The 2022 Pagani Huayra R Sounds Like An Old Formula One Car And It’s Epic
Since 1999, Pagani Automobili has been churning out some of the most exciting Italian super/hypercars. After the numerous Zonda editions, came the Huayra’s turn. Like the Pagani Zonda, the Pagani Huayra has come with its fair share of special editions, and in 2022, the most hardcore of all Huayras is going on sale – the Pagani Huayra R. Being a track-focused monster, the Huayra is meant to be driven hard, which is exactly what we see on this video, from the Monza racetrack, in Italy.
Is this the 2023 Pagani C10?
After 10 years on the market, seven different variants and more than a dozen of special editions, the Pagani Huayra is long overdue for a replacement. In a recent interview, Horacio Pagani confirmed that the company is indeed working on a replacement for the Huayra. It is codenamed C10 and should be unveiled sometime in the summer of 2022.
Now, it looks like we also have our first look on the upcoming C10, as a rendering, allegedly of the next hypercar, has surfaced online. The rendering is also accompanied by a picture of a letter for an application for reservation. Apparently, in order to reserve the C10 you had to pay €300,000 (or about $340,000 at the current exchange rates). Of course, you don’t have to worry about this anymore, as all the 280-300 units were already spoken for.
The Pagani Huayra’s Successor Promises a Next-Gen V-12 and a Manual Transmission
With the Pagani Huayra being on the market for the better part of a decade – actually it will be a decade as of 2022 – the world has been expecting a successor. Now, we don’t exactly have all of the specifics, but a new report quoting none other than Horacio Pagani has shed some light on a few things that we can expect. The most important development is that it will remain true to its internal combustion roots with no hint of electrification in the mix.
A New Investment in Pagani Could Lead the Manufacturer Into New Territory
A Saudi Arabian Investment company now owns a significant portion of Pagani, and this could be a bigger deal than you think. So far, Pagani’s have been a product of Horacio’s imagination. However, there are now two ways forward for the company and its cars. It could use the extra dough to make its cars that much more insane, possibly with some Middle Eastern flare, or it could be the production of a corporate culture that kills the very soul of Pagani to please shareholders.
Lewis Hamilton Already Broke his Promise to Only Drive EVs
Back in September 2020, F1 driver, Lewis Hamilton told he is trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible outside the track. He had told Reuters in the past that he doesn’t drive any of the cars he owns other than his German EV, the Mercedes EQC. But, less than a year later, he was spotted driving his one-off Pagani Zonda 760LH. In Hamilton’s defense, how can you not drive a Pagani when it’s available at your disposal!
Pagani Huayra BC Pacchetto Tempesta - An 800+ Huayra BC With Significant Aero Upgrades
Pagani launched the Huayra back in 2011. After all the 100 examples were sold out, the company followed it with four more limited-production Huayra models - Roadster, BC, Roadster BC, and the Imola. Now, to commemorate the original Huayra’s 10th anniversary, Pagani has introduced a special edition called the Pacchetto Tempesta. It is based on the Huayra BC and comes with aero and performance upgrades. For those of you wondering what ‘Pacchetto Tempesta’ means, it is Italian for ‘Storm Pack’.
This Bespoke Pagani Huayra BC Roadster "Supernova" Is The Definition of Sexy
The Pagani Huayra arrived on the automotive scene in 2011 as a spiritual successor to the Zonda. It derives its name from Huayra-tata, a Quetcha wind God. The company announced just 100 examples of the Huayra when launched and all of them we sold by 2015. This was followed by the Huayra Roadster, Huayra BC, Huayra Roadster BC, and the Huayra Imola. All of these are limited production models as well and Pagani will build just 100, 20, 40, and five examples, respectively.
A customer in Canada recently took the delivery of his highly-customized Roadster BC ‘Supernova,’ and we can’t stop drooling over it.
Is Pagani Afraid to Go Racing?
Pagani’s latest track-only weapon, the $3.7 million Huayra R, is still warm having been taken out of Horacio’s oven only recently. With 840 horsepower that has to move around just 2,314 pounds of weight, this V-12-powered beauty is a worthy sequel to the Zonda R but it leaves us with one big question: why doesn’t Pagani go racing? We know the people working there love racing, it’s noticeable at every step when you look at a Pagani yet Horacio never spent much to see the Pagani name in competition.
