It is a known fact that the Pagani Zonda successor is around the corner. The Pagani C9 test mule has been spotted numerous times and the official debut is set for March at the Geneva Auto Salon.
According to the Italian website Al Volante, the name Huayra has been officially registrated. HOORAY! The nearly unpronounceable name is linked to the company’s tradition of branding its products after famous winds of the world. Huayra is the word for wind from the ancient South American language of Quechua.
The Pagani Huayra will pack a 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, producing around 700bhp and more than 730lb-ft of torque. The gear changes will be performed by a seven-speed sequential set-up, sourced from British transmission specialist X-trac.
On the subject of design it will have gull-wing doors, special air brakes at the back and be made from the ultra-expensive, ultra-lightweight carbon-titanium material. A kerb weight at around 1230kg is rumoured.
