2017 Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta – Pebble Beach Debut

It has a name!  We knew this car was special on sight.  Next to the Huayra BC and Huayra Roadster… the Barchetta only somewhat fits in. This is a more brutal, hard-edged design in the front and rear.  Zonda lights also look like nothing else. Yet what is this?  Chopped windshield glass?  Snorkel intake and BC-like tall wing?!  Did we render something like this last summer?  [Yes=] And the coup de grace?  Shrouded rear wheels and extreme underbody aero and rear splitter.  Stunning. Here is Huayra Roadster in front of Barchetta, plus Zonda Cinque which is similar apart from the …

2014 Pagani Huayra Tempesta – RM Sotheby’s 2017 Preview

It is easy to lump the Huayra into the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 competitive set.  But in actuality, the only vehicle with a similar price/performance quotient is the Bugatti Chiron.  (As well as Koenigsegg and perhaps W Motors if we’re generous.) Pricing for Pagani’s never leaves much change from a $3-million cashier’s check.  While its delivery timeframes are easily 18 months or longer. So whenever one comes up for sale, particularly a US-legal model, it is newsworthy. This Huayra Tempesta was the first-ever customer car in the states and one of only 100 made in total.  It is equipped with …

Goodwood 2017 Festival of Speed – Hillclimb Mega Gallery in 200 Photos

Goodwood is as glorious as ever this year! It seems like every supercar that matters is at Lord March’s estate – along with thousands of adoring fans. The clear stars of the show are the glorious Ford GT and the Bugatti Chiron. And of course the Lamborghini Centenario and the Aston Martin Vulcan.   Don’t forget the new Pagani Huayra BC. And clearly the McLaren 720S and world-premiere 570S cabrio are worth seeing in action. Don’t forget the fresh-facelifted Maserati GranTurismo or a back-to-back look at the Panamera’s new choice of sedan or wagon bodystyles.  They’re all represented here! Watching …

2017 PAGANI Huayra Roadster – Official Debut

  Pagani’s latest creations always shake the Earth a little bit for hypercar fans.  This is a machine that makes a 918 Spyder feel like a Boxster. And so it is for the most beautiful Pagani yet: the Huayra Roadster. Twin rooves come standard: a glass targa panel and a soft-top kit for the frunk. Both promise an easy way to enjoy the AMG V12’s 770HP right over your ear. Added bonus for the Huayra Roadster?  You have a much better view of the rear wings and their g-force reactive moves around corners.  These slim planes of carbon create active …

2017 PAGANI Huayra BC – Hyperlight Aero + Xtrac Race Drivetrain for Street-Legal Masterpiece

Welcome to the hottest new Pagani! The BC is named after Horacio’s very first customer, Benny Caiola, and is a hell of a tribute indeed. Every body panel except the roof is all new for this track-ready beast of a machine.  Power is up, weight is radically down, and a new active diff and Xtrac racing paddle-shifter will drop laptimes down radically as well. And one of its best details?  One that will send your happiness quotient through the clouds?! Unlike the Pagani Zonda R or Zonda Revolucione, the Huayra BC will be fully street-legal worldwide.  Yes, this includes the US …

2014 Pagani Zonda Revolucion Adds DRS Dynamic Downforce + 50HP for Ultimate Time-Attack Prowess

If the 2009-2010 Pagani Zonda R is shocking in its depth of changes versus the ‘regular’ Zonda, this R-EVO model honors the near-perfection of the original model. Even so, the ‘Evo’ version of any supercar is generally far better. Benefiting from real-world tuning and production tweaks, the Zonda Revolucion is no exception to this rule. Power from the AMG V12 is up to 800 ponies, while the on-track dynamics are massively enhanced by a new Drag Reduction System out back. Controlled via a steering-wheel button, DRS can selectively engage as needed on track, or a two-second push of the button …

Hypercar Heroes – 750HP, 2.7s 2010 PAGANI Zonda R is 7 Minutes in Heaven

No study of hypercar heroes would be complete without the phenomenal Pagani Zonda R from 2009 to 2010. Just 15 examples of this hardcore track machine were produced, with pricing of around $2.5-million each. With typical Pagani thoroughness, the Zonda R’s creation is far more that a set of slick tires and lightweight carpet. As you can see from almost every angle, the Zonda R employs an all-new aerodynamic setup. Giant lower intake scoops and splitter could cut off a pedestrian at the ankles, with the sharp wedge of a carbon-fiber nose an effective cleaver to finish that dark job. …

Hypercar Heroes! 2015 Pagani Huayra Up Close and Personal

  In the hypercar class of 2015, the Pagani Huayra is one for true drivers. Brutal power plus exquisite beauty. The Huayra is so rare that Ferrari and McLaren will have made 10X the number of LaFerrari’s and P1’s by the end of 2015. Among the five total dealerships in the United States, we’re thrilled that Pagani of Dallas brought two cars to the recent Houston Auto Show. One customer car shown in blue and yellow for the show itself, and the bare-carbon demo car for display outside one of Houston’s glitziest hotels. The Huayra is easy to fall in …
