The Pagani Huayra is a rear mid-engined hypercar that uses a seven-speed sequential transmission delivering power to the rear wheels. The Huayra uses a twin-turbo V12 engine developed by Mercedes-AMG and derived from the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series's M275 AMG engine. Displacing 6.0L (5,980 cc), the Huayra's M158 V12 produces 720 hp (537 kW) and 811 ft·lb (1100 N·m) of torque. It has been designed at the request of Pagani to reduce turbo lag and improve response, realized with smaller turbos, a different intercooler configuration, and re-programmed ECU settings.
The Huayra has a 0-60 acceleration time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h). Using Pirelli tires, it can withstand 1.66 g of lateral acceleration at speeds of up to 230 mph (370 km/h).
The Huayra also incorporates active aerodynamics, capable of altering front height from the ground and independently operating two pairs of flaps placed at the rear and front.
The Huayra has a curb weight of 3741 lb (1697 kg) and a dry weight of 2976 lb (1350 kg), giving it a minimum power-to-weight ratio of 424 hp per tonne and a maximum power-to-weight ratio of 533 hp per tonne.
The Pagani Huayra is a Tier 7 car and is a prize of Career Cup 9. It costs 320,000 Cash. It is faster than the RUF RT 12 S, Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, and Ferrari 288 GTO, but still not the best, as the Ferrari FXX Evo and RUF CTR 3 have faster nitro speed.
The Huayra is a low-end Class S car, with a starting rank of 1509, a MAX rank of 1623, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1701. Due to gaining little from being upgraded, the Huayra receives a modest Tuning Kit boost of +29. The Huayra's rivals are the Kepler Motion, ONUK Sazan LM, and Mazzanti Evantra.
The Pagani Huayra is a nitro-focused car, with decent acceleration and efficiency; it has a unique combination of 7/11/14.5. Keeping true to real life Paganis, the in-game Huayra also has superb handling. Due to being a nitro-focused car, the Huayra's top speed is lacking when compared to other similarly-ranked cars. Another disadvantage of the Huayra is that it has a speed multiplier of 94.32%.
In summary, the Pagani Huayra is not recommended for either Events or Multiplayer, although the Huayra appears in a handful of collections and is also required for completion of its Season 4 race in Career Mode.
The Pagani Huayra was added in Asphalt Nitro Update 4. While having virtually identical performance to its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition, it is now a Class A car and costs 315,000 to purchase.
