Jay Leno's Garage gets its hands on the Huayra

The video seems to be throwing a server-side error. Follow the link to watch it on NBC.com.

Horatio Pagani invites Jay Leno on a nearly whiplash producing ride in the new Pagani Huayra (why-ra) for a piece on Jay Leno's Garage. The car was inspired by the feeling of plane right before it leaves the tarmac during takeoff. From the sound of the turbochargers at full tilt to the obvious g-forces being placed on its occupants, we think Pagani may have accomplished its goal.

Pagani Huayra denied U.S. access

In a blow to Pagani, the U.S. government has denied a petition for exemption from provisions set forth by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, specifically its advanced-air-bag requirements. Pagani made the request for the exemption, stating that otherwise it would endure substantial financial hardship. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) denied the request because it believes small manufacturers now have better access to such technologies since the rule was first put into place. It notes that Spyker and Lotus, who also have exemptions pending, are trying to develop the airbags in-house or are currently working with suppliers to gain access to such systems.

With access to the U.S., Pagani was hoping to increase sales to 35–45 a year with 6–12 of that being from the United States. In its petition, Pagani estimates it would make 5,398,000 euros (approximately $7,693,229) in net income during the period of 2011–2014 without the exemption, compared to 8,613,000 euros (approximately $12,275,247) in net income during the same period if an exemption were granted. Pagani insists that without the exemption, it could not obtain the required air bags (and thus enter the U.S.) until 2015. Pagani was also hoping to increase production, which is currently capped out at 25 units a year. It had plans to expand its production capacity to 50–60 units per year worldwide with the capital it would take in by selling cars on U.S. soil.

The NHTSA started requiring advanced air bags in 2000 to improve the protection for occupants of all sizes, belted and unbelted, in moderate-to-high-speed crashes and to minimize the risks posed by air bags to infants and children in low-speed crashes.

Pagani announces Huayra dealer network

Pagani Automobili has announced its new dealer network for the United States. The first two dealers are located in California: the Auto Gallery of Beverly Hills and British Motor Cars in San Francisco. Pagani indicated that it is still evaluating future dealer locations.

Both dealerships will begin taking orders for the Huayra in mid-2011, with the first customer deliveries expected for early 2012. The announcement of the two dealers marks the first time U.S. enthusiasts will have the opportunity to obtain a Pagani automobile in the states.

Due to its exclusivity and limited production, neither dealer will have a Huayra on their showroom floors, but Pagani plans to have a demo car in the U.S. that will be made available for select events, client viewings, and possible dealer events starting in 2012. The company also welcomes clients to visit its factory in Italy, for the best possible way to experience Pagani.

Car magazine scans of the supposed Huayra hit the web

A scan of the next cover of Car magazine was posted on Teamspeed.com, revealing what is being declared the Pagani Huayra to the motoring public. The release of that scan was followed by CarsUK.net releasing images it has of the Huayra to draw in visitors to its web site. It is an often shadowy world, where big car magazines obtain the pictures and information of an upcoming car in return for keeping everything under wraps until an exact date of release is met. Early reveals may make you the talk of the automotive town, but it will also cost you for breaking a contract and you may lose the ability to obtain information early in the future. It is business ethics at its best.

The early release of what is being called the Huayra comes on the heels of the fourth of five teaser videos being release by Pagani.

Pagani developing C9 to replace Zonda

Horacio Pagani discussed details on his company’s upcoming supercar the C9 with Argentina Auto Blog. The C9 will replace Pagani’s current Zonda model towards the end of 2010. Power will come from a Mercedes-derived 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 that makes 700 hp and 738 lbs.-ft. of torque. This is the same engine used in the track-only Zonda R but in that application it made 750 hp and a less-desirable 524 lbs.-ft. of torque.  In comparison to Zonda’s roadgoing model, the Zonda F was powered by a 7.3-liter V-12—the same engine used in the very rare SL73 AMG of the mid to late '90s and early '00s—making 602 hp. That number grew to 650 hp and 678 hp for the limited-edition Zonda Cinque.

Horacio said that production of the Zonda will end in September although the R version and some limited edition models will continue to have their orders filled. It is quite possible for new Zondas to continue showing up for the next three years in places like U.S., China, and the Middle East.

The C9 will be a completely new model and not just an upgrade to the existing model. The car will feature a carbon-titanium chassis, Avional-forged (a type of high-strength aluminum alloy) suspension, Pirelli developed tires, Bosch electronics, and will meet California’s emission standards and U.S.’s safety standards.

The C9 is expected to be priced at 900,000 Euros or approximately $1,275,000.
