Geneva 2011 – Pagani Huayra presentation video –

Pagani Huayra

It’s the car who’s name Clarkson can’t pronounce (not that he tried). It’s the car that Pagani created after the Zonda, so we were expecting something that would leave us flabbergasted, something that would make us stare in amazement and feel chills down our spines. And this is what we got.

The Pagani Huayra is nothing short of spectacular! It was named after the Quechua word for “wind”, so it has something magical. Its body is carved in carbon fiber and the chassis is all carbo-tanium, so it has the heart of a tiger. The gullwing doors shows that it wants to fly and the four adjustable flaps are ready to operate independently to improve downforce as needed, so it knows how to keep its feet firmly planted on the ground.

Huayra is giving its main competitor, the Bugatti Veyron SS, a run for its money, because the new monster from Pagani has the same torque-to-weight ratio as the german hypercar. Under the bonnet, an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine generates an overwhelming 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS) and 1000 Nm (737 Nm) of torque. A seven-speed sequential transmission propelles all Huayra’s 1,350kg (2,975 lb) from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and hits a top speed of 230 mph.

Cost? Start writing a check for £1,000,000. But I feel like this car will be worth every penny. Just look at the amazing video that Pagani put together for the presentation of its new supercar:
