TORONTO, July 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Pfaff Automotive Partners is proud to announce it is the exclusive Canadian importer and dealer of Pagani, a premium Italian automotive manufacturer. Pagani Automobili S.p.A. was founded in 1992 by Argentinian, Horacio Pagani and is based in Italy.
"We are proud to bring this exotic automotive brand to Canada, with its reputation for leadership in technology and design," said Christopher Pfaff, President and CEO of Pfaff Automotive Partners. "Aligning the Pfaff brand to Pagani is an absolute honour and we are excited to introduce their latest supercar, the Huayra, to the Canadian market."
Pagani prides themselves on building vehicles that are completely custom made from start to finish. The Huayra is made of more than 4,000 components (engine and gearbox not included). The design is considered to be a complete redesign of Pagani's first model, the Zonda, a vehicle which itself took seven years to complete and demanded the utmost attention from Pagani's impeccable team in Italy.
"To create [the pieces] and put them together requires creativity, patience and passion that I share with a fantastic young team and with the most competent partners in all sectors," said Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani. "The team was able to work on many projects at the same time, driving on different tracks that occasionally came to meet by sharing engineering concepts, materials, safety and scientific or design studies."
In partnering with Pagani, Pfaff continues to exemplify its commitment to meeting the demands of the growing supercar market in Canada. Pfaff will serve a national clientele from its dealership in Woodbridge.
