Gratuitous motor porn awaits with the second car to be designed by exclusive automotive boutique car producer Pagani, with the new Pagani Huayra (pronounced wai-rah). The new successor to what many car purists deem pure automotive perfection, the Pagani Zonda, the new Huayra is a mid-engine sports car with an estimated cost of $1.2 million. Named after a South American wind god , and featuring gull-wing doors, one would be forgiven to think that this car could fly, with its Mercedes AMG 60° V-12 engine, fitted with dual turbochargers. The engine itself produces over 700 horsepower and (740 lb ft) of torque. The Huayra’s top speed is 230 mph and can hit 0-62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. More impressively, the Huayra can pull 1.5 G in corners, in spite of its 3,000 pound curb weight. Up until now, the Pagani was unattainable in the United States because of failed emission and safety testing, but it looks like the Pagani Huayra will finally touch ground sometime in 2013.
