Pagani Huayra: Unpronounceable Goodness

Posted in Geneva Motor Show, Pagani, Supercars by Kurt Ernst | March 4th, 2011 | 1 Response |

Stunning car, unpronounceable name. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get the name of Pagani’s latest supercar out of my mouth. Is it pronounced “Hoo-A-rah”, or is it more along the lines of “Hoy-ra”? I’m not even going to venture a guess, but I’ll say this: toss me the key and let me spend a day driving it, and I don’t care what you want me to call it. Pagani seems to understand that supercars should be designed and built with passion, and that sometimes subtle technology is better than in-your-face technology. From what I’ve seen, the Huayra’s interior is a work of art, befitting a car that costs as much as six McLaren MP4-12Cs. Enjoy videos of the car in action, and in the studio, below. Read More…

Pagani’s follow up to the Zonda supercar is named for Huayra Tata, the “Father of Wind”, as worshipped by peoples in Bolivia and Peru prior to European settlement. The fact that the name is utterly unpronounceable in English won’t stop Pagani from brining it to the United States, and that’s a very good thing. A few Zondas made it to this side of the pond, but none were “officially” imported by Pagani. The Huarya represents Pagani’s first attempt at branding, marketing and selling cars on this side of the pond. Read More…

The 10 Most Expensive Cars, According To Forbes

2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Bugatti Super Sport tops the list.

If you ever see me giving stock tips on RideLust, be afraid. I’m not a “play the stock market” kind of guy, and every spare dollar I’ve ever made has gone into cars, bikes, racing or travel (usually centered around cars, bikes or racing). With that in mind, you have a certain right to be skeptical when Forbes publishes a list of the most expensive cars. First, it’s only a snapshot in time, as new supercars are introduced every year. Next, there’s no clarification on where the prices are from, so I assume they’re a manufacturer’s list price, translated in to U.S. dollars. That’s hardly an accurate representation, as cars typically sell for higher prices in the EU than they do in the United States. Finally, any car’s price is based on supply and demand: since the entire run of Bugatti Veyron Super Sports has been spoken for, good luck finding one at the list price of $2.6 million.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Live Action Trailer

After watching this live action trailer for Electronic Arts new video game, “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit” it’s apparent to me that every police precinct on the planet should be equipped with a Lamborghini Murcielago. For a car guy seeing a police chase like this is pretty much on par with your favorite wet dream, which is exactly what the guys at Electronic Arts were hoping for. I downloaded the demo for XBOX 360 and have to say that it really is quite entertaining. You can play as either law enforcement or the bad guys and as time progresses you gain access to new faster cars, different tracks and special automotive modifications. Shooting a quick live action version though is really going to help seal the deal for fans of the series. I mean really, is there anything better than seeing a hopped up Pagani Zonda running from a Lamborghini Murcielago with a light bar on top? I don’t think so…

I first told you about the Pagani Zonda Tricolore a few months back. Built to honor Italy’s Frecce Tricolori 313the Aerobatic Training Squadron (their equivalent of our Blue Angels), the ultra exclusive Pagani is finished in translucent blue and black carbon fiber, offset by striping in the colors of the Italian flag. How exclusive is it? The Pagani Zonda Tricolore is one of one, which makes the Ferrari 599 GTO seem kind of like a Chevy Malibu in comparison.
