Pagani Huayra Sets New Top Gear Test Track Record
The accolades just keep on coming for the mighty 2011 Pagani Huayra.
Already considered as one of the fastest and most beautiful supercars on the planet, the Huayra recorded yet another milestone during the first episode of Top Gear’s 19th season.
With the venerable Stig at the wheel, the Huayra managed to set a new record for a street-legal car on the Top Gear Test Track, breaking the line with a lap time of 1:13.8, more than a full second faster than what the previous record-holder — the Ariel Atom V8 — accomplished when it clocked in a time of 1:15.1.
It’s an impressive achievement for a street-legal car, although it’s still a little ways off of the time its brethren, the Pagani Zonda R, set when it blasted through the course in a scintillating 1:08.5. Of course, the Zonda R isn’t street legal, as is the Ferrari FXX, which posted a time of 1:10.7.
Be that as it may, the Huayra’s time is still spectacular.
