Pagani Huayra 2012 - The Carbon Fiber Blitzkrieg!

From The Top!

It's fast! It's sleek! It's light-weight! It's Italian!

It's gorgeous, with sexy curves, and clever design. It's low swung, but clings to the road like a tiger to its prey!

It's the Pagani Huayra (pronounced why-rah), a carbon fiber luxury sports car with a twin turbocharged V12 engine! Enough or you want more?

Disarming Side Profile

The Pagani Huarya, a mid-sized racer, is manufactured by the Italian car maker, Pagani, and precedes the Pagani Zonda. Costing approx. $1,150,000, the car will be road worthy in 2013. Named Huarya after the Incan God of the Winds, "Huayra-tata," This unique luxury sedan has an external carbon fiber coating, instead of the regular paint job. Carbon is also used for several interior elements like the dashboard and adds accents to the plush leather seating too. Perhaps, making an attempt to justify the car's huge price tag.

No sports car is worthy unless it has a great engine. The Pagani Huayra Carbon Edition is no different. As mentioned, the V12, twin turbo engine churns out a staggering 700 HP & 738 lb-ft of torque, allowing the car to dash to 100kmph in as little as 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 270kmph. Interestingly, the Huarya has the same engine that powers the Merc AMG roadsters. And yes, the Italians outsource the engine from the Germans.

Despite being a modern Beemer, the Pagani Huayra doesn't have a dual-clutch gearbox. It uses a 7-speed sequential gearbox and has a dual-disc clutch, so as to be light and faster. Therefore, the complete weight of this Italian car's transmission is a mere 96 kg!!

Using dry slump method of lubrication, the car always gets uniform oil flow even when subjected to high speeds, thus ensuring effective engine operation and lower center of gravity, while improving overall handling of the car. The fuel tank is placed just behind the driver and is made of ballistic material.

The Huarya employs active aerodynamics and can comfortably change the height of its front  from the ground level with the help of the four-independently operating flaps placed, two each, at the front and rear of it.

With several unique features and innovative technology uses, the Pagani Huarya is definitely a different sort of luxury sports car. One that promises, good looks as well as thrills and unending adventure. A word of caution: it's definitely not for the faint hearted!!
