2013 Pagani Huayra: supercar conceptBy
The Huayra features a 6.0 V12 Mercedes-AMG engine, with 700 hp and 1,00 Nm, which takes it to a top speed of more than 370 km/h. The layout features a forward-positioned cabin and an elongated rear end, which visually enhances the idea of movement. Named after “Aymara Huayra Tata”, God of the Wind, the Pagani Huayra was designed over the course of 5 years.

The Huayra adots the concept of a wing, whose properties can be modified by varying the front ride height, which can be adjusted dynamically, and by adjusting the 4 control flaps on each of the four corners of the car.

The behavior of the flaps is managed by a dedicated control unit that is fed information from the ABS and ECU, which pass information about the car’s speed, yaw rate, lateral acceleration, steering angle and throttle position.
Among the many technical highlights are the drysump lubrication, a two stage fuel supply system, a oil/water heat exchanger reduces warm-up times, a titanium exhaust system with hydroformed junctions. The new central monocoque on the Huayra is an entirely new design made from carbontitanium. The unit is coupled with a rear-positioned XTrac transverse sequential seven speed gearbox with a dual plate clutch – the dual clutch system was not selected to further reduce the weight. The total weight of the Huayra is just 1,350 kg. Prices are estimated to be higher than 1 million Euros.
