I'm sure the aventador bits all the other cars they had test until now. Lets see what happens with the f150
Demetrio Bilbatua Feb 17, 2013
Top gear is not a reliable source, it is just a tv show, the tests they do are not performed in the right way in order to trust them. It's all about money money

Did anyone notice how the windscreen wiper was totally in Hammond's way when he was driving? It was really in the field of vision. But then they did some external shots with a different setup and they'd moved the wiper to the right hand side?

Just because I spend 10 minutes a day on Carbuzz doesn't mean I don't have a life...
Jack Howard Jan 30, 2013
Good job, you proved my point. I said last week you didn't like them and then you decided to tell me the same damn thing.
Rogerio Alonso Jan 29, 2013
Wonderfull .
Jack Howard Jan 29, 2013
I like how just last week Jack was saying KERS and electric stuff was stupid
Richard Nichols Jan 29, 2013
How fast can you make a street car? I wouldn't bet against one of the big three new hypercars to do a sub 1:12:00 lap around there. With the pedigree that they all have anyone of those could be more than capable.
Paul Dickey Jan 29, 2013
With you on that Tyson.
Tyson Broadbent Jan 28, 2013
Thank God for streetfire
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
Agree with Tyler and William! The top gear track in my mind is the best way to compare lap times between production cars!
William Downs Jan 28, 2013
Not to mention that its also been the most controlled lap time testing, lap times are always set by the same driver so there completely fair, top gear shoukdnt be your got to source for your auto info, but that doesn't mean everything they do is irrevelent
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
@Cian. How is that sad? The Top Gear test track is one of the few tracks in the world that nearly every production perfromance car in the world has gone around
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
@Cian What is sad about it?
Lou Guerrero Jan 28, 2013

Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
Anybody know where I can find the episode? I tried recording it but for some reason it didn't work
Dennis Choong Jan 28, 2013
The Huayra was squirming under heavy braking at Dunsfold but put its power down well on exits
Cian Mac Gearailt Jan 28, 2013
The sad day has come when a lap record on the TG track has hit the headlines in the car news.
Daniel Anglevik Jan 28, 2013
I would love to see Lamborghini Sesto Elemento on the TopGear track..
Oscar Galvan Jan 28, 2013
F yea!
Chase Fecko Jan 28, 2013
For 1.2 million it better be good.
Jommel Marcella Jan 28, 2013
Nice one Pagani.
Redge Diakité Jan 28, 2013
Well what CAN we say? Pagani did his job like always, perfect handling braking and acceleration ;)
Angelo Baclay Jan 28, 2013
Video or gtfo
Drew Humphrey Jan 28, 2013
@ryan it premiered on BBC in the UK before BBC America
Ryan Luellen Jan 28, 2013
Wait I thought it premiered the fourth of February?!?
David Gray Jan 28, 2013
Lol the surprise was kinda given away in the headline CarBuzz.......
omarSV Jan 28, 2013
@*tyler
omarSV Jan 28, 2013
@well Pagani were developing the car for the last 7yrs that the Zonda was in production, thats a very long time (looks like all that hard work paid off!). The lap looked incredible, Ive never seen such a planted lap by a rwd supercar before. Braking was incredible too, it looked faster than anything road legal round that track. Well done Pagani!
Tyler Tarbox Jan 28, 2013
Wow that is impressive. Would have expected top 5 but not 1st
Dylan Bruder Jan 28, 2013
Yeah I was wanting to see this oh well only one part ruined
Omar Hash Jan 29, 2013
This car is PERFECTLY PERFECT & BEAUTIFUL through and through. STFU!
Reva Barris Jan 29, 2013
I hate this car, although I like the adjustable spoilers that help you steer, I've been dreaming about cars having those for years
Serge Pankratov Jan 29, 2013
Yes i agree! Its an amazing car. Period.
Greg Lewis Jan 29, 2013
Can we agree this is just a beautiful car?
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
0-60 times are overrated! It has nothing to do with how a car overall performs or the most important thing, driving feel! The Pagani is both a great performance car as prover by the lap time, but from the review, an amazing feeling car too!
Mario Callirgos Jan 28, 2013
Apparently Jack is still comparing AWD cars to RWD cars. Not very smart...
Pablo Herasme Jan 28, 2013
Jack apparently does not know his physics
Aaron Crisp Jan 28, 2013
@Jack It just broke the Top Gear track record!!! That's not proof enough? Going by your logic of fastest 0-60 MPH the GTR is the worlds best car, but since Japanese cars are apparently the worst it's not. Your logic is silly. Going in circles.
