The Huayra uses a twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG 60° V-12 engine. The Huayra's 6.0-litre engine, the M158, produces 730 horsepower (539 kW) and 1,000 N·m (740 lb·ft) of torque. Its top speed is in excess of 230 mph (370 km/h) and it has a 0–60 miles per hour (0–97 km/h) time of 3.3 seconds. Using Pirelli tires, the Pagani Huayra is capable of withstanding 1.66 g of lateral acceleration at speeds of up to 230 mph (370 km/h).
The Pagani Huayra uses a seven-speed sequential gearbox and a single disc clutch. The choice not to use a dual-clutch in oil bath was because it would lead to an increase in weight of over 70 kg (154 lb), negating the advantage of the ability of such transmissions to change gears faster. As a result, the entire transmission of the Pagani Huayra weighs 96 kg (210 lb).
The car is equipped with bespoke Brembo brake calipers, rotors and pads. The calipers are 6-piston in front and 4-piston in the rear. The rotors are drilled carbon ceramic, 380 mm (15.0 in) in diameter and 34 mm (1.3 in) thick. There are also four independent flaps which can act as air brakes or produce downforce.
