Our favorite Youtube user, Marchettino, has provided us with yet another tantalizing video! This time, he has caught a Pagani Huayra as it starts up its V12 engine and then does a full throttle acceleration down the road with a wheelspin, followed by a couple of downshifts! There are some pretty amazing shots, but it seems as though that is always the case with Marchettino!
As a reminder, the Pagani Huayra is powered by a 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that delivers an impressive 700 HP and 730 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an X-trac seven-speed sequential transmission and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds and up to an amazing top speed of 220 mph!
Before anyone gets too excited, the Huayra is limited to only 20 units and will be priced at $1.3 million each.
Few names in the automotive world have such a ring to them as the Pagani Zonda does. The Zonda remained in production for the better part of a decade, and was lucky enough to be offered in a large array of different variants, including the range topping Pagani Zonda 760RS recently ordered by an unknown Chilean businessman.
It’s successor, the Huayra, may not have such a seductive name as the Zonda, but Pagani has promised that it’s a complete evolution from the Zonda. It features a huge array of new features, most predominantly the brand new AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V12 twin turbocharged engine which can pumps out 730HP in stock form. When combined with the light overall weight of the car, the Huayra promises Bugatti Veyron levels of performance.
In their latest road test, EVO magazine became the world’s first magazine to test the Huayra privately, thanks in part to its close affiliation with the brand, as Harry Metcalfe, EVO’s founder actually owns one of the very first Zonda’s produced.
Despite being less than five minutes long, the video displays some incredible driving shots of the Huayra and highlights the active aerodynamics to a level not seen in previous videos of the Huayra.
The journo testing the car continually mentions the new seven-speed sequential transmission and how when it’s warmed up, it’s truly a work of art. However, don’t for one second think the Huayra is perfect, as a few flaws are pointed out during the review.

About a month ago, Pagani unveiled a pretty cool documentary explaining the technology behind the Huayra. And because people were thoroughly impressed with it, the company decided to offer a new documentary, this time explaining the history of the very successful company.
Parts 1-4 have already been unveiled and talk about the beginnings of the company. Part One talks about Pagani founder Horacio Pagani and reveals a collage of personal photos, while Part Two explains how the company was founded in 1999 and talks about the first vehicle produced by Pagani: the Zonda C12. Part Three goes into years 2005-2008 of the company and the production of the Zonda F and Part Four handles model year 2009 with the Zonda R. Finally, Part 5 covers the 2009-2011 model years with the Zonda Cinque.
Parts Two, Three, Four and Five can be found after the jump. Enjoy! Full story
Pagani’s latest supercar, the Huayra, will be built at the company’s plant in Modena - about 15 minutes away from Ferrari and Lamborghini. Interesting, no? If you do a little math you will be amazed by the impressive number of supercar you can meet in Modena!
But lets face it: not many of us will have the chance to arrive in the area! In this car we have to be thankful to the guys from Drive who have revealed a pretty impressive video shot inside the Pagani world.
JF Musial explores why this small super car company is setting a new standard for how exotic vehicles should be designed and produced. Interviewed is company founder Horacio Pagani next two his latest creation, the Huayra.
Enjoy the video! You will have a lot to learn from it!
This 14-minute documentary features the Pagani Huayra and the companies that helped make it the beautiful combination of art and technology it has become. The video explores the Huayra’s air and wind inspired carbon fiber and titanium body design, the hand-built 6.0L twin-turbo AMG V12, the hand-assembled MHG custom tuned exhaust, the tailor-made Dani Group leather interior, and the 1000 components that are made by ASPA, including the Huayra emblem that is cut from a solid block of aluminum in a 24-hour process.
The Huayra is built with what are most likely the highest standards in the industry. Every part of this car is produced to utter perfection. Perhaps the most beautiful piece of technology on the Huayra is the active aerodynamics system: The car’s computer system monitors its behavior, and aerodynamic surfaces on all four corners of the car adjust accordingly, with the back two surfaces even acting as emergency brakes to assist the lightweight Brembos at high speed. This is not just a supercar; it is the supercar that the Ferrari F12berlinetta and Lamborghini Aventador dream about at night.
The Pagani Huayra’s V12 engine makes 700hp and 740lb-ft. of torque. The 2,970 lb. supercar is capable of hitting 230 mph, though Pagani Automobili focuses more on dynamic driving than top speed. The Huayra was supposed to hit the U.S. market this year, but the NHTSA forced a delay by blocking U.S. sales until advanced airbag systems are installed in every car. Pagani argued that implementing the advanced airbags would cost millions, but ultimately decided to spend the extra production money. The safer Pagani Huayra will likely go on sale in America in 2013 and is expected to cost a cool $1.4 million.

The introduction of the Pagani Huayra came and went rather quickly, and although videos of the super car have been sprouting all over the internet, it’s nice to see that Pagani was working on a special edition to revamp its exquisiteness. The Huayra Carbon Edition joined the Huayra White Edition in the short list of special models offered by the Italian sports car manufacturer.
The Carbon Fiber Edition obviously uses tons of carbon fiber to set it apart from the standard, but that’s where the differences end. The model has dropped its usual paint job in favor of carbon fiber coating, with the same material also being used for many of the interior elements starting with the dashboard and going up to accents on the premium leather seats.
Aside from the carbon fiber extravaganza, the Huayra Carbon Edition maintains all of the standard Huayra’s luxurious amenities, including its twin-turbocharged V12 engine. This engine is good for 700 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque and in the standard model, will sprint the super car from 0 to 60mph in just 3.3 seconds up to a top speed of 230 mph.
Pagani is making some serious waves at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show with the showcase of not one, but two special edition Huayra super cars.
One of the Huayra’s is called the White Edition, joining the Carbon Edition at the Geneva floor. Though not as eye-catching as the carbon fiber clad Huayra Carbon Edition, the Huayra White Edition is nonetheless another example of how smoking hot the Italian supercar is.
Best we can tell, the pristine white finish of this particular Huayra matches well with the naked carbon fiber body panels on the car. Add that to the fact that this is one of the fastest machines on the planet and it makes the car that much more drool-worthy.
And just in case you’ve forgotten what its capable of, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0 liter Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V12 engine that produces a staggering 700 horsepower and puts out a whopping 730 lb/ft of torque. Those ridiculous figures allow the Huayra White Edition to cover 0-62 mph in just 3.3 seconds while hitting a top speed north of 220 mph.
