Pagani Huayra – Zonda Successor with Gullwing Doors

Pagani Huayra Pagani Huayra Pagani has finally revealed its much rumoured and much anticipated successor to the Zonda, the Pagani Huayra. Some people are already calling it ugly, but designing a successor to the mighty Zonda is always going to be a tall order. At least it has a good name, as Horacio Pagani’s newest design is named after the Andean god of wind, Aymara Huayra Tata. It’s obvious that the new beast has softer styling and isn’t as aggressive as the Zonda, but the two models still have a lot in common and share a similar silhouette. The newcomer even gets a pair of SLS-like gullwing doors, which introduce the driver to a bespoke interior. The Pagani Huayra will be powered by a Mercedes-Benz AMG-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine capable of churning out over 700 hp and a torque of over 740 pound-feetwhich is enough for a toe-curling 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 230mph. The Huayra’s M158 engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Of course, power is nothing without control, and if our eyes don’t deceive us the car actually can deploy either of its two front or rear spoilers higher or lower to help it carve through the corners.

SSC Ultimate Aero II Aims to Hit 275mph

SSC Ultimate Aero II SSC Ultimate Aero II Bugatti may sit alone at the top of the industry in a number of ways, but it isn’t alone in the top-speed chase. Like NASA had the USSR’s space program, Bugatti has Shelby SuperCars to keep it on its toes. After Bugatti set the top-speed record with the original Veyron, SSC came along with its Ultimate Aero to take away its crown. Bugatti has since responded with the Veyron Super Sport, and now the Americans are fighting back with the new SSC Ultimate Aero II, which aims to reclaim the top slot. For starters, the new Ultimate Aero is powered by a 6.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that pumps out 1,350 horses, all of which will be needed to wring out that 275 mph. Overall, the car weighs just 2,600 pounds, giving it a power-to-weight ratio nearly double that of the Veyron. The question isn’t if this car will break the record… it’s when.

Prices will start at $161,000 for the R8 Spyder 5.2 quattro manual and $170,000 for the R8 Spyder 5.2 quattro R tronic gearbox. Before options, of course. In case you need to be reminded, the 2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 quattro comes with the same V10 engine found in the R8 LMS racecar and the R8 5.2 quattro coupe, which means it can produce 525 HP at 8000 rpm and 391 lb-ft of torque at 6500 rpm. The Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 quattro can hit a top speed of 195 mph and it only takes 4 seconds to reach 60 mph from a stand still. Like the coupe, the Spyder gets all the usual Audi goodness you’d expect: quattro all-wheel-drive, a choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed R tronic gearbox, and, since it’s a convertible, heat-resistant leather that can remain up to 68 degrees cooler than regular leather thanks to a special treament process.
