Pagani Huayra And Bugatti Chiron Sold For Bitcoin In California 12

Posted by Brad Anderson in Bugatti, Bugatti Chiron, Pagani, Pagani Huayra, Reports on 01 12th, 2018


An exotic car dealership in California has sold both a Pagani Huayra and Bugatti Chiron via Bitcoin.

Taking to Instagram, Pagani Newport Beach revealed that the two hypercars were sold for Bitcoin in transactions worth more than $6 million combined.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about vehicles trading hands for Bitcoin. In fact, we have come across a number of listings for used cars, especially exotics, looking for new homes in exchange for Bitcoin.

As for the cars in question, the Chiron is an all-black example outfitted with black and grey leather throughout the interior. By comparison, the one-off Pagani Huayra sold is a lot more over-the-top, thanks predominantly to its carbon fiber exterior panels, silver paint, and bright red accents. Inside, it is covered in black and red leather. If we had to choose, we’d opt for the Italian.

Although Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, are all the rage nowadays, we’re not so sure how smart it is selling vehicles for Bitcoin. Unlike traditional currencies, which are usually fairly stable in price, cryptocurrencies are notorious for unexpectedly and violently fluctuating in price. If the Bitcoin market crashes next week, the $6 million worth of Bitcoin used to purchase these two hypercars could be worth half that sum.

Seven Impossible Car Mashups That’ll Make Or Break Your Day 17

Some car designs just don’t mix, and trying to force them together could make you lose your appetite. You’ve been warned.

First, worry not, because your eyes are not deceiving you. You truly are looking at seven of the most “unholy” car mashups we’ve ever seen. The only thing missing is for these cars to suddenly start speaking Latin and laugh maliciously.

But before we go looking for a priest, let’s run through each of these images, courtesy of Click Mechanic, and at least try to make some sense of what we’re looking at.

Let’s start with the Batmobile wannabe, you know, because at least it looks drivable.

#1 BMW i8 + Dodge Charger

The classic Charger and the modern BMW i8 couldn’t be more different. One is a plug-in hybrid with sporty features and futuristic looks, while the other is a gas guzzling muscle car that will mostly drive sideways if you don’t stay off the throttle.

Put them together and you might get something like this thing, which features a massive V8 with a blower, chrome bits on the wheel arches and a NASCAR-style spoiler at the rear. It’s weird, but at least it looks like it would be fun to drive, right?

#2 Bugatti Chiron + VW Beetle

This one makes sense from a branding standpoint, since VW owns Bugatti. You’ve got the all-new Chiron hypercar in one corner, and the classic VW Beetle in the other.

Make sure to take it all in, from the heavy chrome bumpers and alloys to the Beetle fenders. Overall though, you might as well put Dick Dastardly and Muttley in this car and call it a day, because it’s really wacky.

#3 Pagani Huayra + Chevy Camaro

Here’s another one you might be tempted to at least drive, since it’s comprised of a Pagani Huayra and a classic Chevrolet Camaro. It’s rugged American muscle meets crafty Italian engineering.

It’s got headlights from both vehicles, classic wheels, plus another NASCAR-style spoiler, just like on the i8 Charger. We’re not so sure about its aerodynamic properties though.

#4 Nissan GT-R + Nissan Juke

Another family affair, this time from Japanese automaker Nissan. It actually looks kind of cute, if we’re being honest, but don’t let that stop you from letting us know how much you hate it, if that’s the case.

Besides, if you’re a GT-R fan, the last thing you want is for it to be associated with something like the Juke, an urban-oriented crossover that never even got to break the Internet.

#5 Ford GT + Ford Raptor

If somebody ever managed to actually build this car, the waiting list on it might actually match that of the regular Ford GT. The mashup shows a very aggressive vehicle, one that should have no problem with going off-road, while able to win plenty of straight line races as well.

In a way, it’s the best of both worlds. The only thing missing is room for more passengers and luggage.

#6 Lamborghini Aventador + Lamborghini Tractor

If you want to take Lamborghini back to its early beginnings, you could then try to build something like this Aventador-inspired tractor and it probably wouldn’t be all that hard either.

All you need is the tractor, plus an Aventador front fascia, which doesn’t even have to come from the real car – some people can just make those for themselves. As for this one, it also features a massive winch and a connector for fitting it with a large plow.

#7 Ferrari LaFerrari + Fiat Multipla

This is a really fascinating combination, in the sense that on one hand you’ve got arguably the most beautiful car ever built in the LaFerrari, and then you’ve got one that many consider the ugliest car ever, in the Fiat Multipla. We can call this either the LaFiat or the LaMultipla, you decide.

The contrast between the two speaks volumes, and in a weird way, they kind of match, since they’re both Italian…but let’s not kid ourselves. Consider the hypercar properly insulted.

Pagani Creates One-Off Huayra Lampo With Fiat Turbina Theme 14
Dec
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Garage Italia Customs, new cars, Pagani, Pagani Huayra on 12 14th, 2017


Pagani has joined forces with Lapo Elkann to create yet another marvelous one-off Huayra – the Lampo, which isn’t Italian for…Lambo, but for ‘Lightning’.

Made for Garage Italia Customs and inspired by the Fiat Turbina Concept from 1954 that had a bespoke two-tone red and white livery together with turbine power, the supercar sports a similar paint scheme. No turbine power here, though.

Beneath the beautiful red shade, the carbon fiber bodywork is noticeable, and that’s not all, because the Pagani Huayra Lampo has welcomed additional parts made from the same lightweight material that were borrowed from the Huayra BC. It also has larger air intakes at the front.

