2011 Pagani Huayra – Click above to watch the video after the jump

You've seen the glorious new Pagani Huayra hurtling around the European countryside like the mystic wind it's named for, but so far, the little details that really make the Huayra a Pagani have been scant.

Allow us to remedy that. The following video gets up close and personal with the glorious Huayra, and its level of fit and finish appears to be as ridiculous as its performance figures and deified lineage. From the buckled leather straps that hold down the front and rear decks, to the willowy, leaf-like carbon fiber rearview mirrors, this thing is every bit a super car.

What we like most is that none of this stuff, with the possible exception of the seat belts, appears to be parts-bin material. From the hand-formed quad exhaust, to the LED lighting, to the milled aluminum dash, Pagani has gone the extra five miles to make this car exclusive and unique. Given the price they're expected to charge, such attention-to-detail only seems fair. Thanks for the tip, Marco!

      This is what Chris Bangle means on how supercars are to be designed.

      Great job Pagani Automobili!

      I wish i liked this car, but sigh, looks so outdated and bland and old fashioned. Makes the McLaren F1 look like a futuristic concept car by comparison.

      I actually thought this car looked more modern. Car's like the new McClaren look dated with their gills and stuff, this looks more organic to me. like the way the mirrors/taillights look like leaves. or how the whole body swoops gracefully. I don't think it mixes as well with the hardcore super car look or the imaginary jet fighter interior like the zonda did.

      Not a fan of the front grill on this new car but the monochromatic black on the red car looks better than on earlier pictures. Still, if I had the money - I would have to see it in person first before I put down a deposit. Don't mind the way the wheels look at all.

      @BoxerFanatic...

      This is not a concept car, it is the production version of Pagani's new road car.

      I do agree that few will ever see it in the flesh though. But, if you do have the opportunity it *does* look better live. It is also the first car they're going to bring to the US so...who knows? :)

      @ everyone :)
      The bland colour shown in this video (and the pics) is not the best for the shape either. The red/black exterior combo at Geneva worked much better. Why? Because they used black on the really "interesting" parts like the fish mouth which made all those oddities fade into the distance.

      The exhaust still looks like a military grade weapon and the taillights almost mimic the pattern.

      As for the wheels, I wholeheartedly agree that they're nasty. They look sort of like a child's drawing of "wind" (as in the name) but for me it still doesn't work. A great opportunity for aftermarket companies!

      The interior is simply "detail-icious" and marvelous to look at and touch as with the Zonda in its many iterations. If only GM could learn a few things from Horacio and his team!

      Still, it's fantastic that there are companies that can produce wonderful road cars like this one. And now the real question, "What's it like to drive?!"

      Zonda way better looking.

      The interior is way to steampunk cool for me, a car of this nature shouldn't have such retro-esq controls. It looks like they stole a '50's concept car that was supposed to be from 2011 and copied it.

      This thing makes the Ferrari FF look incredible.

      The premise of the car is good.

      The execution is weird. I like the doors, especially with the transparent overhead panels. It would be great if those transparent panels were removable.

      The side duct is kind of cool.

      But the front styling is disturbing, and the back styling is not much better.

      The craftsmanship is amazing, no doubt. I just wish the design aesthetic were amazing to match.

      The GWA C111 resurrection is a cleaner design, but so far only a rendering.

        I've got one question, have you seen one in real life?

        Because at first, looking at the pictures I was kinda dissappointed aswell, but when I saw it for real,... holy moly this things got presence.. I thought it looked fabulous and the back end looks way cleaner compared to the zonda. By fr my favorite car in the gva motor show

        I generally like the car - it's well-detailed. The only thing I have qualms with is the front intake.

        It makes a statement as a supercar should, so Pagani gets points for that.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I think this is one of the most beautiful cars i've ever seen, it's like an art piece. It actually looks quite sophisticated, like a visual artistic statement , just like the Zonda. It looks like nothing else out there and manages to make the classic supercar shape look fresh again, just like the Zonda.

      The design looks to me a little bit steampunk, a little bit artdeco. It makes all of the other cars look so 1990 (including the reventon or the FF). Also, the music fits the image perfectly - can anyone name the artist?
      • 3 Years Ago
      It's nice I suppose, but there is something a bit off about it, weird even. Maybe it look better in the metal.
