Pagani models, in general, are considered as works of art. The hypercars showcase beautiful carbon-fibre body panels with the utmost attention to detail. The interiors are also made out of the finest fabrics available.

As for the HP Barchetta, the car carries a unique design compared to other Zonda models. The low windshield, narrow roof scoop, wide rear spoiler and the partially-covered rear wheel arch, all help in adding a certain flair to the hypercar.

The HP Barchetta isn't meant to be an outright hypercar, though it has got every ounce of performance you would ever need. Pagani models are often considered as more of a lifestyle product rather than cars to set track records.

The Zonda HP Barchetta was recently showcased at this year's Goodwood Festival Of Speed; the same event at which the first Indian electric hypercar – the Vazirani Shul – was unveiled.