Jacob Burford Jan 28, 2013
Looks beautiful, and Richard gave it a great review! Really enjoyed it!
Janak Solanki Jan 28, 2013
Could also be the gear ratios.
William Downs Jan 28, 2013
Jack when will u understand that 0-60 isn't the be all end all of performance
Dennis Choong Jan 28, 2013
The only thing I don't like is the front facia... the rest of the car is exquisite
Scott Kennedy Jan 28, 2013
Unlike some people, this is probably my favorite car. It's like a sculpture... That goes 235 mph!
Oren Blumenstein Jan 28, 2013
not a fan of any of these just my taste, i'm not dissing anythkng
Derrick McCarthy Jan 28, 2013
This makes me drool.
Bruno Nanber Uan Jan 28, 2013
Look at those rims!!!
Neil Puri Jan 28, 2013
It takes five days just to make one rim for the this car..
Carlos Eduardo Gaviria Jan 28, 2013
They do mention in top gear that it has a better power to weight ratio than the Veyron. So it's not only about having a million horse powers. Lightweight is the second part to the equation
Pablo Herasme Jan 28, 2013
This car looks racey, but I like its uniqueness
Oscar Galvan Jan 28, 2013
Im with Lou here
Elias Harb Jan 28, 2013
A pagani is an experience... At first u dont get what the car is all about but once u watch some of the videos and see how passionately its made it will definitely grow on you!
Lou Guerrero Jan 28, 2013
Honestly if I were sitting in this nothing else would matter. No Ferrari or 918 would even cross my mind. I get it, Pagani
Ben Norton Jan 28, 2013
The only thing I'm not a fan of is the side mirrors. Other that that it looks pretty good to me!
Colby Church Jan 28, 2013
I like the Huayra's styling. It's very unique and a work of art. Not to mention all of the awesome technology integrated everywhere. Looks may be subjective, but I think it looks great, and very clean. Not too busy.
Thibault Leroy Jan 28, 2013
This car has really grown on me
Cory Allen Jan 28, 2013
I like the styling of this, it reminds me of a Venus fly trap or deep sea fish!
Corey Alan Kelley Jan 28, 2013
Alright maybe not my first... But that second better watch out
Corey Alan Kelley Jan 28, 2013
I wish this car had more power though 700 is a lot don't get me wrong But it's an amazing car If it had Veyron figures I would easily give my first born for one
Matt Piccolo Jan 28, 2013
I hunk I have to say this is my least fav pagani ever
Jon Wheel Jan 28, 2013
Word for word what he said vvvv
Philippe Miot Jan 28, 2013
It really isn't a nice looking car....tech and build are amazing but just not digging the design.....prefer the Zonda styling!
Sam Harris Jan 28, 2013
I've never really liked this car. The only thing that keeps me away from it are the turbos. I'll take a NA Zonda any day over this car.
Description: So the Huayra was faster than the Ariel Atom V8 (1:15.1) and the McLaren MP4-12C (1:16.2) as well as other supercars such as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and Lamborghini Aventador. The Huayra is pow...

Agreed Dylan.
Dylan Bruder Jan 28, 2013
Peak hp is more a selling point than anything else I don't think most people on here understand what a powerband is
Ashton Summers Jan 28, 2013
Lets not forget that a V-12 is used for more than just HP. There are things called musical notes. You would have to be sniffing some Romanian sewer grade glue to not like the sound of a V-12.
Shathan Alkhalili Jan 28, 2013
The 918 ,F150 and P1 will all surpass it , dont forget how good the brands above especially the porsche which seems to be the underdog
William Downs Jan 28, 2013
Every comment is u bitching about how they should have used this motor instead, or that this motor can make more HP with less cylinders.. please go educate your self more on the automotive world besides Horse power and 0-60 times
William Downs Jan 28, 2013
But they don't have the smoothness this motor carry or the torque curves either, company don't pick more cylinders just to get more power, there is more to cylinder selection then just making power, what kind of racing will it be doing, how do they want it to behave, where do they want the power to come in... many factors besides HP in the size of a motor stop being a stupid ass horse power whore
Dennis Choong Jan 28, 2013
I don't think the 918 can beat the Huayra's record... it's too heavy at 1700kg
Michael Beach Jan 28, 2013
Ferrari is making a pickup?
