Pagani Huayra BC pushing for Nürburgring lap record?

Official 'Ring Taxi for the Nordschleife by Jaguar RaceTaxi Nürburgring
T-shirts and hoodies available this week!

Let’s face facts. The Huayra doesn’t need any help to sell units. And the car that we can see testing, the Huayra BC is a total one-off. It’s sold-not-sold already, and merely serves as an advertisement for all the awesome things Pagani do.

So why is it here at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, running the latest Pirelli PZero tyres for a whole week?

Maybe we should ask the driver…

Yep, that’s Marc Basseng behind the wheel. Prolific GT racer, accepted Nürburgring specialist and past lap-record holder in various exotica (including Maserati MC12s, Carrera GTs, Enzos and more…)

You don’t wheel Marc out just for some fun laps. And you can’t justify a test program for a car that’s been “out” nearly half-a-decade.

It’s got to be a laptime effort.
