Pagani breaks TopGear track record

The Stig insude the blazing hot Pagani Huayra

The season premier of TopGear got off to a record breaking start when the potent Pagani Huayra claimed the top spot on our Top Gear Test Track.

Driven by The Stig, the Huayra smashed the previous record by more than a full second, setting a blistering fast lap time of 1:13.8. Dethroned is the British-made Ariel Atom V8 500, which held the 1:15.1 speed record for almost two years.

This allowed the Pagani to claim the prize as the fastest street-legal car on our track, lifting the bar for the rest of the season – and possible many more to come. No wonder this marvellous machine claimed the prize as the TopGear Hypercar of the year in 2012.

DSTV subscribers can catch all the action next Wednesday evening the 6th of February, at 8pm on channel 120.
