Pagani Huayra Pachetto Tempesta Prototype Has 250,000 Miles, Have a Short Drive

Since Pagani is a small company, zooming in on what happens to its development cars can deliver delicious results and we're here to see how the Huayra Pacheto Tempesta prototype is doing.

Before we move on to the details of this particular example, which friends call PT1 (Prototype 1), allow us to remind you the origins of the Pachetto Tempesta (this can be translated into velocity package).

At this year's Geneva Motor Show, Pagani introduced the $2.5 million Huayra BC, but as it happens with such elite automakers, the company didn't want to make the 100 customers who had acquired "standard" Huayras feel left behind. This is where the Tempesta story steps in, as we're dealing with a kit that can be retrofitted to the Huayra coupe.

However, when an upgrade like this ends up costing $160,000 (make that €160,000 plus VAT, if you happen to be reading this from the Old Continent perspective), you'll want to pay special attention to the package.

While the details of the update, which ups the ante on all fronts, are mentioned in the piece of footage below, we want to return to the PT1 Huayra Pachetto Tempesta - the prototype now has over 250,000 miles (400,000 km) on it, which makes it a veteran.

Nevertheless, don't imagine the machine is in any other condition than an ideal one. The piece of footage below, which comes from TheSUPERCARDRIVER, takes us to the Pagani UK factory, allowing us to get a detailed view of the PT1.

In fact, the clip also includes driving footage, with the focus being placed on the way the new titanium exhaust changes the voice of the AMG-sourced twin-turbo V12 in the middle of the car.

P.S.: Since we mentioned the aural part of the experience, the video shows that even Pagani employees miss the soundtrack of the Zonda.
