Italy. A country of great food, great culture, and great driving. Well okay, two out of three isn’t so bad. In the five days I spent in Tuscany I fell in love with the country that gave us gelato, bolognese sauce, and of course, some of the best dream cars ever made.
For decades, the most extreme cars you could buy from Italy came from two companies: Ferrari and Lamborghini. And they’re still incredible, no doubt. But these days one upstart automaker makes cars so insane they make the old guard look like they’re cranking out economy cars. Welcome to a rally for Pagani owners.
I have a confession to make, and it’s one that haunts me even during my waking hours: I am absolutely terrified of Paganis. They freak me out like not much else can. It’s not the price, it’s definitely not the power, and it’s not anything about the general functioning of the car. It’s those damn headlights.
I bumped into this video again today for no good reason. I was on the internet, I thought of car sounds and invariably I ended up here.
It’s not yet March nor is it the Geneva Motor Show, but here is the new Pagani Huayra Roadster before us. Its silky curves emboldened by that familiar carbon-fiber pattering, drenched in an inky blue. Its roof now cut and open so you can show yourself wearing your Roadster with pride.
You knew it was going to happen, I knew it was going to happen. But not like this. Something as beautiful and amazing as a Pagani Huayra Roadster deserves better than a shady, fuzzy leaked photo of a rendering.
I think my favorite segment of the automotive industry right now has to be the mostly unofficial Chinese low-speed electric vehicle market. It’s mostly unregulated, dynamic, and there’s lots of room for ideas, good and bad. It’s also the place that lets a 4 horsepower electric Pagani Huayra knockoff exist.
I like Pagani as a company because it does crazy and wonderful things that make Lamborghini look like, well, Volkswagen.
While the Pagani Zonda first showed its shape to the world in the last century, it still remains one of the most striking supercars on the planet. It is an unending beauty. Fittingly, here’s an unending loop of Pagani’s Zonda R.
The Pagani Huayra is powerful, fast, a work of art—and not immune to recalls, either, as it turns out.
Paganis. So terrible, so ugly. So mass produced. So boring. So slow. So underpowered. So not Italian. So gross. So single exhaust-piped. So blah. All in one glorious spot.
About two months ago, the world caught its first glimpse of a beautiful blue bespoke Pagani Huayra called the “Pearl.” With its dual splitters in the back and carbon fiber intake on the roof, the car was truly one of a kind. And now it’s gone.
Fast cars, elegant wallpapers. That’s what we’re all about here at Jalopnik, right? Right. Perhaps the first one is slightly higher up on the list, but hey—both are nice to have.
The Pagani Huayra BC is everything that a gearhead could dream of: it’s a lighter, more powerful version of the already light and powerful Pagani Huayra. Also, it’s named after a dude named Benny.
The Pagani Huayra is an already light and powerful car made of carbon fiber and titanium. Now Pagani has introduced the Pagani Huayra BC, which is lighter and more powerful thanks to carbon fiber and titanium.
A wreck in South Beach Miami apparently involving an Uber driver and the Pagani Huayra owned by Kris Singh left the latter down a wheel, marking the first time a $1.4 million (that’s a low estimate) Huayra bit the dust in America. Pour one out for this special machine.
There isn’t much to know about the new Pagani Huayra BC just yet, but a few shots posted—and some now deleted—from this weekend might have just leaked its new looks over a month in advance.
