Pagani Releases Third Teaser

The car codenamed C9 and hopefully named Deus Venti (sounds a helluva lot better than 'Huayra') has been spending much time in front of the camera. Or, more accurately, the camera has been spending much time zooming in on various aspects of the car. Pagani released its third teaser video of its upcoming flagship this week, giving us our best look yet at the soon-to-debut, 700-hp hypercar.

The new video is entitled "The Shape of the Wind," the first mention of the wind (a word that is common to both the Huayra and Deus Venti names, as well as to the Zonda). Like the other teaser videos, the new video doesn't give us much; it's essentially a collection of quick, shadowy zooms that show a few details including the steering wheel, wheel, and hood. There's even a glimpse at the badge, but it does nothing to stifle the name debate as it's simply the "Pagani" name, not the model name.

Other than that, we're still left in the dark as to what the Pagani will look like. More accurately, we're left to the many spy photos that have hit the Web over the past year. Spy photos show that the new Pagani will be more curvaceous and sculpted out than its predecessor the Zonda. The rear will have a more dynamic look than the outgoing Zonda but will maintain the center-mounted exhaust.

As far as power, the Deus Venti will bear a bespoke V12 engine built by Mercedes AMG. That engine should put out around 700 horses.

Recent reports have been mixed as to whether the C9 will be officially called the Huayra, an ancient name for wind in the Andes, or Deus Venti, which translates to "God of the Winds" in Latin. Pagani registered the Huayra name, and Horacio Pagani is originally from Argentina. On the other hand, Pagani's teaser videos can all be found on a website called deusventi.com.

With the Geneva Motor Show set to start on March 3—that's just 44 days from today—it won't be long until we get to see the Deus Venti in all its glory. We will have to sit through two more painful teasers in the meantime, though.

One of the Pagani's biggest rivals--the Lamborghini Aventador—will also debut in Geneva. As usual, it is sure to be a memorable show.
