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 (730 PS; 537 kW) and 811 ft·lb (1100 Nm) 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.
