Hammond’s Car of the Year: Pagani Huayra

“My Car of the Year is not going to revolutionise personal transport, reinvent
motorsport or solve the looming energy crisis. It is a machine so unlikely ever
to be a real, material presence in most of our lives that it may as well be a
unicorn. And there it is: the Pagani Huayra. Perhaps unicorn is the best way to

Well, someone had to nominate the Huayra. And Richard – being someone who embraces
guilt-free boyish excitement – fell in love with the most outrageous car of

Pagani. In this month’s Top Gear magazine, Richard finally gets a chance to
play with the Huayra around our deserted Dunsfold track, and it’s fair to say

Read all about the Huayra being put through its paces by Richard in Top Gear magazine’s Awards Issue: out now.
