The 2012 Pagani Huayra is the successor to the Pagani Zonda supercar. Its name references Huayra-tata, a South American wind god.
The Pagani Huayra features a modified variant of the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series's 6.0 L twin-turbocharged V12, codenamed M275, although the Huayra's engine is codenamed M158 and uses a revamped ECU and intercooler, as well as turbo lag reduction with smaller turbochargers.
The Pagani Huayra's engine produces 720 hp (730 PS; 537 kW) and 811 ft·lb (1100 Nm) of torque. It is capable of doing 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h).
"When you think of Pagani cars, it’s natural to think of craftsmanship, performance, and a Platonic ideal of automotive beauty. All of those elements come together in the Pagani Huayra, the latest supercar from Horacio Pagani, and perhaps his most compelling automotive vision yet. It’s easy to get lost in the visual elements—the gullwing doors or those audacious rear view mirrors. The same goes for the interior—a lush mixture of aluminum, leather, and fine Swiss craftsmanship (for the dashboard instruments). The Huayra has been a long time in the making—Pagani began work on the car in 2003. But, like all works of art—automotive or otherwise—true beauty takes time." - Forzamotorsport.net description for Forza Motorsport 5, Forza Horizon 2, and Forza Motorsport 6
The Pagani Huayra is a very fast supercar, excelling mostly in top speed. The Huayra can reach up to 234 mph (377 km/h), which exceeds its real life top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h). The car's great launch and acceleration are due to its high amount of torque; it can do 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds, another trait of a high-end supercar. Conversely, one thing to note is that the Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster usually has a higher PI rating due to its better handling and braking; this is because the Zonda Cinque Roadster is lighter by several hundred pounds/kilograms. The Huayra's weight prevents it from handling as well as the Zonda Cinque Roadster (handling worse by a few hundredths of a lateral G), although it still handles better than most of the past road-going Zonda models.
