Monterey, Calif. (August 23, 2011) Italian supercar manufacturer Pagani Automobili S.p.A. publicly introduced its all-new supercar, the Huayra, to crowds of automotive enthusiasts during the events leading up to the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, Calif. last week.

Named after Huayra, an ancient God of wind, the Huayra was first publicly seen at Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival 2011 and then again at Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, where hundreds of the most influential car enthusiasts, journalists, educators and industry executives met to see the car up close.

Horacio Pagani, founder and chief designer of Pagani Automobili, was on-hand to answer questions personally. The car boasts a revolutionary design, represents the state-of-the-art mechanics and features a Mercedes-AMG engine with more than 700 horsepower. The demand and enthusiasm about Huayra is great all over the world. The first deliveries for the American market will start in 2013 and will absorbe the production until 2014,. As declared by Horacio Pagani, Pagani Automobili will sell a limited number of cars also in the U.S. market, infact, despite the production increase compared to the Zonda, the small number of cars available in every market will make the object even more exclusive.

2012 Ferrari 458 Spider Revealed

Ferrari has unveiled the 458 Spider, claiming it to be the first series-production, mid-rear-engine car to be equipped with a folding hardtop roof.

Set
to make its public debut at next month’s Frankfurt motor show, the 458
Spider forgoes the traditional fabric hood used by the earlier 430
Spider for a newly developed, Ferrari-patented
hardtop claimed to automatically fold back and stow ahead of the engine
bay in 14 seconds at the press of a dashboard-mounted button.

The
aluminum structure, which Ferrari describes as being fully integrated
into the styling of the 458, is claimed to weigh 55 pounds, less than
the fabric roof arrangement of the 430. It is also said to have been
engineered without compromising aerodynamics or performance–although
the official photographs released by Ferrari only show the 458 Spider
with its roof stowed.
