Since Evo first got its hands on a Pagani Huayra for testing, about a year after the hypercar debuted, Horacio Pagani's pride and joy has made a few video appearances – once in the hands of Chris Harris and once with a man who compared his new Huayra with an older Zonda on track. But access to the 900,000-euro ($1.22 million) hypercar has been limited, making XCar's recent drive a real treat.

The shape is beautifully simple, with active aerodynamics combining function with form that remind us more than a bit of the flaps or ailerons on the wings of a jet. While the twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V12 roars from the titanium exhaust system, the wheezing and wooshing turbo wastegate noises also remind us of a jet - either that or Darth Vader having a temper tantrum. Head on below to watch XCar drive the Huayra on some twisty Italian roads.

      I like that color combination better. It de-emphasizes the fish mouth and the wheels look better darker. Still love that exquisite interior.

      That interior is perfection, alone it can satisfy the 1 million price tag. I have seen million dollar cars with interiors from a 50k car. I am looking at you Hennessy.

        yeah that interior is spectacular, to say the least. It's what an exotic car should be.

      "The shape is beautifully simple" ??? it doesn't look simple to me...

        yeah I agree, that was a stupid statement, carelessly written. This design is not simple. In fact it's a bit fussy and overdone. which is not a bad thing when it comes to something exotic.

      XCar is such a great production. This video is among their best yet...I really felt the car. Lovely

      I don't find the shape of the car to be a classically beautiful, but like the Zonda the workmanship and attention to detail are stunning.

      This does not seem or look to be quite a solid and safe car as I original thought and believed after seeing this.

      Hooked up my TV and watched this in 1080p, no regrets. Stunning car, great video editing.

      From the article: "...The shape is beautifully simple, with active aerodynamics combining function with form..." No, it's just another clone of an old Lambo, McLaren, Lotus or Ferrari design: cramped, claustrophobic, overpriced and childishly overstyled. You'd think for a million dollars these clowns could could do something original, and useable. Hyper car, LOL. What will the next breathless superlative be: "Super Duper Hyper Car"?

        Pretty pathetic comment. I bet Angelo would prefer something disregarding aerodynamics but then he would something else to complain about. Or just buy a Prius.

        Taste is a matter of opinion but I think that Pagani interiors couldn't be more original. And I think they're stunning. If only they would build interiors for other marques.

      I dig the interior though. A bit of an acquired, "steam punkish" as he said, taste perhaps. Obviously I'll never see one so it's all moot :P
