Design Line and Interior
The Huayra R 2016 is going to get the same external features as the coupe, but not everything is expected to be the same. It will have its own chassis, sub-casings, and an aerodynamic kit. The upcoming model is going to be more frivolous that the current coupe by 110 pounds, summarizing it to a total of 2860 pounds. However, a giant aero wing, bigger exhaust outlets, a new front splitter, and a novel rear splitter are highly probable.
The interior remains the same. It would come with same interior features as the coupe version. The cockpit will suffer very minimal changes, such as unlimited head space for taller passengers. The technology has been evolving a ton this year. Every upcoming car is now packed with plenty of new and innovative features, and a top-notch and supreme car as the Huayra R is not going to be the exception. Pagani has said that this car is going to be the most comfortable and luxury one in the category.
