Pagani Huayra - Click above for high-res image gallery
After taking a look at our high-res image gallery below, we were tempted to say the Pagani Huayra
made its o-fish-ial web debut... but we won't. Oh, wait.
In any case, Pagani's newest supercar can now be seen in all its glory, and we generally approve of the overall styling, despite the fact it's got something of a bottom-feeder fascia up front. Moving past that, we see a pretty serious set of gullwing doors and enough slats, flares and strakes to fill the sketchbook of a Boeing designer.
All those aero aids will surely come in handy when all the fury of the Mercedes-Benz
AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine is unleashed on the hapless pair of rear tires - the Huayra is said to be capable of speeds up near 230 miles per hour.
Over 700 horsepower and about 740 pound-feet of torque will be sent to the ground through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Couple that with a weight of just under 3,000 pounds - aided by copious amounts of carbon fiber - and you have the makings of a 21st century rear-wheel drive rocket ship.
Inside you'll find all the luxury touches you'd expect, including a cockpit slathered in beautiful hides and exposed aluminum and carbon fiber. You'll also bask in the glowing blue gauges and multi-function display that controls audio, navigation and communications gadgetry.
Even if we're just a tad stuck on that front fascia, there's simply no arguing with this level of performance. Have a close look at the Huayra below, then check out the (translated) press release after the break
