Pagani Huayra
Pagani Huayra
Base price: $1.1 million

The Huayra, pronounced "why-rah," is named after the ancient Andean wind god Aymara Huayra Tata. It's powered by a 6-liter twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine produced by the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz. Much of the car's structure, particularly the area around the driver, is made from a strong, lightweight and very expensive material called carbon-titanium

Based in Italy, Pagani's entry into the United States was delayed by a regulatory squabble over the car's airbags. That issue has been worked out and cars will be delivered here next year, said Brett David of Prestige Imports, which sells Paganis in South Florida.
