Remember that one-off Pagani Huayra that got smashed to bits in the summer of 2016? Following a rear-end collision in Paris, the one-of-a-kind hypercar was badly damaged. Most of us thought it was totaled, but Pagani has fully rebuilt it. They’ve shared a video of the completely restored and fully-working Pearl without sharing the full story. The driver was unscathed, thankfully. Refined Marques, the people who helped build it, have released an official statement with some details, previously hidden from the public.
Pagani Pearl – 0 to 62 mph in 2.2 Seconds
Let’s start with what you want to hear: the stats. The Pearl can apparently sprint to 62 mph in just 2.2 seconds, and it will touch 187 mph from a standstill in 14 seconds flat. How is it possible, you ask? Well, it’s all courtesy of that AMG-sourced engine, of course. No one’s accusing the stock Huayra of being slow or underpowered. In fact, with 789 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, it’s the complete opposite of that – scary, frightening, and just plain fast. The mad boffins at Pagani have had a little play with the large V12, however, and managed to extract an unbelievable 1,350 horsepower. You read that right.
It’s a Huayra with more power than a Koenigsegg One:1. Needless to say, it’s the fastest Pagani for that straight line run, though probably not the corners since that title goes to the Zonda R. For now, Pagani is keeping the rest of the details a secret, but we do know that it’s based on the Huayra BC and utilizes a carbon-titanium monocoque chassis and a new 7-speed AMT automated manual from Xtrac.
Just imagine cruising down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, in a Pagani Pearl. It would make for one hell of a head turner, wouldn’t it?
