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.

These days, Italian automaker Pagani has become a household name in supercar lore. It’s one of the most recognizable supercar brands in the world, thanks in large part to the success generated by the now-iconic Zonda .
But that wasn’t always the case, especially during the turn of the century when the Zonda was just getting started in turning heads.
Fast forward to this year and it looks like Pagani is going to finally send the Zonda off into retirement. So, it’s only appropriate that we pay homage to the supercar that started it all, the prototype model that has come to be known as the Zonda "Nonno".
Serial car spotter, Shmee150, managed to take a close look at the prototype test mule Zonda, nicknamed "Nonno" (that means ’grandfather’ in Italian) because of its age (it was one of the first prototye Zondas ever created) and wear and tear (it’s logged an incredible 680,000 miles, which is about 1.1 million kilometers)
Talk about getting your investment’s worth on one supercar.
Over the years, the Zonda Nonno has evolved, depending on what specifications Pagani was using at that time. In its current state, the supercar mule carries a 7.3-liter V-12 engine that packs 760 horsepower and specified to the details of the Zonda 760.
But with the Zonda’s retirement drawing closer and closer, it looks like the Zonda Nonno will finally get the rest it so richly deserves.

Unfortunately, Pagani only revealed a limited set of images of its new supercar, but YouTube user Shmee150 managed to catch the supercar on video. He was lucky enough to be wondering around the Pagani factory in San Cesario sul Panaro, Italy as a Zonda Revolucion was just rolling off of the production line.
The new Zonda Revolucion is powered by an improved version of Mercedes AMG ’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine. The engine delivers a total of 800 horsepower and peak torque of 538 pound-feet. The engine delivers power through a six-speed automated manual gearbox that changes gears in 20 milliseconds.
If you want to own this supercar you’ll have to prepare a total of $2.8 million. The problem is that four of the five units to be built are already sold, so it might be a little bit difficult to buy one.
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.

Not many of us will have the chance to test the new Zonda Revolucion revealed by Pagani the other day. Then again, it is also true that not many of us will actually have the chance to drive any of the Pagani models.
So, all we can do is enjoy those cool videos that feature models like the Zonda F . For example, this video (above) offers you the chance to hear the incredible sound developed by a Zonda F fitted with Cinque spec aero upgrades and the titanium exhaust.
Launched in 2005, Zonda F is powered by the usual 7.3-liter V-12 engine found in all Zonda models. The engine delivers a total of 620 horsepower - 650 in the Clubsport version - and can sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, then top out at a speed of 214 mph.
Pagani is already selling the Huayra supercar , which is enjoying great success, but the company decided to take a look back in the past and developed the Zonda Revolucion, or, as Pagani describes it "the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and art applied to a track car."
When compared to a standard Zonda , the new version features an improved aerodynamic package, a new rear wing with a Drag Reduction System and, of course, some extra power under the hood. All these changes make it ready to take on any circuit in the world.
The new Zonda Revolucion was unveiled at the 2013 Vanishing Point - the international Pagani gathering - and will be priced at €2.2 million plus taxes (about $2.8 million). It will be limited to only five units, four of which were sold during the private presentation.

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.
