Chinese-Built Pagani Huayra Looks Good, From Afar
Ever since the Pagani Huayra broke cover in 2011, it has been captivating the minds of fans worldwide: both those with the funds to afford one, and the rest of the world, which simply cannot. As such, the more industrious of that latter group have taken to building replicas…in China…out of what looks like cheap plastic. You see where this is going. So how does this faux Pagani stack up?

From afar, not terribly. If it screamed by you on the highway, you might not notice its rather obvious inaccuracies. Though considering there’s little chance of a Mercedes AMG V12 packed underneath its haunches, that screaming might just be your own.
The replica Pagani has somewhat of a described-over-a-phone-conversation vibe to it. It tacks on some of the necessary bits – side gills, slotted head lamps, a trio of taillights – but the execution isn’t what you’d call Pagani craftsmanship, and the front grill is regrettably a large miss.

However, that’s not to say that this isn’t cool. Can you imagine being the only guy in town to whip around in a Pagani, even if it is only a knock-off? After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Given that this might be the world’s first Huayra Roadster – a model that Pagani plans to legitimately build in a handful of years – one could even call it a ‘one-up.’ Ball is in your court, Pagani.
