I want a Lotus 2-Eleven, a Ferrari 599XX, an Evora GTE and I’ve always wanted a Range Rover too. Sadly, even the garage in my dream world has rules and picking just 10 cars to fill it is as hard as choosing my favorite child. As a result, each of my Top 10 dream cars serves a special purpose, and none are quite so purposeful as a Honda Odyssey.
The new Pagani Huayra continues the brand’s unique design language from its insect feeler-like mirrors to the unmistakeable afterburner-style exhaust.
The video featured below is packed with details perfect for car geeks. It dives into detail about the production process, telling you about the complex materials that the Huayra is made up of, and the important safety of the fuel-tank (It cuts off fuel as soon as it detects a collision), among many other tech-heavy details.
If mechanical specifics aren’t your thing, you can just look at the borderline car-porn of the fully finished product and the sheet-metal underneath it. You also get plenty of wonderful motor sounds as the Huayra zips around the track. Click the jump to see for yourself.
Ever wonder what it takes to build one of the world’s finest Italian exotic automobiles? Pagani has decided to share a documentary showcasing how its Huayra was born, and how it’s built.
We’ve seen a lot of automotive-related videos in our time, and this may just be the finest 15 minutes you can ever spend on an online video. Pagani really needs no introduction, being one of the few automakers that have created a formidable opponent to Italian rivals Ferrari and Lamborghini. There are no automotive enthusiasts in the world who haven’t heard of the Pagani Zonda, and now its successor, the Huayra, will be capturing our attention for years to come.
Watch the documentary after the break.
If you like supercars, then you’ll love the Geneva Motor Show. It’s a venue for niche automakers like Pagani and Koenigsegg to display their latest products, plus each year in Geneva the two best known exotic Italian automakers, Lamborghini and Ferrari, reveal their latest models.
For a look at these, plus all kinds of wild machines you’ve probably never heard of, watch the video below:
The list of the Top 10 most expensive new cars is even more shocking that you might expect. Released by Forbes, you can forget the Ferrari 458 or the $300,000 Lamborghini Aventador because even at the low end of the scale these models start at right around the one million mark.
Contrary to published reports, the Pagani Huayra supercar will go on sale in America in the near(ish) future. The brand’s only previous model, the Zonda, was never federalized and it looked as though the unpronounceably-named Huayra would suffer the same fate, with Pagani failing to get an airbag exception from the U.S. government.
There are supercars, and then there are supercars. Sure the Bugatti Veyron holds the world record for the fastest production car, but as impressive as that is, it will never hold the hearts of auto enthusiasts like the Ferrari F40.
If those similar yet different vehicles represent two distinct categories of supercar, the Pagani Zonda falls in the latter. Built in Italy, the Zonda is a true exotic and makes even the Enzo seem as common as a Camry by comparison. (Pagani built just 12 Zondas a year during the car’s run).
But the ultimate Zonda is the “R”, a track-only special model that weighs just 2,359 lbs. Powered by a 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine that makes an incredible 750-hp and 524 ft-lbs of torque, the Zonda R can hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and holds the Nurburgring record for production-based cars at 6:47.
But perhaps more amazing than all these statistics is how that big AMG V12 engine sounds, especially mated to a sequential shift box. Video of the Zonda R on track has surfaced before, but listening to this engine never gets old. This latest clip shows the car on track (with the Huayra, the Zonda’s successor) at Adria International Speedway in Northern Italy. Behind the wheel is former F1 driver Andrea Montermini. Turn your speakers up and enjoy!
