Description: Seeing the magnificent hypercar up close, however, promised to take my love affair with the Huayra to new levels of lust. My first contact with Pagani was with PR man Luca Venturi, who invited me to t...

Leave it to the Chinese to have poor taste and no class. Poor ably going to some government officials daughter who saw it in a magazine.
Dylan Bruder Oct 22, 2012
Pink and green wow
Ryan Kent Oct 28, 2012
I like the green affects
Yasser Zahabi Oct 23, 2012
Well reading the previous page I though "green ??? WTF?? " seeing however , I must admit that looks sweet :)
Janak Solanki Oct 22, 2012
This car looks like its from another world.
Thibault Leroy Oct 22, 2012
No the green doesnt work on the huyra
Dylan Bruder Oct 22, 2012
The green is pretty sweet though
Christian Young Aug 23, 2013
This one isn't even green.
Ryan Kent Oct 28, 2012
Nice speakers Though
Ryan Kent Oct 28, 2012
The pink ruined it completely
Cameron Dean Oct 24, 2012
Look at the wing mirrors, Huarya for sure
Austin Bride Oct 24, 2012
Well this seems to be a huayra with normal doors because this is definitely no zonda
Yasser Zahabi Oct 23, 2012
Hahahah by this is vile :S
Bill Estep Jr Oct 23, 2012
Omg if I saw miss America drivin this car I would be like run jackpot
John Jenkins Oct 23, 2012
bet those speakers kick out some bass
Bobby Bob Oct 23, 2012
@Brayton. Much respect for taking fault and issuing an apology on the Internet...a rare thing indeed these days.
Brayton Wadella Oct 22, 2012
Ah touché. I apologize
Darian Vorlick Oct 22, 2012
The green exterior strangely worked but the pink killed it. Strange tidbit though: green cars on the covers of magazines tend to sell less than non-green cover cars.
Serge Pankratov Oct 22, 2012
Like the article said, this is one way to kill a supercar.. Or should i say torture ;-( my condolences to you Pagani
Morgan Marcella Oct 22, 2012
I wouldn't buy one even if I had the right amount of money.
Robert Boswell Oct 22, 2012
2 diff cars. Never mind my last comment...
Robert Boswell Oct 22, 2012
It says Huayra on the back of the car... Argument settled.
Ryan Kimball Oct 22, 2012
That looks like a modified zonda
Bobby Bob Oct 22, 2012
@Brayton...not to make you look like an ass...but Huayras have gullwing doors and no manuals..this has normal doors and a manual. I believe an apology to Marc is in fair due.
Brayton Wadella Oct 22, 2012
Marc, you're an idiot. It clearly says its a Huayra in the article.
Jared Oteri Oct 22, 2012
@ Noah it was a joke in the first place lol good one though
Bobby Bob Oct 22, 2012
Meh, I'd still buy it if I had the option. Donate a few grand to breast cancer research and tell all your friends it's pink in honour of breast cancer awareness.
Marc Whitford Oct 22, 2012
That's not a Huarya, normal Zonda
Maria Garcia Oct 22, 2012
I didn't know the Hyuara was available with a manual.
Stephen Ishard Oct 22, 2012
Not that I would want pink but if I paid a million I better get any color I want.
Noah Gavurin Oct 22, 2012
@jared, chill out, im pretty sure he meant that the carbon fiber just makes the pink look even more tacky
Jared Oteri Oct 22, 2012
Did I just read " terrible use of carbon fiber " I watched them hand land lay strips of it they don't know what a terrible use of carbon fiber is over there ,I'm sorry sir but rethink that option
Dennis Choong Oct 22, 2012
Woman owner? No other way to explain the pink
Ethan Amo Oct 22, 2012
I agree, love the transmission, completely hate the colour
David Munasinghe Oct 22, 2012
This what happens when you are a one generation away from plowing your own paddy field .Sad but true you can't buy taste or class with money.
Brian Johnston Oct 22, 2012
Eww that's bad. All it's missing is a hello kitty wheel cover.
Jason Brown Oct 22, 2012
Not sure what is worse, the pink or the terrible use of carbon.

Well what Ferrari are using isn't necessarily like a Prius. It's a KERS system. Don't know what that is, then look it up
Bobby Bob Oct 22, 2012
The paragraph should end with "',said the wise man."
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
Well that's the beauty there not even horrible on gas surprisingly compared to the competition
Taylor Garry Oct 22, 2012
Exactly. If you are buying a pagani, chances are you dont care about gas prices
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
See that's a man, not gonna sacrifice his cars performance for a little better mpg
Ryan Kent Oct 28, 2012
Looks like somthing from back to the future lol
Description: Instead of investing in alternative powertrain solutions, Pagani has focused on improving existing technologies. The result is that his 12-cylinder cars produce no more than 326g/km of CO2, compar...

Especially when you consider that most bugattis are rarely driven
Darian Vorlick Oct 22, 2012
His comment was that the sheer number of civics release more CO2 emissions than all the Veyrons (and probably all Bugattis) combined.
Das Stig Oct 22, 2012
that didn't make any sense at all. who cares how many civics there are.
Thibault Leroy Oct 22, 2012
There are only like 500 veyrons. Compare that to who knows how many civics
Chris Penza Oct 22, 2012
The bugatti is going to kill us all
Description: Hearing the engine purr while idling before quickly hitting 130 mph in third gear on the open road was a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience, but not one for the feint of heart. The opportunity to...

