2014 PAGANI Huayra Carbon Edition in 200 Amazing Photos

pagani gif

How is Pagani’s sales team performing in the face of the all-new P1 and LaFerrari? So well!  They are in heaven right now after the US import process finally approved the Huayra after about four years of effort — and more than one real-life crash test. Wrecking a million dollars on purpose!? The US market really is worth it for Pagani — and we are thrilled to have them. Pagani’s huge rise to greatness has avoided the key pitfall of many hypercar brands: unsustainable growth. Luckily, the hand-crafted carbon-fiber chassis and bodywork of the Huayra makes any kind of volume production a distant, distant daydream. Not only does Pagani lay and autoclave each piece itself from the fabric forward; nearly every metal component is also machined (on site, from billet alloy blocks) one-by-one as well. This ensures two things: — Horacio’s dream of every single component being a work of …

How is Pagani’s sales team performing in the face of the all-new P1 and LaFerrari? So well!  They are busy at the moment, can we call you back? Pagani’s huge rise to greatness has avoided the key pitfall of many hypercar brands: unsustainable growth. Luckily, the hand-crafted carbon-fiber chassis and bodywork of the Huayra makes any kind of volume production a distant, distant daydream. Not only does Pagani lay and autoclave each piece itself from the fabric forward; nearly every metal component is also machined (on site, from billet alloy blocks) one-by-one as well. This ensures two things: — Horacio’s dream of every single component being a work of art — even on its own — A waiting list for the still-made Zonda and new Huayra that stretches far beyond even Ferrari’s best wet dreams: 40-months and counting. This makes sense: Pagani has only put his name on about 95 …

McLaren Turbo – Secrets of Black Air – 1987 Buick GNX Story

1987_grand_national_gnx_13

Let’s start at the beginning, my personal vantage on the Buick GNX – before and after watching Black Air: The Buick Grand National Story. Here are three things you may not know about the 1987 Buick Grand National: Engine came first, car second. What sporty body could fit this 500HP boost-monster? Housing the huge McLaren turbocharger and intercooler hardware of the 3.8-liter V6 was the hardest part. It was a very sentimental project for the company, allowing unbridled execution of the super-car engine and total styling black-out. That high-gloss, rich paint was pure fantasy at the time. The GNX was the last car to roll down a celebrated car plant with nine decades of experience. One of the legendary first factories designed to take in iron ore on one side, and roll full cars out the other side. So, quite a few special things all went into the formation of the …

Best of 2013 Awards: 265MPH Hennessey Venom GT is Reigning Supercar King

CarRevsDaily - Supercar Showcase - Hennessey VENOM GT 18

If there is one Yankee hypercar that can really run with the bulls from Europe, it is the Hennessey Venom GT. WHat the Texas-based crew from Hennssey has proven since 2010 is nothing short of remarkable. In fact, this is the ultimate American exotic. The real thing. Refined and fine-tuned over the last seven years, the Venom GT is nothing short of: The Fastest Car in the World. Forget the NARDO for ultimate Vmax runs in the next generation of hypercars. Too bumpy. (Porsche may be working on this issue, but a resurfacing project visible from space should give advance notice that the track’s new owners are tidying up a bit.) Ehra Lessien? Too short! In Texas, the miles of superhighways run for hundreds of miles in every direction. A bit of special planning, and a Venom GT, delivers the below performance to awed crowds anytime. As long as the …

Supercar Showcase: 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Centenary Edition

CarRevsDaily Supercars 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish 30

The new Aston Martin Vanquish is looking mighty tempting these days. Fresh styling outside, fresh tech inside, and sprint performance finally worthy of its pricing. That pace is 4.1-seconds to 60mph, officially, in case you were wondering. This low-rev quickness is a huge improvement versus the previous drag times for the DBS thanks to a host of changes to the V12 engine to liberate more ferocity. The new paddle shifters for the automatic add versatility, letting drivers instantly blip down a gear or three or max exhaust bellow. The new styling is actually quite memorable and distinctive, particularly in one of the more atypical paint shades. The light blues are really magic, and many of the new reds and whites are also divine. Aston’s paint color order sheet is technically limitless: but having 40-plus color options pre-selected helps speed build and delivery times to very impressive levels. While not exactly …

Supercar Showcase: 2014 Audi R8 V8

2014-Audi-R8-V8-CarRevsDaily-22

If any supercar would be perfect for one of my “Fun” Car GIFs, it is the 2014 Audi R8! Some blue-sky thinking earlier: what supercar would I buy with my own money, or feel so strongly about to recommend it to a close family friend? Supercar is a broad term. Let us say: super $150,000 and available from a relatively mainstream manufacturer (with a broad dealer network), for ease of servicing. Not a 911 Turbo or GT-R, for the sake of argument. Today’s dream-car answer? The 2014 Audi R8 V8. Not the V10 or the V10 Plus. Just the humble ‘base’ model. A car so bad-ass – I bet you will doubt the car below is the base 4.2-liter V8 TFSI. I double checked. Yes. V8. Enjoy! 2014 Audi R8 V8 TFSI – Exterior Gallery 2014 Audi R8 V8 TFSI – Interior Gallery LED Demonstration You May Also Like:3.3s, 197MPH …
