Here are the important numbers: a bespoke single-clutch seven-speed automated Xtrac gearbox; kerbweight of just 1390kg; 0-60mph (like it's relevant) in 3.0 seconds; a top speed is over 235mph, although this might be limited to avoid having to use bespoke tyres like those fitted to the Bugatti Veyron.Inside, it's an amazing mix of hi-tech instrumentation and traditional materials. It looks better with familiarity, and is packed with interesting features, sich as the gear selector that rises from the centre console, Jaguar XF-style. The multi-function steering wheel, which incorporates controls for the lights, wipers, indicators, even Pagani’s version of the manettino switch, which alters both the electronic stability control and gearbox settings, is a nod to Ferrari's way of doing things.
The Huayra is expected to cost around £1,000,000 in the UK, but as one seasoned Pagani (anonymously) told Octane, 'it seems to be that the more Horatio charges for his cars, the more he sells.' It will be interesting to see how it does at Bugatti money.
