Pagani brings the $1.1 million ‘God of Wind’ supercar to U.S. market
For the very first time, Pagani Automobili SpA will officially sell a vehicle in the United States. The Italian supercar manufacturer has announced that it will enter the U.S. market later this year with the new $1.1 million Huayra supercar. The Pagani’s first model, Zonda, never came to America throughout its decade-long production run. Named after Huayra Tata, an ancient God of wind, the Pagani Huayra has a 6-liter, 12-cylinder engine with two turbochargers built by Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance unit. The engine develops about 700 horsepower. The million-dollar supercar can reach speeds of up to 230 mph.
The air intakes behind the occupants have been described by the company as “a tribute to the supersonic aircraft of the late 1950s and 1960s.” Horacio Pagani, the company founder, said…
We are thrilled at the opportunity to represent the Pagani brand in the United States and we look forward to the successful launch of the Huayra. This automobile is the result of five years of dedicated effort from the Pagani team and we see this as an unprecedented opportunity to continue expanding our vision of the future for the supercar industry.
Although Pagani had releases pictures of the Huayra and information about its specifications in the end of the last month, the announcement of its availability in the United States is one big news for the American affluent. Last year, only 18 units of the Pangani Huayra were created, but the company has plans to double the production of the car by next year and fill some orders in America.
The Pangani Huayra supercar will its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
