First... how do you pronounce the dang thing? Pronounce Huayra as "why-rah" named after a South American wind deity. Unlike Americans, Pagani apparently doesn't use focus groups for naming. World debut was in March last year at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show.
BBR has announced production of two 1:18 replicas for delivery this year. Pagani Huayra in metallic red and Pagani Huayra in light gold. Both will come in a numbered limited edition of 330 worldwide.
Like all BBR high-end issues, these will be precision cast resin, so no openings. All the sizzle is sculptural, not anatomical. So you can't actually see a replica of the giant Mercedes V12 it shares with the AMG Black Series. While it incorporates active aerodynamics, you will not enjoy in miniature operation height changes of the front and independent operation of four flaps at the rear and front of the car.
What you can see is what someone would behold and admire from an adjacent lane on an autostrada.
BBR is also producing for delivery this year a Ferrari F-458 Italia GT3 raced by Valentino Rossi. Yes, that Valentino Rossi who is a 9 time world champion in MotoGP. He is the Michael Schumacher of motorcycles. The Ferrari is being contested in the 2012 Blancpain Endurance Series.
There are two reasons to buy this model. 1) Valentino Rossi. 2) Globally cool "Monster" livery. Oh, and it's a BBR model of the Ferrari F-458 Italia. Which are monstrously collectible.
To ensure you get one of these models, please place your deposited reservation by Friday, July 6th.
