston Martin reached a nine-year high. But those figures were counted in the thousands. Manufacturers like Pagani count theirs by the dozen, at most.

Bugatti produced 70 Chirons last year at its factory in Molsheim, France. Meanwhile their mutual rival Koenigsegg has to ramp up production to about 20-25 per year in order to keep up with demand and cut weighting times.

    Glad to hear it. I’m even more pleased to see a Huayra Roadster. I do hope to see more if them instead of one off Zondas.

    One more thing before I forget, it’s “waiting” times not “weighting” times.

    • Aren’t they regular production? Like after Huayra Coupe production finished.

    what a dream machine! <3

  • Well good news for Horacio Pagani, although yeah by the press release, they don’t have much to show for this year in Geneva is it?

    Hope Mr Pagani is working on a brand new model. That’s what we are all looking forward to.

      am pretty sure he is already working on the next Pagani, just hope he stays way clear of the stupid SUV “hype”

    • You have to wait for few more years, with Huayra Coupe production close to end, next model would be Huayra roadster. And after that Pagani would launch the successor.

      But my guess he already developed the successor from before, Huayra takes almost half a decade to finish anyway.
