Since first making its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, one year on, the first examples of the Pagani Huayra are ready to be delivered to customers around the world.
In the U.S. however, customers will have to wait a little longer as Pagani deal with local regulatory certification, although the company is confident that the vehicles will arrive at their shores in 2013.
To get enthusiasts excited about the arrival of the new supercar, Pagani has released a short documentary film highlighting the Huayra’s development and manufacturing process.
As Pagani explains, art and science, two disciplines that must walk together, hand in hand, have helped shape the design of the Huayra. This can be seen directly in the aerodynamic body, which has been designed to mimic the pattern of flowing wind. Even the car’s name is taken from the ancient name for a South American god of wind.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a single clutch seven-speed automated Xtrac gearbox, and when combined with a lithe 3,064-pound curb weight, the Huayra manages 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of over 235 mph.
The Huayra is the second supercar from Pagani and follows the Zonda. However, while the Zonda was naturally-aspirated, the Huayra features a pair of turbochargers to help deliver its 700 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque output.
