New Zonda? So last century. :P

Now a bespoke special Huayra ... or Regera ...

 

If a manual is good enough for Lewis Hamilton.....

I turned down the only Huayra BC for Europe a few months ago. Pags not my thing, they all overpriced and old hat.

 

I loved the sheer wow factor of the Zonda, particularly the Cinque. But did the Huayra moved things on? Being forced induction I can see it wouldn't be your pick.

 

Still love Pagani for taking on the mentalist mantle vacated by Lamborghini, but I find myself being more drawn to Koenigsegg and their uniquely Scandinavian lunacy.

I'd hope so, since Porsche are responsible for the new paint and dismantling / rebuild.

Oh! I thought a specialist was doing it. My mistake.

Yes - Porsche GB are doing all the work. They have done an unbelievable job. Tomorrow is the big day. Car will be orange, drivable and ready to put a few livery options on

Loads of pics, vid on my IG but:

It certainly is!

 

Am sure you were pretty glad when the engine fired up again - fingers crossed not too many bits left over on the pallet after reassembly ;) lol!

How many decal options are you choosing from Sam?

 

Is the bonnet stripe shown laid down in vinyl as an option or is that the final, painted version of the bonnet?

apparently that one is painted but it is a mock up.

I'm not quite sure how man we are testing today, I requested 2 but I think my designer has asked for some other options too.

I will fill you all in more later. I am about the leave the office to go and see the car!

Looks lovely Woppum +++

 

Not sure about the side decals though :wacko:

 

Think it looks better without IMO (not that you give a hoot about my opinion! :roflmao: )

Someone stole the glass.

Is the Porsche logo on the rear spoiler so the helicopter police can chase you at 200mph and report back its "orange and, a Porsche"?

I like the paint so much, that I'd have Q car'd it and had it signage free. The diamond cut wheels are going to add to the bling, it's a 1 of 1 for sure.

If car had a name, what would you call it?

Try Svarog:)

(Slavic sun god and spirit of fire, which given the colour and the engineering...)

How much did Ford charge for the paint? ;-)

Seriously, looks great.

I'd have used Hammerite to stop the stone chips.

I have loads of pics on my IG now, have a look

 

I was in Frith Street and Greek Street in Soho last night, starting at 'Be At One'.  Was a great evening, even if my taxi home wasn't as smart sadly!   :grin:

The car is called Wopsy as the plate is W10PSY. I thought if it all went Pete tong it would be a little ironic...

Anyway some pics:

When do you get to actually drive it?   Looks like you are waiting in the photos for the trim pieces.
