Life with a hypercar can be more complicated than you’d expect. For one thing, you might have to include photo shoots in your weekly schedule. And shooting a Huayra next to a graffiti-decorated wall just won’t do. Oh no. The location has to be special.
You could, for instance, take your Pagani to the beach. You know, the kind of place that requires you to get out of the machine and test the terrain on foot and then use another car to drive over it.

However, even with all the preparation in the world, sometimes you might discover that getting back onto the road is not as easy as entering a beach. This is what recently happened to the Huayra owner in the video below, whose Pagani got stranded on the beach.

As we said, the hypercar was there for a photo shoot, so there’s no reason to talk about people who like to ruin their rides by driving them on the beach.

As you’ll be able to see in the footage, which comes from Instagram user yellowfly, people at the scene did try the classic plank rescue method, but with little success.

In the end, the Huayra was towed out of its misery by a Honda CR-V. Sure, this isn’t the most off-road-savvy machine around, but the Japanese crossover was good enough to complete the task.

In such situations, it’s always good to lower the tire pressure of the car that gets stuck, so that you maximise traction, but we don’t know if this trick was used.

The beach in question is the kind that uses gravel, not sand, so at least the Huayra isn’t flooded with tiny particles now. Various reports indicate the Italian machine hasn’t sustained any damage in the process, with the exception of a few underbody scratches.

And when we’re talking about a car that only comes in 100 examples, that’s one piece of reassuring info.
