Pagani Huayra

Pagani Huayra

If you’re in the market for a new car and have roughly $1.4 million to spend, then your option list just grew by one. This Pagani Huayra is currently for sale in Greenwich, Connecticut and is one of the first — if not the first — Huayras to be sold inside the U.S. You’ll recall Pagani opened up the avenue for Huayras to make their way Stateside just a few weeks ago.

Hand-built in Modena, Italy, the supercar is flown to the U.S. for importation. Its allure comes from its AMG-sourced, twin-turbocharged, 6.0-liter, V-12 engine cranking out 730 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed sequential gearbox controls the action. The mid-engine machine is capable of holding corners at 1.66 g of lateral acceleration and hitting 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. Its top speed is an outrageous 230 mph.

This particular example is has its carbon-fiber body exposed for all to see and its interior is covered in red leather. With only has 35 miles on its odometer, this Huayra is ready for a long life of track days and garaged nights. Even with its high price tag, we can’t imagine it sitting on the dealer lot very long. These cars are outrageously rare, with Pagani only building a handful each year.

Pagani Automobili has been officially launched in North America. It’s been 22 years since Horacio Pagani established its very own company in Modena, Italy, and 15 years since the very first Zonda left the workshop, and Pagani may now officially sell its supercars in the United States.

And by "supercars" we mean the breathtaking Huayra , the upcoming Huayra Roadster and all the limited edition and bespoke versions that are set to follow. All these V-12-powered rockets can be acquired through the company’s U.S. subsidiary, Pagani WorldWide, across the entire North American continent.

Although U.S. deliveries of the Huayra have only just begun, the said supercar is already familiar with American soil as an import, and a very successful one for that matter. According to Pagani , 40 percent of Huayra sales this year have been accounted by U.S. customers, making North America its largest market. Now that the Huayra can be picked up from specialized dealerships, we expect Pagani to flourish even more in the United States.

While the aging Pagani Zonda continues to receive one-off, special-edition models , the Huayra has yet to spawn one, not to mention that the Roadster version is still in the works as of June 2014. But fear not, the Huayara is soon to receive the love it deserves from Pagani in the form of a Nurburgring Edition.

That’s the word from a TeamSpeed forum user, who got the chance to sit down and talk to Pagani test driver Davide Testi. The Italian ace had no trouble in spilling the beans about the Huayra’s production plans, and, apparently, they include a limited-edition, track-focused version set to carry the Nurburgring Edition moniker. Only 15 to 25 units will be built, making it one of the rarest supercars ever created.

No additional details are available on this mysterious Huayra, including whether it will be track-exclusive like the Zonda R or not, but expect this rocket to wear a serious aerodynamic kit consisting of a reworked front fascia, a massive rear diffuser and a huge rear wing on the edge of its rear hood. Interior changes will most likely include FIA-compliant racing seats and harnesses, a race-spec steering wheel and even a roll cage.

As with most track-prepped cars, the Huayra Nurburgring Edition is also set to go on a severe diet, with both the chassis and body to ditch more than just a few pounds. Naturally, the beastly 6.0-liter, V-12 heart powering the wheels by means of 730 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque will become even more potent. Expect 0-to-60 mph times to drop below the 2.6-second mark and brace yourselves for a lightning-fast Nurburgring lap record.

Nurburgring Edition aside, the source also reveals that Pagani is looking to build 110 Huayra coupes and 110 roadsters. We have a hunch these will be followed by a bevy of special edition and unique versions.

There are cars that you can drive fast and then there are cars that you NEED to drive fast. The Pagani Huayra belongs in the latter category. The Italian supercar is one of the rare exotics in the world that blissfully combines opulent luxury with incredible performance capabilities. So when you’re behind the wheel of one, as this video shows, there’s a responsibility to push the Huayra to its absolute limit.

Watch the video shot by Marchettino and you’ll understand what we’re talking about. Look at how the Huayra’s interior proudly shouts the meeting of the minds between technology and luxury . That’s not something a lot of other cars can boast of.

But more importantly, listen to the unnerving shriek of that AMG-sourced V-12 engine that belts out 700 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque and it’s easy to get caught up in the undeniable thrill ride that comes with pushing the Huayra to its limits.

There’s no other way to drive this Italian supercar than unleashing all that power on a race track. Just be mindful of trying to handle it because, as the video shows, it can go sideways on you that quickly if you’re not too careful.

In the three years since the Pagani Huayra made its debut, Pagani has been a little gun shy on building special-edition models of the supercar. It was a far departure from the Huarya’s predecessor, the Zonda , which had its fair share of special edition models. But according to Autoblog, that’s about to change because Pagani is already planning to build a roadster version of the Huayra, and its coming in the next 24 months.

It’s still not a special-edition model like the ones the Zonda had, but it does give the Huayra that sort of variety it’s been missing since making its debut in 2011. Pagani spokesman Luca Venturi confirmed the company’s plans, and while he stopped short of spilling all the beans about the Huayra Roadster , all signs seem to point to the car receiving the same mechanical features as its coupe counterpart.

