Pagani has built just 100 examples of its spaceship-like Huayra supercar, and it’s doubtful no two have been exactly the same. Or even approximately the same. But only a few have been special edition to be bestowed with their own name.
One such is the car you see here, which has been christened Huayra Futura and was seen out in the wild for the first time earlier this month on the Lakes GT supercar rally by Youtuber Marchettino.
The Futura has been extensively modified over the ‘standard’ Huayra. It features massively wide fenders, a split rear spoiler - first seen on the Huayra Pearl - a see-through blue finish on the carbon fiber body, and one-off center-lock wheels with blue detailing.
The owner also specced the wonderfully-named Pacchetto Tempesta, which translate literally as ‘storm pack’. It includes a bigger front splitter and rear diffuser, four-way adjustable Ohlins dampers and the same titanium exhaust as found on the track-focused Huayra BC. Well, I say exhaust but ‘cannon’ might be nearer the mark. Or maybe ‘war trumpet’.
The noise comes from a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V12 engine, built by AMG, that produces 730 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque (1100 Newton meters). That’s enough for a 0 to 60 miles-per-hour time well below three second mark, and a top speed of 238 mph (383 km/h).
The interior of the Huayra Futura is swathed in blue leather upholstery and naked carbon fiber trim. I dread to think how much the owner paid to sit there. At least $1.5 million, I would have thought.
Amazingly, the Futura was not the only Huayra on the Lakes GT event - it is a very occasion indeed that you see two together. Marchettino was there his own Nissan GT-R and gave chase to the Huayras as the rally made its way through the hills. Though they’re clearly going very fast, you get the impression the Futura’s driver is only tickling it.
