In a wild auction event, a 2014 Pagani Huayra, with only 592 miles on its odometer, recently modified hands for a staggering $2.9 million. The transaction took place on Bring a Trailer, where an enthusiastic buyer secured the 71st unit of the 100 coupes produced between 2011 and 2018.
Originally delivered to British Motor Automotive Distributors in San Francisco, California, as a US-specification model, this particular Huayra later found its home in a set in Illinois in 2016. The automobile boasts a particular aesthetic, featuring clear-coated carbon-fiber bodywork adorned with striking orange stripes. Powering this automotive masterpiece is a sturdy 6.0-liter Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 engine, equipped with twin turbochargers and dry-sump lubrication.
The facility is transmitted to the rear wheels through an Xtrac 1007 seven-speed automated manual transaxle, while the suspension incorporates Avional double A-arms and pushrod-actuated adjustable Öhlins coilover shock absorbers.
The Huayra, named after the Aymara god of wind and unveiled in 2011 as a successor to Pagani’s Zonda, showcases an intricate construction. Its carbon-titanium monocoque structure incorporates chromoly front and rear subframes, coupled with a composite safety cell surrounding the fuel tank. The carbon-fiber body, designed with lively aerodynamics, displays a wing-shaped profile.
Inside you’ll find tan leather-trimmed carbon-fiber-backed bucket seats provide an opulent and sporty ambiance. The inside features an aluminum shifter with exposed linkage, tan leather headrest covers, power windows, automatic climate control, a Sonus Faber sound system, and a touchscreen infotainment system housed in a solid aluminum upper console panel.
With its unique design, limited production, and impressive performance, this 2014 Pagani Huayra stands as a testament to the artistry and engineering prowess of the Italian automaker.
