Horacio describes his latest creation as something that sets new standards in terms of custom build. For the very first example of a custom made Huayra, I believe that Pagani has made a damn fine job. Think of it as a suit that’s been tailored specifically for its wearer. The blue-tinted carbon fiber body shell is fine and all, as are the clear coat carbon fiber aerodynamic bits and bobs, but the magic of this Huayra lies within the fine details. And the roof scoop. And rear wing.
Pardon me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the first time Pagani bestowed a roof scoop upon the Huayra. Furthermore, the split rear wing is a nod to the Zonda C12 S. The front lip also appears to have been inspired by that of the Pacheto Tempesta retrofit track package. All said, the exterior makeover is a ten out of ten.
But then again, beauty isn't about having a pretty face. The Huayra Pearl also benefits from an improved chassis, something that translates into a better driving experience. The interior is a work of art on its own, especially if you take your time analyzing every little handmade detail. Forgive my James May-esque opinion, but even the seat stitching looks as if Michelangelo’s Angel statue had sewn it.
Pricing hasn’t been disclosed, but bear in mind that it took Pagani a year to finish the development and construction of the Huayra Pearl. More to the point, it shouldn’t be surprising if Refined Marques paid more money on the Huayra Pearl than the $2.55 million Pagani asks for a Huayra BC.
