This Is a Pagani Huayra Sea Bathing, Fortunately Just a Scale Model

Supercars are a bit like cats when it comes to bathing in the sea. With a few exceptions of the feline world, these creatures and salty water can never mix. Even a few small splashes can make them run away in disgust. The Pagani Huayra recently received such a treatment, but, fortunately this is just a scale model.
The pictures were taken by a collector who relied on nature to pull a rather nice diorama-like frame. The Huyra, an 1:18 scale model coming from AutoArt, is just sitting there with its butterfly doors fully open, as if it’s waiting for its brothers to arrive. What brothers? We’re happy to remind you of them.

As Pagani’s chief test driver Davide Testi recently revealed, the Italian automaker is preparing an even hotter version of the Huayra. This should wear the Nurburgring moniker and our spy photographers recently encountered its prototype testing in Germany.

The Huayra Nurburgring wasn’t just spending time on some random German Autobahn. Instead, it was spotted in the proximity of AMG’s Affalterbach headquarters, with the engineers working to sharpen up the twin-turbo V12 at the center of the car.

In its current form, the 5,980 cc unit delivers 700 hp and 737.5 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. Of course, there are many questions to be asked here, such as how much extra torque could the current X-Trac seven-speed sequential transmission take.

Until the answers arrive, you can keep yourself busy by thinking of this as some sort of pure, naturally-aspirated Pagani response to the hybrid hypercar trio coming from Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren.

As for the other Huayra model, this is the Roadster. The open-air incarnation of the Huyra was supposed to land this year, but it’s been pushed back and thus we may have to wait until 2017 to see it. More time for that piggy bank to grow fatter.
