Surprise, surprise – it will be road-legal.
We first head about Pagani’s plans to introduce a new hardcore version of the Huayra positioned above the BC in January this year, when we also saw a prototype of the model testing on public roads. Now, a new video shows the supercar being tested on the Franciacorta circuit in Italy and it’s a sight to behold. We were hungry for some track action with the new Huayra and here it is for all of us to enjoy.
The 5:11-minute clip uploaded by 19Bozzy92 on YouTube shows a camouflaged prototype lapping the track at a relatively good pace. While the speed is obviously high, we are pretty sure that’s nowhere near the car’s limits as it looks as if it is glued to the asphalt – no body roll, no squealing tires, no drama at all.
The Huayra Never Dies:
According to the video description, the Pagani seen in this video will wear the Huayra Dragon moniker and will be produced in more than just a single example. Initially, the car was commissioned by tuning studio TopCar design but eventually, the Italian exotic car manufacturer decided to launch a limited series of five units. It’s important to note that these should wear a different name.
From what we know so far, no major mechanical improvements will be made but we expect the twin-turbo V12 sourced from AMG to deliver a little more than the 745 horsepower and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Newton-meters) of the Huayra BC. Power should reach rear wheels through a seven-speed single-clutch automatic transmission with paddle-shifts.
The Zonda’s Still Around, Too:
As you can see from the attached video, the aerodynamics of the supercar will be dramatically more aggressive than the rest of the Huayra versions. There’s a massive diffuser at the back, a giant fixed wing that extends into the roof through a large fin, and new front air intakes. Despite the in-the-face body kit, the car is expected to retain its road-legal status.
