Pagani Huayra Pearl is the Second Rare Hypercar Annihilated Within One Month

Article by Christian A., on August 6, 2016

This month has seen two of the most heart-breaking scenes in the automotive world; and by heart-breaking we mean limited edition cars in a catastrophic state after a crash. Ouch.

First off this month was the unfortunate crash of one of the seven Koenigsegg One:1s at the Nurburgring. It wouldn’t be a surprise because accidents to tend to happen a lot at the Green Hell but what’s so sad about this unfortunate event is that the car that was seen tumbling, rolling over and crashing into a fence was just one out of the seven of its kind. Yes, the One:1 is a limited edition model which is why it is also understandable why this accident was so upsetting.

There were no reported fatalities which is good news, but the car did receive serious damages. Hopefully, Koenigsegg fixes the lapses on their system. We’re also crossing our fingers that they can still fix the car to look good as new or even better.

Days after the Koenigsegg One:1 accident, another exotic car crash followed suit. This time, at one of the Parisian streets, a one-off Pagani Huayra earned serious damages after crashing into another car. It is unclear as to what really happened but rumours say that it was a case of drunk driving. Apparently, the Huayra was said to have crashed into a car from another lane, one driven by a drunk driver. The rear driver’s side took the full blow of the collision ending with a missing wheel, a ruined rear end and a smashed Formula 1 inspired exhaust. Its left rear end now looks a lot like a smashed can, the poor thing.

Take note though that what makes every exotic car fan cringe is the fact that this particular Huayra was not something you can immediately order off from Pagani. This particular blue Huayra is the one-off model that most people like to call the Huayra Pearl. A precious vehicle that it is, the Pearl is a commemoration of previous Pagani models – its roof scoop similar to the Zonda R, its split rear wing from the S, and its notable front splitter from the Huayra BC. Add in an upgraded aerodynamic system and this thing becomes a fierce ride for the gods.

Looking at the damage that it has received, the Huayra Pearl will most certainly receive extensive repairs. Fortunately, Pagani is known to take in injured vehicles and restore them back to their former glory or sometimes even an upgraded version for the customer’s satisfaction. We’ll be expecting that this car will rise from the dead; if its owner was able to buy this expensive thing then most likely he/she can get it back into shape in no time. As for now, let’s just hope none of these unfortunate events happen to other limited edition in the near future. Let’s all practice safe driving everyone and please, don’t drink and drive!
