With a trained eye, you might catch a blur of red, white and green stripes as the Pagani Huayra Tricolore rips through the road. It’s an extremely rare model (there are only three existing units) that’s designed after the Frecce Tricolori—the Italian Air Force training group. This iconic aerobatic team explodes through the Italian skies, daring to defy gravity as they loop and swirl through a series of jaw-dropping stunts, all while leaving a beautiful trail of Italian-themed colors behind them.
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Frecce Tricolori, Pagani has created the Tricolore (meaning “tri-colored” in Italian) supercar. This Pagani for sale is extremely rare, oh and it’s $6.7 million dollars—that’s double the Bugatti Chiron Sport! Not only is this car fast (829 horsepower fast), it has some amazingly creative elements, too. Horacio Pagani designed the Tricolore with actual aviation pieces into the body of his race car including a rear wing to mimic a plane tail fin, plus a pitot tube on the nose of the car—an aircraft tool that determines the aerodynamic condition of the plane.
Built to cut through the air, this Italian menace is extremely lightweight, weighing just 2,800 pounds. The no-roof design contributes to the aerodynamic lightness, plus a carbon fiber body, aluminum accents and composite materials, both on the exterior and the interior. It really does embody an aircraft, through and through.
Even though the Pagani team has yet to release any performance specs or talk speed publicly, 829 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque with a lightweight design is going to be fast. Like, surpassing the 300 MPH barrier and then some. Pagini used the Aermacchi MB-339A PAN as inspiration for the design—a jet that cranks up to 550 MPH. So, the Tricolore has big shoes to fill when it hits the roads in 2021, and we’re excited to see if it can bring those sky speeds to the road.
