When one thinks of Pagani, you don’t usually consider a standard Huayra or Zonda as ‘normal’. Indeed, each one of Mr Pagani’s creations are out-of-this-world in their own right. However, every now and again the Italian manufacturer throws in a bit more extra out-of-this-worldness to the designers’ brief. This can be seen with the likes of the Zonda HP Barchetta and Huayra BC. Speaking of the Huayra, it appears that Pagani are secretly developing another variant of the company’s only production model. Kris Singh, better known as Lamborghiniks on Instagram, recently posted a picture showing a test mule for a potentially even more hard-core version of the Huayra. Just by seeing the spy-shot, you can bet your bottom dollar that this new Pagani will almost certainly be as unique and bonkers as ever.

Things will hopefully settle done once the Supra gets its first round of real-world test drives. Meanwhile, Toyota has started some parallel buzz-generation in addition to the official announcements. Toyota Chief Engineer, Tetsuya Tada who spoke to Road & Track said that the new Supra can easily lap the Nurburgring in 7:40.
