Pagani releases video clip of fully restored Huayra Pearl

Article by Christian A., on March 17, 2017

To hell and back. Sometime in July 2016, a drunk driver in Paris ran into a beautiful Pagani Huayra Pearl and caused a total wreck. This was one of the worst tragedies that have ever occurred in the world of supercars. There was a brief moment of odd silence. And teardrops. But the aftermath of this event brings about new a perspective, mainly from the man behind the wheel, the drunk driver and the restoration engineers.

Barely a year after the incident Paris, Horacio Pagani, founder and CEO of Pagani Automobili was able to work his magic on the wrecked car and brought it back to life. With the help of his people, the Pagani Huayra Pearl is not only back to its original form but it has also received some upgrades. Yes, it reincarnated into an even more beautiful Huayra Pearl with Benny Caiola elements to boot. The restored supercar now bears certain characteristics from the latest Huayra BC, the Zonda R and the Zonda S all at the same time. Indeed, Pagani has combined art, science and technology with its form and function.

To highlight this, Pagani released a video clip of the fully resurrected Huayra Pearl--- all bright and sparkly. Do take note that this 2-minute clip doesn’t depict the unspoken story of what the almost-dead Huayra Pearl had gone through in the last several months. Of course, the hours spent in putting it back in shape must have been grueling.

The video nonetheless provides beautiful close-up shots and slow motion details of the fully rebuilt (and tweaked) Pagani Huayra Pearl. With as much 739 hp and 2,685lbs curb weight, it now also comes with the next generation 7-speed manual gearbox and newly updated suspension.

The finishing touches are more than impressive. The overhaul has instead brought a new look, judging from the Huayra Pearl’s blue carbon finish, carbon fiber weave, roof scoop and split rear spoiler. The roof scoop for one is similar to a Zonda Cinque while the split rear spoiler is inspired by the original Zonda.

Looking back, it is unclear what actually happened during the crash. There were mixed reports and speculations on the issue and there were no videos to prove otherwise. It even came to a point where the driver of the Pagani lost control of the wheels. But from the pictures that emerged on the Internet (shortly after the accident), we never could have guessed that it will look this PERFECT. We guess that’s the whole point of the new video clip.
