Its all-new transmission is a seven-speed automated manual, which Pagani promises will cut down on shift times without making the car uncomfortable.

There's also a new electronic rear differential to keep all that power from overwhelming the grip at every corner.

The Huayra BC costs 2.3 million euros (about $2.5 million, £1.8 million or AU$3.6 million) and all 20 copies are already sold out, but the car is both Euro6 and CARB compliant, so you could theoretically buy one in the US when it goes on sale.
