We know that Pagani is working on a hotter version of its Huayra supercar called Nurburgring Edition, but we didn’t expect to see this. A lucky guy just spotted Horacio Pagani a.k.a. the master behind the Pagani brand, driving a McLaren P1 MSO. We don’t believe that Mr. Pagani just bought the McLaren P1 MSO, but we do believe he is testing the car in order to prepare the Huayra Nurburgring Edition.
For those who don’t know, the Pagani Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that develops 720 hp and 1000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. Bolted to a 7-speed transmission, the engine pushes the Huayra from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, while top speed is 370 km/h (230 mph).
Meanwhile, the McLaren P1 uses a twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, but also an electric motor with 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.
With a total output of 916 hp and a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels, the McLaren P1 zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in under 17 seconds. Top speed is limted at 217 mph or 350 km/h. [source: Keno Zache | photography]
