2018 Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon
Pagani dropped a surprise at “The Quail — A Motorsport Gathering” event over the weekend when it unveiled the latest special edition Huayra Roadster, called the Gyrfalcon. Named after the White Gyrfalcon, the largest of all falcon species, the Huayra Roadster lives up to its namesake with a color scheme that matches the majestic colors of the bird of prey. The Pagani Huayra Gyrfalcon is a one-off model, and there’s a good chance that it already has an owner.
2017 Pagani Huayra Americano
From the automaker that has turned one-off creations into something of a business in of itself, Pagani is back at it again with yet another exclusive creation. It’s called the Pagani Huayra Americano, and it’s actually here in the U.S., specifically at Pagani’s own dealership in Newport Beach, California. Even better; it’s actually for sale, though like most one-off Paganis, the price for this exclusive Huayra is on a need-to-know basis.
Pagani Newport didn’t disclose too many details about the Huayra Americana, saying only that it was delivered in the latter half of 2016 and only has 488 miles on its odometer. It’s also stock #0019 and carries the VIN ZFGK58739Kl09300L. There’s no price tag on the car, but that’s to be expected considering that this is a one-off model that underwent a lot of custom touches to validate its name. Regardless of what new digs are in the car, don’t expect it to come cheap. For one, those 488 miles are close enough to be considered new. Then there’s the prestige and exclusivity that comes with being an owner of a true one-off Pagani Huayra. All that considered, expect this car to fetch north of $2 million at the very least.

2016 Pagani Huayra Tempesta
Pagani has been known to create some pretty wild vehicles. I mean look at models like the Zonda Revolucion and the Huayra BC, for example. They are clearly two of the wildest machines created, but now Pagani is stepping things up for the Huayra coupe with a new package. Dubbed the Pacchetto Tempesta, the kit is offered as an option on new Huayra models or as a retrofit for those of you who already own a Huayra.
This new package comes with aerodynamic enhancements as well as a few other upgrades that will help improve the car’s handling and driving characteristics. According to Pagani, the kit provides “more responsive behavior,” and reduced body roll and pitch, providing a “sporty yet comfortable driving experience.”
The real shocker about the whole Pacchetto Tempesta’ package is the invoice that comes with it. With a price tag of €160,000, or about $182,480 at current conversion rates. So, for the price of this upgrade kit, you could get yourself a new McLaren 540C or even a new Porsche 911. So, with a price that high, let’s take a good look at the kit and see what makes it worth that much money.
Updated 08/23/2017: We added a series of images taken during the car’s auction at the 2017 Monterey Car Week where it was sold for $2,420,000.

2018 Pagani Huayra Roadster
Pagani debuted the Huayra in 2012 as the replacement for the aging Zonda, despite the fact that the manufacturer continued to roll out special edition Zondas through 2014. The Huayra name may sound odd at first, but it is based on the God of the wind, Wayra Tata, from the era of the Inca empire. The Huayra coupe was limited to only 100 units and has been sold out since 2015, but since then, Pagani has launched the hardcore BC version and a handful of unique, bespoke models. In 2017, Pagani introduced the Huayra Roadster, a drop-top with bespoke chassis and features.
Reports of a roadster version started circulating shortly after the coupe debuted, with initial reports claiming a release was planned for 2016. That obviously didn’t happen, but the Italian firm confirmed that the open-top supercar will make its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. Come February and the Huayra Roadster unveiled itself to the world.
Unlike other supercars in this expensive niche, the Huayra Roadster isn’t just a hacked-up coupe. Instead, the Italian manufacturer prepared a healthy power increase, made it lighter than the coupe, and gave it a revised chassis with bespoke settings. Granted, the Huayra is already expensive, so it’s only natural to ask yourself whether the Roadster is awesome enough to warrant its massive price tag? Find out more about that in the review below.

2017 Pagani Huayra BC
Although it’s been around since 2012, the Pagani Huayra didn’t spawn more than a few special-edition versions until 2016. But as soon as all 100 units of the supercar were sold, the Italian carmaker began working on new iterations of the model — the Huayra Roadster and a more hardcore version of the coupe. While the former didn’t break cover until 2017, the latter surfaced the Interwebz in a teaser image on December 2015 and made its global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Fitted with an uprated V-12 powerplant, a new transmission, revised aerodynamics, and a race-inspired interior, the Huayra BC was named after Benny Caiola, one of the first Pagani customers, as well as a good friend of Horacio. So, while the Zonda F was dedicated to Formula One ace Juan Manuel Fangio, the Huayra BC was developed in honor of Caiola, who owned several Zondas, including a Zonda F, which was regularly driven by Horacio himself.
Not only the most powerful and aerodynamic coupe version of the Huayra ever developed (the Roadster models has a more powerful engine), the BC is also the most exclusive, being build in significantly less units than the original supercar. But more on all that in the review below.

