So you want a Pagani?


Have you got USD 3.6 million spare and put your name down already? If no on either account, Pagani isn’t waiting for you.

According to Horacio Pagani, founder of the Italian supercar company, the new Huayra Roadster pronounced Way-rah, and named after the God of wind (but calling it F*rt would have been non-acceptable), it looks as glamorous and exotic as its USD 3.6 million price suggests it should be.

Just 100 examples of the Huayra Roadster will be built, and the company says all have already been sold – despite it costing more than twice as much as the Huayra coupe.

The engine is a twin-turbo, 6-liter, V12 developing 754 bhp and drives the rear wheels via a seven-speed sequential manual gearbox. The company is still to release performance figures for its new model, but expect it to accelerate from 0-100 in a shade over 3 seconds and boast a top speed of around the low side of 400 km/h.

Pagani says the purchaser gets two roof styles. The first is a carbon top with a central glass section, which is removable but can’t be stored in the car. Once this is left at home, the Pagani Huayra features a fabric cover with a carbon frame that is stored on-board. Pagani says this is a temporary feature that can be used when the weather suddenly turns. As if you’ll see any Paganis on the road in the wet season.

But 3.6 million? No car is worth that.
