These are very photo-realistic 3D building blocks for designers. In fact, so good that the website greets you with this large caveat: these are not real!
While these might not live outside computer screens: they are some great ideas regardless.
Who would need these highly-detailed 3D maps of the entire car’s surface? Does this not infringe upon Pagani’s trademarked and copywritten designs with the EU Patent Office?
The answer to those questions is: we do not know for certain. Overall, these screenshots sampled here promote TurboSquid.com’s expertise — design renderings used for legal and ethical means.
TurboSquid models are used by game developers, news agencies, architects, visual effects studios, advertisers, and creative professionals around the world. Whether you’re a 3D artist or not, you’ve probably seen TurboSquid models hundreds of times and didn’t know it – which is fine with us!
Our goal is to save artists the time of making a great model, and instead let them add their own personality to their creations. Our customers tell us they save 27 hours per model purchased, which can be a lifesaver in a time crunch.
In general, these are for use only for editorial and marketing purposes — coloring, angles, layouts, features highlights and such. Versus large-scale infringement, we presume. But this is a tricky area, without a doubt. The T&C’s of TurboSquid’s Editorial License are here.
Just Pagani? Oh no.

But 3D models of everything from tires to tables are now available online ahead of the big 3D printing push. It is impossible to ‘print’ an entire Pagani Huayra, of course, because these forms only encompass the exterior and interior surfacing — versus mechanical features that actually let a car be a driveable, high-performance exotic.
The true purpose of this article is to promote the detailed accuracy that can be purchased in full if one were so inclined and skilled. At that point, any angle is visible and everything is able to be tweaked. Typical clients include ad agencies and manufacturers themselves in many cases. Tech and defense companies like Raytheon are also listed on TurboSquid’s About Page.
For these purposes, the 3D models are basically like a ‘design sandbox’ — a play area to add unique ideas and create marketing materials.
Just goes to show: for everything we know about computers, there are millions who scoff at our feeble skills. Same goes across all industries, we presume, but rarely is it so clear as in computer-aided modeling and design.
On this note, here is the TurboSquid 3D render of a potential Pagani Huayra Extreme — with many changes besides the neon-green we are so fond of these days.
