While hardly the household name that Ferrari is, Pagani models are far more exotic and rare, especially because they’ve never been available in North America – until now.

Set to get its world premiere at the Geneva Auto Show, Pagani’s second all new model, the Huayra, will be offered to customers in the U.S., marking the first time America’s wealthiest could purchase one of the ultra exclusive automobiles.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to represent the Pagani brand in the United States and we look forward to the successful launch of the Huayra,” said Horacio Pagani in a statement.

With overall styling similar to the Zonda, but with a large catfish front end design, the Huayra is powered by a twin-turbocharged Mercedes AMG V12 engine making over 700-hp. As for the unpronounceable name, it aptly refers to the god of wind.

With AutoGuide from its launch, Colum previously acted as Editor-in-Chief of Modified Luxury & Exotics magazine where he became a certifiable car snob driving supercars like the Koenigsegg CCX and racing down the autobahn in anything over 500 hp. He has won numerous automotive journalism awards including the Best Video Journalism Award in 2014 and 2015 from the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). Colum founded Geared Content Studios, VerticalScope's in-house branded content division and works to find ways to integrate brands organically into content.
