The Pagani Huyara that was standing at the brand’s 2012 Geneva Motor Show display was scheduled to go straight to Middle East to its brand new owner after the show closed on March 18. Apparently the owner changed his mind and never took delivery of the Huayra. However, another – and even more desperate – Middle Eastern contacted Pagani and ended up paying an outstanding 1.8 million euros ($2.3 million USD) for the car. That’s 900,000 euros ($1.17 million USD) more than what it cost the factory to produce.

Reports also suggest that the last Pagani Zonda F Roadster ever was recently sold for 1.3 million euros along with a ‘new’ 2008 Pagani Zonda F Coupe for 1.2 million (1.57 million USD). Also sold was a right-hand-drive Zonda C125 for 700,000 euros ($917,559 USD).

Refresher: The Pagani Huayra is powered by a Mercedes-Benz AMG 6.0L twin-turbo V12 engine making 700-hp with a maximum torque of 740 lb-ft. Mated to a 7-speed sequential cross transmission with AMT robotic system driving programs, the 2,970 pound Huayra is capable of hitting a top speed of 230 mph. Prices start at $1.35 million.
