Such exaggerated claims of that title might fly over the head of other auto manufacturers, but not with Pagani . After all, the Italian automaker is most famous for their exclusive products that cost well over a million dollars.
So when they come out with a man bag - yep, a man bag - you know that it would feel completely out of place in the shelves of K-Mart. Looking at this fashionable money hole, the Pagani man bag draws inspiration from the shapes, styles, and the materials used on the company’s pride and joy, the Pagani Huayra.
A plethora of high-end materials were also used in the making of the bag; looking at it, there’s high-end leather, aluminum, and hold on...are there some touches of carbon fiber too?
With Pagani, you can never be all too surprised if there really is carbon fiber on that bag. Still no word on how much this man bag will cost, but rest assured, there will probably be a lot digits attached to it.
The 2012 Summer Olympics are in full swing now and medals are quickly adding up. We started wondering what about the varying cars of the world? There is no auto racing in the Olympics and a love of awesome cars is one thing that is shared throughout the entire world. So why not include them?
Here at Topspeed, we felt it was time to give our 4-wheeled friends a fair chance and display the top supercars from each of the countries participating in the 2012 Summer Games – those that produce supercars. So let’s have a look at what these countries have to offer. You may be surprised to find out what countries produce some awesome supercars and what ones don’t produce any at all.
We stand to learn a lot about the world of supercars while putting this piece together, so we are certain you will learn a ton right along with us.

As a result, a desperate owner in the U.S. took matters into his own hands and created his very own Pagani Zonda replica, which was recently spotted broken down in Mountain View, California.
The pictures captured simply scream "replica," as the dimensions are all wrong, despite the fact that this particular unit is far off from the real thing. No specific details have been released about this particular unit, but based on the huge number of Ferrari replica’s designed around the Toyota MR2 , it’s likely that this vehicle utilized a similar affordable sports car and has been designed around it.
If true, that means this Zonda replica would be gravely underpowered as the Toyota MR2 only featured a tiny 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, producing just 138hp at 6,400 rpm and only reached a top speed of 129 mph. Compare this to the Pagani Zonda F however, and the true extent of the differences become clear.
The Zonda featured a 7.3-liter V-12 engine sourced from AMG and produced around 650hp, helping the lightweight hypercar sprint to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and onto a claimed top speed of 220 mph.
When it comes to offering cool reviews for supercars, Chris Harris does an amazing job. Throw in the fact that the supercar is the Pagani Huayra , and the review can’t be anything less than stellar. Just take a look at this 15 minute video to see what we are talking about.
In this review, Harris discusses the good and the even better about the Huayra. Then, of course, he pushes the car to its limits to see what it can really do, which is a lot. You don’t have to trust us though, watch the video to see it for yourself, but turn up your volume first!
As a reminder, the Huayra is powered by a naturally aspirated, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that delivers a massive 700 HP and 730 lbs-ft of torque. This output is more than enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 220 mph.
So for any budding automotive engineers out there, this video is perfect for you.
During the clip, EVO founder Harry Metcalfe gets hands-on with the Huayra and looks at a variety of the small components which help make the Huayra as unique as it is. He goes on to reveal that, according to Horacio Pagani himself, the Huayra is constructed out of approximately 4,700 different components, while its predecessor, the Zonda, was built with ‘just’ 3,000 pieces.
Additionally, the video aims to prove that the Huayra really is worth its incredible $1.3 million price tag, and after watching it, we’re inclined to agree that the level of detail which goes into creating every Pagani far exceeds any other manufacturers we’re aware of.
As a quick refresher, the Huayra features an incredible twin-turbo, 6.0-liter AMG sourced V12 engine delivering an impressive 730HP and 730lb-ft of torque. This engine is then mated to an advanced seven-speed sequential transmission courtesy of Xtrac, and consequently, the Huayra can hit 60 mph in around 3.0 seconds before hitting an impressive top speed of 220mph.
Prior to Pagani officially unveiling the Zonda R Evolution to the public at the ongoing Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the U.K, GHPixx managed to capture the Evo at what’s sure to be its new home in the coming months, the Nordschleife.
Nevertheless, this is a mighty spot and in addition to the Zonda R Evo doing the rounds at the ‘Ring, a Pagani Huayra was also seen shadowing the Zonda R Evolution, suggesting that the Italian company may be planning to run both cars around ‘Green hell’ with record lap times in mind in the coming days and weeks.
Sounding just as incredible as the ‘standard’ Zonda R , the Evolution variant is said to produce 760BHP, although some sites have claimed output to be as high as 800HP from its modified 6.0-liter AMG-sourced V12 engine. Whichever it is, the Evolution is unquestionably faster than its predecessor and should eclipse the R’s record-setting Nurburgring lap time captured a couple of years ago .
The Pagani Zonda R Evolution is basically an even more extreme version of the already-insane R , and promises to be substantially faster than the standard car, meaning a possible Nordschleife run could see the new car eclipse the regular R’s record-breaking lap of 6:47.
Taking a leaf out of the book of the Zonda 760 RS and 760 LH, the new Zonda R Evolution delivers, you guessed it, 760BHP from its modified 6.0-liter AMG-sourced V12 engine. Additional changes have been implemented throughout the suspension set up, although Pagani has yet to reveal any official details about these changes.
What we can confirm however, is that the Zonda R Evolution features a dramatically re-designed body with various new aerodynamic aids now being featured on the car. These include additional vents at the front end, including a more aggressively-styled splitter and larger winglets. Furthermore, the rear also features aerodynamic improvements with a second small wing now situated below the larger rear wing, which has also been improved.
Follow the jump to check out an awesome video of the car revving, and stay tuned for the official release of the Zonda R Evolution in the coming days.
We caught wind of the Pagani Zonda R EVO less than two weeks ago and YouTube user, Marchettino, has already managed to capture the special Pagani Zonda on video.
The Zonda R EVO is set to be unveiled next week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It will feature new suspensions, while its V12 AMG engine will deliver a total of 771 HP. It looks like this supercar is ready to set a new record at the Nurburgring.
Here’s what Marchettino stated about his video: "At a moment I stopped recording because I felt a bit guilty so I gave some help to my friends that were pushing the car to the showroom. The debut to the EVO will take place in the hills of Goodwood, I’ve been very lucky to see and film it as first."
If you needed more proof that our favorite Youtube user, Marchettino, does an amazing job, here it is: he caught not one, not two, but eleven Pagani models in one place. The video was shot at the 8th Vanishing Point, the secret Pagani event.
A lot of the Paganis presented at the show were Huayra models and this makes the video even better. Also, next to all these impressive number of Paganis, a great number of AMGs were also present. Enjoy the video and let us know if you would have loved to be there!
"Enjoy the walkaround of the insane lineup! It was truly awesome to see so many Pagani’s from different ages all together, from the C12 S to the Cinque , Tricolore , R and even the orange Prototipe 2 that now has the configuration of the Zonda 750!"
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.
