Let’s start on a peculiar note, and it’s pronounced “H-wire-ah”. It is the successor to the Pagani Zonda, which was a powerful type car. And it gets its name from a South American wind god named Huayra Tata. The Huayra is a mid-engine hypercar with a better power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron SS.
The 1,350-kg Huayra uses a 60-degree V12 with 6.0-liter AMG source with two turbos. And it gets 700 hp and 728 pounds of torque. In better competitive terms, it goes from zero to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and “more than” 230 mph. There’s a seven-speed sequence that drives only the rear wheels, and the exciting fact about the gearbox is that it’s not dual-clutch. Horacio Pagani believes that weight gain (70 kg extra) over a normal sequence was not the type of compensation he wanted to do.
Another interesting fact about the Huayra is that it employs four aerodynamic air brake type fins at the corners of the car. This is to maximize downforce and minimize drag depending on various factors such as throttle position, steering angle, and braking force. It also has excellent gull doors and a titanium exhaust. The Huayra is just a great conversation piece.
The most recent car version is the Huayra BC, named after Pagani’s first customer, the late Benny Caiola. Only 20 pieces were formed for this model. And each piece sells for £ 2.1 million
