Pagani has announced the Huayra Dinastia special edition which will be limited to only three examples.

The limited-run Huayra will serve as a celebration for the establishment of Pagani China Automotive Limited (PCAL) operations in China and Macau. The main theme will be the dragon which has a significant spiritual role in China and Pagani chose to build only three units (out of a 100-unit allocation for China) because the "number 3 pronounced in Chinese language sounds like the character sheng, which is the meaning of life, new birth."

Horacio Pagani himself selected three different colors (blue, gold, red) for these three carbon fiber-bodied Huayras and the cars have been previewed in a series of renders as well as highly detailed scale models showing dragon accents both inside and out.

Like the standard Huayra, the Dinastia special edition will be powered by an AMG twin-turbo V12 6.0-liter engine rated at 700 bhp (522 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm). Tipping the scales at 1,350 kg (2,975 lbs), the Huayra needs only 3.3 seconds to cover the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and tops out at 230 mph (370 km/h).
