Geneva 2011: Pagani Huayra
Mar 1, 2011
The new Pagani Huayra supercar has made its public debut at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
Pagani's 700bhp successor to the Zonda is finally here and it’s called the Huayra. The new creation from Pagani is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 made exclusively for the car by AMG. This is mated to a seven-speed automated manual gearbox which weighs less than a double clutch transmission and helps keep the overall kerb weight down to just 1390kg. The top speed is claimed to be over 235mph and 0-60mph is expected to take just 3.2sec.
Active suspension and, even more intriguingly, active aerodynamics have both been developed for the Huayra. The level of detail is as beautiful as we have come to expect from the small Italian manufacturer, with the exposed carbonfibre weave matching immaculately between components. Mind you, the car needs to feel pretty special as it is going to cost in the region of £1,000,000 when it goes on sale this Spring.
