It’s obvious that the new beast has softer styling and isn’t as aggressive as the Zonda, but the two models still have a lot in common and share a similar silhouette. The newcomer even gets a pair of SLS-like gullwing doors, which introduce the driver to a bespoke interior.
The supercar is built around an new carbon-titanium monocoque frame, while the body parts are constructed from carbon-fiber. Lightweight materials are also used throughout the car, so the Huayra tips the scales at 1,350 kg (2,976 pounds).
But we’ve teased you enough already. You want to know what powers the Huayra, don’t you? Behind the passenger compartment Pagani engineers have squeezed a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, specially built for Pagani by Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance division. The V12 pumps out over 700 horsepower and over 1000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. All that power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
