Very few announcements come out of San Cesario sul Panaro, home of Pagani Automobili. That's understandable. Pagani is a small 'Boutique car manufacturer' with lofty goals. However, one thing you can count on when the good folks at Pagani have something to say is that it will catch your attention.

With such an exclusive club, finding ways to impress members is always a challenge since these ladies and gentlemen are not easily impressed. After all, many of them already have some of the best cars on the planet in their collection.

The Huayra R Evo, while still possessing the Huayra DNA, aims to elevate the experience of Pagani owners who participate in the Arte in Pista program. Introduced in 2021 along with the Huayra R, the program offers Pagani owners an opportunity to participate in non-competitive track events at various FIA-certified race tracks facilitated by a team from Pagani, which includes engineers, mechanics, professional racing drivers, and a technical director. Track days can’t get much better than this.

Engine and Transmission

Beyond the enhanced engine, the intake manifold has been optimized with a new design and camshafts to improve the aspiration process. The exhaust system has also been upgraded to boast performance and improve the sound. The transmission is handled by a six-speed sequential gearbox mated with a 3-sintered disc racing clutch to offer shift precision and speed.

Aerodynamics and Braking

Track-focused car designers have to pay attention to aerodynamics so it's no surprise that the Huayra R Evo's elongated body, central fin, and massive rear wing offer a 21% increase in aerodynamic efficiency and a 45% increase in downforce. The open-top design also increases front and rear vertical load, contributing an additional 5% to total downforce. All this without compromising the aesthetics synonymous with the brand.

The car's chassis comes with a safety cage and seat/headrest structures built with advanced composite materials, including Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax. The interior is equipped with a six-point harness, and the seats are finished with fireproof material and padding to ensure a good driving position. Following Leonardo da Vinci's ‘Art and Science’ design philosophy, elements of the cockpit offer great frontal visibility and elegance that isn’t common with track cars.

Every track car needs an excellent braking system, and the Huayra Evo R isn’t an exception. It comes with new CCM-R carbon-ceramic discs paired with racing pads that give the car excellent braking power. The enhancement to the system also improves the stability and durability of the disc.

The car is equipped with new Pirelli P Zero slick tires with increased tread width to improve performance. Designed in collaboration with Pirelli Motorsport to ensure optimal grip, the front tires are 280/680 R19, while the rear tires are 345/725, available in wet and dry configurations.

The Huayra R Evo's upgrades make it a worthy addition to the Arte in Pista program. Pricing is yet to be announced, but if you have to have one, you know the number to call. We look forward to seeing what it can do on the race track.
