The Pagani Huayra replaces the Zonda and is a typically dramatically styled mid-engined V12 supercar. It’s an impeccably engineered rival to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Lamborghini Aventador, yet hails from a much smaller, boutique specialist on the other side of town.

60sec road test
To behold the Huayra is to witness a major statement in the supercar world. It’s styled so outlandishly that it leaves even Veyrons and Aventadors appearing ever so slightly ordinary, and there’s an otherworldly theatre to lifting that gullwing door and slipping down into an entirely bespoke cabin of exquisitely finished carbon, hunks of aluminium and plump leather, before reaching far above your head and pulling the leather strap down hard, slamming the door shut. Turn the key and squish the accelerator into the floor and the Huayra positively smacks you round the head with its performance, a mafioso induction to a new, more brutal way of doing this supercar thing. It’s raw, it’s mentally fast and it handles like a supercar should. Drama lies at the heart of the Huayra experience, as you’ll see in our full review listed below. Hold on tight!
