Saw a Huayra :O

Well, I've moved to London now, Maida Vale exactly, while there are some nice cars parked around there -- the real gems still in Knightsbridge ^^.

Was showing one of my dad's businesses colleagues son around from Istanbul, he seemed to like the architecture of the white houses and ect, so I showed him around a few places and we came to this hotel -- that's when I saw the Pagani and it was time to take pictures.

Whoooa, this is a very special car, I think it slaughters Lamborghini in the sound and looks department, certainly is the pin up car for today's kids.

Car certainly gets around as well, this was in Beverly Hills a couple of weeks back.

Thanks.

I would rather look at 458's and Ferrari's instead of a Pagani though

Incredible car. Horatio was a composites specialist at Lamborghini for some time. When they parted ways, Pagani car company came alive. I'm figuring it's safe to say that he made Lamborghini a target when trying to develop his idea of the ultimate supercar.

I prefer the car with silver rims and without the black roof finish.

this would look nice at night though.

I'll take it in full carbon with chrome rims and tricolori stripe and details!

Awesome car, pure perfection.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Horacio and what he has achieved. I do not think he had Lambo in his sights, he eclipsed them with the first car he made, let alone what he is making now. The 2 million+ rebodied Murcielago's and Aventadors (Reventon, Veneno etc) cannot be compared in any way with the premium engineering that is poured into the Huayra.

However, what I really don't understand about Pagani's is that the individual parts are so beautiful (and beautifully made), but that the sum of it is ugly. The only word I have for it.

I would also like to note that of all supercars, the Huayra sounds the worst by a country mile.

I want to love this car, but I don't. Nevertheless I loved visiting the Pagani factory, and as I said nothing but respect for the relentless pursuit of engineering perfection.

Spot on Onno, I couldn't think of a way to say it. But I agree exactly.