2016 Pagani Huayra Pearl
Pagani is a young automaker that has only been around for 24 years. For most of that time, its primary production model was the Zonda. Before the Zonda was officially killed off, the brand had begun working on the Pagani Huayra, or the C9, as it was known in the Pagani design studio. The original Huayra came to be in 2011, but we weren’t graced with the Huayra BC until 2016. In between, Pagani released a number of special edition models like the Huayra White Edition, Huayra Carbon Edition, and the Huayra Project Vulcan, among others.
Now, Pagani has designed another one-off Huayra, but this time, it was built specifically for a customer of Refined Marque – an exotic car dealership that specializes in sourcing, supplying, and purchasing the world’s most exotic cars. The new Huayra is called the Huayra Pearl, and it represents a combination of everything Pagani has learned over the years. The car itself even has a few strands of DNA from the Huayra BC and the Zonda R.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a whole lot of specifics about the Huayra Pearl. But, now that you know its origins and purpose, let’s take a closer look at it. Maybe we can make out a few things that help to make it so special.

Much like the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg Agera, the Pagani Huayra competes in a very special niche. Not so much because of its impressive performance, but for being hand-crafted to bespoke specifications tailored for each owner. In short, each Huayra is unique, which pretty much explains why this supercar costs more than $2 million. Sure, companies such as Ferrari and McLaren also have the ability to customize their supercars, but neither the LaFerrari nor the P1 can match the craftsmanship that goes into a Pagani. And, the Huayra Project Vulcan is living proof that Horacio Pagani’s team is responsible for some of the most exquisite supercars ever built.
A one-off project with unique options fitted for the first time on a Huayra, the Project Vulcan also has an interesting story behind it. The supercar was commissioned by Brett David, CEO of Prestige Imports and Pagani Miami, the manufacturer’s official dealer in Florida. Brett became a fervent admirer of Horacio Pagani through his father, Irv David, who, after he saw the Zonda C12 prototype at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show, devised a plan to become the first Pagani importer in the U.S.
When Brett’s father died in 2007, he went on to contact the Italian company, only to learn that another dealership was locked to become the brand’s Florida dealer. What Brett didn’t know at the time, was that Pagani had promised the partnership to his father. He learned about it after he posed as a customer and went to visit Pagani’s factory. Shortly after, Pagani Miami was created as an official Pagani Automobili dealership in the United States. Eight years later and Brett took delivery of the Huayra Project Vulcan, a supercar built as a tribute to his father.

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?
It’s still hard to overstate what Horacio Pagani and the company that carries his name have accomplished since unveiling the original Zonda in 1999. Think about all the supercar start-ups you see on a near weekly basis foisting renders of what will inevitably end up as vaporware within the depths of the Internet. Pagani is one of the rare exceptions. Not only has this tiny company been successful, its been able to show the Italian supercar establishment a few things about how to build truly special cars.
One way Pagani has done this is with its one-off program, and now the company has released new renders of the second Huayra one-off, and the follow-up to the Huayra La Monza Lisa, called the Huayra 730 S.
The 730 S is built exclusively for Mexican movie producer, entrepreneur and self-confessed car-nut Alejandro Salomon. Salomon already has a garage that includes a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 458 Italia and a fleet of Mercedes and Bentleys. He’s not exactly wanting for exotic metal at this time, but I’d probably do the same if I were a billionaire. Saloman has nicknamed his new car “the Huayrab.”

Although the Huayra is already two years old, Pagani’s state-of-the-art supercar has barely begun to conquest markets the world over. After reaching U.S. shores in July 2014, shortly after Pagani’s official launch in North America, the Huayra has now landed in China and Macau, where the Italian manufacturer established its Pagani China Automotive Limited (PCAL) operations. To celebrate its entry into the world’s biggest automotive market, Pagani created a special-edition Huayra limited to only three units.
Dubbed Dinastia, which translates to dynasty, the first three Huayras to reach Chinese customers are part of a 100-example allocation for the Asian country. According to Pagani, the first limited-edition Huayra to arrive in Asia consists of three cars because the Chinese pronunciation of the number three sounds like the character "sheng," which represents a new birth and the meaning of life. In the usual Pagani fashion, all three units will be delivered with unique exteriors and a theme specifically tailored for the Chinese market (read dragons and Chinese symbols).

Now that the Pagani Zonda and its countless special editions is dead and buried, the Italian supercar manufacturer can finally focus on the Huayra and the bespoke iterations customers are demanding. We’ve already seen one such model reach U.S. dealerships earlier in 2014, and a second supercar just landed on American soil, this time around in Kris Singh’s garage.
Known as a passionate car collector, Singh joined the exclusive club of Pagani Huayra supercar owners by taking delivery of his unique, La Monza Lisa edition. The first Huayra to feature a special name, Singh’s Pagani showcases a bare carbon-fiber finish and wears a custom Italian Tricolore stripe down its nose, roof and engine bonnet. Adding to its uniqueness is a set of chrome, seven-spoke rims usually seen on the track-confined Pagani Zonda R. A "Pagani" vanity plate rounds off Singh’s Huayra, which is set to turn many heads.
Just like his rare Lamborghini Veneno and the Huracan he’s about to receive will do.
Engine-wise, the Huayra La Monza Lisa is as stock as it gets. Residing under the long rear hood is the same, AMG-sourced, 6.0-liter V-12 that sends 730 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque to the wheels and a piercing note through that sexy, center-mounted exhaust.

