Here is yet another reason to get your butt down to Modena.
Modena, Italy, is Mecca for gearheads. There are a ton of altars to worship at, including a brand new Pagani factory and showroom. The company recently finished building its new facility and was so excited that it sent us this time-lapse video of its construction and these photos of the finished process. Pagani has every reason to be talking up its new stomping grounds, which it describes as a mix of technology and tradition. It was designed in-house by the Pagani design studio. Horacio Pagani's sons, Christopher and Leonardo, led the project.
In this time-lapse video you can see the construction from beginning to end. Watching the entire building be built from the ground up in just about two minutes is pretty incredible.
We aren’t big architecture buffs and won’t attempt to try and break down the juxtaposition between new and old here. What we will say is that the new Pagani factory and showroom looks like a must-visit for tourists. A tour of the showroom starts at €15 ($15.88) and a full factory tour runs €35 ($37.06). We can think of worse ways to spend $15 than by staring at some of the most beautiful cars ever designed.
