The well-known Italian supercar company Pagani recently unveiled a limited-edition hypercar that pays tribute to the country’s air force. The stunning new Huayra Tricolore was built to honor the 60th anniversary of the National Aerobatic Patrol a.k.a. the Frecce Tricolori, which is where the name comes from.
This group of 10 jets has dazzled the world for 60 years with their highly synchronized maneuvers and dramatic displays of the tricolor Italian flag. The special-edition Huayra has a svelte silhouette and lines that emulate that of the air patrol’s Aermacchi MB-339A P.A.N. jets. Its blue carbon shell is accented by red, white and green lines that run along the sides of the car “like an impetuous engulfing flow of air” and hark back to the Frecce Tricolori’s famous plumes of colored smoke.
The supercar is powered by the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz twin-turbo V12 engine partnered with a 7-speed sequential transmission with an electromechanical differential producing 828hp. The new Pagani Huayra Tricolore will be limited to just three examples priced at $6.7 million each, most likely already spoken for.