Don't like the bottom tht would scrap and scratch on a small little pot hole yet going 200 miles over a speed bump make it higher
Fidel John S. Francisco Oct 26, 2012
batman can used it in the next movie
Hemmo Karja Oct 23, 2012
Well guess twice if this is even allowed on public roads.. I would kill to get a zonda r
Bala Uncc Oct 23, 2012
Seriously how could one drive this without scratching the road ?
Jon Wheel Oct 23, 2012
Needs a carbon fiber tow hook
Darian Vorlick Oct 22, 2012
Think it needs a little more carbon fiber.
Trey Villarreal Oct 22, 2012
Headlights and windshield aren't carbon fiber. Unacceptable.
Janak Solanki Oct 22, 2012
Looks like alien
Das Stig Oct 22, 2012
I didn't realize that much of the front of the car was essentially a massive front splitter. that's really great engineering right there.
Jeff Hepler Oct 22, 2012
Damn that car is menacing. It looks ready to suck you up a spit you out of the back, then laugh at you.
Ethan Amo Oct 22, 2012
Damn, this is literally a low rider
Maaz Khan Oct 22, 2012
I would love to have this fancy snow remover Hahaha, jk! Not enough carbon fiber!!!!
Uche Ukaegbu Oct 22, 2012
Jason Brown Oct 22, 2012
Where is the carbon?
Description: [NB: Since Hank's visit to the factory, a British owner was sadly killed at the wheel of his Pagani Zonda, which he was reportedly driving without a seatbelt. The belted passenger, however, walke...

You meant "feeling" not "fealing" ;) But I know what you're saying.
Aaron Crisp Oct 22, 2012
Great article Hank! Thank you!
Zeus Mocha Oct 22, 2012
Nice write up and heading up there soon. Can't wait to see them here on US soil.
Jared Oteri Oct 22, 2012
I have done the tour of the pagani factory and saw that green huayra. I left feeling the exact same way. Impressed, wanting, and proud to know there is a human being with so much attention to detail as Horacio has. My hats off to that team
Serge Pankratov Oct 23, 2012
This is Italia.. Nobody needs to wear a seatbelts (with italian accent)
Grant Paquin Oct 22, 2012
I like how just because those kids are in an SUV they don't have to wear their seat belts :/.
Ryan Kimball Oct 22, 2012
Id be the guy in the dodge behind them
Bill Estep Jr Oct 23, 2012
Them side mirrors stick out pretty far
Jason Brown Oct 22, 2012
Redefining SIDE mirrors?
Alan Baars Oct 23, 2012
Maybe it's just me, but does the center console look shocked and surprised (big cartoon face)?
Herbert Beltran Oct 23, 2012
I believe those are sub ports for harnesses. A 5 point for exAmple
Kyle Kloewer Oct 23, 2012
Someone please tell me what the holes in the seats are for!
Joe Marasa Oct 23, 2012
The center dash where the tv is looks like they pulled it from the batman series in the 60s.
Kasey Cook Oct 22, 2012
I would guess were its sitting now is neutral. To the left and up reverse. Then forward and back for gear changes ( up for down shift and down for up shift )
Colby Church Oct 22, 2012
Beautiful interior, but I feel like something should be in the middle of the steering wheel, like an emblem or something.
Osman Azimy Oct 22, 2012
Park, reverse, drive I think
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
I would assume so, probally just park, reverse and drive
Nick Benz Oct 22, 2012
Is that a sequential shifter? There are only 3 slots!
Jacob Viiper McCord Oct 22, 2012
@Dustin my best guess is to move the seats around. Forward, backward, etc.
Dustin Byrd Oct 22, 2012
What are the "chrome studs" in the seats used for?
Redge Diakité Oct 22, 2012
@Brian No you're wrong man Horacio Pagani never inspires from another car manufacturer everything comes from his mind ;)
Taylor Garry Oct 22, 2012
Best interiors by far
Tara Landry Boudreaux Oct 22, 2012
These cars are expressiones of art in the automotive industry
Justin McLeod Oct 22, 2012
Love that gear shifter, reminds me of the spiker but a little less pronounced
Brian Johnston Oct 22, 2012
Bit of spyker influence.
Bill Estep Jr Oct 23, 2012
Dropped a nut damn lol jk
Janak Solanki Oct 22, 2012
Check out that diffuser
Jimmy Bartolotta Oct 22, 2012
You know how the saying goes "If you have to ask, you can't afford it."
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
Your first born child
Tyler Paul Oct 22, 2012
Those tires are massive, wonder how much they cost
Bill Estep Jr Oct 23, 2012
Look at that detail in the carbon fiber that is the coolest
Trey Villarreal Oct 22, 2012
If this is what it means to not cut corners, then every other production car in existence is cutting corners.
Garrett Keller Oct 22, 2012
The heart of a dragon
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
Wounder if pagani will stay with there proven power plant or ditch amg in favor of an in house built engine
William Downs Oct 22, 2012
I'd say no corners cut more then over the top.
Trey Villarreal Oct 22, 2012
Everything about this vehicle is over-the-top (in a good way)
Andrew Hubbard Oct 22, 2012
Toyota truck in the back :P
Michael Beach Oct 22, 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed this article. Thanks carbuzz! If you send me to Lamborghini HQ ill write a good article on my experience!
