The latest supercar so wild it's banned from the road

Pagani has launched its latest supercar which is so extreme it's banned from the roads. 

The race-track-only Pagani Huayra R follows a similar template to the Ferrari FXX with Pagani turning an ultra-exclusive road car into a track-only supercar.

As one of the most extreme cars ever built, the Pagani Huayra R features blistering performance and high-tech features making it one of the most driver focused cars available.

The catch, other than the fact you can't drive it anywhere but the race-track, is that an exceptionally small number of the cars have been made.

Only 30 of the exotic machines will be built costing €2.6 million ($3.97 million) each, which after Australian taxes and import duties are added, would equate to a bill of around $6 million.

The Huayra R has an aerodynamic enormous fin, gaping front vents and huge rear diffusers.

It is equipped with a monstrous non-turbo 6.0-litre V12 engine making a beefy 625kW and 750Nm – which is about the same as five Toyota Corollas combined – and sent to the rear wheels.

The car only weighs 1050kg, which is about 300kg lighter than your average small hatchback.

In true race car form the Huayra R’s V12 engine will rev all the way up to 9000rpm with max power delivered at 8250rpm.
