Pagani lets the cat-fish out of the bag on Huayra w/video



So after some other publications broke the embargo on Pagani’s latest hypercar and unleashed some of the shots of the Huayra on the interwebs, Pagani themselves have officially lifted the veil on their replacement for the Zonda, dubbed the Huayra.



Having taken a few moments to gather it all in, the general styling cues of the Huayra are definitely lifted from the predecessing Zonda, especially the quad-stacked titanium tailpipes and tail lights.



The front of the Huayra has been the cardinal talking point, with most of the car community likening it to a catfish. But then again, Pagani has made it known that all those flaps and slats on the bumper keep the front end planted at high speeds and in corners. To counter those speeds, the massive brakes get some help from the air flaps located on the rear. We're guessing they work the conventional way and lift up during hard braking or above certain speeds.



Just like the Zonda, the Huayra looks to have enough flaps, slats, flares and strakes to keep a light aircraft steady in flight. Plus, gone are the conventional swing doors that have been replaced by the more in-your-face gullwing hatch.



All those aero aids will come in handy when the bespoke AMG-built 6-liter twin-turboed V12 hits the stratospheric end of the tacho and sends the Huayra towards its top speed of near 370km/h.



Reaching speeds like that is capable due to the nuclear-power plant of an engine producing over 700hp and 1002Nm of torque that is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Of course, weighing in at just under 1,360kg can’t hurt either.



Step into the cabin and you’ll be greeted by the typical over-the-top Pagani luxury that the Zonda would have had you expect. The cockpit is slathered in leather with exposed aluminium and carbon fiber pieces giving it that raw touch if masculinity the Huayra is capable of. The multi-function display and controls all glow a shade of blue that will surely be easy to spot.



All that is left now is for videos of it to pop up online to give us aural orgasms with the soundtrack of that monstrous V12 being flogged on the roads.

I still prefer Zonda Cinque over this Ah Huay... but the interior looked cool though. I kinda have the impression that the design of this car is somehow meant to cater for the Chinese market... :hmmmm:

Hmm IMHO doesn't look as good as the Zonda, especially at the front. The rear also like it's copying quite a bit from Enzo/458 styling. Interior still looks good though, still similar to the Zonda.

Hehe yea, I guess the front airdam/splitters/bumper design which I feel not as good as the Zonda's.

still prefer the zonda. the front end weird mouth don't fit me i guess. perhaps black in colour will make it less noticeable.

but it's true, whether i like it or not, still can't afford it :bawling:
