To celebrate the Huayra's fifth anniversary, a Motor1 reader has sent us his idea of a limited-run WR version featuring an assortment of upgrades.
Back during the WorldCarFans days, reader Steve Morfouasse sent us a couple of imaginary brochures for two hypothetical models: Ferrari 458 GTO and Porsche 911 GT3 Cabriolet. Now, he’s back with another project to mark the fifth anniversary of the Pagani Huayra. Dubbed “Weight Race,” the made-up supercar is a hardcore version of the already intense Huayra Benny Caiola and comes with polycarbonate windows as well as an abundance of carbon fiber to shave off even more weight.
Speaking of which, the supercar has been imagined tipping the scales at a low 1,195 kilograms (2,634 pounds), thus making it 23 kg (51 lbs) lighter than the BC version. The diet also brought some changes inside the cabin where the infotainment system and the glove box had to be removed.
Also noticeable are the custom air vents dipped in carbon and redesigned to mimic the Zonda’s exhaust tips while the “WR” logo has been embroidered onto the headrests and on the dashboard as well to complement the special badge. The exterior’s Italian flag accents have been carried over on the inside as well in the same vein as the 2010 Zonda Tricolore.
Besides going to the virtual gym to cut fat, the Huayra WR has also put on some muscle as the biturbo 6.0-liter V12 engine has been taken from more than 750 horsepower (552 kilowatts) to a massive 800 hp (596 kW). The extra oomph of the Mercedes-AMG engine corroborated with the weight loss enable the imaginary Huayra to hit 62 mph (100 kph) in as little as 2.7 seconds en route to a maximum velocity of 226 mph (363 kph).
19-year-old Steve Morfouasse has envisioned the Pagani Huayra WR as a special edition limited to five units, making it even more exclusive than the Huayra BC capped to 20 units at $2.5 million a pop.
So, was it a waste of time or a decent effort? Let us know in the comment section below.
