The New Pagani Huayra – World’s Fastest Catfish

After a super long wait and way too many teaser videos, Pagani Automobili has finally removed the wrappings on their latest and greatest supercar. The Pagani Huayra replaces the outgoing Pagani Zonda. Those who have been around long enough will remember that this blog featured two beautiful blue Zonda F in the header and a silver Zonda F was used in the first UBD redesign.

The design of the Huayra has created a lot of controversy, with most of the debate centered on the nose that look like the world’s biggest catfish. You either love it or you hate it. I think I will need to see it live before making up my mind. The cool thing is, I will be able to see it live because the Huayra is coming to America! Unlike the Europe and Asia only Zonda, the Huayra meets all US crash and EPA requirements.

Power for the Huayra comes from an AMG built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 producing more than 700 hp and an earth twisting 811 lb/ft of torque. Mate that to a car weighing 2,976 lbs and you have a land bounded rocket ship that will hit 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 230 mph. Power is sent through a seven-speed F1 sequential shift box that weighs only 212 lbs.

The price for the new Huayra is 1 million euros, which works out to about $1.4 million USD at today’s exchange rate. Better start saving!

    It’s a little like a catfish, but I’m not really a fan of gullwing doors in general. Can’t wait till the Stig takes it around the test track, though. “And across the line!”

    1. d3so says:

      Looks really nice! Gullwing doors are tricky lol. Is the Stig the same guy in both the US and UK version?

      1. John Chow says:

        No, they are different Stigs but the show will never admit it.

      2. Michael Kwan says:

        No, they are different Stigs. Even this season’s UK Stig is different than last season. Did you watch the Christmas Special?

    2. Hey Michael,

      I don’t particularly like the doors either. Any strong wind and rain and you can be in a big trouble with them.

      I do like the cast fish look and the look of the car in general, not only the front.

      1. John Chow says:

        No owner in his right mind would drive this car in the rain or any bad weather. LOL

      2. No, I wouldn’t want to open gull wing doors in rain, but chances are I would never drive it in rain.

    3. David Ng says:

      Haha, Top Gear for the win! Can’t wait for the new season!

    4. Just love the profile of this car. Man it is sweet!

  2. Lakhyajyoti says:

    Great design.But the price is very high.

    1. Fairooz says:

      Yeah it’s very high, but it’s worth it! 😀

  3. oceanlu says:

    Guess we’d have a better understanding of this world’s fastest catfish if they have outdoor test driving videos together with the dog?

  4. Mr. Chow,Are you planning to purchase one of them?

    1. John Chow says:

      While the Huayra does meet all US requirements and Pagani does plan to sell it in the US, there are currently no Pagani dealerships in North America. I’m taking bets on where the first showroom will be.

      1. It is difficult to locate their dealership network.Their website is in Italian and it is quite cumbersome to use Google Translate all the time

      2. The first showroom will be where the most money is. Hollywood, Ft Lauderdale or somewhere near Dallas?

  5. Dino Vedo says:

    Nice car, id buy it.

    1. That’s great bro

      Show me photos after you have bought it 😉

      1. You gotta have CRAZY money to justify a $1.4 million car. Just sayin.

  6. Vinay says:

    Very cool. Bit sexier than an actual cat fish 😛

  7. Kirk Taylor says:

    I’d put my money on Lamborghini Las Vegas. They seem to carry the really exotic stuff.

    It’s a great looking car.

    1. Lamborghini is my all time favorite.

      But this one looks good too

  8. Bash Bosh says:

    Looking this car, it seems Pagani has created one very good Ferrari-Lamborghini style hybrid. Absolutely looks great!

    1. And it fits my bucket list requirement of wanting to drive a 200mph auto before I die.

  9. Tyone eagle says:

    Nice dog though pretty sure it scares away any car paparazzi

    1. Fairooz says:

      haha agreed with you mate! 🙂

  10. PPC Ian says:

    I love it! Great car. Front of it does not bother me. Seems a bit expensive, however. 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      it should be pocket change for you! 🙂

  11. John Rampton says:

    I want one, seems a little steep for $1.4 Million. You can get a lot of sweet cars for the cost of that guy!

    1. Well, yea but Its one of a kind

  12. imagine says:

    Nice car porn 🙂

    That car would be a amazing to drive with 700 horsepower!

  13. This is my dream car now.

    Im in love with this car. I want it badly

    1. Congratulations you got your dream car !!
      Now make a trial to achieve the same.

      1. Yea, i will try my best to buy this one

        But its not going to be easy for sure

    1. John Chow says:

      I think they will paint it whatever color you want.

  14. nintendo 3ds says:

    Now this one is a bad a## mean machine. It’s just WOW! Period. $1.4 Million USD is also a hole in the pocket.

  15. Ha! What a cool car! …And so funny! It kind of does look like a catfish!

    1. Fairooz says:

      yeah! that car is very similar to that catfish! 😀

  16. fas says:

    Looks mindblowingly hot. Awesome.

  17. Really a well designed car this one and any one who will give the first look will fall in love with this design to have one but not possible for everyone to have such a valuable buy.

    1. I gace ti a first look and I’m in love with it.

  18. GTA 5 says:

    OMG That car is awesome!!! The price too… What I love the most is the design, I would love to see that car for real 🙂

    1. That is one sweet automobile. What more can be said?

  19. That’s crazy how much it does look like a catfish!

  20. There’s really such a thing as a 4 eyed catfish?

  21. Fairooz says:

    Wow! i like those cars! it really looks awesome! 😀

  22. Woah what an awesome design there. The big body, the doors and the lights. What is the maximum speed given by it?

  23. Neon SRT4 says:

    Huayra is really excellent design. I really did not see till now the sports car. Is this a sports car?

  24. Nice car, where are we going to create cars that fly? Kidding aside, I should start going to some car shows events to get more knowledge about the current technology of cars.

  25. I’ve always been a truck guy, but I could be talked into driving this baby quite easily!

    1. Driving a truck is difficult and requires a lot of abilities. When you get to learn to drive one, you probably could drive anything ( plane,etc.).

  26. Neon SRT4 says:

    The Images of Cars are Very Cool. Huarya is really excellent design.

  27. It does bear an uncanny resembelance to a catfish? I never would have put that together though had not the picture of the catfish been right below it. The gullwings could definitely be a problem if you planned on parking in a tight parking spot at the mall though 🙂
