The much-anticipated successor to the Pagani Zonda, the grandiosely-monikered Huayra (the name honors an ancient Andean god of wind) was first unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. While it shares many of advances employed by its celebrated sibling, it also introduces a number of its own automotive innovations.
Thanks to the combination of super-lightweight materials used in its construction -- including its carbotanium monocoque and titanium exhaust system, Pagani's latest hypercar weighs in at less than 3,000 lbs. Meanwhile its equally-advanced active aerodynamics, which consist of four moveable flaps positioned on each corner of the car, and active suspension allow it to optimally balance drag coefficient and downforce, depending on the prevailing requirements.
As a result of its specially-designed 6.0-liter Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V12, which is capable of sending a monstrous 700 bhp to the rear wheels via the car’s seven-speed sequential gearbox, the Huayra can reach 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 230 mph.
