Pagani Automobili S.p.A., an Italian manufacturer of sports cars, has manufactured a new project car. This new project car is called the Pagani Huayra. This all-new supercar has replaced its predecessor the legendary Zonda that was launched in 1999. This newly launched car has got its name from a South American warm wind; the “Why-rah” that represents the climax of 7 years hard work by the 57 employees of the company. The project of the car had been started in 2005.
