New Pagani Huayra video review

In a world first, we review Pagani's Zonda replacement - the spectacular 720bhp Huayra - on video

New Pagani Huayra video review

The all-new Pagani Huayra effectively replaces the wonderful Zonda and is hugely significant for this tiny, bespoke supercar manufacturer. Should you want one you’ll need 845,000 euros plus local taxes. Over 90 orders have already been taken and even when the new bigger factory comes on line next year Pagani will still only build 40 per annum.  The Huayra has a carbo-titanium tub (carbonfibre with titanium strands weaved into the mix for added strength). There’s a transverse 7-speed single-clutch automated manual gearbox mounted behind its unique AMG-built 6-litre twin-turbocharged V12, active aerodynamics to reduce drag, improve stability and braking performance, ceramic brakes, active ride height under braking… the list goes on and on. Find out if it can escape the Zonda’s shadow in the video below. And read the full 14-page story in issue 172 of evo, on sale and on iPad on Wednesday June 20. Our world exclusive first web drive of the new Pagani Huayra is this way.
