Was two cars back from a red and black Pagani Huayra with gold wheels tonight a few miles outside of Thetford in Norfolk. I'm presuming it was using a few of the quieter back roads to open it up a bit. Never thought I'd see one in the open let alone out where I live. Looked as if it had an Italian plate on it. Anybody know owt about it?

Most likely to be from the Pagani UK place in Wembley, probably testing or lost... hehe

Ha ha! Yeah I expect it could cover a fair bit of ground in a hurry if it needed to! I do know of a few supercar owners in the area but most have already been ruled out one way or another. It's a big step up though from Gallardo's, 458's and F12's to Pagani though, that's proper big league stuff! I kinda regret not trying to chase it down now but a) I was in a hurry and going in the opposite direction from the junction and b) I was in a Puma so might have struggled to keep up north of 100 biggrin

As I clicked on this thread I thought to myself "I hope this is someone questioning the presence of a Pagani Huayra in the Thetford area this evening"...

I too was in the area and am glad to hear I'm not the only person to have seen this as I was starting to question my sanity. My jaw was on the floor

That's the Kiddy! I've got about 3 seconds of video of it pulling out of a junction, would have loved to have been the car in front who was directly behind it! I know a local Farmer has Eric Claptons ex F12, slim chance it might have been him in it. Looked awesome but was surprisingly quiet!?

Is this the same one spotted on a driveway in Billericay a few weeks back ? Sure it was an Italian plated one same colour.

I have seen this car about 5-6 times, emerging from & returning to Fison Way Industrial estate in Thetford since Saturday. Amazing sight & sound....

Possibly the guy who owns the ford and Nissan garages then. I've worked on Fison Way and are now over the road on Brunel Way so have have seen him in Bentley's and a 458. We'll done to him if it is, big step up!

We think it may be in the care of the Multimatic Technical Centre in Fison Way having suspension R&D work. This would account for the numerous round trips it seems to be making throughout the day. The car is possibly Pagani owned.

Ah I see, interesting stuff. Do they still engineer F1 parts as well? Back in the day when I was a manual machinist they used the small firm I worked for to make parts for them. It's the one and only time I worked with titanium. Wonder what they are developing?

Having read a few things on social media, my understanding is that this car is Pagani owned and has been based / seen at their Wembley centre in London on and off over the last few weeks. It is their PT1 prototype and so it's probably being taken through its paces up in quiet Norfolk / being worked on in the Thetford place.

It was also spotted very incongruously pulling into a driveway in Billericay a few weeks ago. Maybe an engineers house etc.

If you google the number plate it has been show boated around many European cities. It was also on the Gumball 3000
