Default Pagani Huayra: First real Huayra photo

Quote:
Some of you may have seen the magazine scan over at Teamspeed earlier today showing the new Pagani Huayra. Many who have seen the scan have wondered if it is real. It is. As you can see from the photo above.

We’ve had the photo for a while, but didn’t want to run it and break a confidence. But now the Huayra has already been revealed it makes sense to publish the actual photo we were sent. And we do tend to agree with the concensus after the Teamspeed photo ran this morning – the Huayra seems a bit of a let-down.

Where the Zonda was original – even if it was almost a caricature of a supercar – the Huayra is almost generic. There’s a whiff of the Mercedes Gullwing about the doors; a dose of earlier Lamborghini in the nose and a hefty smattering of Ferrari 458 at the back (yes, we have more photos but can’t publish them – yet).

Maybe the Huayra will grow on us. Maybe it looks better in the flesh (no, we haven’t seen the actual car). But when you consider the underwhelming design of the Huayra and the problems we know Pagani are having with both the Huayra shakedown and its production, things aren’t looking brilliant for Pagani

Looks like one of those bad Chinese copies of a Zonda.

I will wait for final production looks.

Default Pagani Huayra revealed

Quote:
This is the Pagani Huayra, the Italian firm’s one million euro hypercar replacement for the Zonda. Known in development as the C9, the Huayra – a ‘god of wind’ and pronounced ‘Wirer’ with a heavy Spanish accent – has taken Pagani seven years to develop and, according to company boss Horacio Pagani, offers a different flavour of supercar to the Zonda.

Continuing Pagani’s alliance with Mercedes’ AMG department, the Huayra is powered by a bi-turbo 6.0-litre V12. Pagani will sell two versions of the Huayra: the standard engine with 700bhp and 664lb ft, and a Sport version with 730bhp and 811lb ft. While the block is shared with Mercedes’ own SL65 Black Series, Pagani commissioned AMG to reduce turbo lag and improve the throttle progression, resulting in new heads, pistons, manifolds and turbos.

See Autocar's exclusive pics of the new Pagani Huayra
Currently Pagani is being quite coy about the Huayra’s performance, but is claiming to have seen 230mph, and Zero to 62mph in 3.3sec in testing. Helping to manage the inevitable slip is a three-stage Bosch traction control system.

The Huayra uses a mandatory seven-speed paddle-shift gearbox, built for Pagani by UK race specialist XTRAC. To reduce the length of the drivetrain the gearbox is mounted transversely behind the engine.
Kerbweight has been kept to 1350kg (dry), despite the fact the Huayra is larger than the Zonda and carries more safety equipment. Which along with the forced induction ensures the Huayra is homologated for the US - the first time a Pagani has done so.

Another first are the enormous gullwing doors, like the rest of the body constructed from carbonfibre. While the tub is carbon-titanium, the titanium allowing the material to flex just slightly in the event of an impact rather than shattering, but without compromising the strength.
Pagani claim the overall body is designed to act like an aircraft wing, changing its shape to manage the airflow over it to best effect. It does so, using four moveable aerodynamic flaps, one at each corner of the car. Each independently and automatically operated. These not only tailor downforce as required for acceleration and braking but also work across the car to add grip during cornering.

Read more on the Huayra's development
In addition, the front ride height is adjustable, not only for garage/ramp access at low speeds but also to actively manage the airflow under the car at speed. And under hard braking the ride height (controlled by the dampers) increases to negate dive.

The interior is instantly recognisable as a Pagani, but has designed to be more comfortable and useable on longer journeys, with more cabin space plus a touch screen sat-nav and Bluetooth.

The Huayra also marks a step-change for Pagani. If it can find enough suitably wealthy customers the Huayra will double annual production and take Pagani into the US and Chinese markets. To facilitate that growth Pagani plans to start construction of a new, larger factory during 2011.

While it certainly looks better than the first leaked photo made it out to be, I'm still not a fan. But then again I was never really a fan of the Zondas looks ether.

The interior looks like they stole Spyker's design team (not a bad thing).

While there are tons of design cues that could be directed back to other manufacturers cars the Pagani will always stand out on its own. They are not the most beautiful cars but I think they are gorgeous and the craftsmanship is top tier. Think there will be something about it in the next EVO so waiting patiently for that issue.

Design-wise, what a huuuuuge step back from the Zonda. To me this is really butt ugly. The wheelbase seems way too long for a super car, which gives the car the awkwardness of a stretched limo. The front is horrible too.

And before anyone says they are all form following the function, I think at the price these things will go for, you have every reason to expect it to look amazing. Like the Zonda.

The craftsmanship and build quality is amazing...

but the aesthetics continue to be perplexing. It somehow doesn't sit well when viewed as a whole from the outside.

But the details are fascinating, from the flaps (I want to call them canards and elevators... they look like aircraft control surfaces), to the heat-sync plates on the engine. I also like the doors, in that they reach all the way to the wheel liner on the front, and have a transparent panel overhead.

But somehow the Ciento Once concept from GWA, even as just a digital rendering, is a more interesting look, as a throwback to the MB in-house C111 concept cars of ~1968-72.


Somewhere between the two would be a mid-engined MB gull wing ideal.

The picture of the R you posted only looks different because of the perspective of the photo. If you look at the photo I posted it has a better angle to show the shape of the car. The Zonda and the Huayra both are very similar in over all shape. The Huayra is more rounded and flowing like most current supercars. The Zonda was brought to market in 1999 (so had been in design for a good few years prior if not longer) and its shape has a more angular appearance to reflect that. But the overall shape still screams Pagani.

The only thing I don't particularly like on the new car is the mirrors, they seem out of place with the rest of the car.

"The Huayra packs a Mercedes-Benz AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 punch pushing out over 700 horses and just around 740 pound-feet of torque. It is said to be capable of speeds of around 230 MPH!"

My first instinct was to really hate on this design - but after looking at it for a while I think my only problem with it is the beige-ness. I can't stand the exterior or interior colors at all - obviously they will produce different color options of this car, just a matter of paying for it.

I'm waiting for the black w/ yellow accents version
