The Pagani Huayra made its debut as the successor to the Zonda, though several special-edition Zondas showed up subsequently. The Huayra, like the Zonda, sources its powerplant from Mercedes’ tuning arm, AMG. Also like the Zonda, there are dozens of one-off, special-edition models commissioned by buyers around the globe. This one-off Huayra was commissioned by the folks at Bingo Sports in Japan.

With its gold-and-brown color scheme being one that only an owner can love, this Pagani Huayra is the definition of bespoke. I can’t think of too many people who would choose this color option on anything that wasn’t manufactured in the early 1970s. Maybe next time we’ll see a hunter green and lime green two-tone Huayra. Hell, while we’re at it, let’s go all 1970s and run a full baby-poo green exterior on baby-poo green vinyl interior…

Is there anything that may save this poor Pagani?

Exterior

Meet the Bingo Sports’ on-off supercar that it had customized by the designers at Pagani.

As if the Huayra isn’t unique-looking enough, Pagani went ahead and scratched out a bespoke model that is bound to make some drool and others dry-heave. Meet the Bingo Sports’ supercar that it had customized by the designers at Pagani.

OK, there are no insane body kits or wild wings, but one look and you can’t miss that this is something “special.” That brown-and-gold color scheme with white wheels would require blinders to keep your eyes pointed straight ahead if you happened to cross its path on the road. I, for one, think it’s hideous, but the Asian market – this car is heading to Japan — likes its cars a little different than we do here in `Murica.

Interior

Pagani gave us a quick little peek at the cabin, but only a tiny one. Inside I can see that the gold theme is maintained throughout. The steering wheel and dash are both coated in the rich hue. Unfortunately, there is only a tiny snippet of the cabin shown here, so I can’t really see too much. I can only assume that the seats are coated in brown leather, as gold would likely be a bit too gaudy.

Drivetrain

Top speed checks in at 230-ish mph.

Under the hood of the standard Huayra is a Mercedes-sourced, twin-turbo 6.0-liter V-12 that produces 730 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque. This powerhouse of an engine mates to a sequential seven-speed transmission that delivers power exclusively to the rear wheels, to send the Huayra rocketing to 60 mph in the low three-second range. Top speed checks in at 230-ish mph.

There is no indication of any mechanical modifications to this model’s drivetrain, so I expect it to carry all of the standard mechanicals.

Prices

If you’ve gotta ask… well, you know the saying by now. The Huayra itself is outrageous at over $1 million, so I think it’s safe to assume that this bespoke model was at least an extra $250k.

Competition

Lamborghini Aventador

The Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 with 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. The ponies head through a seven-speed ISR transmission before heading out to all four wheels. This setup nets the Lambo a 0-to-62-mph time of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.

On top of being quicker than the Pagani, the Aventador is also a good bit less expensive, at $397,500/ Then again, with the Pagani, you are partly paying for exclusivity.

Ferrari F12berlinetta

The F12berlinetta is not quite the same wildly styled automobile as the Aventador or Huayra, but it does compete with the two in terms of performance and opulence. The F12 comes with a 6.3-liter V-12 that rips up tarmac to the tune of 731 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of twist. Power heads to the rear wheels only, via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, for a sprint time to 62 mph of 3.1 seconds. The F12 tops out at 211 mph.

Like the Lambo, the F12berlinetta is a good bit less than the Pagani, checking in at $318,888.

Conclusion

While I love the Huayra, it’s quickly starting to fall out of favor, as cheaper competitors are blowing it out of the water in terms of performance. Additionally, the look is already dated. At more than $1 million, I just don’t see it, unless you are paying that much simply to be the only person in town who has one. Add to that this funky paint job, and I think I may be sick.

  • Leave it
    • Slow relative to its far cheaper competitors
    • That color scheme is hideous
    • Looks dated
