Exotic car manufacturer, Pagani Automobili, commences its operation in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau with the opening of Pagani China Automotive Limited (PCAL). In spirit of the occasion, Pagani is also introducing three units of specially designed Pagani Huayra called the Dinastia.
The origin of the Dinastia edition goes back to the Forbidden City where Mr. Pagani himself was attracted by the dragons on the Nine Dragons Wall. He then decided to come up with three units of Huayra for the special series, each with its own exclusive body colours.
The first unit will be dressed in carbon blue with an image of Baxia, a water dragon. Then there’s one unit wearing gold carbon and Yazi, a dragon that was born like a warrior. The last unit is decorated in flashy red carbon along with Chiwen, a fire-type dragon that causes rain and protect people from fire. Similar changes follow inside, where each car is embellished with the designated colour and dragon.
No mechanical changes are mentioned, so customers can expect to experience 700 hp from the same 6.0-litre V12 engine as found in the standard Huayra.
