While I was interviewing Horacio Pagani he offered me a go in his very own Zonda. Who was I to say no to not only more face time with the man himself, but a go in the ride he chose to keep?
To be allowed to drive a Zonda is an amazing privilege. To be handed the keys to Horacio Pagani's own private Zonda is simply ridiculous. Yet, that's what the XCAR team got to do.
At more than $1 million, the Huayra doesn't come cheap, but we're guessing Pagani will have no shortage of customers if this thing delivers on its performance promises.
We've got to doff our caps to Pagani. The Italian sports car company has grabbed the awesomeness knob with both hands and cranked it all the way up to 'amazeballs' with its new Huayra.
A rare sighting: the Pagani Zonda C12S in a web video.
If you think Ferraris and Lamborghinis are pretty out there, then the Pagani Zonda will reset your boundaries. And if you have a wheelbarrow of cash in the backyard you can now drive one on Aussie roads.
In an exclusive interview, we talk to Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili and the man who dreamed up the awesome Huayra and Zonda. We find out what it takes to build a supercar company from the ground up.
Pagani may not have the heritage of Ferrari or Lamborghini, but the Huayra cements its reputation as one of the greats. We went to Italy and took Pagani's latest out to experience a true hypercar.
The Pagani Huayra PT4 (Prototype 4) will be a testing mule for the new special editions of the Huayra.
The Need for Speed: Shift demo is PC only for now. Xbox 360 and PS3 demos will be available in October.
