I've seen this so many times before... I call it 'The Scourge' of modern automotive design: A most beautiful shape marred by a few horrid details... *sighs*

And now I'm sad :(

Oh dear, it looks truly awful in that pic. I put it at the same level of awfulness as the Gumper Apollo. And what are those flappy spoilers at the back? Asymmetrical downforce...maybe to help the car attitude during heavy braking. Gimmicky, anyway.

the sum isnt as gorgeous as its individual parts. but its not terrible once you get past the front. 3 things about the interior:
1) it looks awesome
2) awesome gear shifter
3) awesome key fob shaped like the car

Disgusting. The interior is an import tuner boy's wet dream and just as sophomoric looking in its execution.

Hee hee... If your a bug fanatic, you'll love this car. That interior though is definitely worthy of the huge price[ it will be]!

I hope some "real world" shots will flatter this car. As-is, I am profoundly disappointed. It's lost the eccentricity that set the Zonda apart, without gaining any of the svelteness or elegance of its more traditional rivals. So it just looks awkward, from every angle, and some of the exterior details are downright cringe-worthy. The interior is still dazzling, though.

In terms of boutique supercar manufacturers, Pagani always enjoyed a kind of preeminence, but this car doesn't really seem to raise the bar stylistically. I much prefer, for example, the Zenvo ST1.

Oh god, give me the Zonda. PLEASE

How could someone who designed the Zonda design this? It looks like the Zonda with edema.

01-26-2011, 03:52 AM
whatever color that is they took the shots in (beige? I guess?) its not flattering. would probably look better in a darker color or even just unpainted carbon fiber. In its price range you can probably just request they dont paint the car lol

With a lot more of the higher-res shots of more angles and details being released, interior and exterior, I'm impressed with this machine more and more, and the beauty is that it's to be offered in the USDM, too!

Reppu

OK, so more or less we all agree in our disapointment. The only really good think about this car (style-wise), is it's steampunk interior. That gear selector arrangement is mad!

Reppu

Some new bits of info: 700bhp confirmed, weight figures, and active aerodynamics. It has another pair of flappy spoilers at the front, i didn't notice that at first.

Thank God that lower air dam isn't as noticable from a higher viewing angle:

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2011/01/09-pagani-huayra.jpg

I'm still disappointed though. It's not nearly as well thought through an exterior design as the Zonda. The front is horrid, the tail-lights are an afterthought it seems, and the rear, especially the exhaust is not nearly as memorable as the Zonda's. But that interior is awesome. I wonder how it would look with brass instead of aluminum detailing. Even more steam-punk?

Yeah, that's certainly the best view of it. I hate those stupid mirrors. They're mounted so awkwardly; it looks terrible from every angle.

If choosing between this and a Zonda, I think we can all agree Zonda is miles better looking.

to be honest zonda did look kinda awkward when it first came out.

I'll wait for the huayra spyder. hopefully it will be better.

The Zonda still looks awkward and this technicolor yawn is miles worse which by comparison makes the Zonda look good

This thing, by comparison, is as ponderous to behold as it will be for most people to say (prepare to see magazine parentheticals explaining it "WHY-ra").

As predicted, from CNN (http://money.cnn.com/2011/02/16/autos/italian_supercar_pagani_huayra/index.htm?hpt=T2):

The Huayra, pronounced "why-rah," is named after the ancient Andean wind god Aymara Huayra Tata.

apparently the NHTSA is refusing to waive airbag requirements for the car, which could deal a huge blow to Pagani's plans to sell the car in the US. That would royally suck, even though I'll never get to see the car anyway

Whoa, so this car doesn't have airbags? This is a road car right (i.e. street legal)? If so, then it should at least have dual airbags.

Come on, for anyone buying a car that costs hundreds and thousands, you would expect those as standard. This isn't the 20th century anymore. There is simply no excuse for any road car (in this day and age) to not have an airbag at all http://carspyshots.net/images/icons/icon13.gif

These days you need to run with the big boys or go home. I've never understood the attraction of a Pagani. Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche all perform as well, all look better, and have gobs more money to better engineer and test their vehicles before throwing them on the road.

Have you ever seen a Pagani in person? None of the brands you mentioned offer such an incredible attention to detail or tailor their car to the customer's needs. I think the only one that comes close might be Bugatti. Each Pagani is completely bespoke, whereas only a handful of Porsches, Lamborghinis or Ferraris are.

I never said it didnt have airbags...just that it doesnt meet US airbag standards/regulations.
Under your logic if I replaced every word with "wheels", for example, you would be saying "there is simply no excuse for any road car (in this day and age) to not have wheels at all"

I have seen a Zonda in person and found it disturbingly "velvet furniture in a brothel in Vegas" repellant. Just because a buyer can customize to the point of being idiosyncratic does not mean that's a good thing. A Pagani is just fussy for the sake of being fussy. A Lamborghini Gallardo (have not drooled on an Aventador yet) is infinitely more coherent but is hardly a Camry-like assembly line product. You can do a lot of bespoking (sic) on a Lamborghini and not have to put up with hideous styling.

If it's your cup of meat fine, but I doubt Lamborghini and Ferrari lose a second of sleep over anything Pagani does.

They aren't designed to be 'pretty' ;) They're designed to look how they look (IMO) - like a radical car a 12 year old kid would scribble on his maths book - the whole point of a hypercar!

Perhaps you lot have lost your inner child???

I sincerely doubt that such cars are designed to awe 12 year kids... their design have only one single purpose, and it is not beauty or awe... it's purpose is called efficiency! and that, in total, is their whole point ;)!

that's of coarse, is down to the "personal taste" category but not that I don't agree with you... I also don't find Paganis interiors appealing... yet, I don't believe that I would care, once I would set one in motion ;)

A Lamborghini Gallardo (have not drooled on an Aventador yet) is infinitely more coherent but is hardly a Camry-like assembly line product. You can do a lot of bespoking (sic) on a Lamborghini and not have to put up with hideous styling.

true... but on the other hand, it's whole production process isn't that far from Camry-like one too... frankly, it's closer to it than to Paganis

If it's your cup of meat fine, but I doubt Lamborghini and Ferrari lose a second of sleep over anything Pagani does.
true again... but not because of the reasons you think of...
the real reasons are scale/type of production and the fact that in their concept, Pagani cars are closer to Le Mans Sports prototype racers (like Audi R18 or Pug 908 -please, disregard the fact that those two are diesels, I'm talking of form and function-:P), than to the "ordinary" cars! while Lamborghini&Ferrari cars are by their concept just "ordinary" cars that go fast (not meant in diminishing way to their excellence&performance)...

I like the look of the red/carbon one better than the all one colour pale gold one, trying not to call it two tone, but I like it (I also like the Ferrari 458 with the black roof for similar reasons).

I read the article again:
http://www.worldcarfans.com/111080935571/pagani-huayra-fails-to-make-us-homologation

If this vehicle can't make it into the US because of their inability to install an airbag, then it's their fault and they have to deal with the consequences of that.

No one else to blame but themselves. :)

It would be supremely ironic if Pagani made the Huayra that ugly just to meet US crash regs and then couldn't sell it here because it doesn't have multi-stage airbags.

against the wall
08-10-2011, 05:43 PM
Crisis somewhat averted. Theyre apparently going to fix it but it wont be on sale here until 2013 now.

My opinion on the Huayra's looks: I'm holding out hope. The original C12 was not a pretty car either, but it gradually got better looking with each new more-radical-than-the-previous trim level
