220mph in the Pagani Huayra prototype
It’s never done a high-speed test run, but it’s about to take its first shot at hyperspeed…
Posted: 08 Jun 2012
I am sweating nervously in the passenger seat as prototype Huayra Number Three is brimmed with fuel, when a man wanders over and starts jumping up and down on the car's nose. Violent, full-force leaps, again and again. This is not what you want to see a couple of minutes before you're set to ride along on an untested hypercar's maiden voyage towards 220mph.
