Rumour: Pagani C9 To Be Called Huayra?

More Spyshots Pagani C9

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.

  1. If by kidding you mean refusing to keep it in the sub-$20K range so that you and your buddies can trade up from Jettas, yes. lol

    Its been heavily disguised, expect a mind blowing showpiece when it debuts.

  2. I was obviously referring to the new name. Look, you donĀ“t know me, I just want to tell you that you never know who can you be talking with on internet. And yes, I also expect a masterpiece of engineering and design when it debuts.

  3. It was a joke. But, you’re right. I had no right to assume that you can afford a Jetta. lol (Please don’t get upset and start posting pics of your 2001 Porsche Carrera…lol…It’s not that serious.)

    I think the name reads beautifully, but I would be curious to hear someone pronounce it.
