Pagani Huayra : Sneak Preview from eGarage on Vimeo.

It’s been a while since we last saw the new Pagani Huayra in action, but now the time has come to refresh our memories on what a stupendous supercar it really is. This video of the Huayra in action was shot by the guys over at eGarage and if you ask us, they have done an amazing job capturing the highlights of this automotive wonder. The best part is that they have promised to release more footage in the near future.

Until then, a little refresher on Pagani’s new pride and joy. The Huayra is powered by a V12 engine that delivers a total of 700 HP and 730 lb-ft of torque. The supercar will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds on its way up to a top speed of over 220 mph. The motor is connected to a single clutch transmission.

Now, sit back and enjoy some real engine music!

Marchettino always seems to be at the right place, at the right time. Mix that with his tremendous skill on the computer, and you have amazing videos that capture the most spectacular vehicles on the market. His latest video shows off the best sounds of all the Pagani models he has filmed over the year. He says the video is a tribute to Horacio Pagani, "a person I really admire for how he started his career with almost nothing, and now produces some of the best and most exclusive supercars in the world."

The video includes the engine sounds of models like the Zonda Cinque , the Zonda F , and the Zonda R , as well as the latest Huayra supercar. The cars were caught both on the track and on public streets with brutal accelerations, launches, loud revving scenes, and more! All you have to do is turn up the volume and enjoy!

There are very few cars in this world that can keep up with the Pagani Zonda , but even with its AMG-powered 7.3-liter engine that produces 555 horsepower and 563 lb/ft of torque, it isn’t the most powerful car in the Pagani family.

That title belongs to the Pagani Huayra and its AMG-powered 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that generates 700 horsepower and 740 lb/ft of torque.

This video, courtesy of EVO Diaries, features the two Pagani supercars partaking in a nice little joyride on an isolated road. What’s fascinating about this 53-second video, apart from getting a good look at the Zonda’s fancy interior, is how much more meat the Huayra has over its older sister. Check out the video around the 30-second mark and you’re going to see the Huayra’s serious power as it breaks away from the Zonda when the road straightens out.

Like we said, we’d take very few cars over the Zonda, but if there’s one car that will completely change our mind, it’s the mind-blowing Pagani Huayra.

The Chinese automotive market is growing bigger by the day and automakers everywhere are taking advantage of this growing market by throwing a number of special editions their way. One type of vehicle that is ripping through the streets of China is the super car. Anything from Ferrari Ferrari to Pagani Pagani to Lamborghini is making its way over to the land of Dragons and Emperors, and this video was created to show off a number of these vehicles.

Watching this video may incite some ever growing jealousy for the people lucky enough to get behind the wheel of these bad boys. The supercars are all part of the Chinese Sportscar Club (SCC), which got together on an airstrip to show off their rides. The list of the supercars is intense, including a Ferrari Enzo , a Pagani Zonda F/R and Cinque , a Mercedes SLR , a Mercedes SLS , a Ferrari F430 , a Ferrari 458 Italia , tons of Lamborghini models, an Aston Martin , and our favorite, the Koenigsegg Agera .

The sheer monetary value of the collected supercars is enough to induce drool.

This video is the automotive equivalent of a perfect mix-tape. Ask anybody with any passion for exotics and they’ll tell you that one of their favorite things about these high-powered machines is the engine start-up.

In some cases, it’s the push of a button. In other cases, it’s turning the keys in the ignition. Whatever set-up an exotic has, the glorious roar of that engine coming to life is as good as it gets.

Naturally, somebody has come up with the genius idea of compiling 22 of the most mouth-watering super cars on the planet and capturing these cars spring to life one growling roar at a time.

Just in case you’re wondering about the line-up of supercars in this video, there are Lamborghinis , Ferraris , a Ford GT40 , and even a Pagani Zonda . The video is only a little under two minutes long, giving you enough time to serenade your senses with the unmistakable noise that only exotics can provide.

When the Pagani Zonda was still around, the rich and mighty had no problem asking for customer-spec versions of the mighty supercar. The Zonda gave birth to a number of these "one-offs", including the HH , the Absolut , and the RAK to name a few.

