Normally we don’t talk about hypercars too much. Usually, we feel that these are just the playthings of the elite super-rich and are so out of reach for normal people, even relatively wealthy ones, that we always felt what’s the point and had little interest in them. We are also somewhat automotive jaded and until recently when looking at hypercars, we usually were not overly impressed with the craftsmanship or the technology used in them. Lately, as technology advances, we have been more impressed with Hypercars and we recently got a chance to get a really close look at a Pagani Huayra BC that was getting PPF treated at Aerowerkz while we were picking up Project GT-R. Look for an article on that soon.
The Pagani Huayra BC is a very extremely limited edition Hypercar, only 40 of them will be made. They originally sold for 3.5 MILLION dollars apiece but now the spaces to get one are being sold for a hyped-up 5.5 million we were told. So I guess if you are a billionaire, and just have to have one to impress your buddies, that’s what it’s going to cost you. The guys at Aerowerkz have got to have some balls tearing into this car to do the PPF install, we were nervous just walking around it, but that’s one of the reasons we chose them to work on Project GT-R. Our GT-R was one of the cheaper cars there so you know they know how to do great work and take great care with their customer’s cars! That being said, let us show you some of what you get for millions of dollars!
The workmanship on the Pagani Huayra BC is impeccable. In the past, some Hypercars we actually somewhat cobbly and kit car-like due to low production numbers and cottage industry handwork, but now with the cost in the millions, you can see that there is high attention to detail in this car. What strikes you first is that the whole car is literally constructed of carbon fiber except for a few chassis and interior parts a la prototypes and higher formula open-wheel cars.
The is the beautiful remote. I think it’s machined from titanium because it has a warm feeling that the low thermal conductivity of titanium gives. It is quite solid and feels baller. It probably costs more than our type of people’s cars! I was afraid to drop it or scratch it.
Like an F1 car, every fastener in the Pagani is a custom bespoke part. Each one is engraved with a serial number and the Pagani logo. Most of the fasteners are made of titanium but some for engineering reasons are made of other alloys. No off-the-shelf grade 10.9 metric fasteners here.
