The Pagani Huayra - Roaring god of wind

In 2012 we are are expecting an exotic Pagani with an even more exotic name - Huayra .The name comes from a god of wind in the Andes, an appropriate calling for a car boosted by a twin-turbo V12 and meant to fly along the ground at 230 mph.

The 2012 Pagani Huayra is more than just an evolution of the Zonda. It starts with the engine, for the Zonda's racing-specification, normally aspirated 7.0-liter Mercedes V12 has been replaced by an AMG-tuned twin-turbo 6.0-liter Mercedes V12.

In standard form, the turbocharged 5,980cc V12 will have an output of 700 BHP at 6,300 rpm and 664 pound-feet of torque from 2,500-4,250 rpm. The Sport version will create 730 BHP and 811 lb-ft of torque. The standard engine has been took from the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. Horacio Pagani notes that this turbocharged Powerhouse car makes it possible to meet air emission regulations, so he plans to get a certificate for the United States market.