Colby Church Jan 28, 2013
Wow, it's faster than the Ariel Atom. That's impressive, it's practically a go kart with a V8. Nice that Pagani can pull off performance like that, even with all of the luxury and technology incorporated. A very sweet package indeed.
Redge Diakité Jan 28, 2013
730hp don't forget the last 30hp :D
Jt Collier Jan 28, 2013
i see what you did there...
Jackson Michael Jan 28, 2013
Oh but you can. Carbuzz will probably even have an article on it
Janak Solanki Jan 28, 2013
What a profile. I would just change the wheels.
Elijah Whitmore Feb 02, 2013
Nevermind....
Elijah Whitmore Feb 02, 2013
Pagani copyright?
Pablo Herasme Jan 28, 2013
The front fascia has to go
Janak Solanki Jan 28, 2013
Masterpiece. Truly exquisite
Douglas Goncalves Jan 28, 2013
If I had the means this beast would be one of the cars in my garage!
Dylan Bruder Jan 28, 2013
Beautiful
Dennis Betz Jan 29, 2013
I heard the rear view mirrors are fashioned after a women's eyes!!!
Derrick McCarthy Jan 28, 2013
*straight on from the back.
Derrick McCarthy Jan 28, 2013
This car is like looking at a Dali painting for me. The more I look the more detail i see. The Mirrors make sense when you look at the car straight on like this. They don't look out of place at all.
Bruno Nanber Uan Jan 28, 2013
Welcome to carbonfiberland!!
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 28, 2013
Always loved how DIFFERENT this car looked. The curve of the mirrors, the dot lights... Amazing.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Jan 28, 2013
That's where the license plate goes...
Colby Church Jan 28, 2013
It says Huayra twice in the rear. I'm guessing the larger font is to suffice the elderly's diminishing vision. Haha
Sam Harris Jan 28, 2013
I do love this rear end though.
Omar Hash Jan 29, 2013
I almost bought this car last week. But the rep said I won't fit inside to drive one :(
Bill Estep Jr Jan 29, 2013
That's a very interesting looking e-brake
Greg Lewis Jan 29, 2013
Nut warmer! That's a first!
Samuel Reid Jan 29, 2013
I just... I just can't stand the Huayra. And this interior... yuck. Bring back the Zonda !
Ashton Summers Jan 28, 2013
Surprised the P-brake doesn't curve more toward the driver.
Jordan Nishida Jan 28, 2013
Love that interior
Pablo Herasme Jan 28, 2013
In way it kinda looks futuristic
William Downs Jan 28, 2013
There the lever to adjust the seats forward and back, and the whole point of then interior is to be over the top and a work of art, just like the pagani before it
Brett Vincent Jan 28, 2013
At least they gave the tip of the p-brake extra protection. How embarrassing would that be if something leaked out it and splattered onto the leather interior?
Jackson Michael Jan 28, 2013
The steering wheel is something I'd expect from Spyker lol
Janak Solanki Jan 28, 2013
Spectacular craftsmanship.
Austin Whitener Jan 28, 2013
Whoa that's amazing
Jason Brown Jan 28, 2013
@Jason lol. Was about to comment something similar, you beat me to it.
Derrick McCarthy Jan 28, 2013
It's phalic for sure, if that's even a word. Exposed linkage is killer.
Jacob Gardner Jan 28, 2013
If I had this I would change the Look of the "p-brake" lol. Love it tho
John Patten Jan 28, 2013
P brake lol
No Pistons Jan 28, 2013
Don't play with the P-brake too much, tends to stiffen up on ya
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 28, 2013
Holy... This is one of the best interiors I've ever seen.
Jason Bartlett Jan 28, 2013
Is that whale penis?
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Jan 28, 2013
Why do you call it the P-bra..... Oh!! I see what you did there.
Skyler White Jan 28, 2013
I hereby dub thee, the P-brake.
Garrett Farmer Jan 28, 2013
It's got a steampunk look to it.
Thibault Leroy Jan 28, 2013
Beautiful interior but i dont like the leather
Matt Piccolo Jan 28, 2013
The exterior isn't my fav, but damn, this is beautiful
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 28, 2013
@corey just give it a little tug you know you want to
Tn Ng Jan 28, 2013
@corey lol
Corey Alan Kelley Jan 28, 2013
Still not sure about that emergency brake...
Track Field Jan 28, 2013
Such a beautiful interior
