ART IS ONE OF THE TECHNICAL PARTNERS WHO HAVE COLLABORATED IN THE CREATION OF THE NEW HYPERCAR, PAGANI UTOPIA
The technical partnership between Pagani Automobili and ART is not just about innovation, but also about sharing values that go well beyond mere business: attention to the territory, to people and to the client, who is made to feel a central part of the project.
The city of Milan hosts the world launch of the new Hypercar, Pagani Utopia. The presentation took place under the banners of art and science, the guiding principles inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, a constant element at the basis of Pagani Automobili’s creations.
The Pagani Utopia is the latest addition to the Pagani family and will be the last car of the brand to enjoy the legacy of the 864 hp twin-turbo 60° V12 engine, custom developed exclusively for Pagani by Mercedes-AMG. The Hypercar will also be available in a manual version for a mechanically pure driving experience.
Pagani Utopia has resulted in a partnership between Pagani and ART based on shared values, which has allowed the development of a state-of-the-art infotainment system tailored to the needs of Pagani and its customers. The infotainment system allows customers to enjoy an intuitive and high-tech driving experience, fully reflecting Pagani’s vision.
Utopia’s design stems from inspirations and stylistic insights from the past, recognizable in its evocative elements: volumes and iconic features, colours and materials inspired by the 1950s and 1960s. A car inspired by the past but looking to the future by defining timeless lines and shapes.
The result is at odds with current fashions: there are no screens, apart from the essential display in front of the driver, which nonetheless allows all the navigation, comfort, safety and entertainment functions to be exploited; this was a great challenge for ART, having to re-imagine the user experience and their interaction with infotainment, as there is no touch screen; a challenge that ART took up enthusiastically and professionally, working in concert with Pagani.
Thinking of and creating simple, clean and essential products is so often highly complicated, but the collaboration with a company with high skills and professionalism such as Pagani has allowed us to achieve a high-value product that will certainly stand the test of time.
