Bob Dylan’s classic song “Tangled Up in Blue” is one of his most complex songs, lyrically speaking. And today’s drool car, this fantastic Pagani Huayra, is one of the most complex supercars ever built. That the Pagani just so happens to be a brilliant shade of blue makes this car a perfect fit for the song. Fittingly, missing out on this spectacular Huayra might just leave you feeling as tangled up as the lovelorn singer of the song. Part of the reason for that is that it is beautiful inside and out, plus it offers jut about the most brutal performance of any car in the world.
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. Plenty of design cues have been borrowed from the Zonda, sure, but this car is unlike anything else on the road today. Moving inside, the design sticks with the beautiful mechanical theme. Most interesting to me is the exposed shift linkage and ubiquitous carbon fibre, although I get the feeling you could spend hours examining the cockpit and still find new and interesting bits. So, whether it’s the vicious performance or the brutal beauty of its design, the Huayra is bound to leave a mark on anyone who encounters it.
This bright blue Huayra is offered for sale by Amian Exclusive Cars. Here is what they have to say about it:
With close cooperation from suppliers such as Brembo, Pirelli, Aspa, Gruppo Dani, MHG Group, Sonus Faber and AMG, the entire automobile is hand crafted to the highest level of finish. Supreme performance and safety are assured via the unique active aerodynamics package, the carbon ceramic disc brake and the circuit inspired suspension systems.
And with only 4,500 km on the odometer, this accident-free Huayra is no doubt in great shape. But if you are thinking “I got to get to her somehow,” you should know that the asking price is a cool €2.1 million (£1.8 million). Still, this sure is an enticing blue Pagani that would be a blast to get all tangled up with.
