At the 2021 edition of the Monterey Car Week, Pagani Automobili celebrates 10 years of the Huayra with the world premiere of the key features of Huayra R and an exclusive exhibition of the different models that have marked the evolution of the model from 2011 to date. The first Huayra BC equipped with the brand new Pacchetto Tempesta and one of the 40 Huayra Roadster BCs will also make their debut on The Quail stage and at the Laguna Seca raceway.
After the 2020 edition of Monterey Car Week was cancelled due to the pandemic, the most awaited event in California, dedicated to the world of historic and modern cars, returns from August 5th to 15th: a tradition of unparalleled automotive excellence for over 70 years. On the green hills of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club, on the occasion of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, scheduled on Friday 13th August, Pagani Automobili will display a special selection of the models that have contributed to the brand’s global reputation, starting with the Huayra, the first Pagani car to be globally homologated, that since 2011 has paved the way to the North American market. These ultra-customized Hypercars, equipped with state-of-the-art technical and artisan solutions developed for the most recent projects, are the result of a long research and development process aimed at the continuous updating of Pagani cars. A service that the Pagani Atelier has always offered its customers over the years.
The new Pacchetto Tempesta is undisputed evidence of this know-how. Previewed at the Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, it was specially developed for the Huayra BC and takes advantage of the latest Pagani achievements. The new package allows the Huayra BC’s high-performance platform to be equipped with a range of upgrades and solutions aimed at further unleashing the car’s true racing attitude.
Starting with a new front splitter and dedicated air intake, the Pacchetto Tempesta maximizes aerodynamic efficiency with a new rear wing that features an integrated central fin, six-pipe exhaust system and new suspension, while enhancing comfort and looks with striking interior details and the all-new Soft Driving mode. Thanks to the enhanced optimized powertrain, the Huayra BC with the Pacchetto Tempesta unleashes its new potential with a power increase of over 8% to 827 hp and 1,100 Nm torque.
The key components of the Huayra R project are bound to be under the spotlight at the Monterey Car Week during the world premiere at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club: on display for car enthusiasts there will be the all-new Pagani V12-R naturally aspirated engine, the six-speed sequential gearbox created in collaboration with HWA, and the ultra-light Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 monocoque, specifically designed to provide the driving thrill of a true racing car, in line with the most stringent FIA requirements.
The racing set-up of the monocoque interior is testament to how even the most extreme, cutting-edge, models are fitted with unparalleled craftsmanship and unmistakably refined Pagani details.
On Saturday, August 14, the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Huayra model will continue at the iconic Laguna Seca raceway. A day of pure excitement. At the Monterey Rolex Motorsports event, all Huayra models will be on parade in front of thousands of fans and spectators at two different times of the day and, together with the main Huayra R components, they will be the feature attraction on “Pagani Island”, an area exclusively dedicated to Pagani cars.
Among the supporters of the event, Pirelli, one of Pagani Automobili’s historical partners, was happy to share their enthusiasm for the great achievements. In the words of Pietro Berardi, CEO of the North American Market: “Passion and the continuous desire to go beyond our limits are some of the values that Pagani and Pirelli have shared for over 10 years in one of the most fruitful partnerships in the automotive world. Over the last years with Pagani we have implemented several research and development projects, always focused not on only maximum performance but also new quality and safety standards: from the first record beaten in 2010 with a Pagani Zonda R on Pirelli P Zero at the Nürburgring, the iconic German racing track, to the use of Formula 1 modelling to develop the P Zero Trofeo R tyres for the new Pacchetto Tempesta for the Huayra BC. Last but not least, just a few months ago, on the legendary Spa-Francorchamps racing track, the record set by the Roadster BC equipped with specially developed P Zero Trofeo R tyres set a milestone in the history of “Motor Valley” super cars. With the new slick tyres, specially developed for the Huayra R, the outlook looks much brighter for the years to come!”
