Wealthy American car collectors have something to look forward to by mid 2013: Pagani’s first U.S. marketed supercar hitting dealer showrooms.
That’s especially big news considering a little over a year ago the company said delivery would have to wait until 2015 because the car failed to meet U.S. airbag regulations. At the time, Pagani said it would have to invest 4 million Euros in order to bring its cars up to spec. Regardless, it seems the changes weren’t as drastic as the company originally thought because Horacio Pagani confirmed the company’s plan to begin U.S. delivery mid 2013.
“The welcome we have received by the American audience and car enthusiasts in 2011 made us eager to return in 2012 with an even stronger presence and we cannot wait to see the first U.S.-spec Pagani Huayras on North American soil in mid-2013,” he said.
Of course, there won’t be many sent Stateside and they won’t come cheap when they arrive: pricing is expected to start around $1.4 million.
But if you can afford it, there’s a crazy car behind that price tag. With an AMG-tuned V12, the car makes 700 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque and can slingshot to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. It also has a top speed of 235 mph not to mention one of the sexiest interiors you’ll ever see.
