Pagani Huayra’s Request Denied By NHTSA, But Still Huayra Will Build It To The US in 2013

May 18, 2012 in Detroit-motor-show, Motor sports by admin

As we previously reported, in 2000, NHTSA published a final rule that upgraded the necessities for air bags in passenger cars and light trucks, requiring what are commonly known as “advanced air bags” and all automakers had to obey with the regulations, but a few low-volume manufacturers like Tesla and Lamborghini were given exemptions. As expected, Pagani practical for a similar pass and because the company didn’t have the financial resources to develop such a system, the management has denied its request. So, as a result, the company will have to go back to the drawing board and develop the required advanced airbag system as necessary by the NHTSA to sell their car in the United States, but this would cost them around $5.7 million. They can also skip out on this souk as they did with the previous Zonda, and probably this will happen.

Update: Well, here comes the attractive part, because, according to GTspirit, Pagani decided start of US deliveries in first part of 2013.

“The US market is significant to Pagani and the potential of our company. The Huayra project had a US market foreword as a key goal from the start. The reception we are currently experiencing in the US fully supports our vision and will fuel our willpower to successfully deliver the Huayra to our clientele in the United States,” Pagani said.

So, Pagani confirms reports that a requested exception for the advanced airbag rule has been denied by NHTSA but denies this will enduringly disrupt a market foreword of the Pagani Huayra in the United States and, with preparations for the completion of an advanced airbag system done, and testing well under way a winning market introduction of the Pagani Huayra in the United States with a delay of six to nine months is still possible. This way we’ll see Pagani Huayra on the US roads as soon as the start of 2013.