So if you’re wondering, there’s a good chance that the Huayra Roadster will come with the same AMG -sourced 6.0-liter, twin-turbo, V-12 engine that produces 730 horsepower. A seven-speed, sequential transmission is also expected to be part of the mechanical framework of the supercar , as is the likelihood of a folding hard-top like the one we saw on the Zonda Roadster that debuted back in 2005.

It’s a welcome development for fans of the Pagani Huayra and that includes us. We still held out hope that something like a Huayra Roadster was in the pipeline even if it became apparent that Pagani wasn’t in a rush to build one. But now that there’s confirmation of it, we’ll definitely keep an eye on its development.

We’re just hoping that the two-year timeframe is accurate, because like everybody else, we’ve already waited for the Pagani Huayra Roadster long enough.

The Pagani Huayra continues to be one of the most mental supercars in the world, and even if its in prototype form as this lime green piece of awesomeness is, the Huayra still commands an audience like very few supercars can.

This particular model, which was captured by Marchettino, is actually labeled as Prototype 3, the same vehicle the Italian company used in the development of its electrical components. But whereas it used to don a more subdued matte-black finish with gold wheels, Pagani decided to make it look a lot more, shall we say, "electric."

So the company sought Car Wrapping Milano to give the Huayra Prototype 3 a bright lime green wrap to go with the original matte black accents around the rear bumper and diffuser area. Matching lime green brake calipers were also installed, finishing off a dramatic and colorful change for the Huayra test car.

The rest is nothing short of incredible and probably justifies the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter AMG -sourced V10 engine under its hood even more. Nothing speaks to a car’s bombastic 720-horsepower output more than an equally bombastic lime green wrap that instantly makes it the envy of all other Huayras.

A Pagani test driver recently gave his young son an experience he probably will never forget. Ok, that’s a stretch because we don’t know a lot of adults who remember what they were doing when they were three years old. Still, sitting on your dad’s lap while he drives a Pagani Huayra around a short custom circuit will likely give you chills to last a lifetime.

That was the little treat this little tyke was given when he not only got a chance to smell the Huayra’s interior, but he also got a pretty good seat to experience the unbridled power of this insane supercar .

When he should probably be at home playing with his diecast Huayra, this little one is actually sitting on an actual Huayra getting a first-hand experience on what 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of tire smoking torque feels like.

You’re a lucky one, young man. Cherish this moment because you’re likely not going to experience it again anytime soon.

For those that are concerned for the safety of the young child; there is no need to worry because this is a professional driver on a closed course.

When Horatio Pagani started Pagani Automobili , he turned the act of supercar creation into an art form. Thanks to an obsessive attention to detail and an unequaled eye for design, Pagani burst onto the supercar scene with an immediate hit: the Zonda C12. Now Pagani is looking to repeat the Zonda’s success with its newest car, the Huayra . To announce the arrival of this incredible new machine, Prestige Imports in Miami Florida has teamed up with Cinemotive productions to create a teaser video for the new car.

The quick two-minute film shows some great detail shots of the Huayra’s body and interior and finishes with some exciting driving; complete with high-speed blasts and tire smoking drifts.

I could think of much worse ways to let people know you have the newest and hottest supercar on your lot.

The video is a bit old, it was released about nine-months ago, but with only 20,000 views we realized this gem has not made it to most of the car fans out there. We just can’t let something this awesome go unnoticed, so we are passing it on to you.

Now this is a rare treat folks; a 11-minute monologue by Horacio Pagani himself about the history of the brand he’s created. It, of course, all begins with Pagani’s youth when he would help his father with his cars, then moved into him building a dune buggy, then onto developing his own open-wheel competition car.

From there, the rest was history, as he took on the lowest-level job in Lamborghini ’s body shop, and became part of a team that the automaker challenged to build a composite chassis. From this came the Countach Evoluzione, which was simply a test car that was later purposely crashed to test the safety of this new composite frame.

This amazing story just keeps on going, and gets more interesting every minute. It is so amazing how well Mr. Pagani can outline his life with such accuracy and detail, and keep my attention despite having to read the English translation below. Honestly, though, car is a universal language, so half the time I grasped the concept just from his emotion and the video.

Simply an amazing video featuring one of the true rags-to-riches stories of the supercar world.

Pagani Huayra is one supercar that continues to make a huge impression on us, regardless of how many times we see it. The only problem is that up to this point, we haven’t gotten the chance to get behind the wheel and push it to its limits. Lucky for us, we can enjoy this great video that shows us what the Huayra is really capable of.

The Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-sourced 6.0-liter, V-12 twin-turbo engine that delivers an outstanding 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of torque. This is enough to sprint the Huayra from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 230 mph.

This video was shot on the Monza race track, Italy and includes close fly by and acceleration. So, turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy the fantastic sound the Huayra makes.
