What would you say to a crash tested Pagani Huayra? “Well, bring it on, the more, the better” would be the obvious answer.
Jokes left aside, car safety is an extremely delicate subject in our era and there are whole industries which are in charge of developing, creating and implementing new safety systems to vehicles. But have you ever wondered how safe you would be in a supercar or a hypercar? Well, no matter what your answer would be, we invite you to watch a small video in which a Pagani Huayra is being crash tested in a controlled environment. However, don’t expect any technical details on it at this point as these aren’t available just yet.
As a small reminder, Pagani has been producing the Huayra in Modena, Italy, since 2012. This has been designed by none other than Horacio Pagani and it should have come as a successor for the Zonda. However, the Zonda has never been left out of the equation as more and more special and one-off editions are being rolled off every few months. The Huayra is a two-door coupe hypercar with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. It stands at 4,605 mm in length, 2,036 mm in width and 1,169 mm in height, with a curb weight of 1,350 kg. The model is using a 6.0 liter V12 engine developed by Mercedes-AMG which has 720 HP (539 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the hypercar needs just 3.0 seconds and top speed stands at 370 km/h (230 mph).
