Pagani Huayra - Images, Specifications, Details

Pagani might be just a tiny car manufacturer, but the Huayra has been undergoing a detailed and painstaking (just google ‘Pagani C9 crash') five-year development process. Five prototypes were initially built to conduct road tests from the Death Valley to the Arctic Circle, ensuring the model can handle all climate extremes.

A carbon-titanium central monocoque is completely new, achieving huge levels of rigidity thanks to gullwing doors. Pagani even managed to fit the fuel tank inside the safety shell, while the front and rear subframes incorporate energy absorbing crash structures. Pure race car stuff. Especially when you realise the Huayra weighs just 1,350kg making it 255kg lighter than a Ferrari 599 GTO and 210kg lighter than the Lamborghini MurciƩlago LP 670-4 SV.

With a Mercedes-AMG 60-degree, 6.0-litre V12 turbocharged to 700bhp, the new Pagani boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 519bhp-per-tonne. There's also 1,000Nm of torque, while the turbos are able to avail all this twist earlier than ever thanks to tweaking that enables immediate response and at any point in the rev band. Dry sump lubrication means the engine never gets starved of oil either, and a titanium exhaust system weighing 10kg less than before completes the heart of the Huayra.

Aerodynamically, the Huayra is state of the art, with adjustable front ride height and control flaps on all four corners. These flaps raise or lower according to inputs from the ABS and ECU, calculating speed, yaw rate, lateral acceleration, steering angle and throttle position to make a decision.

Apple iPad Review

The iPad continued to wow us throughout the long-term test. No hidden flaws became apparent in the hardware, and we still like it just as described in our original review. The new iOS 4 represents a significant improvement, thanks especially to the introduction of multitasking.

It still has its closed system which is controlled by Apple. It means that interesting apps like the mobile Firefox browser or VLC are still denied to users. On the other hand, there is a wide range of genuinely high-quality applications in the App Store, with a simple payment system. Android has not (yet) achieved this.

Despite all of this, the iPad is still predominantly a consumer tablet which has to be specially adapted if you want to use it for business. For this reason iOS still cannot compare with a desktop operating system.

Once you have come to terms with its limitations, the iPad is still without a doubt far better than the rivals that came after it, like the Galaxy Tab and the Dell Streak.

Does the up-to-date technophile need an iPad? A difficult question, particularly for those who already have a smartphone. But once you have an iPad, you won’t want to be without one...
