Like the circuit-only versions of the Zonda, the particular Huayra R packs the naturally-aspirated V12. Rather than make use of one borrowed from Mercedes-AMG , though, Pagani’s new multi-million Euro track toy posseses an engine “designed from the floor up” by none other than HWA AG. The German firm was behind the famous Mercedes CLK GTR, and much more recently had a hand in building another N/A V12 supercar – the Apollo IE.
While we’ll have to wait around a little longer before we all hear the Huayra L driven in anger, we are able to have an early preview out of this bench-testing footage. And nice lord, does it sound great.
The engine clothes out either at 9000rpm or 9200rpm (Pagani offers quoted both of these figures : we’ve contacted them meant for clarification), screaming through Inconel exhaust manifolds with equal-length tubes creating that traditional Pagani noise.
The six. 0-litre unit is remarkably light at 198kg and may go for about 6000 kilometers between services. It types a stressed member of the particular chassis and drives the trunk wheels via a six-speed continuous gearbox.
Unfortunately for us normal folks, the carbon fibre bundle all of this is wrapped within costs €2. 6 mil. Plus taxes.
