These official pics of the Pagani Huayra have been published on the Pagani website. Like the Zonda before it the Huayra is not going to win any beauty contests. Yet, at the same time, it’s just as beautiful. In fact, probably more so.
Maybe it’s because this time around Pagani has little left to prove. We now know they are a cottage industry manufacturer that can take it right up to the icons of Ferrari and Lamborghini. And perhaps beyond.
As expected the Huayra is powered by a twin-turbo 6.0 litre V12. Mercedes has once again provided the engine, via its AMG factory. The Huayra has a peak power figure of over 700PS and maximum torque is beyond a massive 1000Nm. With a dry weight of just 1350kgâ€”distributed 44% to front, 56% to the rearâ€”the Huayra is sure to be both frighteningly quick and razor sharp.
UPDATE: The official Huayra press release can be downloaded at the end of this article.
