After seeing luxury car marques like Mercedes, Porsche and Aston Martin expand their offerings by building boats, Pagani didn’t just see their rivals, they raised ‘em — about 40,000 feet.

As part of a new partnership that was unveiled at this year’s European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, Pagani created a new cabin design for the Airbus ACJ319neo.

Dubbed the Infinito, the design incorporates the same carbon-titanium composite that’s found in the chassis of the Huayra and puts it in the eight-seat plane’s seats, tables and frames instead.

Designer Horacio Pagani didn’t stop there and outfitted the cabin with supercar-style touches like “curves inspired by nature,” sculpted aluminium fittings that hold LEDs for mood lighting and “shell-shaped valances and walls” that go from opaque to transparent by touching a button.

A key component of the cabin you won’t find in the Huayra is the “sky ceiling,” a new feature that allows the roof to display a live view of the sky above the aircraft as well as other images.

“In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards,” said Airbus managing director Benoit Defforge.

There’s no word on when the Infinito-equipped ACJ319neos will be hitting the friendly skies, but if they need test passengers, we’ll bring the peanuts.
