When people think of a hypercar, they typically think of uber cars like the Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari Enzo.
It's not often people think "Oh, Pagani!"
But that may all change due to its rising star quality and expanding facility. Oh, and the all-new Huayra.
While Pagani is a household name among Euro gearheads, it is still in the process of making its mark on the rest of the globe. As its pipeline is according to this story "full for the next three years" it's clear that the little auto maker in Modena is doing something right.
And when you consider the hefty pricetag of one the Zondas or Huayras, it's amazing that the company has amassed so much business. So, what makes it special?
Can it live up to other hypercars, like the Bugatti Veyron?
See what Steve Sutcliffe, of Autocar, has to say below.
...In the flesh the Huarya is breathtakingly beautiful from pretty much every angle, inside and out, and on the road it’s utterly exciting to drive. The highlights include its acceleration (ludicrous), traction (amazing), steering (old school wonderful), braking (immense) and its grip mid corner, all of which are in Veyron-plus category. Genuinely.
In truth, however, the Huarya is nothing like a Veyron to drive. It’s a far more intense car than the Bugatti in every dimension; noisier, edgier, more agile – much more agile – and instantly more exciting on the road...
Should I buy one?
The Huarya costs 840,000 euros (£666,000) plus local taxes, so call it not much change from one million euros to tuck one up on your drive. Is it worth it? Yes. It’s arguably the most exclusive, best looking, best driving supercar there has ever been, Veyron included.
And if you’re serious, get your order in fast – because despite costing four times more than the new McLaren, Pagani’s order books are full for the next three and a half years. Some order book – I make that 80 million Euros and counting. But then the Huarya is truly some car.
