Under the hood
Pagani partnered with Mercedes Benz AMG in building the Huayra’s unique twin turbocharged 6. 0L V12 engine. With a peak output of 720 horsepower at 5800 rpm generating a 740 lb-ft torque at just 3, 500 rpm. Realized with smaller turbos, a different intercooler configuration and re-programmed ECU settings. This hypercar will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3. 0 seconds and has a top speed of 230 mph.
The Pagani Huayra includes a carbon-titanium shell and has gull-wing doors. The seats are designed for long drives. The car is shaped like an elliptical win and has flaps on the rear. If the driver suddenly turns the wheel, the flaps act to prevent body roll. And when braking the flaps lift to behave as air brakes. To provide stopping power the hypercar includes special rear air brakes made out of high-tech carbon-titanium material.