Take This Rare Opportunity To See The Pagani Huayra R On The Track
Pagani’s Huayra R, the car that’s supposed to be the swan song for the Huayra supercar is an 838-horsepower, V-12-powered track jewel. But for some reason, Pagani decided that’s it’s for the best to reveal the R using 3D animation and not the rear car. Which is lame.
2021 Pagani Huayra R
The time has come for the aging Pagani Huayra to sing its swan song. And what a song has Pagani come up with. Meet the Huayra R, a track-only supercar that costs $3.1 million and will only be made in 30 units.
The first Huayra saw daylight all the way back in 2012. Since then, Horacio Pagani’s boutique car company has churned out different variations of the Huayra, although nothing comes close to the R.
What Can You Make Out From This Pagani Huayra R Teaser?
Nine years after its debut, the Huayra is still going strong. The Pagani supercar has been the recipient of countless special edition versions over the years, and recently, Pagani teased a mysterious new model in its Facebook page that points to a new special edition Huayra. We only get a glimpse of the mystery model through a silhouette from the rear, but there’s no mistaking what this model is. This is the Pagani Huayra R.
You Have To Hear The Pagani Huayra R’s Naturally Aspirated V-12!
The Pagani Huayra may be nine years old as of 2021, but it’s not going away anytime soon. The Italian company is preparing a new version of the V-12 supercar and it’s going to be the most extreme iteration yet. It’s called the Huayra R and it’s still somewhat of a mystery. Pagani just released a sound sample of its V-12 engine and it’s one of the best sounding supercars out there!
What is the Cheapest Pagani?
There is no cheap Pagani. By design, a Pagani cannot be cheap as the high-end craftsmanship that goes into each and every car built at the company’s headquarters in San Cesario Sul Panaro, Modena, Italy. Having said that, when introduced, the Huayra Coupé was available from $1.4 million in the US making it a lot more expensive than it originally cost in Europe where it was available from just $997,000. To put it into context, the recently released Huayra Roadster BC costs $3.5 million, a whopping $900,000 more than the standard Huayra Roadster.
What is the Sportiest Pagani?
All Paganis are sporty since all are supercars. However, with so many special editions having been made over the years of both the Zonda and the Huayra, some are more potent than others. Currently, the sportiest Huayra that’s not a one-off is the Huayra BC Roadster of which 40 will be made. Each comes with a twin-turbocharged V-12 under the hood developing 791 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 774 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 rpm. The Huayra BC Roadster is more powerful than theHuayra BC Coupé that delivers ’only’ 750 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.
What is the Most Popular Pagani?
When Pagani thought about introducing the then-newly-released Huayra in the US, the company thought it’d only sell about eight units a year so it’s hard to call any Pagani ’popular’. To put it into perspective, Pagani sold about 40 cars in 2018 and that includes some special-edition models including the Zonda HP Barchetta. Having said that, you must remember that there’s no Pagani that can come even close to being referred to as ’mass-produced’. For instance, the Pagani Huayra Roadster in standard trim was limited to only 100 units and all were spoken for before the end of 2017. This means, in a way, that any Pagani is popular since all of them sell out rather quickly, regardless of price tag. Historically speaking, however, the model that sold the most is the Zonda as some 200 have been built over the years (including the track-only versions).
What is the Most Expensive Pagani?
The price of a Pagani depends a lot on how much its owner wants to make it his or her own. In other words, Pagani’s extensive personalization program can double the price of a Huayra if you can afford it. However, the most expensive Pagani (without adding taxes or any other customer-requested gizmos) is the BC Roadster with a price tag of $3.5 million.
What is the Fastest Pagani?
All Paganis are ludicrously fast by default. However, the fastest of the lot is the Huayra BC with a top speed of 238 mph. The one-off Huayra Pearl is said to go even faster as it’s significantly more powerful than the Huayra BC (1,350 horsepower) but no reliable source has come forth with a number.
Are Pagani Cars Reliable?
While you aren’t meant to daily-drive a Pagani, they seem to be more reliable than one would expect from a hand-built supercar. One of the first Pagani Zondas built in 1998 that has been used for years by the factory as a rolling testbed showed approximately 680,000 miles on the odometer as of 2013 when the car was retired from its duty as a test mule and restored by Pagani.
