2017 Pagani Huayra is an Italian-mid-engine sports car by Pagani. 2017 Pagani Huayra is named after Huayra-tata, a Quechua wind God. The Huayra was previously the fastest road car to go to the Top Gear Test Track, setting a time of 1: 13.8, beating the previous record of 1: 15.1 by Ariel Atom V8 set in January 2011, but it was beaten by McLaren 13.7: 675LT in June 2016 a record of 1 explained. On February 11, 2015, it was reported that the Pagani Huayra is sold out. The Huayra is limited to only 100 units as part of Pagani’s agreement with engine supplier Mercedes AMG.
2017 Pagani Huayra Performance
The Huayra uses a twin-turbo, V12 engine developed by Mercedes-AMG specially for the Huayra. The Huayra’s 6.0-liter engine, the M158, producing 730 metric horsepower (720 bhp (539 kW)) and 811 lb · ft (1100 N · m) of torque. Its top speed is about 238 km (383 km / h) and it has a rating 0-62 mph (0-100 km / h) acceleration time of 2.8 seconds. Using Pirelli tires, the Pagani Huayra is able to withstand 1.66 g of lateral acceleration at speeds of up to 230 mph (370 km / h).
2017 Huayra uses a seven-speed sequential gearbox and a single disc clutch. The choice, not a dual clutch used in an oil bath as a result of the increase in weight of more than 70 kg (154 lb), thus negating any advantage of the faster gear changes in a double-clutch gearbox. As a result, the entire transmission weighs 96 kg (212 lb). The Pagani 2017 Huayra is equipped with Brembo brake calipers, rotors, and pads. The calipers have four pistons front and four in the back. The rotors drilled carbon ceramic 380 mm (15.0 in) in diameter and 34 mm (1.3 in) thick.
2017 Pagani Huayra Engine
Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division provides the engine of the Huayra built by hand. The 5980 cc, twin-turbocharged, 60 ° AMG M158 V12 was designed at the request of Pagani to reduce turbo lag and improve response, realized with smaller Turbo, another intercooler setup and forth programmed settings ECU.
Like many high-performance cars, the Huayra used lubricating dry sump. It has a number of important benefits including guaranteed flow of oil, even if the car is subject to extreme lateral acceleration, preventing “oil boom” that allows the engine to operate more efficiently, while the lack of an oil pan allows the confirmation of the engine lower, lowering center of the car’s gravity and improving handling. The fuel consumption of the Huayra is 10 mpg (23 l / 100 km) in the city and 14 mpg (17 l / 100 km) in the highway (EPA test).
2017 Pagani Huayra water / oil heat exchanger reduces engine warm-up time on cold days and maintaining a stable temperature for cooling and lubricants. To reduce the use of pipes and fittings, the expansion tank is directly mounted on the engine. Intercooler fins act as an expansion tank circuit at low temperatures.
The titanium exhaust system was designed and built by MHG-Fahrzeugtechnik. Hydroformed joints are designed to reduce back pressure and ensure a free flow exhaust. Titanium reduces the weight of the exhaust system while the Inconel silencers improve reliability in the most exposed parts of the exhaust at high temperatures. The entire system weighs less than 10 kg (22 lb).
2017 Pagani Huayra BC
An even more extreme version called the Huayra BC model debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016. The Huayra BC is named after the late Benny Caiola, a friend of Horacio Pagani, and the first Pagani client. The Huayra BC an improved version of the standard Huayra’s 6.0 liter V12, twin turbo AMG engine, and now produces 789 brake horsepower (588 kW) and 811 lb⋅ft (1100 Nm) of torque. The dry weight is now reduced to only 1,218 kg for a 132 kg reduction in weight, thanks to a new type of carbon fiber that Pagani claimed is 50% lighter and 20% stronger than carbon fiber. Pagani also equipped the Huayra BC with a lighter titanium exhaust system, new aluminum alloy wheels, and a stripped out interior.
The tires are Pirelli P Zero Corsa that features 12 different rubber compounds, and the suspension and forks made of aviation grade aluminum, known as Avion. The Huayra BC 2017 has a new front bumper with a splitter and winglets, deeper side skirts and a diffuser air that extends the entire width of the rear bumper, and a massive rear wing. All the components are made of carbon fiber and add-ons.
The 2017 Huayra BC also changes to all but to maximize one of the body panels to downforce and drag to a minimum. The Huayra BC uses a next-generation 7-speed manual transmission and an electro-hydraulic control. Pagani has stuck with a single-clutch gearbox because it weighs 40% lighter than a double-clutch gearbox. All 20 units of the € 2.3 million Huayra BC coupe was sold out, and orders have already been launched for the BC roadster.
