The Huayra R Evo is Pagani's new open-top hypercar that clearly draws inspiration from thoroughbred builds from IndyCar and iconic Le Mans prototypes.
In 2021, Pagani presented the Huayra R for the first time (read more here), a thoroughbred track-day car with a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder V-engine, which was manufactured in 30 collectible copies, with each costing just over 2.6 million euros.
Today, the always active Italian house led by the restless spirit of Horacio Pagani, presents the Wind R Evoan even more hardcore version of the Huayra R, in open-top version and inspiration from his racing IndyCar and its iconic prototypes Le Mans.
Italian jewelry from Italy gets a move from a upgraded version of the Huayra R's naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine called the V12 R-Evo. Shows 900 horsepower and torque 770 Nmthanks to the new design of the intake manifold, the new camshafts and a specially designed breathing and exhaust system.
The engine, which bears the signature of engineers from Affalterbach, Germany, it is directly connected to the central monocoque of the structure, forming a single structural element capable of supporting the transmission system and molybdenum alloy steel subframes. For the occasion, in fact, its rotation range has increased from 9,000 to 9,200 rpm
Between this engine and the rear wheels is a asynchronous, serial-type 6-speed gearbox which weighs just 80 kg, cooperating with a clutch consisting of three metal discs that guarantee lightning-fast changes and reliability in “hard” use.
Pagani Huayra R Evo has top speed 350 km/h, weighs barely 1,060 kg and “steps” on slick Pirelli P Zero tires with dimensions 280/680 R19 at the front and 345/725 R20 at the rear. The Italian “beast” stops thanks to the braking power provided by the ceramic brakes with 6 piston calipers front and back and their discs 410 and 390 mm respectively.
Excellent but also… a lot of work has been done in the design of the “body” of the Huayra R Evo, with the characteristic long-tail tail to contribute to 45% increase in vertically generated forcewhile improved by 21% it is the aerodynamic performance without increasing aerodynamic drag.
