Pagani C10 Hypercar Spying the Streets Shows More Design Details

We’re on the cusp of seeing the next hypercar from Pagani. The official debut is scheduled for September, but we’re getting a feel for what to expect at this point. Instagram users @_Tim_2712 caught a prototype C10 on the streets of Italy, and he quickly drew it up with a few photos.

He kindly shared high resolution images with, which we have in the photo gallery below. This is only the second sighting of the C10 prototype, but compared to our first look in May, there’s a lot more to see this time around.

Whereas the C10’s rear engine cover was mostly covered before, it’s now free of heavy camouflage. Thus, we see how low and flat the rear deck is. Pagani’s iconic quad-exhaust outlet sits almost entirely above it, bordered by a slim, slightly curved spoiler that connects the taillight housings. The stretch between the curved rear fenders is broken up by the engine tunnel, which we know hides the V12 underneath. Pagani has already confirmed a 6.0-liter V12 will return, possibly producing over 830 horsepower.

Our view this time is limited to the rear of the C10, but it offers a good perspective of the front wheel arches that are very pronounced amid low, flat bodywork. We suspect not all of the camouflaged panels have been removed. The area around the large front fender vents looks flat, as do the doors on this test vehicle. We know how Pagani likes curves in its supercars, and the official teaser from early May certainly shows more talent on the C10’s side than we see here.

The teaser also gives us a specific date for the C10 reveal. September 12 is the day when everything will be revealed, including the aero-focused design and the name of this new hypercar. C10 is the code name, but so far, we haven’t heard a whisper of what it’s called.
