Just a little Pagani history...

Pagani Automobili was started by the same guy as Modena Design, Horacio Pagani. Modena Design is a high-tech company which designed the Zonda, and Pagani is the company which produces it. The Zonda is Pagani's first car, and it was introduced and the 1999 Geneva Auto Show. 25 are produced a year.

Modena Design makes parts for automakers, including Lamborghini.

I have gotten a couple of e-mails asking about Pagani and when it was created, etc., so I just posted this for anyone else wondering.

Horacio Pagani was born in Casilda Argentina. he went to Modena following his dream, he wanted to make "the most beautiful car in the world" (he wanted to name it : Fangio). He worked for ten years in Lamborguini ´till he founded Modena Designs. Later, he could make the car, but Fangio died that year, and Horacio decided not to use the name of the great argentinian racer and rename his dream as the wind of Los Andes: Zonda (1999).In 2005, horacio thinks that he reaches the perfection of Zonda and names the 2005 car as Zonda F ("F" for Fangio). Nowadays Horacio Pagani dedicates the Zonda f to the great Juan Manuel Fangio (several times World F1 champion). Soon, he´ll present the roadster version. He will make 25 Zonda F, if everything go fine. 2007 will be the year of pagani again, he´ll show his new car to the world, with a "family feeling" to the Zonda but a entire different one. as he said to me: "there will be no pieces in the new car that have been used in the will be a totally new car". Believe when I say that Horacio Pagani is a genius.
pagani told me all this information, ´cause I own a magazine in my country ( and I made a little interview with the man. Pagani is a very gentle person...he´s a very smart designer.
sorry but my english is not good enought.
