Unveiling their first car at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show, Pagani Automobili was set to fight an uphill battle in the automotive industry for recognition, publicity, and, most of all, success. Taking it to the supercar establishment, Horacio Pagani set out to build his own supercar in Ferrari’s backyard in Modena. Thanks to a fruitful career at Lamborghini, Pagani had the experience needed to succeed, and their first production model, the Zonda, quickly proved to be quite successful in Europe.
However, the Zonda was not available in North America, and thus, Pagani was missing out on a massive market share. This was especially true in the United States, where potential customers were clamoring for a supercar that stood out from the standard offerings from the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren. In order to bring their company to the next level and grow their business, the next Pagani needed to be road-legal in the United States.
