Pagani Huayra takes on Pagani Zonda in exclusive track test
But so exclusive and influential is the Goodwood Road and Racing Club that it managed to convince one of its members, a certain Peter Read, to loan not one but two extremely rare Paganis for a day of track trickery.
In the blue corner is the glorious Pagazni Zonda, with its massive naturally-aspirated 7.3 litre AMG engine that produces in excess of 545bhp. In the red corner is the new Huayra, with the slightly smaller 6-litre V12 engine that, thanks to a ruddy big turbocharger, produces a massive 720bhp.
The result is a video that shows the two magnificent machines going head-to-head on a sodden Goodwood circuit, not so much to race but to show off exhaust notes and generally look pretty.
A spokesperson for Goodwood racing circuit said: "This is the first time these two cars have ever been on track together with their amazing engine sound and exhaust noise - a little muted by the wet weather - and the cars look as magnificent as you'd expect."