Elsewhere, we notice the Italian flags applied to different parts of the exterior, including the brake calipers, whereas the bespoke interior has chequered brown leather that’s said to have been hand-crafted by an artisan in Turin. The cabin also features exposed aluminum anodized in bronze and carbon fiber trim that keep the theme going.

No upgrades were applied to the Mercedes-AMG-developed 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, as it’s still good for 730hp and 1,000Nm (738lb-ft) of torque, although we admit that it would have been a little cooler with the 790hp unit that powers the Huayra BC.

Who Ever Said The Pagani Huayra Is Tame? 8

Posted by Brad Anderson in Pagani, Pagani Huayra, Pagani Videos, video on 12 8th, 2017


Although the Pagani Huayra uses a twin-turbocharged V12 engine and its predecessor, the Zonda, came with a naturally-aspirated V12, the Huayra is still unabashedly crazy.

In fact, the range-topping model, the Huayra BC, delivers a frankly absurd 789 hp and 810 lb-ft of torque. For a car that weighs just 1,350 kg (2,976 lbs), that is more than enough to send the Huayra BC into the stratosphere. Don’t worry about numbers on a spec sheet, the BC feels otherworldly.

The United States is easily Pagani’s biggest market and that means there are heaps of BCs nationwide. One of them is owned by prolific car collector Dan_am_i on Instagram, a man who also owns a Koenigsegg Agera RS, Lamborghini Centenario, LaFerrari, Pagani Zonda Cinque, Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, and a Pagani Zonda Tricolore.

Dan recently took to social media to share a video of his BC and while only brief, it helps to exemplify the car’s mean streak as it spits flames like a machine gun.

Who ever said turbocharged cars don’t sound nice?

Pagani Huayra BC Indulges In A Little Drifting While Leaving Car Meeting 5

Whether he was showing off or just having a little fun (or both), the owner of this Pagani Huayra BC was filmed leaving the Cars and Chronos meeting in LA like a boss. The driver did slide that sexy tail out a couple of times – and who can blame him, with all that power at his disposal.

Named after Benny Caiola (BC), one of Horacio Pagani’s friends and also his first customer, the BC is is an even more hardcore version of the already extreme Huayra and was manufactured in a limited run of just 20 units, each priced at a cool $2.5 million.

The BC comes with a number of weight improvements over the regular Huayra, with matte carbon fiber used throughout the cabin, new sports seats and an upgraded 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12.

The V12 is mated to a new 7-speed automated manual transmission to deliver 789hp and 810lb-ft (1,098Nm) of torque to the rear axle. Stopping power is improved as well, courtesy of the 380mm carbon ceramic brake discs with six-piston calipers at the front and four at the rear.

There’s Something Delightfully Incongruous About A Base-Spec Exotic 26

Automakers are doing their best these days to make even their most basic, budget-friendly vehicles look polished. But there are some you can expect to see in base spec – mostly for professional use and deployment as part of large fleets.

We’re talking about work-a-day vehicles like the Ram Tradesman, for example, or the Opel Corsavan. But an exotic supercar? Perish the thought!

That’s precisely the delightful incongruity we’ve been seeing these lately, albeit only in the digital realm: six-figure supercars and even seven-figure hypercars stripped of their painted bumpers and flashy wheels, fitted instead with matte black noses and tails and plain old steel rims.

Of course, even if you could, ordering one that way wouldn’t put much of a dent in the purchase price of something as expensive as a Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Agera, Pagani Huayra, or even something as relatively “affordable” as a Lamborghini Huracan, Aston Martin DB11, or Mercedes-AMG GT.

It’d ruin the handling too, and make your big-buck exotic look like it were in the middle of being repaired. So we’re thankful that none of these exist in reality, but it’s still funny to look at these curious renderings from Nikita Aksyonov and chuckle at the “what if” of it all.

White, Red, And Carbon Pagani Huayra Is A Petrolhead’s Wet Dream 18

Posted by Brad Anderson in Galleries, Pagani, Pagani Huayra, used cars on 11 18th, 2017


If you’re in the market for a used Pagani Huayra, the United States is the place to look. The U.S. is easily Pagani’s largest market and there are dozens of Huayras on the streets, a dramatic turnaround from the days of the Zonda was not even being sold in the States.

We’ve come across a number of used Huayras in recent months and this one, for sale from Pagani Newport Beach, is one of the most eye-catching.

The exterior of the Italian hypercar is a mixture of white paint, gloss carbon fiber and bright red accents, really making it look like a road-going Transformer. As with any other Huayra, the exterior is beautifully matched by an equally sexy interior covered in a mixture of red leather, carbon fiber and aluminum.

Ordering a Huayra from the factory is a lengthy process and it can easily take over two years for delivery. However, with just 397 miles (639 km) on the clock, this Huayra is as good as new and can be added to a millionaire’s collection in just a matter of days.

Stunning Red And Carbon Fiber Pagani Huayra For Sale In Connecticut 7
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Galleries, Pagani, Pagani Huayra, used cars on 11 7th, 2017


A head-turning Pagani Huayra has appeared for sale from Miller Motorcars in Connecticut.

This particular Huayra is number 57 and believed to be one of the first units that reached U.S. soil. It can be easily distinguished from all other cars to leave Pagani’s factory thanks to the combination of red accents and a gloss carbon fiber body.

Recently, the Italian hypercar was fitted with the optional Pacchetto Tempesta package meaning it adopts a revised front splitter, new wheels, a more aggressive rear diffuser and a tweaked exhaust system. It may not be as over-the-top as some Huayra BC models, but it isn’t far off.

Despite being three years old, the car has travelled a mere 636 miles. Consequently, the interior looks brand new and is a beautiful combination of red and black leather, black alcantara, brushed aluminum and gloss carbon fiber.

No asking price has been made public but interested buyers should have at least a couple of million dollars at the ready.
