The 2013 Pagani Huayra is Finally Coming to the U.S. by Year’s End!

For those fans of the Pagani Huayra, (namely me), I am very, very, very happy to report that the $1.66 Million Pagani Huayra is FINALLY coming to the U.S. (legally!). ¬†The first U.S. spec car for the very first U.S. customer in the should be in my driveway by May 2013 at the latest ūüôā ¬†I’ve heard that nailing it in the Huayra is like going full-power in an SR-71 (Motor Trend¬†Editor-in-Chief Angus MacKenzie compared it to putting the afterburners on in an F-15 [I’m all for speed and handling…]).

Huayra’s are meant to be driven. ¬†Fast. ¬†Very fast. ¬†The Huayra is such a safe car that it makes a Volvo S60 with every single safety option checked, look about as safe as a unicycle! ¬†Pagani has spent nearly $900,00 (NOT $90,000!) in developing a unique fuel system that helps eliminate the scary threat of fires in the rare event of a crash. ¬†Plus, Pagani is currently developing a sport + mode that will lower the car 10mm, switch off ABS, stability control, AND eliminate the Auto Upshift that currently happens when you are in Comfort Mode or Sport Mode. ¬†This will allow the driver more traction/control at higher speeds. ¬†ūüôā

The primary reason the Huayra wasn’t imported ¬†in to the U.S. had to do with airbags. The car had the wrong type of one-stage airbags (now it’s got two-stage airbags). ¬†That meant that in the event of a crash, the airbags wouldn’t completely deploy. ¬†Oops. ¬†Well, all the kinks are being ironed out and I can’t wait to start driving mine!

If you haven’t read my previous post on Huayra’s, Horacio Pagani, and other interesting Pagani vehicles, I strongly recommend your reading my post on Horacio Pagani: ¬†https://unmuffled.wordpress.com/2011/11/19/horacio-pagani-yet-another-great-car-guy/

Oh, and the video for the Pagani Huayra on their website is extraordinary and deserves it’s own Grammy award! ¬†The cinematography is enough to make you sell all your personal belongings and drive your brand-new Huayra throughout Argentina! ¬†If you wait a couple of years, I’ll do it with you!…http://www.pagani.com/huayra/default.aspx
