A Mighty Wind: Named after the Andean god of wind (of course), the Huayra is an artful offering.
A Pagani is more than just a car. It is a rolling work of art, painstakingly created and beautifully rendered.
Horacio Pagani’s customers don’t seem to mind the brand’s obscurity. If you can peel off an easy million for a new Huayra, which starts at $849,000, this car may be for you.
It weighs less than 3,000 pounds and has 720 horsepower. Oh, and it also has more than 737 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of a new 60-degree, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 developed expressly for the car by the engine wizards at AMG, replacing the 7.3-liter naturally aspirated AMG V-12 in the Zonda. The mid-mounted engine drives the rear wheels through a seven-speed, single clutch automated manual transmission built by Xtrac, the British company that makes trannys for F1 cars and Le Mans prototypes.
