Created with Art and Passion

Visited Pagani again few weeks ago - I just couldn’t help it. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing comes closer to the definition of art on wheels than these cars; you just have to see it in person to fully understand.

The words in the title can actually be found on a plaque inside almost every Zonda that left the Pagani atelier in San Cesario sul Panaro, Italy. 

Yes, there is a lot of carbon and other fancy materials, but the hand-made finish is what really sets these cars apart - something that is very hard to come by in the automotive world today.

I have come to appreciate all of it even more after visiting the Pagani factory last summer: this is the definition of handmade at its finest and, without drawing any dumb comparison, the ethos I embrace in everything I do with my own car.

My total lack of mechanical skills does not allow me to have any input on technical topics, plus DIY mods without proper R&D are usually a bad idea, unless you enjoy undoing your own damage. So, for anything of that nature I gladly leave it to the pros and luckily I couldn’t be in a better place.

But for everything else I absolutely love taking the creative side in my hands - something I obsess to no end about. And with shaken and maintenance coming up in March I have started thinking...

Until next time.
