      Wonder if they will do a Huayra vs Aventador vs F12 comparison soon...

      The chrome is too much. Almost makes it look tacky. A brushed metal would do wonders, though the dash area is still really "busy"

      It is brushed aluminium.

      Extremely doubtful. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of Porsche 930 Turbos modified with 959 body kits. Even some POrsche dealers were installing 959 body kits back then.

      I read somewhere reliable (although I now forget where) that there are only two Porsche 959s to have been confirmed imported into the USA. One is (was) owned by Bill Gates.

      Actually, thanks to Bill Gates, you can bring them in. Find one for sale, collect the funds to buy, pay for federalization. Done.

      It's the "busy" part that gets me, and could be seriously toned down with a little less color swapping. Swapping the brushed aluminum for a darker metal, or replacing it entirely with the carbon accents that appear elsewhere, would go a LONG way toward cleaning that up.

      This top down view is the best angle of the car. Too bad no one will ever see it.

      I guess it depends; I saw one video where the Pagani guy sounded more like he was pronouncing it with 3 syllables. "Why ruh" is 2; the way I was hearing it was more like Wire-uh, or WHY-er-uh. Of course, with a name like "why, er, uh" it makes it sound like the ultimate name of confusion. Hmm....

      After researching the "WHY RUH" more, it really is a sweet car.

      I have to say, though (and this really goes to show how far car engineering has advanced), the performance specs seem a bit underwhelming in its price category.

      The thing apparently goes 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, with an ~11.2 quarter mile. These are great numbers, but not anymore, and not for a $1m+ car.

      I realize there is far more to this car than accelaration numbers. However, there are a number of sub-$500,000 cars out htere that accelarate significantly faster, not to mention then upcoming hybrid Enzo and hybrid Porsche.

      I will withhold judgment until I see a full magazine review. But perhaps a lightly modified AMG mercedes engine doesn't quite hack it in a $1.0m+ supercar?

      Either way, I love this thing!!!
