Up Close and Personal with 2016's Most Badass Supercar

By: Matthew Biehl|November 26, 2015



Shearling and turtlenecks are both having a moment, and it’s time you embraced them both. Avoid the expected by choosing a deep navy blue shearling coat instead of brown or beige, and keep it tonal with a navy turtleneck underneath.

Introducing the 2016 Pagani Huayra. The low and lean profile is immediately recognizable, and the body is made of carbon fiber. The design incorporates active aeordynamics — the front suspension can raise or lower in tandem with adjustments to four flaps placed at the front and the rear of the car to reduce drag.

A three piece suit feels modern instead of stuffy when you pick one in a slim cut. And no need to bring your own bag on your travels, Pagani has you covered with a leather set that matches the interior of the car.

Wool three-piece suit ($1,080), cotton shirt ($120), and silk tie ($95) by Reiss; leather monk strap shoes ($695) by BOSS.

The well-appointed interior is a balance of soft leather, shiny chrome and textured carbon fiber. Music blasts through a 9-speaker Sonus faber audio system with a 1,200 W power output, though the growl of the engine is sweeter than any track we can think of.

Ban boring, black overcoats and go for one with personality. A pattern, like this slightly distorted red check is way fresher, and has the added bonus of echoing the glowing red tailights of the Huayra.

While this is a car that will ultimately feel most at home zipping around a track, that doesn’t mean they skipped on the amenities. The seats are will keep you in place going around sharp corners, but are comfortable enough for longer drives. And hidden behind each chair is a custom suit bag for that quick change when you arrive.

A traditional trench isn’t going to cut it when standing next to the Huayra — choose a substational one in wool with prominent hardware and leather details to stand out.

The rear-mounted engine is a custom developed (and hand built) Mercedes-AMG M158 V12 twin-Turbo with 730 HP and 1000 Nm of torque, paired with a seven-speed sequential gearbox and a single disc clutch. The car is rear-wheel drive and is capable of acceleration speeds of up to 230mph.

Take a cue from the Huarya’s leather-wrapped interior and find a jacket that straddles the same line of buttery soft and badass. Layer it over more classic pieces like a button up and trousers to show you mean business.

Gull-wing doors will never cease to impress, and their inclusion on the Huayra is no exception. Long time tire collaborator Pirelli is called upon again by Pagani, with the company’s massive P Zero line being paired up with the Huayra — a smaller set is used for the front and a larger pair for the rear.
