TG meets the Pagani Huayra
Come with us for a closer look at the sensational Zonda successor, after last week’s packed public debut in Geneva

From a hundred yards away, it could only be a Pagani. The shovel front and bubble cockpit melt into a tail end long enough to launch a fighter plane - long enough to cover that huge V12, a race-type pushrod suspension and a set of storm-drain exhausts. From closer, the surfacing is far more modern than the Zonda, though the singularity of the man's vision and the sheer length of time over which it was designed means it's never faddish. The four tailpipe exits, the sharp-eyed little headlamps are nothing but Pagani. Same goes for that stretched-oval motif, which is all over the car, inside and out. And composite structure and panels, Horacio's trademark, laid out with micro precision and joints so perfect you'd think they were printed on, if they didn't have such a shimmering 3D beauty.
