Confession time- Defining Drives has a slight crush on Horacio Pagani and his mind blowing products, having fallen head-over-heels for every single Pagani there’s ever been. And you won’t be surprised to know that the Huayra is no exception.
It may be entering its elderly years now, but unlike ol’ Trumpy (and that *stunning* toupee), the Pagani Huayra hasn’t aged one bit since its youth. It is still, and presumably always will be, achingly beautiful. Every curve, every line, is seamless. Surely it doesn’t get any better than this?
HINT: It does.
Powered by 12 of AMG’s finest cylinders, the 6.0 litre twin-turbocharged V12 produces a cacophony of sounds similar to the Grim Reaper’s own chariot- turbos whistling, V12 growling, it is utterly immense.
Inside, the craftsmanship, that could only be from a Pagani, is on full display. Leather, solid aluminium and carbon-fibre are blended to perfection, resulting in an interior that you’d be more than happy to sell your kidneys for. And yet, despite possessing one of the most luxurious interiors ever to appear in a car, the Huayra weighs less than Gina Rinehart. (Okay maybe not quite, but still, 1350kg is mightily impressive for a car of this size and design.)
A combination of low weight, and high-outputs (544 kw and 1000Nm) enables the Huayra to rocket from standstill up to 100km/h in a frankly ridiculous 3.2 seconds- despite all the power being sent exclusively to the rear wheels. Top speed is estimated to exceed 370km/h.
The Huayra isn’t just a form of transport, it’s an experience. An experience that excites the senses like nothing else, thanks to it’s breathtaking array of noises and awe-inspiring artistry. It is, in a word, electric. Find one. Steal one. Drive one. For the Huayra won’t be around forever-a day in which the sun will dim and the stars will fade.
Baby don’t leave us.
