A league of its own
BY ANAAM IKRAM
A true image of craftsmanship, the Pagani Huayra symbolises a new generation of motor vehicles. With an already strong presence of ‘super cars’ such as McLaren, Bugatti and Koenigsegg Agera, the Pagani Huayra sets itself apart as a ‘hypercar’. With its avant-garde aesthetic and cutting-edge technology, Pagani Huayra is by far one of the more superior cars in the industry today. A special edition car was unveiled in Bahrain on 18 April 2015 at the Four Seasons Bahrain Bay, putting on full display the magnificence it has to offer.
Having made an appearance in the fourth instalment of the Transformers movie franchise, the hypercar was conceived as a successor to Zonda S Roadster, which was introduced in 2003. Pagani Huayra has been inspired by the teachings of Leonardo Da Vinci about art and science working together in harmony. The defining concept of this powerful machine is the element of air and has therefore been aptly named after Wayra Tata, which means “God of the winds” in Quechua.
The 20-car limited edition was created for Pagani fans worldwide and has been labelled as a “gift” by owner Horacio Pagani, available exclusively for existing customers. Having being tested by experts and car enthusiasts alike, the new model has garnered fans speedily, much like its predecessors.
The expertise displayed through the cars earned Pagani the “Hypercar of the Year” in 2012 by Top Gear Magazine. Unveiling the new car between now and the 2016 Geneva Motor show, the dynamic automobile is already creating buzz. The vehicle is nothing short of impressive. Being comprised of 4000 parts, which have been put together with creativity, a great deal of patience and, passion, has resulted in a stellar product. Boasting a specially made Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 twin-Turbo engine that produces 730cv (horsepower) the car is unmatched in speed going from 0-62m/ph in 3 seconds. The transverse sequential seven-spread gearbox – AMT robotyzed system with driving programs within a carbon-titanium monocoque body, is held together by titanium bolts and nuts. The Pagani Huayra is a powerful car by every definition of the word.
For car enthusiasts worldwide, the launch of the new Huayra Pagani represents a new age of hypercars in the automotive industry with its unmatched speed and technological advances. Consistently delivering more than its fans’ expectations, it is no surprise the luxury automobile company is growing at an accelerated speed.
