Video EVO Magazine Drives 2012 Pagani Huayra

In a world first, EVO Magazine reviewed Pagani’s Zonda replacement – the 730bhp Huayra. The bodywork of the Pagani Huayra featuring gull-wing doors is made from carbon titanium. This advanced composite material was first tested on the Zonda R and combines the highest levels of rigidity with maximum lightness. The total weight of the Italian mid-engined sports car is 1,350kg.

The Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V12. Displacement is 5,980cc and power peaks at 700 horsepower and 1,000Nm of torque. The power and enormous torque is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed sequential gearbox cross and a dual-disc clutch. This enables the Huayra to accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in 3.3 seconds, while its top speed is an impressive 370km/h.

Pagani has already received over 85 confirmed orders for the Huayra. This year Pagani is set to produce 25 Huayra’s and another 40 will follow in 2013. The first deliveries will be made this month.

    The squeaking is because the rear clam shell wasn’t closed properly. Normally it doesn’t make that noise!

    EVO gets the jump on everybody when it comes to Pagani because ……. the Editorial Director : Harry Metcalfe ….. owns a Zonda ( and has done so for years )

    Funny how being a paying customer can have its advantages .
