For the billionaire that’s tired of collecting Ferraris, Porsches and Lamborghinis, the 2013 Pagani Huayra presents an exciting opportunity to own a vehicle that’s one-of-a-kind. This isn’t just a car. It’s a work of art.
The 2013 Pagani Huayra is the follow-up to the Zonda, a debut model from the self-taught supercar auteur Horacio Pagani. With an all-new titanium-infused carbon fiber chassis, and the wheelbase has been stretched 2.75 inches over the Zonda, the Pagani Huayra is built for both performance and beauty. The suspension features double wishbones milled from billets of a copper-rich aluminum alloy called Avional, with pushrod-actuated Ohlins shocks.
The carbon fiber chassis was designed by Pagani himself. It features active aerodynamics, which consist of flaps at each corner of the car that can move independently and alter downforce according to inputs from sensors that measure speed, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, roll, and steering angle. The suspension automatically lowers the nose to increase the car’s angle of attack and increase downforce at speed.
The car weighs less than 3,000 pounds and has 720 horsepower. A 60-degree, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 provides 737 lb-ft of torque. The car retails for $1.2 Million and is available now.
