Thirteen Paganis tour through Italy
Family reunions of distant cousins can be dull occasions. But when the family is Pagani, that’s a different matter entirely...

It's made of 4,700 new parts, has gullwing doors so you don't have to tuck your knees to your forehead to get in, is longer, wider, faster and produces an aural sensation like nothing I've heard before. In the same way that Pagani used ground-breaking techniques for that Countach Evoluzione back in the day, he's done the same for the Huayra, and taken the composite game to another level. It's made entirely from carbotanium - where carbon-fibre and titanium strands are woven together - making standard carbon fibre seem both weak and heavy.
But this insatiable love of detail is the key ingredient of the Huayra, and a good indicator of HP's almost anal level of attention. Things like the 3,000 bolts that have each been individually branded, the key sculpted from a milled billet of aluminum into the shape of the car, and the glorious leather straps restraining the clamshell. There is apparently no "good enough" when it comes to a Pagani.