While the aging Pagani Zonda continues to receive one-off, special-edition models, the Huayra has yet to spawn one, not to mention that the Roadster version is still in the works as of June 2014. But fear not, the Huayara is soon to receive the love it deserves from Pagani in the form of a Nurburgring Edition.
That’s the word from a TeamSpeed forum user, who got the chance to sit down and talk to Pagani test driver Davide Testi. The Italian ace had no trouble in spilling the beans about the Huayra’s production plans, and, apparently, they include a limited-edition, track-focused version set to carry the Nurburgring Edition moniker. Only 15 to 25 units will be built, making it one of the rarest supercars ever created.
No additional details are available on this mysterious Huayra, including whether it will be track-exclusive like the Zonda R or not, but expect this rocket to wear a serious aerodynamic kit consisting of a reworked front fascia, a massive rear diffuser and a huge rear wing on the edge of its rear hood. Interior changes will most likely include FIA-compliant racing seats and harnesses, a race-spec steering wheel and even a roll cage.
As with most track-prepped cars, the Huayra Nurburgring Edition is also set to go on a severe diet, with both the chassis and body to ditch more than just a few pounds. Naturally, the beastly 6.0-liter, V-12 heart powering the wheels by means of 730 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque will become even more potent. Expect 0-to-60 mph times to drop below the 2.6-second mark and brace yourselves for a lightning-fast Nurburgring lap record.
Nurburgring Edition aside, the source also reveals that Pagani is looking to build 110 Huayra coupes and 110 roadsters. We have a hunch these will be followed by a bevy of special edition and unique versions.

In the world of supercars, you have many different players. Ferrari is the technological wonder child, while Lamborghini is that school bully that developed a bit of common sense with age.Aston Martin is the sophisticated gentlemen spy that can charm any living thing with a single word. Then, you come to Pagani, the new boy. These cars don’t feature any sophistication or old world charm. Yet, their radical designs and outrageous performance have placed them in the top tier of the supercar tree and now, we have a new version, the C9.
In the world of follow-ups, this one is massive. Sort of like the Godfather II following the Godfather. The Zonda was the car that made Pagani into the company you see today. Automotive journalists loved it and the base version spawned many different special editions and one-offs like the Zonda F and Cinque. It was like nothing ever seen before. The Zonda’s development was evolutionary, but the C9 that will replace it will be revolutionary.
UPDATE 03/15/2013: Pagani has unveiled a new promo video for its Huayra supercar. Called simply "God of Wind" the new video is just an attempt to bring the supercar back to our attention. Enjoy!
Hit the jump for more details on the Pagani Huayra.
The introduction of the Pagani Huayra came and went rather quickly, and although videos of the super car have been sprouting all over the internet, it’s nice to see that Pagani was working on a special edition to revamp its exquisiteness. The Huayra Carbon Edition joined the Huayra White Edition in the short list of special models offered by the Italian sports car manufacturer.
The Carbon Fiber Edition obviously uses tons of carbon fiber to set it apart from the standard, but that’s where the differences end. The model has dropped its usual paint job in favor of carbon fiber coating, with the same material also being used for many of the interior elements starting with the dashboard and going up to accents on the premium leather seats.
Aside from the carbon fiber extravaganza, the Huayra Carbon Edition maintains all of the standard Huayra’s luxurious amenities, including its twin-turbocharged V12 engine. This engine is good for 700 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque and in the standard model, will sprint the super car from 0 to 60mph in just 3.3 seconds up to a top speed of 230 mph.
Pagani is making some serious waves at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show with the showcase of not one, but two special edition Huayra super cars.
One of the Huayra’s is called the White Edition, joining the Carbon Edition at the Geneva floor. Though not as eye-catching as the carbon fiber clad Huayra Carbon Edition, the Huayra White Edition is nonetheless another example of how smoking hot the Italian supercar is.
Best we can tell, the pristine white finish of this particular Huayra matches well with the naked carbon fiber body panels on the car. Add that to the fact that this is one of the fastest machines on the planet and it makes the car that much more drool-worthy.
And just in case you’ve forgotten what its capable of, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0 liter Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V12 engine that produces a staggering 700 horsepower and puts out a whopping 730 lb/ft of torque. Those ridiculous figures allow the Huayra White Edition to cover 0-62 mph in just 3.3 seconds while hitting a top speed north of 220 mph.
