..the Pagani Huayra..once again..nothing but positive adjectives come to mind looking at this vehicle..pics, specs, and commentary below courtesy of MotorTrend.
The Pagani Zonda made its debut at the 1999 Geneva show, and impressed with its performance, quality, and surprisingly well-sorted chassis and powertrain. The Pagani Huayra — it’s pronounced “h-wire-a” — is the long-awaited successor to the Zonda. And the good news is, despite a last-minute hitch over two-stage airbags, this 230-mph road rocket will be sold in the U.S. The first cars — Pagani took 12 orders for the $1.2-million (base price) Huayra over the Pebble Beach weekend — are scheduled to arrive in 2013.
