Pagani, Pirelli open display at Grand Central Terminal


Opening November 5 and running through the 8th, Pirelli and Pagani are staging a special exhibition, “Pagani: The Story of a Dream,” in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

The exhibition, open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., features several hypercars, including the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, and celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Pagani Zonda.

“Early in his life,” Pirelli says in its news release, as a child in Argentina, Horacio Pagani “became a firm believer in Leonardo DaVinci’s principle that Art and Science can go hand-in-hand. This belief has led him on a path to the Motor Valley in Modena, Italy and to a philosophy that he and his team still follow today.”

“Grand Central Terminal, a globally recognized transportation hub with timeless design and beauty, is an iconic location where many immigrants arrived and began their American Dream,” Pagani is quoted. 

“As there are significant parallels between their journeys and mine, I am honored to tell my story here. I hope New York City residents and visitors passing though, will enjoy seeing my work and learning about how the commitment to sacrifice, hard work and passion can help anyone realize their own dream.”

Vehicles on display include the first Zonda chassis, 001, which has been restored by Pagani’s own Rinascimento program. Also being shown are the $18 million Huayra Roadster BC that debuted during the most recent Monterey Car week; the Zonda F, dedicated to Juan Manuel Fangio, Pagani’s mentor; the Zonda R track car; the Zonda Cinque road car, and the Zonda HP Barchetta.

“Working with Pagani is a real pleasure for us,” said Marco Crola, chairman and chief executive of Pirelli North America. “Every day, with his dream cars, Horacio presents us with highly advanced challenges and pushes us to achieve ever higher technological goals.”
