Powered by a Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 twin-turbo engine that produces 730bhp, the Pagani Huayra features a new central monocoque chassis, an entirely new design made from carbontitanium. Unfortunately, it’ll set you back a cool $1.1-million. Continue reading for a video, more pictures, and additional information.
The suspension is pure race car stuff: double wishbones milled from billets of a copper-rich aluminum alloy called Avional, with pushrod-actuated Ohlins shocks. The carbon bodywork was styled by Pagani himself, and features active aerodynamics — flaps at each corner of the car that can move independently and alter downforce according to inputs from sensors that measure speed, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, roll, and steering angle. The suspension will also automatically lower the nose to increase the car’s angle of attack and increase downforce at speed.
