This is the first image of the upcoming hardcore Pagani Huayra. It make us very happy.

No information – beyond the hashtag #huayrabc – has been released yet. The disguised car in the image provides a few clues, not least that enormous spoiler. The rear diffuser and body side aero appear more aggressive, the stance is lower and the wheels bigger than the standard car, too.

Clearly, this will very much be a track car. Probably not in the same league as the McLaren P1 GTR and Ferrari FXX K, but some way north of the Lamborghini Aventador SV. Inevitably, there will be quite a lot more power from the AMG-sourced 6.0-litre, twin-turbo V12 engine, which produces 730bhp and 811lb/ft of torque as standard.

Apparently, only 20 of these hardcore Huayras will be built, offered exclusively to existing customers. Having launched the car in 2011, Pagani completed the limited run of Huayra road cars in 2015.

Don’t go thinking this will be the end of the Huayra story. The Zonda that preceded it was ostensibly discontinued in 2011, but Pagani still trickles out special editions and one-offs, of varying degrees of lunacy. No doubt Huayra production will continue in a similar vein.

Which we think is very much a good thing. Pagani is our favourite supercar maker, precisely because its cars are deliberately, bloody-mindedly bonkers. With a car as bonkers as the Huayra as a starting point, we can only imagine what sort of feral animals Pagani is going to come up with.
