litre AMG V12 twin-turbo

The Pagani Huayra is the latest supercar from Pagani Automobili.
The styling of the Huayra is more of an evolution of the Zonda's
than a complete revolution.
The Huayra has come in for some considerable criticism in the
looks department, mainly from people who don't like the gaping
front grille - and it's also been compared rather unfavorably
with a catfish. Of course there are others who think the Huayra
is a dramatic design which also manages to avoid looking like
yet another generic supercar.
Personally I think the Huayra is a quality design which will
stand the test of time. It's instantly recognizable as a Pagani
model - even without the badges - so it nicely complements the
outgoing Zonda. And the interior styling is out of this world!
An area in which everyone will agree the Pagani Huayra is a
success is the engineering and drivetrain. Mounted behind the
cockpit, within the carbon-titanium monocoque chassis, is a
6.0 litre V12 twin-turbo engine which produces 700 horsepower
and 1000 Nm of torque. The turbos have been engineered to offer
an instantaneous power boost, negating the effect of turbo-lag.
The Huayra's transmission is handled by a 7-speed sequential
gearbox and dual-disc clutch. All 700 horsepower is channeled
to the rear wheels.
