The Huayra uses a twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG 60 degree V-12 engine. The Huayra's 6.0-litre engine, the M158, produces 700 horsepower and 738 foot pounds of torque. Using Pirelli tires, the Pagani Huayra is capable of 1.66 g of lateral acceleration and achieve speeds of up to 230 mph. The Huayra goes from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds.
The Pagani Huayra uses a seven-speed sequential gearbox and a single disc clutch. The choice not to use a dual-clutch was made because it would lead to an increase in weight of over 154lb, negating the advantage of the dual clutch's faster gear change. As a result, the entire transmission of the Pagani Huayra weighs only 210lbs.
The car is equipped with bespoke Brembo brake calipers, rotors and pads. There are also four independent flaps which can act as air brakes or produce down force depending on the driving situation.
