PAGANI AUTOMOBILI CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL WEEK IN MONTEREY WITH PUBLIC INTRODUCTIONS OF ITS ALL-NEW HUAYRA
Italian Manufacturer Furthered Victory with “Best in Class” Win for its Zonda R Supercar at Quail, A Motorsports Gathering
Monterey, Calif. (August 23, 2011) – Italian supercar manufacturer Pagani Automobili S.p.A. publicly introduced its all-new supercar, the Huayra, to crowds of automotive enthusiasts during the events leading up to the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, Calif. last week.
Named after Huayra, an ancient God of wind, the Huayra was first publicly seen at Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival 2011 and then again at Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, where hundreds of the most influential car enthusiasts, journalists, educators and industry executives met to see the car up close.
Horacio Pagani, founder and chief designer of Pagani Automobili, was on-hand to answer questions personally. The car boasts a revolutionary design, represents the state-of-the-art mechanics and features a Mercedes-AMG engine with more than 700 horsepower. The demand and enthusiasm about Huayra is great all over the world. The first deliveries for the American market will start in 2013 and will absorbe the production until 2014,. As declared by Horacio Pagani, Pagani Automobili will sell a limited number of cars also in the U.S. market, infact, despite the production increase compared to the Zonda, the small number of cars available in every market will make the object even more exclusive
The Zonda is also the supercar, togher with the Mclaren F1, that keeps the value more than any other car.
Also presented during the week was the Pagani’s Zonda R, the ultimate example of Pagani’s Zonda series, which was awarded “Best in Class” within the Supercar exhibit at Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, on Friday, August 19.
The Zonda received the 2001 “Car of the Year” award from British performance car magazine Evo and the 2002 “Performance Car of the Year” and “Specialist Manufacturer” awards from Car magazine and AutoCar respectively. The Zonda further cemented its status as one of the world’s premier high-performance cars in 2002 and 2007 by setting the Nurburgring circuit record for road homologated cars; the Zonda R currently holds the lap record. Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson crowned the Zonda R as the 2010 Jeremy Car of the Year.
