Pagani has touched down in Melbourne, with the Huayra Roadster becoming the first road-registrable hypercar in Australia.
Priced from a whopping $5.5 million before on-road costs, the news that "just a few" of the 100 Huayra Roadster production slots would be reserved for local buyers was revealed at the opening of a new Pagani showroom on Swan Street in Richmond, Victoria.
The brand will be imported by Zagame Automotive, which is now one of just 24 authorised Pagani dealers worldwide.
