Pagani Automobili SpA has announced its dealership network for the United States. Only two dealerships, The Auto Gallery of Beverly Hills and British Motor Cars in San Francisco, will be selling the company’s latest model, the Pagani Huayra.
“Both dealerships will begin taking orders for the Huayra in mid-2011, with the first customer deliveries expected for early 2012,” Pagani said. “The announcement of the two dealers marks the first time U.S. enthusiasts will have the opportunity to obtain a Pagani automobile in the states.”

Why is Pagani only starting with two dealers? Because each Pagani Huayra is hand-crafted and takes about two months to built, so with two dealers, Pagani will be ensuring it can actually fulfill the orders it receives to create a pleasant experience for both dealers and the customer.
If the fact that Pagani will be launching in the U.S. with only two dealers had you shocked, the best is yet to come. Due to its limited production, neither dealer will stock a Huayra. But Pagani said that it plans to have a demo car in the U.S. that will be made available for select events, customer viewings and possible dealer events starting in 2012.
Pagani said that it is evaluating adding more dealers to its U.S. network in the future and will announce additional plans throughout 2011.
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.
