The 2016 Pagani Huayra is a special edition. At first nobody thought that Pagani would make a competitive car but they proven everyone wrong when they managed to steal the crown of the most exquisite hyper car from Ferrari with their previous Zonda.
In order to keep the company among the best car manufacturers in the World they teamed up with AMG to make the best hyper car in the World and that is the 2015 Pagani Huayra Concept which is planned to be not just a fast car in a straight line but a fast car all around. The original model was released back in 2012 and since it became one of the fastest cars in the World on different circuits not only because of its power but also thanks to its incredible body shell.
The Engine range
As far as the engines goes, the 2015 Pagani Huayra Concept will likely get the same 6 liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine as before but this time, the power will likely go up from the current 730 horsepower to as much as 850 horsepower and more than 750 lb-ft of torque, giving it much better performance than before. The car is expected to hit 60 MPH in less than 3 seconds and go up to a maximum top speed of 237 MPH which is 6 MPH faster than the current generation. Just like before, the engine is going to be mated to a 7 speed sequential gearbox which will power the rear wheels only.
There have also been rumors about a hybrid Pagani which would take the LaFerrari and the new P1 head on. This would be powered by a new 4 liter AMG V8 coupled to a pair of electric motors and a set of batteries. This would make more than 900 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque but as far as we know, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet by Mr. Pagani.
While they might not be the most powerful engines out there, Pagani said that power is not everything but the way you use that power. Just like a racing car, the under-body is flat which helps with the airflow of the car a lot. This and the active aerodynamic system make from the Huayra one of the fastest cars out there.

Both the front and rear ends have active flaps, just like an airplane, which allows Pagani to shift its weight from one side to another or to even make the car more slippery through the air with ease. This system also allows for the massive car’s top speed as well as with the great downforce needed in a circuit race. Pagani went on this path because he didn’t want the car ruined by big wings, so we told his engineers to make the car look beautiful without losing performance at all.
On the interior, the 2015 Pagani Huayra Concept will be just as impressive as the current model. Hand made leather upholstery with sport seats and a lot of inserts that will make you feel in an art form rather than in a car are going to be available as standard. There will be no plastic but rather only aluminum, real leather and carbon fiber as well as glass for the infotainment system. The air vents are going to be carved from a single piece of aluminum while the seats are going to include the filler caps for the water and windshield fluid tanks.

The new model is going to come on the market by the end of 2015 and it will be just a small update of the previous model which is said to get a more powerful engine as well as better aerodynamics. The release price for this new model is expected to be 1.8 million dollars, making it more expensive than any other production car at launch.
