Who needs stuff like a house when you can buy this instead?
The Pagani Huayra is expected to cease production in the near future. Before that happens, a track-focused variant, called the Huayra R, will debut this January. Consider it to be a parting gift for nearly a decade of greatness. The Huayra had big shoes to fill when it debuted in 2012 because its Zonda predecessor had achieved icon status and the Huayra is expected to do the same, if it hasn't already. Like many automotive icons, Huayra production has been extremely limited. So far, only 100 Huayras have been made and it's doubtful any more road-going examples are planned. After all, Pagani is planning to launch an all-new hypercar in the relatively near future.
But for those who still desire Huayra ownership and have missed out so far, here's another chance, as an ultra-rare Huara Roadster has come up for sale.
Set to cross the auction block this weekend at the Mecum Auction in Dallas, Texas is this 2017 Huayra Roadster, the 31st Huayra ever built. Like all Huayras, power comes from an AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 producing 730 horsepower. Power goes to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automated manual gearbox. With a 0-60 mph time of 3 seconds flat and a top speed of 238 mph, the next owner's biggest problem will likely be speeding tickets.
This example is finished in a lovely Bianco Benny exterior with black accents paired with a Rojo interior with diamond-stitching. Now, it's not extremely unusual to see a Huayra come up for auction/sale, but not all have a mileage count as low as this one.
It's been driven a mere 150 miles since the day it rolled off the factory floor near Modena, Italy. It's been in no accidents, has zero damage, and had its annual service completed earlier this month. The sale also includes a complete matching luggage set and automatic membership in a highly exclusive club. The price? If you have to ask then you definitely shouldn't even consider placing a bid, but we'll go into detail anyway.
A brand-new Huayra Roadster, depending on customization options, would set you back over $2 million, and that's being fairly conservative. Mecum estimates this example will sell anywhere from $2.3 million to $2.5 million. There should be zero doubt a new owner will step up and gladly write a big fat check.
