As far as Americans are concerned, Pagani cars drive around in a magical land where they avoid unicorns. But this machine of myth might finally be coming Stateside. The latest creation from the company is the Huayra, a 700-hp, 230-mph supercar costing around $1.2 million. Around four or five will be available in 2012, because of the factory’s low capacity. Expansion plans could push this number up to between 10 to 15 cars a year, so promised the company’s Managing Director Francesco Zappacosta (and please don’t shorten his name to Frank Zappa). The mainly carbon-fiber Huayra has a twin-turbo, 6.0-liter AMG V12 that makes 738 lb-ft of torque. The sobriquet comes from a native South American term for the wind god: Aymara Huayra Tata. There’s one other usable car name right there. And we don’t mean Tata.
Does it drive as good as it looks? Yes it does! #superstreet #drivingisbelieving #bmwi8 #azusacanyon
