Saturday, April 28th, 2012

A big part of what drives Beyond the KM is the desire to better understand the companies that produce the finest cars in the world. Driven has taken a first-hand tour of the Pagani facility, which includes some great interview footage with Horatio Pagani, the founder.

FACT: A square meter of carbon fiber fabric is $300 or so. Now you know why some of these cars sell for $2million!

the people at Pagani were propositioned to build a limited edition of just five (5) cars, which are called the Cinque, seen here:

The Cinque comes as a precursor to the next generation Pagani supercar, which is due out later this year. According to Pagani’s Catia Pramazzoni, the car will be completely new and will see a production number of 60 cars per year. More importantly, this is the first car from Pagani to be sold to the U.S. market. Pagani estimates that half of the production run will be sold in the U.S.

LeftLane News has posted some “spy shots” of the new car on its site, here:
