ITALIAN STYLE BY THE NUMBERS: The Pagani Huayra. Seven speeds, 730 horses, $1.6 million.

After a head-turning debut at February’s DFW Auto Show, the $1.6 million Pagani Huayra (pronounced WHY-ra), an Italian exotic capable of 230 mph, is now properly stabled on Lemmon Avenue. Aston Martin of Dallas has added a Pagani franchise to its facilities, becoming the first dealer in Texas for the elite sports-car maker. “Pagani’s Huayra is considered one of the most desirable cars in the world … a piece of art,” says Kurt Fegraeus, managing partner of Pagani of Dallas and Aston Martin of Dallas. The aggressive-looking Huayra is powered by a 6-liter, twin-turbo Mercedes-Benz V-12 blasting out 730 horsepower — in a 3,000-pound car. It features a seven-speed sequential gearbox and is capable of howling to 60 mph in a mere 3.2 seconds. Evo magazine in Europe named the Pagani its 2013 Car of the Year, and it was 2013 Performance Car of the Year at Car magazine. In addition, Top Gear magazine named it the 2013 HyperCar of the Year. Don’t expect to see many cooling down among the S550s and M5 Bimmers at Highland Park Village: The Dallas dealership expects to sell only three or four a year.
