Watch has Richard Hammond reviews the Pagani Huayra, the latest mighty creation of Horacio Pagani,
The Huayra concept was revealed in 2003, the year of the introduction of the Zonda S Roadster (yes, the latest of the last Zonda’s). These were prosperous times for the super cars manufactures. Their commitment have contributed to the rise of extraordinary cars like the Bugatti Veyron, Porsche Carrera GT, Ferrari Enzo, Mercedes McLaren SLR.
It is in this context that was born the latest Pagani (and Richard’s favourite). The Zonda having been a creation of the 90′s, it was time for a fresh start. The new Pagani is totally different in form, dimension, dynamics and technology, all this without losing the essence of what a Pagani should be: very extreme in every sense.
