The Pagani Huayra succeeds the Pagani Zonda and costs up to $1.5 million. The super car comes fitted with a 6.0-litre bi-turbo V12 engine that produces 720 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. This engine has been developed by Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division.
The Huayra can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and has a top speed 372 km/h. It uses a 7-speed sequential gearbox, which transmits the power to the rear wheels of the car. The Huayra was introduced in 2011 and its worldwide unveiling took place at the Geneva Motor Show the same year.
Earlier this summer, during the #PaganiRoadTrip, photographer Richard Thompson captured some stunning images of the Huayra at the famous White Sands Museum in New Mexico. The exterior paint of the car, which has shades of white, black and grey, goes well with the background and the Huayra simply looks astonishing in the photo-shoot.
Interestingly the Huayra is named after Wayra Tata, which means the “God of the winds” in Quechua, which is the official language of the Inca Empire. It is the fastest car to go around the Top Gear Test Track. GTspirit has also driven the car and the team here was rather impressed by the Huayra.
