Pagani Huayra Pearl is powerful, blue, and one of a kind
As you can see, it's distinguished by two-tone black and blue-tinted carbon-fiber bodywork, a restyled front splitter, dual rear wings, a unique snorkel air intake on the roof, and a white leather interior. The Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 furnished by Mercedes-AMG that drives the rear wheels through a seven-speed, single-clutch sequential gearbox. Though Pagani hasn't released any further details, that intake could help drive output beyond its standard 720 horsepower. For all its enhancements, though, it appears to be riding on the same directional turbine-style wheels as the standard model.
The Pearl edition was commissioned by its customer through supercar broker Refined Marques, which handles sales of exotic automobiles for customers around the world from its home base in the UK. Its unique status sets it apart from other Huayras, the model that followed the Zonda – of which there were many more special editions, including the Zonda F, Zonda Cinque, and Zonda R.
Now that production of the Pagani Huayra is winding to a close, the Modenese manufacturer is shifting its attention to further variants. It recently released the hardcore, track-focused Huayra BC, and is slated to reveal the Huayra Roadster in Monterey this summer – so watch this space for more.
Pagani spokesman Luca Venturi told Autoblog that developing the Huayra Pearl took nearly a year, resulting in "a suit that has been tailored specifically for one customer." Inspired by the Zonda R, the company's engineers tested the Pearl "extensively on track and on normal roads" in order to "improve the downforce, lateral G-forces, and ride quality."
