Pagani Huayra R Brand’s Most Extreme Track Car Yet

Pagani builds trackday monster

  • 9,200 rpm, FIA safe play toy

  • Pagani sharpens the Huayra edge a little more


Huayra R. It’s the most extreme car that Pagani has built so far and it’s intended solely for use on the track. With a more powerful V12, stratospheric redline, and the stunning bodywork and attention to detail that come with every model from the brand. Limited to just 30.

“The Huayra R, just like the Zonda R, is the freest, most extreme and performance-oriented Pagani car of all time,” said company boss (and the man with his name on the door) Horacio.

The Pagani Huayra R starts with a six-litre, 12-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that was designed in a partnership with touring car team HWA to give the car what Pagani calls “the lightest, most powerful and efficient track-ready V12 ever created.” 850 hp, 553 lb-ft, and a redline of 9,200 rpm in a package weighing just 198 kg that has become a structural element of the chassis, holding the transmission and subframes in place. Pagani says that it needs a service only every 10,000 km.

A six-speed sequential box with racing-style clutch, this is a non-synchro dog-ring box fore more efficiency, maximum precision, and likely completely intolerable for the road. Expect it to fight with the ceramic-coated Inconel exhaust to see which produces the most significant part of the soundtrack, though mufflers can be fitted to meet FIA track noise rules.

For Pagani, once the aero work was nearly done the car made 1,000 kg of downforce at 320 km/h, but Horacio wanted more style. The automaker said that as they reached more “sinuous and captivating” looks, “performance and aerodynamic efficiency improved.”

It’s track only, so there is a cage and fire suppression, and everything else needed to hit FIA GT standards. Just 30 will be sold, starting from 2.6 million euros before the government takes their bit. Oh, and there’s a clip of the sound, too. Enjoy.
