It’s been over of 15 years since the universally coveted Pagani Zonda graced our international motor shows and desktop screensavers alike – so it is with great anticipation we introduce to you the newest stalwart to emerge out of Pagani HQ, the Pagani Huayra BC.
With a name deriving from the Quechua people of South America’s ‘Wind God’, the aerodynamic components of the Huayra BC are nothing short of stunning. From minor details such as the teardrop side mirrors, right through to beefed up rear diffuser and spoiler to match, the vehicle honestly wouldn’t look out of place with a NASA badge on the front of it.
While the raw and rugged aesthetics you can marvel at for yourself, let me run through just a FEW of the features you will find hidden under all that carbon fibre. First and foremost, the engine masterfully crafted by the ever reliable Mercedes-AMG is a whopping 6000cc (5980 to be precise…) bi-turbo V12, churning out a scarcely believable 798 horse power. Couple that with a paltry 1200kg frame and well… 3 seconds to 100km/h is a conservative estimate…
And before you start taking off into the heavens above, the ceramic Brembo brakes will have you secured safely before the traffic lights quicker than Mach 10 itself. All in all, this is an outrageous example of Italian flair and design, meeting German efficiency and know how – Monica Bellucci meets Karl Benz, if you will. Something special indeed, and even if you can afford the cool $2.8mil there will be just the 20 models of the Pagani Huayra BC being produced – bummer.
