We don’t really know if Michael Bay is trying to bring a dream car garage to the set of “Transformers 4,” but judging from the cars that have been announced as joining the movie, you’d think that the director chanced upon gold bouillon and is in the middle of the craziest automotive splurge in history.
A host of supercars have already been lined up for the movie, including: the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and the Lamborghini Aventador . Now, Bay is introducing another one: the Pagani Huayra .
With these recent announcements, we’ve all but given up on deciphering what other cars are going to be part of “Transformers 4.” At this point, we’re just going to sit back and wait for Bay to reveal the remaining cast of cars.
We already knew that “Transformers 4” is going to feature some of the world’s hottest cars in full display, but we certainly didn’t see the Huayra coming.

As the successor to the universally loved Pagani Zonda, the Huayra looks more like an actual road supercar than the track-inspired Zonda. In designing the Huayra, Pagani made extensive use of carbon fiber, while also tapping into its creative design team to build an impressive-looking exotic.
The most obvious styling cues are the gullwing doors, which indicate that this supercar means business. The large rear wing in the Zonda isn’t present on the Huayra, while the squared off mesh grille has been tossed aside in favor of a more elliptical opening and we can clearly see that the high-mounted barrel exhaust tips remain.
And all of that doesn’t even take into account the Huayra’s AMG-sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of tire-smoking torque. Those numbers are good enough to allow the car to hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 230 mph.
