Pagani Huayra review

Published: 13 Jan 2015


What is it like to drive?

At first, the Huayra is intimidating. The weight-saving sequential gearbox is clunky and it doesn’t like going slowly. So, well, don’t. And that’s easily fixed: the engine is absolutely mental. The car feels, and sounds, like a literal explosion, as soon as you hit the throttle. It’s fast enough to make you squeak. For very good reason are those airbrake flaps there, believe us. It’s perhaps not ultimately as fast as a Veyron, but boy, does it feel it. In this mind-warp rush, it’s easy to forget other aspects: luckily, the dynamics are also excellent: it feels relatively small, rides brilliantly and has excellent steering feel. An astonishing, breathtaking car to drive.
