The New Pagani Huayra R, Is New Pagani's Monster!

This is the new Pagani Huayra R, also known as Maximus Supercarus. “The Huayra R, just like the Zonda R, is the freest, most extreme, and performance-oriented Pagani car of all time. The ultimate Huayra may not look different from the non-R version, though this one packs a host of unique features and parts, including a bespoke naturally aspirated V12 engine. Pagani builds the car around a new carbon-titanium monocoque chassis, which uses the engine and transmission as integral parts to increase stiffness and rigidity. Power routes to the rear wheels through a six-speed non-synchronized dog-ring sequential gearbox. A pair of active aero flaps at the rear help the car manage its aerodynamics.



Pagani sources its engines from Mercedes, which supplies the Italian carmaker with naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engines. However, the Huayra R needed something special, so Pagani partnered with HWA AG, Mercedes-Benz’s racing subsidiary, to design and build a bespoke engine. The result is a potent mill that produces 850 horsepower (625 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque. That power comes with a screaming 9,000 rpm redline, too, which should result in a downright brutal exhaust note. The company claims the Huayra R will sound like a Formula 1 car of yesteryear. Pagani plans on building just 30 of these track-only Huayra Rs, each costing €2.6m (plus tax) – somewhere around the £2.7m mark in the UK.
