Strange Pagani Huayra Prototype Caught Testing: Video
The Pagani Huayra has been around since 2011 and while it has received numerous variations in the past, it’s never really had a big transformation. By and large, the Huayra has remained the same, at least until recently when YouTube user PurePerformance was able to capture of video a camouflaged Huayra sporting some pretty interesting new aerodynamic components.
The video was taken at the San Martino del Lago race track in Cremona, Italy. It’s only 47 seconds long but in that space, we get to see the covered up Huayra with an enormous carbon fiber rear spoiler, an aggressive front splitter, and a massive rear diffuser. Now these things don’t point to anything specifically, but I wholeheartedly believe that this could very well be the long-awaited track version of the mighty Italian exotic. It’s name has varied too depending on who you talked to. Some folks are calling it the Huayra R while others are referring to it as the Huayra S or SE. In 2014, the same Huayra Nurburgring Edition was even mentioned.
Whatever its name is, it’s pretty clear from those added aerodynamic components that this particular Huayra isn’t going to be a regular model. Besides, Pagani has already sold out all 100 units of the “regular” model so it doesn’t make sense for it to be testing a new one of the same ilk. It’s also not the planned Huayra Roadster, at least when you look at that closed cockpit.
So what could this model be? I’m putting my money on that track-focused Huayra we’ve heard so much about but have only gotten glimpses of a few times. It now appears that it’s on its way, even though it’s unclear how far along it is in the testing phase. But it is arriving and that’s great news for Pagani, its loyal fancies, and types like us who generally just love to see supercars like this get some shine.
