$1 Million Supercar, The Italian automaker Pagani was to begin to sell and 1 million, 700-horsepower supercar in the U.S. Huayra later this year, but federal safety regulators have said “Not so fast.”
Pagani had requested an exemption from federal safety standards requiring automobile child safety “advanced” airbags, arguing that compliance with the rule would have caused “significant economic difficulties,” according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
NHTSA denied the request, essentially blocking the car sold in the U.S., as Pagani could not show that the installation of airbags in the twin-turbo 12-cylinder car carbon-titanium that the entity would financial overload. In addition, the Italian manufacturer has not shown that serious efforts have been made to comply, the agency said.
The security agency car sometimes grants temporary exemptions from specific safety standards, especially for automakers that plan to sell only a small number of cars.
Pagani Huayra created as part of the automaker’s plan to enter the U.S. market. The car was designed and tested to meet crash safety standards both in the U.S. and Europe.
Pagani insists he will sell the car here, not only in 2012 as planned. The Huayra now due for release sometime in 2013, Sanaz Bakhtiari Paganai spokesman said.

At about 3,000 pounds, Pagani Huayra boasts that it is the lightest car in its class, allowing you to go from zero to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds.
With seven-figure price the Huayra who have competed in the field of rarefied prices of cars like the Bugatti Veyron, who is finishing his work as sales Huayra only was preparing to enter the market, or the Lamborghini Reventon sold quickly.
With a total of just 60 employees, small Pagani factory can only produce many of the cars built largely by hand, so initial sales in the U.S. be limited to five cars per year during 2012, the automaker said in February. After that, a factory expansion plan would allow the sale of up to 10 cars a year here.
