The Pagani Huayra Debuts Its New Automotive Audio System by Sonus faber

  • John Lyon

The Italian supercar marque Pagani, in collaboration with the Italian speaker maker Sonus faber, has introduced a new stereo enhancement for its flagship sports car, the Huayra. The twin-turbo, 720 hp Huayra—which debuted on American shores in 2012 and achieves an impressive zero-to-60 time of 3.3 seconds—is now offered with an audio upgrade appropriate to its exceptional road-going performance. Producing a bone-rattling 1,200 watts of power (about three times the power of the car’s stock stereo), the Sonus faber system consists of a tweeter and midrange driver in each of the car’s two doors along with two coaxial speakers in the rear-window shelf and a massive subwoofer, all of which are adapted to best utilize the unique soundstage of the Huayra’s cabin. Referencing the carbon composites and aerodynamic architecture of the Huayra’s exterior, the Sonus faber system’s components are crafted from lightweight materials including aluminum alloy for the speaker baskets and carbon fiber for the speaker cones, which are powered by neodymium magnets. The Pagani Huayra starts at $1.5 million, and the cost of the Sonus faber audio upgrade is available upon request. (www.pagani.com, www.sonusfaber.com)
