Hello everyone, this is my first post here!

I have been working on this car for at least a week in Stud.io which I plan to make in real life soon and I wanted to get some people's thoughts on it before I ordered the parts, this is my 1:16 scale Pagani Huayra

I decided to build the Huayra after discussing what to build next with a friend over Instagram, and he pointed out that there wasn't really any Huayra models out there that weren't technic, so here it is.

It features a fully detailed interior and engine bay with the 6.0L AMG Twin-Turbocharged V12 covered in gold. It also has opening doors, back and front compartments (I don't know what to call them since you cant store anything in the front part) as well as opening storage boxes behind the doors and flaps on the front and back that open at high speed. 

I built this car from scratch only using some images and the blueprints to work out how big it needed to be. I spent around 20 hours over 3 days building and designing it and I don't want to release any instructions until I have it built in real life so I can make sure everything opens and closes properly.

Things I know need to be improved and what will be changed:

- Wheel covers don't come in that colour, will probably paint them

- Doors on the real car include the door + some of the roof, which is really difficult to design, so I will wait till I have it IRL so its easier

- Wheels with T-Bars colliding in the engine bay will eventually be connected with a pneumatic hose to make the turbos

I had a real challenge designing this and I really want your feedback so I know what I'm doing.

I have also made the Huayra BC version just for fun.

*The render with the flaps open was with an older version of the front end, just ignore it*

Hey everyone, I have made heaps of progress!

I have spent the last week or so the parts for the Huayra while watching some Top Gear to entertain me.

I spent around 3 days gathering parts from my parts list, and then spent 2 more building it. 

As you may be able to tell, I substituted the parts that I didnt have for different coloured ones while 3 Bricklink orders are on their way for delivery.

I made a few minor changes, mostly structural, as the car is very fragile. But everything works!! All the compartments open, the doors as well!

I'm super happy with it and i'm glad it worked out. Please have a look through my Bricksafe gallery with the photos of the development of the car, and thanks for looking!

I will be posting more on it soon once those orders get here.

Wow I love sports cars and this one looks really cool you have recreated the curves of the car very nicely.
Can the front wheels also steer?

Thankyou for your kind words! Unfortunately, no, the front wheels do not steer, that was done just to make the car look a bit cooler in Stud.io. I DID however do a mockup with the car that had steering which worked, but unfortunately it didnt fit with the bulk of the front panel, so I scrapped it. I still have the model, so I may try and figure it out again in the future.

Nice, I like the headlights and the mirrors. Also, cool how the well-known central exhaust is actually connected to engine details inside. The roof must have been hellish to design with all those curves, nice job on that, and nice use of those rounded 1x1 tiles!

I don't know the real car, but compared to the curved roof, the part around the rear window looks a bit too "flat". I mean those black 1x2x3 slopes. But I don't know if it's like that on the real car. But it's the only critique I could find, after looking long and hard ;)

Thank you very much! The roof was a tad difficult, it was more so keep it rigid so It can support the doors and not the angle. The rear window is a hard bit to do, as you are tackling 2 different angles, upwards and side ways. I've added some images of the real car for some reference as well.

Annndddd its done....

I received my last BrickLink order last night and finished the model and it looks great.

Overall I had fantastic time building and designing it and I am super happy with the result. Everything opens well, the details look great and the shape is super accurate.

I will be releasing instructions for it soon so keep an eye out.

Overall it looks very good! I like the tentacle pieces used for the exhaust system :thumbup:

Only thing I really dislike are the headlights. On the real car the lamps are sitting in a grove facing forward, and on your version they are sitting too high on top and facing upwards. That looks weird. Why not try to use These to mount the headlights in the correct way? Might be worth a shot :wink:

Hmm, thanks, I didn't really notice that. I've seen a bunch of people build Zondas and no one build a Huayra so I thought I'd take it upon myself to do it. I copied the headlight design from basically all of them and a little bit more research shows that the Zonda and Huayra have similar headlights. The "Eye lash" shape of the headlights is a crucial design part IMO so I prioritised. It didn't really bother me until you pointed it out, but thanks. I will definitely mess around with it. Thanks.
