[VIDEO] Pagani Huayra driven by Autoblog image

The guys at Autoblog have recently went for a spin with the Pagani Huayra proving once again that a great supercar doesn’t necessarily have to have a long tradition like Ferrari or Lamborghini.

The Pagani Huayra is ending up in our news once again and after it made a discreet appearance during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Italian supercar is now taken for a spin by the guys at Autoblog. The official replacement of the Zonda doesn’t get a full video review in the footage posted below but, even so, almost every material with the Huayra is worth mentioning.

The Pagani Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-Benz AMG V12 engine with dual turbochargers, which is producing a total output of 700 HP, with a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (740 lb-ft). The Italian supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph). The Pagani Huayra is capable of withstanding 1.5G of lateral acceleration and its engine is mated to a seven-speed sequential transmission. The supercar is priced at 1,150,000 USD and it has been in production since 2011.
