Pagani Huayra supercar revealed
Pagani showed off its latest creation, the Huayra at the Geneva Motor Show. Light as a feather and powered by a roaring V12 with twin turbos, the Pagani Huayra is sure to be fast, very fast.
The Huayra is built in carbon-titanium, with its gull-wing doors that include a good portion of the roof. The Huayra’s small size made it possible to reduce the rear overhang, providing a more neutral behavior in extreme conditions and improving safety in the event of a rear crash. The Huayra weighs about 1350 kg. The side air intakes behind the front wheels generate a negative pressure inside the wheel, causing a draw that effectively lowers the coefficient of aerodynamic drag and downforce generating front. Weight distribution is 44-percent front and 56-percent rear.
Mercedes-AMG provides the 12-cylinder biturbo engine which produces 700 hp and a torque of over 1000 Nm. The power and torque is transferred to the wheels via a seven-speed sequential gearbox cross and a dual-disc clutch. The Huayra can apparently do 0-100 kph in 3.3 seconds and reach speeds above 370 km/h. The large 85-liter tank ensures a longer range travel. The light titanium exhaust system is a direct application of technologies racing on a high-performance road car.
Inside, the central touch screen high-definition multimedia system is the heart of the vehicle for the control of audio functions, satellite navigation, Bluetooth phone and secondary functions. Leather upholstery with carbon-trims and milled-aluminium parts litter the interior.
