Pagani’s latest one-off Huayra is called the The King, and, while we can’t be sure, we can say with some certainty that it doesn’t belong to Elvis Presley, LeBron James or Burger King’s creepy plastic-faced mascot. Delivered to its new owner in Connecticut, the Pagani Huayra The King 1 of 1 of 1 (to use its full name) is the latest customized ride from Italy’s most famed purveyor of ridiculously fast and impossibly opulent supercars.

The exterior differentiates itself from lesser Huayras with gloss-black carbon-fiber body panels and sections of white paint, highlighted with dark-red accent stripes. The motif carries over into the interior’s black leather seats and dash, with white accents and dark-red stitching. Other than that, the interior appears to be pretty much standard Pagani Huayra fare, which is to say that it looks like an amazing place to be. Instrument lighting can be switched between aqua and red, which, to be fair, was something Volkswagen started doing over a decade ago.

Pagani hasn’t released any technical specifics, but we’re guessing The King uses the same, slightly more-potent V-12 as the Huayra La Monza Lisa and 730 S one-offs. That means 12 cylinders, two turbos and 6.0 liters of Mercedes-AMG fury sending 730 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. The sprint to 60 mph is dispatched in 3.3 seconds and top speed is 230 mph.

Why it matters

Commissioning Pagani to build a custom Huayra is not a cheap endeavor. A ‘regular’ Huayra starts at around $1.5 million, making it one of the most expensive new cars currently on the market. The extra customization could easily add several hundred thousand to final cost, meaning you might have to be an actual king to afford one.
