Pagani Alisea Concept: A Beautiful Tribute to the Zonda

The Pagani Alisea, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the iconic Zonda, brings a fresh perspective to the revered lineage of Pagani supercars. While Pagani was involved in the project, the majority of the work was done by students of the Master Course at Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Torino, who crafted a stunning, clean design for the 1:1 scale model.

In contrast to the intricate aerodynamic features often seen on high-performance vehicles, the Alisea opts for smooth surfaces and minimised vents and scoops. Its bulging wheel arches complement the curvaceous silhouette, mirroring the width of the Zonda at 2054mm.

With a length of 4521mm, the Alisea is slightly longer than its predecessor but maintains a lower stance, standing at just 1069mm tall. Drawing inspiration from Group C endurance race cars, its canopy design exudes a nostalgic flair. While retaining the essence of the Zonda, the Alisea introduces modern elements such as sleeker, slimmed-down mirrors and updated quad headlights.

The Alisea’s design reflects a departure from the intricate aerodynamic packages of previous Zonda iterations, aligning more closely with the styling cues of the Huayra and its variants. Despite being a one-of-a-kind creation, it wouldn’t be surprising if Pagani incorporates elements of the Alisea into future designs, especially if commissioned by a discerning buyer seeking exclusivity.

Indeed, Pagani’s history is marked by the creation of bespoke Zonda models tailored to individual preferences, showcasing the brand’s ability to bring unique visions to life. As the legacy of the Zonda continues to inspire, the Alisea serves as a testament to Pagani’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of automotive design and craftsmanship.
