The Autohub Group is proud to announce that they are the Exclusive Selling Agent of PAGANI here in the Philippines. “We first met him back in 2015 at Shanghai China, then we visited PAGANI in Modena, Italy in November 2015 then in Hongkong – Macau 2018 for the Macau Grand Prix. He’s a really humble guy considering what he did for Pagani and to the whole automobile industry. And now he’s finally here. I’m looking forward to see Paganis in the Philippine roads very soon,” says Autohub Group President Willy Tee Ten.

As Horacio Pagani sets foot in Manila, he does so in the wake of an important milestone. The founder of Pagani Automibili is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the brand’s first ever commercial release—the Zonda C12. Debuting at the 1999 Geneva International Motor Show, it was unlike any other car at the time it was introduced.  The Zonda used F1 technology and the science of space rocketry, rightfully earning it the status of hypercar and outclassing all other supercars.

Still, the Zonda wasn’t just about specs alone. What truly set it apart was the extreme attention that Horacio Pagani himself put into every detail. A self-taught car designer, Pagani took seven years to develop the Zonda, combining emotion and functionality, art and science at each step of the way.

Now, even at 20-years-old, the Zonda remains one of the most iconic cars ever made. And in this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, Pagani presented the completely restored chassis of the very first Zonda ever made.

The Zonda ended its production run in 2017, but Pagani’s follow-up offering—the Huayra—has found just as much success and is likewise a celebrated piece of hypercar history.

From the dream of a single man, and with the help of a few collaborators, Pagani Automibili has since grown to include 177 enthusiasts and artisans, all driven by the same passion that birthed the Zonda. Each car to come out of the Modena-based atelier is a hand-built work of art, combining the science of speed with the artistry
