Following seven years of development, the Pagani Huayra is about the enter production. The stunning Italian supercar was one of the stars of the last year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show. Pagani was able to write down 85 confirmed orders for the Huayra ‒ achieving the targets for production, turnover and profits. This year Pagani is set to produce 25 Huayras and another 40 will follow in 2013. The first deliveries will be made in April.
The Pagani Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V12. Displacement is 5,980cc and power peaks at 700 horsepower and 1,000Nm of torque. Quite impressive is the fact the the Pagani Huayra has the lowest CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of any 12-cylinder sportscar.
The 700,000km of dynamic tests have been completed in a variety of climatic conditions with five prototypes, confirming the expectations regarding reliability and performance that Pagani Automobili and its technical partners targeted.
In November 2011 The Pagani Huayra received its Euro 5 emission certification and now they are working on homologation for the American market. The first US spec Pagani Huayras, certified according to the highest US safety as well as California’s emission standards, will be delivered in 2013.
The Italian manufacturer has also implemented a new high-quality management system called ‘the Pagani quality method’. In their press release they stated:
Including some of the most severe procedures derived from the aerospace industry, the Pagani quality method expands beyond the technical and technological perfection and includes the artistic and design quality. Quality is born with the drawing, with shape, before reaching the technology. Art and science must walk together, hand in hand.
Horacio Pagani, founder and chief designer at Pagani Automobili, said:
We are very enthusiastic about the public’s reception of the newborn Pagani Huayra. It has always been our intent to unite art and technology and our customers and car enthusiasts were able to see these values that accompany us every day in the Huayra. All this is further confirmation of our approach to combine art and science by the means of meticulous research.
The completion of the new production facilities, already partly operational and hosting the development department for the past two years, will be completed in 2012, and will allow the company to meet the increased demand coming from Pagani’s new markets in Asia and the US. To meet this demand, the Pagani dealership family has grown in 2011 and 2012 with new dealerships in Chile, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom and in the United States: Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco.

In addition tot the Huayra, there is also the Zonda R track program which will carry on. The Pagani Zonda R has been a laboratory to test components, technologies and new solutions that have then been integrated in the Pagani Huayra.
The research and development activities will continue in 2012, backed up by the work of Pagani’s technical partners AMG, Aspa, Brembo, MHG and Pirelli. The last five units of the Zonda R will be built in 2012, completing the limited production run of 15 vehicles.
