A LOCAL garage was stunned to be lucky enough to welcome a £1 million supercar to its ramp.
Blyton Service Station may not be the biggest garage in the area but it recently welcomed one of the world’s most expensive and exclusive cars.
The £850,000 Pagani Huayra had been testing at nearby Blyton Park Circuit and its team of four engineers from the factory in Modena, Italy, needed to get underneath it to check some of its systems.
Blyton Park’s owner Richard Usher rang George Heppenstall at the garage and the 720 horsepower twin – turbo V12 – powered supercar was soon safely in the air in Blyton village.
George said: “We often help out owners of cars visiting Blyton Park but being able to see the Pagani being engineered in our workshop was a real taste of the exotic.”
“After a full diagnostic and physical check, the car returned to the circuit where it performed a series of acceleration and handling tests around the track accelerating to 60 miles per hour in just over three seconds and achieved speeds in excess of 160 mph.”
The Pagani Huayra is made by Pagani Automobili which was founded by Horatio Pagani in 1999.
