Pagani Huayra

Nikkor af-s vr 18-105/3.5-5.6


From Wikipedia:


"The Pagani Huayra (pronounced waɪ-rah) is an Italian mid-engined sports car produced by Pagani. The second car produced by Pagani, it succeeds the Pagani Zonda. It will cost £850,000 ($1.4 Million) when it goes on sale in the spring. It is named after Huayra-tata, a South American wind god. It also makes reference to a 1969 Argentine Sports Car, the Huayra Pronello Ford.

Like the Zonda, the Huayra uses a Mercedes-AMG 60° V-12 engine, now fitted with dual turbochargers. This engine, the M158, produces over 700 horsepower and a torque of over 1,000 N·m (740 lb·ft). Its top speed is 410 km/h (255 mph) and it has a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time in less than 3.5 seconds. Using Pirelli tires, the Pagani Huayra is capable of withstanding 1.5g of lateral acceleration at speeds of 230 mph (370 km/h).

Unlike many modern supercars, the Pagani Huayra does not use a dual-clutch gearbox; instead it uses a seven-speed sequential gearbox and a dual-disc clutch. The choice to not use a dual-clutch in oil bath was because it would lead to an increase in weight of over 70 kg (154 lb), negating the advantage of the ability of such transmissions to change gears faster. As a result, the entire transmission of the Pagani Huayra weighs 96 kg."
