Masterpiece the armenia wind god Huayra: an ultimate artwork of Hypers
How could it be an artwork?
Wayra Tata ("Father of Wind"), also known as Huayra-tata, was a god worshiped by the Puruhá Quechuas and Aymaras of the Bolivian and Peruvian Andes prior to European colonization. The god was represented as a human figure with two heads and serpents coiled around him from head to foot. He was associated with hurricane winds and fertilizing rains, and was believed to manifest himself in the form of wind, especially whirlwind.

Ancient legends of the Aymara tell us of Huayra Tata, god of wind, who commands the breezes, winds,and blizzards that invade the mountains, cliffs and hills of the Andean highlands. It is told that Huayra Tata resides deep in the high peaks and valleys, abandoning them only to demonstrate his power to his wife, Pachamama, goddess of mother earth. With his power Huayra Tata was able to lift the waters from lake Titicaca and rain them down on the fertile Pachamama. When Huayra Tata sleeps, the waters and rivers lay quiet.
Huayura was presented in 2011 Geneva International Motor Show,
this may looks finished car,actully it is not.Despite years development its far from complete.
Q: Why do people in Italy want to name their work with the name of the Armenian god?
A:Actully,he is not Itallian,he is an Argentine.
besides under F1 driver Juan Manuel Fangio's suggestion he came to Modena Italy
and later established his factory in 1991.
Horacio Pagani wanted after making Zonda built a car that has both speed gentleness and could be use daily for four seasons.
For now i'm telling to you how i love this art piece.I was attracted by that gullwing doors from the first,because i always love gullwings unique design.The gullwing was original by 1951 Mercedes Benz 300SL.Beginning was the body design frame to blocked the door opening,It is a very helpless move.
And Mercedes participated 24 hours Le Mans and won the championship with 300sl in 1952.
Causing Merc's unintentional gaving the ideas and influenced the other car factory in the future.

My tast of beautiful things was very rigor but i fell in deep love in this car when a see Mr.Horacio Pagani's design.I was astonished when i saw this car and thinking this is awesome！ There is such a art piece exist！
Althought there were too many manufacturers building gullwings they still can not touching me at all.
inspire by da vinci
For Horacio Pagani to creat that emotion means combining art and engineering.A phlilosphythat is involved from his life fascination with Leonardro Da Vinci .
Reading a article about Da Vinci i fond he said that
"art and science could work together"
When i read that lt like a window opened and i discover the path i wanted to followed.

Mr. Pagani wants his car to look both beautiful and practical.That is also my tast what was have a nice exterior and performance otherwise it will be no different with a Ming vase.
Mr.Pagani requires every part not only the best materials, but also crafted, even a bolt,mean to be a work of art. About this, what I appreciate is not what he have created, but Mr. Pagani's spirit of keep moving and ultimate pursuit.
Personally i do especially love this one,cause i love matte black painting alot Credit Google
After wooden Huayra model is done, Mr. Pagani stares the model for hours to understanding the design from all angles and think about the design. Thus i do appreciate Mr. Pagani's persistence, meticulousness and care. It is because of such hard work, dedication and Intention that we could have chance to see a work today, a seemingly more reasonable detail, perhaps in his eyes, but years and years of research, thinking, art and Combination of refine.

The problem of many high-performance cars face with, in his view, is a compromise - the installation of the rear wing and the spoiler. He wants the car to have a streamlined shape that is not being destroyed. The inspiration from the airplane wing is designed by Pagani. The computer-controlled and independently-operated four flaps provide downforce only when needed, so his active aerodynamics eliminate the compromise of the rear wing.
Pagani has the world's best synthetic materials, starting with carbon fiber woven fabrics, raw materials from Japan, weaving in Germany, and finally resin treatment in Italy.Only Pagani knows the whole recipe.After embedding in the mold, vacuum packaging is placed in the pressure cooker for baking. It is necessary to control the reasonable time pressure and temperature, 135 °C after two hours it changed hard. After confirming the baking, it will be sent to trimmed to the size required by the body. At the seam when making the body, the texture must be Perfect alignment, otherwise it will be rejected.
However, in order to make this car, he needs to work with dozens of other manufacturers to make the remaining 95% of the accessories.
Therefore, Pagani's uncompromising tough spirit, he has spent many years building an international network to verify reliable assistance to manufacturers.
CNC precision Parts
The first is ASPA S.L.R in Modena, which is the production of aircraft components, the use of components in the maritime industry.
The factory was dirty, smelly, and noisy. It was not very consistent with Pagani's style of action. In order to convince Pagani that they could make parts for him, ASPA built an independent facility next to the main factory and met mechanization,lights and order. Aluminium components are manufactured in a sterile, clean air environment. In the early days of the Huayra design, the two-piece wheel was designed. After ASPA made the first component a year later, Pagani had some doubts. I am not sure that there are too many bolts that may break the component pair. I don't think the beauty is the best. so it's like if you can make the hub one, it's lighter and the manufacturing and cost less.

He chose Salt Interiors, a Turin company that is a handmade leather manufacturer that has been producing luxury interiors for cars, private jets, and helicopters for decades. Salt's operations manager once said: "Working with Pagani It is very important to us, but it is also a challenge. What he wants is difficult to achieve, because he is very particular about it. He always wants to reach the peak, so there is no place for mistakes.” Pagani wants to touch the visual, sensorial, even smelling.
The leather that Pagani wanted was very feminine. Therefore, he showed manager a female handbag. The manager said: "This is not suitable for the daily use of the car. The material must be very durable." One year later Salt came up with the idea of making a leather that soft as female handbag and durable after hundreds of tests.
For strengthen the body, Pagani has made a new material, carbon-tanium. We know that carbon fiber is a woven material that will become hard after baking. When weaving, they add titanium alloy. The body get harder than ordinary carbon fiber. Huayra also uses a racing-style double A-arm suspension for lightweight, performance, and aesthetics. The cockpit is made of the hardest synthetic material and then strengthened with titanium. Each frame is fixed with 8 titanium bolts. When necessary, the bolts will fail. When the side impacts, 8 titanium bolts will be used to disconnected, the rear chassis will separate from the body to dissipate the huge impact force, allowing the owner to have a chance to survive. When facing the front, the chrome-molybdenum steel frame is designed to shrink and absorb impact.
Because it is equipped with AMG V12 twin-turbo(former Zonda was carring AMG V12 natural aspirated), the sound is naturally not good as natural aspirated, so to solve this problem he came to Germany's Heubach MHG Exhaust, hand-built exhaust pipe, also made of ultra-light titanium, and The heat-resistant aerospace material nickel alloy No. 6, using hydroforming technology, adds water to the tube and then pressurizes it to 1500 atmospheres to stretch the titanium into the desired shape. Before the exhaust gas is discharged, it will enter an echo chamber to amplify the sound. In the echo chamber, there will be a gap in the exhaust pipe, so that the smooth airflow will flow out and make a beast-like barking.
There are other more details. Each accessory has Pagani's LOGO, tailor-made leather suitcase, the inlet of the supersonic jet, , comparable to the suit customization carbon, the fine aluminum shift lever.

Mr. Pagani is the ultimate pursuit of every detail. Every idea is perfected with every thought. Everywhere is to find ways to satisfy customers. What we see is actually a car, but we could feel It not just a car.It telling us one man’s intentions, persistence, pursuit, and uncompromise. It’s for these reasons that Mr. Pagani has achieved his present achievements, and why, I have always agreed and appreciate Mr. Horacio Pagani’s creative concept and design.
