The successor to the Pagani Zonda, the Huayra's name references Wayra Tata, a wind god worshiped by the Puruhá Quechuas and Aymaras of the Bolivian and Peruvian Andes prior to European colonization.
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.
The Pagani Huayra features a modified variant of the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series's 6.0L 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. Power is rated at 720 hp (537 kW) and torque at 811 ft·lb (1100 N·m).
The Huayra uses gullwing doors and has two pairs of aerodynamic flaps, one on the front and another at the rear. When at speed, these flaps are used to generate downforce. The Huayra also uses features first seen in the Pagani Zonda R.
In Forza Motorsport 7, there are two special livery variants of the Huayra with a Totino's theme, each named Pagani Huayra Totino's Edition 1 and Pagani Huayra Totino's Edition 2. These can be obtained only in the United States by purchasing Totino's Pizza Rolls with a special redeemable code for Forza Motorsport 7.
