It appears you can’t be a luxury car manufacturer these days without branching out and dipping your leather-lined fingers into a few more, less car-y design pies.
Seriously, everyone is at it. Mercedes is stamping its name on everything from blocks of flats to helicopters. Porsche has a boat. As does Aston. Pagani has gone one further, by designing its own plane. Well, the inside of one.
It’s called the Infinito. And it is Horacio Pagani’s personal and probably very expensive touch on the cabin of the Airbus’s eight-seater ACJ319neo jet. Anybody with a vague familiarity of Pagani will concur that Horacio’s cars offer a knockout combo of offering outrageous quickness, and exquisite detailing. This is what Pagani now wants to do with planes, thanks to Airbus.
Just like the Huayra, the Infinito uses Pagani’s bespoke high-strength but incredibly lightweight carbon-titanium composite – carbotanium – except this time it’s not in the chassis but in the eight passenger seats, dining room tables and wall frames.
