The newly launched Pagani Utopia of the Pagani brand is not simply a car, it is truly a masterpiece of modern art. This Hypercar was inspired by the work of Leonardo da Vinci and now this car is being introduced to the public alongside the legendary artist’s works.

Utopia is on display at the Italian National Museum of Science & Technology in Milan, which hosts the Leonardo Gallery, the world’s largest exhibition about da Vinci, who lived in the city during the renaissance.

Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili, said: “The presentation of our new car in the special setting of the National Museum of Science & Technology in Milan has a special meaning. The painter Leonardo da Vinci has been a huge influence in my life since I was a boy, he is the inspiration for the basic concepts of Art and Science that guide our work . Therefore, the fact that the Pagani Utopia is displayed in the museum named after this artist is a truly indescribable feeling for me.”

This special event will allow visitors to follow the creation of Utopia, from the inspiration for the first sketches, to the color palette and materials used. The exhibition will then flow into the Sala del Cenacolo, where visitors will be allowed to admire Pagani’s latest hypercars. The version with a bare carbon frame of Utopia will be displayed among very special da Vinci paintings. This special exhibition event is curated by Pagani Automobili and Pietro C. Marani, leading da Vinci research experts.

Pietro C. Marani comments: “A thread linking Leonardo’s observations and the late artist’s understanding of aerodynamics with the creations of Horacio Pagani. It seems that the designer ultimately gave specific shape to what Leonardo envisioned for the air to create the sculptures, such as you can see in the two fortress drawings in the exhibition. ”

Along with Utopia, the museum will also display a 1999 Pagani Zonda C12 and a 2011 Huayra Coupe, telling the story of the nearly 25-year journey of the Pagani brand. Visitors will be greeted by the sounds of a symphonic work written by the Milan Conservatory.

Equipped with a V12 engine with 852 horsepower, Utopia weighs only 1,280 kg, nearly 70 kg lighter than its predecessor Huayra. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual or single-clutch automatic transmission and prices for the new Hypercar start at $2.19 million.
