The latest Huayra R boasts an all-carbon-body with a maximum track performance of up to 9,000 rpm and weighing in at only 1,050 kg dry. However, the most impressive feat belongs to the naturally-aspirated V12 engine, which generates 850 horsepower output and 750 Nm of torque. The basic specs alone push this hypercar to the top of Pagani’s leaderboard of extreme creations.
The R arrives with an AMG-derived 6.0L V12 that producers 553 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 – 8,300 rpm. While the chassis is weighted by an upgraded motor, co-developed by Affalterbach racing firm, HWA AG, it’s evidently lighter than the standard Huayra, coming in at 198kg or approximately 436 lbs and is paired to a six-speed sequential gearbox, also a masterpiece co-developed by HWA.
The automotive company makes extensive use of the carbon-titanium material, ensuring that the flex rigidity increases by 51 percent and also adding a 16 percent increase in torsional rigidity. The carbon fibre bodywork and panels are naturally light, ensuring the car achieves a “barely-over-a-tonne dry figure”.
The base price of the Pagani Huayra R starts off at approximately $3.74 million USD. The automaker promises that only 30 of these track-only supercars will be available, with each made bespoke to the buyer’s desirability.
