For centuries the wind has been viewed as nature’s paradox with its ability to be both gentle and powerful. The newly-unveiled Pagani Huayra, named after the Andean God of Wind, reflects this dichotomy and will be available exclusively in Shift 2 Unleashed and Need for Speed in 2011, the latest entry to the critically acclaimed Need for Speed simulation series.
The team at Slightly Mad Studios has recreated the form and function of this year’s most notable new supercar. From its elegant body shape to its commanding 700 HP engine, Shift 2 Unleashed is the first videogame where players will feel the white knuckle intensity of racing the Pagani Huayra at speeds of over 230 mph.
“For the past seven years, the designing of the Huayra has been a labor of love and I’m ecstatic to be working with the entire Need for Speed team to help share our creation with the world,” said Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili. “I’m amazed by how accurately they have been able to capture the look and, most importantly, the feel of the Huayra. Shift 2 Unleashed will give enthusiasts all over the world the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Huayra.”
Developed by the award-winning Slightly Mad Studios, Shift 2 Unleashed will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in March.
