Pagani Huayra Gets Virtual Refresh, Looks Ready for Another Decade of Wonders

An equally outrageous yet stunningly glamorous successor to Pagani’s Zonda, its Huayra supercar appeared a little over a decade ago as a 2012 model year. Now, it’s time for a digital, unofficial refresh.

Created as the mid-engine AMG-powered supercar follow-up to Pagani’s eerie Zonda, the Italian automaker’s Huayra became one of the most coveted hypercars of 2012. It has been a long time since then. And the original Huayra has even ceased production quite early since it was limited to exactly 100 units via a deal with its Mercedes-AMG engine partner.

So, how come Pagani still manufactures Huayras to this very day, one might ask. Well, aside from a huge assortment of special editions to allow it to break the rules, the Italians also bent the limits in a much simpler way. Every time there was a new variant, it received a slightly different name (Roadster, BC, Imola, Tricolore, R), and also a new manufacturing quota.

Keeping with this line of thought, we reckon that Siim Parn – the Estonia-based virtual artist better known as spdesignsest on social media – should consider a moniker for his refreshed Huayra. Sure, unofficial digital creations are not exactly a top priority for OEMs, no matter how large or small they are.

But if our own two cents are permitted, we feel this virtual project has its merits. For starters, it gives the decade-old Huayra a new lease of life for a potential (yet unlikely) second decade of wonders. Just like a traditional refresh, this conceptual design does not stray too much from the source material. Instead, there is an updated front fascia, with the biggest revisions at the headlights level, as well as an upgraded rear end.

The latter seems to have taken cues from the latest Huayra R depiction, albeit it also “slows” things down a little bit for a less racing-focused presentation. Overall, not a bad effort, though we should all reserve final judgment for when the artist also provides us with a lateral point of view.
