Video: The Pagani Huayra Documentary

By | March 14, 2012

Pagani HuayraPagani Automobili is one of those rare supercar builders that was able to make a name for themselves by not only having experience with Lamborghini, but also for their push towards automotive excellence.  First introducing the Zonda in 1999, Pagani struck hit the ground running gaining instant popularity and credibility in the automotive world which was an incredible leap for such a small company.  What was the difference that made them stand out?  It wasn’t the car’s performance which, don’t get me wrong, was fantastic, however, it wasn’t the fastest or best handling car on the road.  Instead, what the boys at Pagani did was create a masterpiece.  It was entirely hand crafted and unlike many who try to build a supercar out their garage, they didn’t steal parts from BMW or Ford for their interior.  The only thing they didn’t do was build their own engine which they left AMG in charge of.  Over the past decade there have been many revised versions of the Zonda starting with the Zonda S and ending with numerous one-off “Final Editions” such as the Zonda Uno as well as the racey Zonda R.

When Pagani announced a replacement for the Zonda I could hardly wait!  But, then when I first set eyes on the creme/beige colored Huayra, I was left feeling disappointed.  There was no huge rear wing and that bottom-feeder mouth for a grille?  But then I saw the metallic red one that debuted at Geneva in 2011 and that all went away and I had my faith in Pagani once again.

I grew up wanting to design cars and so anything I see that has anything to do with the design process or inspiration of a car and I come running!  In this video you will see through the eyes of Horacio Pagani and see the what, where, why, and how this car was designed.  See for yourself!

This website used to have more professional sounding writers.  All this guy talks about is the color of a freaking car.  Plus, you have to read it like 5 times because his grammar is so horrific.  Please take this guy off the site.

I was trying to let the video do the talking and I guess I added too much fluff.  My apologies!

Hey Disappointed. Thanks for the feedback. We really do appreciate it an take it seriously, especially from long-time readers.

I don’t know if you know this or not, but all of our writers here are 100% voluntary. No one gets paid or compensated for their efforts in any form. They do it because they’re gear heads and passionate about the industry, and I can tell you that when I look at bringing a writer on board to produce content enthusiasm and excitement speak volumes more than anything else. These are the guys that won’t get burnt out after an article or two. These are the guys aren’t in it for a paycheck or recognition. It is hard to find writers like this, and Chance happens to have those qualities. 

Chance is also a new writer here. He’s coming in to a group of us that have been here since the start and it’s not going to be a cakewalk to match our tone and style of writing. To some people, this may not be his best article and admittedly there were a few grammatical issues, but it takes time to match and hone tone, style, and feel, and he’s going through that process right now. Hopefully you can appreciate that.

On a side note, Chance, I totally agree that the metallic red makes that car look so much better than that bland creme color.
