Strongly inspired by the timeless appeal of the Le Mans and Sports-Prototype cars of the ’60s and ’70s, the Huayra R is an extreme, untamed car that bows to no rules except for safety.
Strongly inspired by the timeless appeal of the Le Mans and Sports-Prototype cars of the ’60s and ’70s, the Huayra R is an extreme, untamed car that bows to no rules except for safety. Designed with the sole desire to offer uncompromising performance, with a newly developed Pagani V12-R 6-liter naturally aspirated racing engine, and capable of generating 1000 kg of downforce at 320 km/h without considering active aerodynamics, the ultimate track-focused Pagani Hypercar combines the highest level of automotive engineering and aerodynamic know-how with great aesthetic sensitivity in a design exercise that represents the full expression of Pagani Automobili’s technological development.
In 2008 we were working on the Huayra, a very challenging and demanding project from an engineering and stylistic standpoint. After many years, I felt an overwhelming desire for freedom and that’s how the Zonda R came about, a track car free from constraints and regulations. Beautiful, high-performing and safe. Just like the Zonda R, the Huayra R is the freest, most extreme and performance-oriented Pagani car of all time.
