The Pagani Huayra R is our new supercar obsession


According to Pagani, the 12-cylinder, 6-liter, naturally aspirated Huayra R engine, designed in collaboration with HWA AG specifically to meet the requirements of the Italian firm’s most distinctive construction, contributes significantly to the creation of the “most powerful and an efficient track-ready 12-cylinder car ever created “, which will be built in just 30 copies at a cost of € 2.6 million per unit without the occasional taxes.

Equipped with the latest technology from the racing world, the new engine delivers 850 horsepower at 8,250 rpm. and maximum torque of 750 Nm, already from 5,500 to 8,300 rpm. With an optimized direct injection system, which operates at 200 bar, according to the Italians, ensures the best in terms of thermodynamic efficiency and autonomy.

With “red” set at 9,000 rpm. The engineers from Affalterbach created a set that weighs just 198 kg, placing the Huayra R at the top of its class and in this area.

It is worth noting here that the 12-cylinder engine, which will require periodic maintenance no earlier than 10,000 km, is directly connected to the central monocoque of the construction, with which it forms a single structural element capable of supporting the transmission system and steel subframes. of molybdenum alloy.


The gearbox of the new Huayra R is 6-speed, serial type and asynchronous, and weighs just 80 kg, working with a clutch consisting of three metal discs that guarantee lightning changes and reliability in “hard” use.

The car monocoque, which is made of synthetic materials such as Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62, fully integrates the seats, ensuring maximum protection along with specially designed shock absorbing side structures and roll-cage.

The 1,050 kg Huayra R front panels are made of molybdenum alloy steel, and benefit from Pagani’s experience in the “simple” Huayra, while the rear panel, in combination with the engine unit, forms an integrated structure with the monocoque , resulting in an increase in torsional stiffness compared to the έκδοση road version by 16%.

Particular attention has also been paid to aerodynamics, with the Huayra R developing a vertical force of 1,000 kg at 320 km / h. From there, visually, the new “R” has, among other things, two new air intakes at the front to ensure maximum cooling and efficiency for the front wheel braking system, as well as directing the outgoing airflow to the side of the car.


Also different are the characteristic openings in the hood that “came” to improve the speed with which the air is expelled and to create greater stability in the front. The air vents above the wings are also different, while the air diffuser at the rear and the air intake on the roof with the integrated central wing have been redesigned.
