Horatio Pagani had a vision when he developed the Zonda, Pagani's first production car. His vision was to create a beautiful car that was also lightweight and functional. The Zonda was one of the lightest supercars in the world, and later variants employed a carbon-titanium blended weave for incredible strength that would provide rigidity for handling purposes but also safety in the event of a crash. The Zonda is an iconic car that solidified Pagani's place as a boutique supercar manufacturer. Now, it is time for the Huayra. Unlike most boutique manufacturers, Pagani insists on custom-making every part of Huayra, except the engine which is supplied by //AMG in the form of a 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces over 730 bhp and propels the Huayra from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds and to a top speed over 230 mph. The Huayra is a revelation that shows the capabilities of the Pagani brand to produce cars with a profound attention to detail. Every piece of aluminum in the Huayra is milled from a single piece of aluminum, which is a considerably more time-consuming and expensive process to the traditional application of casting or forging aluminum, but each milled aluminum piece exudes fine craftsmanship and quality. The Huayra was one of the first hypercars to employ the use of active aerodynamics through electronically controlled flaps that adjust based on speed and steering input to provide optimal grip and control around corners. The flaps retract and blend seamlessly with the organic design, and the door mirrors are reminiscent of "a beautiful woman's eye" according to Pagani. The Huayra, therefore, is not only a hypercar but also a work of art.
