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. Prior to its official unveiling in 2011, the Pagani Huayra had been a project since 2003.
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.
When you think of Pagani cars, it’s natural to think of craftsmanship, performance, and a platonic ideal of automotive beauty. The Huayra has been a long time in the making—as designer Horacio 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 6.0 L (5,980 cc) twin-turbocharged M275 V12 from the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series, with a codename of M158 and 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 737 ft·lb (1000 N·m), although the in-game versions of the Huayra feature a lower power output of 700 hp (522 kW).
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.
The Huayra is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.3 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, and a top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h), which is always exceeded in each Forza title.
Totino's Edition 1 / Totino's Edition 2
In Forza Motorsport 7, there are two special livery variants of the Huayra with a Totino's theme:
2012 Pagani Huayra Totino's Edition 1 (abbreviated as Pagani Totinos) - uses a black, yellow, and red livery
2012 Pagani Huayra Totino's Edition 2 (abbreviated as Huayra Totinos) - uses a black, white, and red livery
These can be obtained only in the United States by purchasing Totino's Pizza Rolls with a special redeemable code for Forza Motorsport 7 that unlocks these two Huayras and two sets of Driver Gear from October 2017 to April 2018.
In Forzavista, the Pagani Huayra's aerodynamic flaps will be retracted if either the front bonnet or engine cover are opened.
If the doors are not already opened, opening the engine cover will automatically open the doors and close them afterwards.
The headlights and taillights are automatically turned off if the front bonnet is opened.
The Huayra erroneously has its Sport Weight Reduction and Race Weight Reduction upgrades swapped around. Because of this, the Race Weight Reduction for the Huayra is actually less effective than the Sport Weight Reduction.
In Forza Motorsport 7, with the Totino's Edition variants, the Huayra is the only car in the Hypercar division that has a Collection Tier less than Tier 5 (Legendary).
