Good Bye Sweet Zonda: 2011 Pagani Huayra AMG (C9)
The Italian supercar is built around an all-new carbon-titanium monocoque frame while the body parts are constructed from carbonfiber. Lightweight materials are used throughout the car, with the Huayra tipping the scales at 1,350 kg or 2,976 pounds.
Behind the passenger compartment sits a spanking new 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, specially built for Pagani by Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance division. The 12-cylinder beast churns out more than 700 hp and a torque of over 1000 Nm [737 lb-ft], with exact figures as well as performance numbers to be announced at a later date.
The enormous power and torque of the 12-cylinder engine from Stuttgart is transferred to the rear wheels through a seven-speed sequential gearbox cross and a dual-disc clutch.
While no official prices have been released yet, the Huayra is expected to cost around €1,000,000.
