Pagani Automobili S.p.A is well-known for creating some of the best super cars in the world. The Pagani history started when the company was founded in 1992 by former Lamborghini Engineer, Horacio Pagani. So, how did he get the idea to start a company of his own? Horacio, from an early age, loved making cars using balsa wood. These designs can also be seen at the Pagani Showroom in Italy, Pagani being one of the biggest names in Italian cars Coming back to the subject, Horacio always wanted to build a car that could deliver high-performance. In fact, when he was about 20 years old, he built his first car which was a F3 Racer (picture below). Following his dream, he moved to Italy through recommendation of late Juan Manuel Fangio, who always played an important role in the inception of the company. By 1987, Horacio became the chief engineer at Lamborghini and even introduced the famous Countach Evoluzione Concept. In an effort to promote his design, Horacio suggested Lamborghini to purchase an autoclave to extend the production of the Countach Evoluzione. However, Lamborghini refused, saying that if Ferrari doesn’t need one, they don’t need one too.

The same year, Horacio purchased his own autoclave by borrowing capital and in 1991 broke away from Lamborghini to found his own company, Modena Design. This company was established to make carbon fiber composites using the autoclave for Formula 1 cars and for clients like Aprilia, Daimler, and Ferrari. The business was going good and soon his efforts resulted in significant profits.

Therefore, in 1992, he founded Pagani Automobili Modena with the sole purpose of fulfilling his dream: to introduce one of the best supercars in the world.
