The latest offering from Pagani the Huayra truly epitomizes the above mentioned qualities in true Pagani style making it one of the most exotic dream cars on this planet and the fact that only 40 units of this exotic beauty will be produced per year makes it a rare collector’s item.
The design of Huayra is truly outwardly. Taking cues from its sibling Zonda the design is truly mesmerizing. Amalgamation of art and engineering, this exotic beauty is designed keeping the eternal element air in mind. The name Huayra itself means “God of the Winds”. True to its name this dream car is aerodynamically perfect. The Huayra features an all new chassis with central monoque designed from carbon-titanium. It features active aerodynamic flaps at each corners that operates independently as per the inputs from sensor measuring speed, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, roll and steering angle. The suspensions also electronically adjust lowering the nose to increase down force at speed. The wheel base has been stretched by 2.8 inch over the Zonda’s. The suspension is race car inspired and made from Avional with pushrod actuated Ohlins shocks. The carbon brakes are designed by Brembo and PZero tires from Pirelli are used to overcome Huayra’s speed and lateral forces. Other interesting exterior features include gull-wing styled doors, elliptical rear view mirrors, rear diffusers and the incredible four tipped exhaust at the rear lending a truly alien look to this hyper dream car.
The interior of Huayra is truly a work of art. The materials used for the interiors are truly precious and exotic. The attention to detailing is perfect and overall is a notch above its sibling Zonda’s interior. The leather clad seats are comfortable and offers a snug fit to the driver along with providing incredible support. All the instrumentation is ergonomically laid out within the reach of driver providing a truly amazing driving experience. The gear shifters, turbine styled air vents, futuristic instrument cluster all are so exquisite in design that it really seems like a piece of art and are fit for display in museum. Without doubt Huayra has the best looking cockpit made till date.
The power core of this dream car is the 5980cc Mercedes AMG M158 V12 Twin-Turbo engine producing an outstanding 720 HP @ 5800 rpm and a peak torque of 738 lb-ft @ 2250 to 4500 rpm. This gem of an engine is mated to a transverse sequential seven speed gearbox AMT robotized system with driving programs.

These dream cars are so exotic and exquisite that words fail me in describing it to its true potential. A true gem of a car in every sense this hyper car is a dream come true for every car enthusiast. This exquisite beauty is priced at $ 1.5 million making it one of the most expensive cars on the planet but believe me it’s worth every penny that you spend for there are very few cars on this planet that will provide you the exclusivity, performance, styling and satisfaction of owning a Huayra. It’s truly a piece of modern art that needs to be preserved to showcase the artistic and engineering prowess of this generation to the future generation.
