For the price of one Pagani Huayra R you can buy 200 Toyotas

No, wait… we have to nuance that. You are allowed on the track with the Pagani Huayra R, but you are not allowed to participate in races. The colossus does not comply with the regulations. As with the Zonda R, Pagani has aimed the rules in the trash. The spectacular result is the Huayra R: a car that is little more than a track toy for the super rich.

Pagani Huayra R has little to do with the Huayra

As said, you are not allowed to mount a license plate on it. You have to drag it on a trailer to your favorite racetrack and then you can go crazy for an afternoon. Under the skin, the Pagani Huayra R also has little to do with the ‘normal’ Pagani Huayra. The circuit version is largely made of carbon fiber and titanium and therefore weighs no less than 200 kilos (1050 kilos).

V12 with slightly more power, but much less torque

The engine is also different. The already existing Pagani Huayra has a 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, which in the hardcore BC version delivers up to 800 hp and 1001 Nm. For the Huayra R, Pagani has opted for an atmospheric variant of its twelve-cylinder. The block delivers slightly more power (850 hp), but much less torque (750 Nm), due to the lack of turbos.

Pagani Huayra R sounds like an old Formula 1 car

The turbocharged V12 of the ‘regular’ Huayra sounds like a vacuum cleaner compared to the new naturally aspirated engine. According to Pagani, you can hear an old Formula 1 car in the soundtrack of the Huayra R. The expensive trackday special has a sequential six-speed gearbox, Brembo brakes and electronically adjustable dampers.

Only thirty units of the Huayra R are being built

It is not known exactly what the performance of the Pagani Huayra R is, but we probably don’t need to worry about that either. Pagani reports that the R’s spoiled body generates around 1,000 kilograms of downforce at 320 km / h. Only thirty copies of the special Huayra are being built. They cost 2.6 million euros each, excluding taxes.
