Video: The keys of the Pagani Huayra is a mini aluminum version of the supercar

In its constant desire to come out with the unexpected, Pagani has found a new way to completely blow us away. As if the new Huayra supercar isn’t mind-blowing enough, we now learn from Horacio Pagani himself that the seven-figure supercar comes with some new quirks we’ve never heard before, particularly the keys to the car.

Unlike standard ignition keys, the Huayra’s key is actually a miniature model of the vehicle cast in aluminum, which, incidentally, is the same material found on the wheels of the car. Say that again, right?

The aluminum key, which a lot of people might mistake for a toy, splits into two parts when opened. On one end, you have the actual key to the ignition of the supercar while the other end is actually a USB stick that Horacio Pagani describes can be used "for music." Lord knows we never thought of that.

The folks over at eGarage managed to catch up with Pagani at Pebble Beach where they got the official low down from the man himself exactly what that little aluminum version model of the car really is for.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Great key! The style of the is really great. A toy car aluminum design is double purpose. The key of the car and usb for the music of the car.