Now, it appears that the Zonda’s successor, the Huayra , is about to be given a similar treatment after Pagani revealed the first customer-spec Huayra is ready to be presented its excited new owner in Asia. This particular Huayra - Chassis number 003 - will be sporting a silver color scheme to go with a set of spankingly awesome Gold Zonda R style wheels.

Chassis numbers 001 and 002 are being used as the official Huayra auto show cars so you can be sure that whoever ordered this customer-spec Huayra will really have first dibs on the very first "one-off" Huayra.

The folks over at GT Spirit took a photo of the one-off Huayra in all its silver-and-gold glory. And just in case you’ve already forgotten what this supercar is capable of, the Huayra boasts of a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 811 lb/ft of torque while also capable of hitting 0-62 mph in just 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 235 mph.

The Pagani Zonda Roadster F made its debut at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. It was similar to the coupe version, except that it featured a removable carbon fiber roof and canvas side curtains. It was made very clear by Horatio Pagani at that time that it would only be built in 25 units and, unfortunately, the day has come when the final unit has been pieced together.

The last Pagani Zonda F Roadster unit features a full on carbon fiber body colored in purple and black. The interior takes the drama a bit further with pink leather and carbon trim.

Under the hood, the Zonda F Roadster features the same 7.3 liter Mercedes-Benz AMG V12 engine that delivers a total of 680 HP. The hypercar weighs only 2711 lbs and makes the 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Top speed halts at an impressive 214 mph.

Now that Pagani has closed the chapter on the Zonda F, they will switch their focus to the new Huayra , and all of its intended variations .

It’s hard to top the last video of Need For Speed: The Run , especially when it featured steaming Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. For their part, though, the people over at NFS have just released the latest promo video for their soon-to-be-released racing game.

No, it doesn’t come with any scantily-clad foxes, but what it does feature are two supercars considered two of the most desirable exotics on the market today: the McLaren MP4-12C and the Pagani Huayra .

As always, the video offers plenty of breathtaking racing between the two supercars with a short and ultimately crash-tastic cameo of an out-of-its-element police car.

But the real highlight of the video is the race between the MP4-12C and the Huayra . Here’s a spoiler, though: if you’re a fan of either one of these cars, then prepare to weep as one of them gets thrown off a cliff.

We’re not kidding.

In its constant desire to come out with the unexpected, Pagani has found a new way to completely blow us away. As if the new Huayra supercar isn’t mind-blowing enough, we now learn from Horacio Pagani himself that the seven-figure supercar comes with some new quirks we’ve never heard before, particularly the keys to the car.

Unlike standard ignition keys, the Huayra’s key is actually a miniature model of the vehicle cast in aluminum, which, incidentally, is the same material found on the wheels of the car. Say that again, right?

The aluminum key, which a lot of people might mistake for a toy, splits into two parts when opened. On one end, you have the actual key to the ignition of the supercar while the other end is actually a USB stick that Horacio Pagani describes can be used "for music." Lord knows we never thought of that.

The folks over at eGarage managed to catch up with Pagani at Pebble Beach where they got the official low down from the man himself exactly what that little aluminum version model of the car really is for.

Last Monday, we brought you news that the first U.S. bound Pagani Huayra had been delivered to a customer in the United States. Now it seems like Pagani may have jumped the gun in selling cars on U.S. soil, thanks to a requirement that automakers implement advanced airbags beginning with the 2000 model year. In the past, low volume manufacturers such as Lamborghini and Tesla had been granted an exception to the regulation, which lead Pagani to believe they’d be granted the very same exemption. It was a logical assumption, since Pagani’s production is far less than Lamborghini’s, and Pagani lacks the technical support of Lamborghini’s parent, Volkswagen/Audi.

Pagani learned the hard way what happens when you assume. Ignoring Pagani’s low-volume manufacturer status and limited technical resources, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has denied the automaker’s request, which gives Pagani only two choices: either develop the required airbag system for the Huayra before deliveries can begin, or forgo the U.S. market entirely as they did with their Zonda supercar. Pagani estimates that designing an airbag system to meet NHTSA requirements will cost them some about $5.7 million, which surely means that the price of U.S. spec Huayras will be raised to cover development. That doesn’t bode well for buyers who’ve already put money down on Pagani’s latest, since the best they can hope for is a higher purchase price. The alternative, sadly, is that the U.S. again loses out on the opportunity to experience one of the world’s premier supercars.
