Hypercar maker Pagani Automobili is not new to firsts. Its limited-edition cars have long featured unique materials and designs, inside and out. So here's another.
Last week, Pagani became the first manufacturer to reveal a real car design in a video game: Zynga's "CSR 2" drag-racing competition.
The car is the Huayra Roadster BC, a variant of the roadster that was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva auto show. The real-life version of the BC variant is likely to make its first appearance during Monterey Car Week in California in mid-August, according to media reports.
In a joint press release, the automaker and the gamemaker said the "CSR 2" game would feature the Pagani Huayra in an 80-race competition.
"During the event, players have a chance to add the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC to their collection," the statement said. "Using augmented reality, players can also park their Pagani cars in their real-world driveways and open every panel to study the details close up."
That's the closest most game players will ever get to a real Pagani, which are extremely rare and spend most of their time in collectors' garages.
For example, the exotic automaker produced only three of the Zonda HP Barchetta, and one was for founder Horacio Pagani's personal collection. Luckily, that model appears in "CSR 2."
