The Drive channel has become one of the most popular auto-themed channels on YouTube. Last season, it ran a web series that went inside the heart of Koenigsegg.
Now, Drive and host Chris Harris are back and it’s teasing a new short film featuring another one of our favorite exotic manufacturers: Pagani.
Just thinking about the film is already getting our hearts pumping. The Zonda and the Huayra are two of the finest supercars to have run the streets of the world in recent years. Any chance we have of getting to know more about these two exotics, as well as the people behind the creation of it, is something worth paying close attention to.
And if Drive’s Inside Koenigsegg web series is any indication, we’re going to get a real treat with this film.

First introduced in 2005, the Pagani Zonda has become one of the most beloved supercars in recent history. Its popularity was such that the model lasted six years - an eternity in the supercar world, especially for a niche builder - before it was eventually replaced by an equally capable supercar, the Huayra.
Spawning multiple versions, special editions and one-offs, the Zonda reached the peak of its power with the release of the Zonda R, an ultra-limited edition model (only 15 were made) that came with a massive AMG-sourced V-12 engine that produced 750 horsepower and 524 pound-feet of torque. The special edition supercar was capable of hitting 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.
The Huayra picked up the baton from the Zonda as Pagani’s existing supercar back in 2011. While it looked slightly less radical as its predecessor, the Huayra was no less of a monster on wheels. It featured a smaller 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that was capable of producing 700 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque that allows it to launch to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 230 mph.
