Leading Italian automaker Pagani is back on the radar with a fitting nod to Huayra’s mid-range engine supercar. He was first introduced in 2012 as a fan of Zonda, which is successful and successful in Pagani, and the Huayra R is unlike any previous Huayra.
“Creativity is the result of curiosity and the question of something that does not exist,” said Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili SPA “From this desire for freedom, and the knowledge of the Zonda R and cars of the past an idea of the Huayra R, as a breath of fresh air. ”
For starters, Huayra R has a completely new 6.0-liter V12 engine Developed and engineered for Huayra R by a Mercedes-AMG HWA collaborator, the new V12 is a screen. Pumping out 838 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of casque with a strong 9000 rpm red line, Pagani’s V12 R engine weighs only 436 pounds (198 kg) and needs servicing every 6,200 miles (10,000 km), impressive for such a large power machine.
“The new engine must incorporate the charm, romance, sound and simplicity of the 1980s F1 engines while incorporating the modern technology available today,” said Pagani.
Not only does it have a new engine, but the Huayra R has a new six-speed series gearbox to deliver the biggest thrills with every gear change. Pagani claims 95 percent breaking efficiency by using a three-saturated metal disc racing trim, promising more precise movements while minimizing shift times. The path of unused gasses leads to a modern Inconel protection system with a ceramic coating, which we think feels awkward in this arrangement.
The Pagani Huayra R has the same carbon-titanium monocoque frame as the Huayra Roadster BC. The new engine and transmission are mounted directly to the frame to improve chassis rigidity, translating to tougher handling and better flexibility. There are also 19-inch wheels with GT3 racing-inspired Pirelli rod tires, available in two rubber combinations: Medium or wet.
Meanwhile, the anchors are carbon-ceramic rotors with Brembo discs measuring 16.1-inches in front and 15.4-inches behind. Speaking of the rear, the Huayra R has a large rear spoiler and a pair of removable flaps to change the downforce as you drive. According to Pagani, Huayra R produces 2205 pounds of downforce at 199 mph.
Pagani makes only 30 examples of Huayra R with base prices starting at $ 3.1-million each. If you haven’t figured it out by now, the Huayra R isn’t legal on the road, so it’s a rather unusual toy track. But for the man or woman who has it all, a hypercar collection is not complete without Pagani Huayra R.
