The Pagani Huayra, a successor to the Pagani Zonda, was initially revealed online in a press release on January 25, 2011. It was officially revealed at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The car is named Huayra after the Incan god of wind, Huayra-tata. The engine is a 6.0-litre twin-turbo M158 V12 engine from Mercedes-AMG producing 720 hp (730 PS; 537 kW) and 1,000 N⋅m (740 lb⋅ft) of torque. The Huayra's body is made from carbotanium; a composition of carbon fibre and titanium, thus it is reasonably lightweight. The Huayra has been redesigned from the ground up, but shares many visual qualities with its predecessor. The car can accelerate from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 235 mph (378 km/h). Only 100 units of the Huayra were produced, each costing £1,000,000 without options. The M158 is a 6.0 L (5980 cc) version based on the M275. The engine uses smaller twin scroll type turbos (for reduced turbo-lag), a bespoke Bosch ECU, a modified intercooler configuration, and dry sump lubrication. It produces 730 PS (537 kW; 720 hp) and 1,000 N⋅m (740 lb⋅ft) of torque. AMG builds this engine specifically for Pagani Automobili for use in the Huayra supercar. Later in BC model, M158 makes 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) and 1,100 N⋅m (810 lb⋅ft). The engine mated to a new 7-speed electrohydraulic automated manual gearbox designed and built by XTrac.
