Wow, I might have set a record for the most “Huayra” in one blog title. I will cherish that record.
But it has a purpose. Hot Wheels released a brand new Pagani Huayra. Not a new color, a new casting. A Roadster, and it will get the supercar fans giddy. A) Because it’s a Pagani, and B) because it’s an improvement over the last Hot Wheels Pagani.
A Pagani Huayra owns the road. It makes the road its bitch. It growls at you. It glares at you. The Hot Wheels version doesn’t do that. It is too cute. The new Roadster comes a heck of a lot closer. I did a comparison of the old and new while showcasing the new Exotics 5-pack:
Comparing the two, I always thought it was the front end that wasn’t right about the HW Huayra. Now I actually think it is the height. There is too much clearance on the previous version, but it is corrected on Ryu Asada’s Roadster design:
Just that more sleek, as a supercar should look. And now that we have both, they make a good pair.
Hot Wheels should keep doing supercars. Just based on the surge on traffic I see when I post one, especially from areas like Indonesia and Malaysia, suggests there is a lot of demand. It will always stink that Mattel does not have the Ferrari license, but maybe the silver lining is that we can see more supercars, maybe from some more obscure badges. If they look as good as the Roadster, I will be collecting quite a few.
