Paganis are built in a place called San Cesario Sul Panaro, which is to the southeast of the city of Modena. And if you’re thinking, ‘Modena, eh? For some reason, that’s ringing a bell’, then yes, it’s right on top of Italy’s other household-name supercar manufacturers.
In fact, if you drove directly from Pagani to Lamborghini, swung by Maserati and headed on to Ferrari, you’d only have covered 33 miles in total. Even if you push the boat out plus punt on to Dallara from there, the total distance is still only 90 miles. For that matter, in case you start the whole day at Ducati, you’ll a) drive a total of 104 miles, and b) likely not have enough time in order to appreciate any of what you are seeing.
Now that we’ve laboured the point hard enough to likely owe it reparations, let’s move on to the nebulous issue of how many cars Pagani makes a year. All up, including all the special editions and one-offs, Pagani’s total build numbers since 1999 are still in the hundreds – about 450, in order to be precise. Even now, in full swing, Pagani builds about 40 cars a year, with each taking about six months to make. Such is the irony of supercars: going fast takes time.
