Friday Drool – A Mechanical Animal


Perhaps no other supercar maker is as focused on design as Pagani. And, for anyone else who places as much emphasis on the aesthetics of the car as its all-out performance, the Pagani Huayra should be at the top of your shopping list. Today’s Dubai Red Pagani Huayra exemplifies why. Even if you are already familiar with the incredible interior of the Huayra like me, perusing the photos of this 2013 masterpiece will still no doubt elicit some “oohs’ and “aahs.” Enveloped in carbon, leather, and metal, the inside of the Huayra is simply heaven for any aesthete with a mechanical inclination. But it’s so much more, with its 700-horsepower V12 thrumming away behind the driver. It’s gorgeous, sure, but it’s also an animal.  

The Huayra casts an imposing figure, especially with the gullwing doors and engine compartment open.  In that skeletonized state, the car is simultaneously gorgeous and intimidating. As far as the engine is concerned, Pagani decided to outsource the job of building the powerplant to the very capable experts at AMG. And while it is not an in-house powerplant, Pagani worked closely with Mercedes on the design of the 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V12. This bespoke powerplant produces 720 bhp and 738 lb-ft of torque, plenty of motivation to get the 1700-kg car moving. Once on the move, active aerodynamics either keep the Huayra glued to the ground or reduce drag to help achieve a higher top-end speed, depending on what the situation calls for. Naturally, the Huayra is among the fastest cars in the world, notching a sub-3 second 0 to 60 time and a top speed of 238 mph.

This stunner is currently sitting at Tom Hartley JNR. Here is what they have to say about it:

Chassis no 007 is 1 of only 100 examples to be produced of which only 19 are right-hand drive and only 4 of those UK cars, with the majority located in Asia and North America. Optional extras include: multi-layer paint, exposed carbon fibre in gloss finish, exterior aluminium set in titanium finish, Malevic premium leather interior, rosso stitching, interior aluminium set in titanium finish, extra large seat size, 6 piece luggage set, gold anodised finished wheels, dark red brake callipers. 

It’s just so amazing, this car. And, even though it’s not an Aston, the fact that it is Chassis 007 is pretty cool, don’t you think? With fewer than 3,000 miles on the clock, the 6-piece luggage set probably isn’t even worn in yet, either. And it even has both of its Huayra-shaped keys still, which is good, considering a replacement can run you about £2,900 ($3,700)!
