The latest video from XCAR Films features one of our favorite supercars ever: the Pagani Huayra . You all know what difficult is to at least see the Huayra , imagine how tough it is to actually get the chance to drive one. Well, Alex Goy had the chance to get close and personal with the supercar and took it to the roads of Northern Italy to see this magnificent beast on its home turf.
As a reminder, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter, V-12 twin-turbo engine borrowed from the SL 65 AMG Black Series. This engine delivers an outstanding 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to sprint the Huayra from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 230 mph.
Only 20 units were produced and the price was $1.3 million. The model will also get a Roadster version for those customers with a few more dollars in the pocket.
Youtube user Shmee150 managed to catch another great video, this time if a Pagani Huayra along with a Zonda S on the race track.
The two cars were caught at the Goodwood Motor Circuit for a filming session and along with the short racing session, the video also shows them revving their V-12 powerplants, plus a number of flybys down the main straight.
As a reminder, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet. This output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 220 mph. On the other hand, Zonda S is a little bit less powerful with an output of just 540 horsepower. Even so, it still sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
Check out the video to see which of the two models sounds the best!
In the latest episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman from MotorTrend heads to Modena, Italy to drive one of the most expensive cars in the world: the uncompromising Pagani Huayra . As you probable remember, Pagani named Huyara after the Peruvian God of wind, and it’s the best supercar Horacio Pagani ever built.
The Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 hand built by AMG that produces a staggering 730 horsepower. This output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 220 mph.
Check out the video to see where Lieberman ranks the Huayra in the pantheon of great sports cars. You may be surprised to discover just how amazing a supercar the Huayra is. We’re pretty certain that you will enjoy every second of this video.
The only problem is that the Huayra is priced from $1.3 million.
About the Pagani Huayra we know a lot of things, except maybe the most important one: price and optional features. However, a leaked document is now also disclosing these features, so all we need now are the money to buy it.
A base Huayra is priced at €1,050,000 - or about $1,4 million at the current exchange rates. Of course this can be considered a reasonable price, when you consider the amount of power, the price for the competition and the fact that you are indeed buying a Pagani supercar.
However, things can change literally when you take a look at the options prices. For example a full carbon body work is priced at €112,500 - or about $151,700; chancing the color of the wheels will add another €3,500, or $4,700, while adding a premium leather interior will cost you an additional €7,900, or $10,650. So, with a few updates here and there the price for your Huayra can easily go up to about $2 million - which is not so cool.
To remind you, for the money you will get a supercar powered by an AMG sourced V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. With this power the Huayra will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 230 mph.

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.
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.

A lot of folks expected Pagani to introduce a new model at the Geneva Motor Show. But that didn’t happen. Instead, the Italian automaker showcased a new and extremely expensive option that customers can add to the Pagani Huayra.
Collaborating with Sonus Faber, Pagani introduced the custom Huayra sound system that was designed by the two companies to fit perfectly in line with the lightweight philosophy of the Italian supercar.
The overall setup is pretty remarkable for a sound system. It comes with carbon-fiber speaker cones, which is no small feat for those who designed and developed it.
In addition, the sound system also comes with neodymium magnets and an advanced amplifier system that results in a staggering 1,200 watts of power - three times as much as the "regular" sound system already installed in the Huayra.
That’s a lot of audio power to complement a car that already boasts of a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of tire smoking torque.

In anticipation of the Zonda tribute film being released next week, Harris has unveiled a little teaser video featuring the two crown jewels of Pagani’ line-up, the Zonda S and the Huayra .
Just thinking about the film is already getting our hearts pumping. The Zonda and the Huayra are two of the finest supercars to have run the streets of the world in recent years. Any chance we have of getting to know more about these two exotics, as well as the people behind the creation of it, is something worth paying close attention to.
And if Drive’s Inside Koenigsegg web series is any indication, we’re going to get a real treat with this film.

In the world of supercars, you have many different players. Ferrari is the technological wonder child, while Lamborghini is that school bully that developed a bit of common sense with age.Aston Martin is the sophisticated gentlemen spy that can charm any living thing with a single word. Then, you come to Pagani, the new boy. These cars don’t feature any sophistication or old world charm. Yet, their radical designs and outrageous performance have placed them in the top tier of the supercar tree and now, we have a new version, the C9 .
In the world of follow-ups, this one is massive. Sort of like the Godfather II following the Godfather. The Zonda was the car that made Pagani into the company you see today. Automotive journalists loved it and the base version spawned many different special editions and one-offs like the Zonda F and Cinque . It was like nothing ever seen before. The Zonda’s development was evolutionary, but the C9 that will replace it will be revolutionary.
UPDATE 03/15/2013: Pagani has unveiled a new promo video for its Huayra supercar. Called simply "God of Wind" the new video is just an attempt to bring the supercar back to our attention. Enjoy!
Hit the jump for more details on the Pagani Huayra.
YouTube user, Marchettino, has already brought us two amazing video from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but it seems he was a real presence in Geneva and has more video to reveal. The latest video he posted presents the new Pagani Huayra equipped with the over-teased Sonus Faber sound system. The model presented at the show was also equipped with the optional Track Pack, which includes a new carbon-fiber front spoiler that delivers additional downforce.
The new Sonus Faber sound system has been specially designed for the Huayra and it features new carbon cones, neodymium magnets and speaker diaphragms in a special ultra-light carbon fiber. It delivers a total of 1,200 watts, which is triple the amount of power when compared to the audio system currently offered in the Huayra.
Don’t get us wrong, we like the new sound system offered by Pagani, but we were hoping for something bigger.
When Pagani unveiled the first teaser video for the Geneva Motor Show, we were expecting something big for the show, but the second teaser proved us wrong. Now it’s official: Pagani will not offer any special-edition supercar for the show; all we are going to see is a new sound system developed by Sonus Faber.
This new sound system has been specially designed for the Huayra and it features new carbon cones, neodymium magnets and speaker diaphragms in a special ultra-light carbon fiber. This material helps the sound system deliver extreme rigidity, but in the same time they keep the total weight to the minimum. The new Sonus Faber delivers a total of 1,200 watts, which is triple amount of power when compared to the audio system currently offered in the Huayra.
Thanks to the new system, both passenger and driver will enjoy a rich sound experience. The system also allows the customer to configure the Huayra cabin depending on his personal needs.
Overall, we are impressed by this new sound system, but did Pagani really need to tease a freaking sound system so much? Oh well, guess it was important to them…
