When you think of Pagani cars, it’s natural to think of craftsmanship, performance, and a Platonic ideal of automotive beauty. All of those elements and more come together in the Pagani Huayra, the latest supercar from Horacio Pagani, and perhaps his most compelling automotive vision yet. It’s easy to get lost in the visual elements—the gullwing doors, that shovel front and curvaceous cockpit—all of which are distinctly Pagani. The same goes for the interior—a lush mixture of aluminium and leather and, oh yes, fine Swiss craftsmanship (for the dashboard instruments, in particular). Of course, with the performance the Huayra is capable of--700 bhp blasting out of the AMG- derived twin turbo V12--you’d be forgiven if you failed to pay attention to the car’s interior while the world streaks by at a top speed of more than 230 mph. The Huayra has been a long time in the making--Pagani began work on the car in 2003. But, like all works of art—automotive or otherwise—true beauty takes time.
