Pagani has revealed its successor to the popular Zonda supercar today, the Huayra - named for Aymara Huayra Tata, an ancient South American god of wind.

The Huayra takes more than a few cues from its predecessor, with a complex but aerodynamically-focused exterior, and an extravagant interior with a luxurious old-world look.

Weighing in at 1350kg with a 44:56 rear-biased weight distribution, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0 litre twin-turbo V12 sourced from Mercedes-Benz' AMG division, producing 525kW and a heady 1000Nm of torque.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-disc clutch transmission, weighing just 95kg.

The sprint to 100km/h is covered in just 3.2 seconds (more hardcore versions will undoubtedly arrive), with top speed listed at an astonishing 370km/h.

While not quite in Bugatti Veyron (431km/h) and SSC Ultimate Aero TT (412km/h) territory, the Huayra's top speed puts it in the company of the Koenigsegg CCR (388km/h) and the legendary McLaren F1 (372km/h).

It's worth noting however that the Huayra's listed top speed is direct from the company, while the other figures have been confirmed by Guinness World Records.

Helping the Huayra achieve its blistering top speed is a number of aerodynamic advancements, including a pair of flaps hidden behind the front grille that work together with similar flaps at the rear, adjusted by the ECU to deal with yaw, lateral acceleration, steering angle and throttle position.

In corners, the flaps closest to the inside edge are activated, increasing downforce on the inside wheels and limiting body roll.
