The Pagani Huayra is an amazing car. 720 HP… active aerodynamics… a top speed of 231 mph… 0-60 in 3.3 seconds… quickest ever around the Top Gear test track. The numbers and details are just astounding. Then there is the key. The entire idea just boggles me. This is one of the most advanced vehicles in the world, and the key is this giant lump of aluminum that only gets worse when you actually use it. Given the technology of the modern supercar, I’d more likely expect it to be able to sense the unique chemical signature of the methane in your own personal exhaust to enable ignition than this pocket bulging monstrosity. Or, more realistically, perhaps NFC with your phone or some sort of biometrics. But this? Here is what it looks like in practice.
And here is a video with a look at the whole thing.
