Is The Pagani Utopia The Best Manual Hypercar?

The Pagani Utopia is one of the most eye-catching cars ever made. It’s also a rare sight since only 99 of them were made and all of them were already accounted for despite having a base price of around $2.2 million.

The Utopia is Pagani’s latest creation and it’s a successor to Huayra, featuring a big V12 engine and a manual transmission. At its heart is a a 6-litre twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V12 that makes 852 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, paired with a 7-speed manual gearbox.

You can hear that V12 engine roar at the start of this video and it’s definitely aggressive! But does the combination of the V12 engine and manual transmission make the Pagani Utopia the ultimate hypercar? Watch this video as James Dennison from CAR magazine takes it for a drive!
