It’s hard to believe, but it has almost been a decade since Pagani unveiled its latest supercar model, the Pagani Huayra. We’ve known for a while now that the Modenese supercar maker is working on the hotter Huayra R, but Pagani has just posted a teaser video on its Twitter account suggesting that there might be something else in the works too.
Details are scarce from the video, but we do know that the new model will be somewhat aerospace-inspired. The video begins with a shot of a pilot tube, used on aeroplanes to determine the air speed, and reads “Caution Airflow Sensor Handle With Care” underneath it.
The video then jumps into what seems like an interior shot, with a close up on an air speed indicator with the dials measured in knots, while a digital display shows the Mach number (speed of sound). The read-out jumps from Mach 0.04 (49 km/h) to Mach 0.12 (147 km/h) in approximately three seconds.
Other than that, there really isn’t much else to go on about in the video, aside from a save-the-date for December 17th. Pagani’s cryptic tweet said that it will “celebrate air speed” tomorrow, adding “Stay with us and hold on tight!”
While Pagani remains tight-lipped, recent rumours on the Huayra R seem to trend towards the use of a naturally-aspirated engine that revs past 9,500 rpm and makes in excess of 900 hp. The engine noise audible in the video seems to suggest a forced-induction set-up, so it’s either the rumour mill is wrong (which can – and have happened), or we’re going to be seeing a new Pagani supercar tomorrow.
The “all-out” Huayra variant was also supposed to be unveiled on November 12, but the launch has supposedly been pushed back to the next month. Yet on the other hand, rumours also suggested that the Huayra’s replacement won’t be here until at least March of next year.
So yes, your guess is as good as ours when it comes to Pagani’s announcement tomorrow, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Either way, it’s nice to have you back in the spotlight, Pagani.
