Haute Wheels: How to Craft a Posh Pagani
One-of-a-kind Huayra Hermes Edition
Some guys have all the luck. Scratch that. Some guys have all the bucks and the coolest cars. Take this fine example, owned by real estate maverick Manuchehr "Manny" Khoshbin.
Khoshbin recently posted his latest beauty, a one-off Pagani Huayra Hermès Edition, on his popular Instagram account.
It is one of the last Huayra coupes built with the "Tempesta package" and one of the first times Pagani teamed up with the Parisian luxury brand Hermès. In fact, the car sports the only Hermès gear shifter knob we know of.
The official Pacchetto Tempesta kit was revealed in Geneva earlier this year. It features tasteful aerodynamic design, as well as upgraded suspension, exhaust and wheels.
Khoshbin says the Tempesta kit gives his exotic Italian coupe better performance and a bolder look. And who's to argue with that?
"The car I admit sings to you as you push the throttle and lay back!" he stated on Instagram.
The swanky supercar kit for the mega million-dollar coupe costs about $182,000. We can only imagine how much the customized Hermès leather interior set him back. (A fancy Hermès bag can easily cost upwards of $10,000, so a custom order can't be small change.)
The Southern California real estate tycoon owns a number of supercars. But this is definitely one of the most exquisite.
The stock, 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 Mercedes-AMG engine in the Huayra produces at least 720 horsepower and 737 lb ft of torque.
Anyone else seeking to customize a Pagani might want to wait until next spring, though. That's when the new Pagani Huayra Roadster debuts. Carbuzz reports that Pagani will officially unveil the topless version of the super car at the Geneva auto show in March.
We can't wait to see how Khoshbin and other collectors will personalize that radical roadster. A Bulgari diamonds encrusted steering wheel with a Louis Vuitton soft top, perhaps? The sky is definitely the limit here.
