The 2011 Pagani Huayra appears as an inspired eternity element air, delicate, ethereal, elegant, muscular and capable of eroding the most resistant materials. With a style perfected over five years in order to provide each line a clear beginning and an equally clear view, the Huayra combines past, present and future in the timeless art automotive interpretation. Carbon-titanium was used to build the all-new monocoque central Huayra with gull-wing doors that include a good portion of the roof, thus achieving the highest levels of rigidity combined with maximum lightness. The vehicle's weight is 1350 kg, due to a constant quest for weight reduction. The heart of Huayra was provided by Mercedes-AMG with technical applications and the strictest quality aspects met by the 12-cylinder biturbo engine, unleashing a power over 700 hp and a torque of over 1000 Nm. A direct application of technologies racing on a high-performance road car is represented by the titanium exhaust system engineered by MHG-Fahrzeugtechnik. The pressure was reduced by the hydroformed junctions, thus ensuring a free flow of exhaust gases. A seven-speed sequential gearbox cross and a dual-disc clutch transfer power and enormous torque to the wheels and the entire transmission weighs 96 kg. Pirelli engineers developed the tires, following the famous slogan, according to which "power is nothing without control".
The Huayra is like a man machine as the driver finds all the primary functions on the steering wheel, while tha paddles are mounted directly on the steering gear, a fact which enables drivers to change without taking their hands off the steering wheel.
In terms of safety and environment, the car thoroughly respects the standards of Europe and the United States and several ars were used to validate tests.
