“I love this car because I can feel the road. It has drama, just the right amount.”
Keith Urban’s former 2014 Pagani Huayra is on sale. The vehicle was previously featured on Jay Leno’s Garage: Top 10 Most Beautiful Rides, although it was mistakenly titled a 2011.
With just 100 coupes and 100 roadsters produced, it remains rare, even amongst other limited run hyper cars. ‘Huayra’, as Urban tells, is the Argentinian God Of Wind.
In the 2020 episode, Leno says of the car, “The best designs I find incorporate both the masculine and feminine element to it because that’s what beauty is. It’s a mixture of both. The rear you have these haunches, sort of muscular like a cat about to leap, yet the mirrors look like a woman’s eyelash. It’s about beauty [and] strength, which both men and women have, and you see that in the beautiful Pagani Huayra. This is a truly a combination of art and engineering.”
“The inside’s as beautiful as the outside,” Leno continues, as he checks out the engine.
“I love this car because I can feel the road. It has drama, just the right amount,” Urban adds.
He also credits his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, for his – at the time – new found love of small cars.

Urban also shares that the first vehicle he ever owned was a truck he got at 16-years-old, “I saw it on the side of the road one night driving home from a gig. I was playing in a band that played during the week without me and I said to Mum and Dad, ‘you know, you can legally leave school at 15.’ Luckily, they supported that, so at 15, I quit school and I never looked back.”
The 2014 Pagani Huayra is for sale at duPont REGISTRY at Chicago Motor Cars in Illinois. It features a blue exterior colour, gray interior colour and has only 6,457 miles on the clock.
According to the website: “This example sports a dark blue exterior with blue-tinted carbon fibre and a contrasting beige and black leather interior. Being a Pagani, the carbon-fibre work extends into the interior, where this car's centre console and dashboard also feature the lightweight material. It rides on a set of custom ANRKY centre-lock wheels and has paint protection film installed.”
The sale also includes its original tire repair kit, factory wheels, Pagani luggage, owner's books, manuals, and two vehicle master remote keys.

According to YouTube: “Jay Leno’s Garage explores our obsession with all things automotive. From classic cars to supercars and everything in-between, Jay is hitting the road to discover the most exciting, weird and wonderful vehicles ever made and meet the passionate people behind their wheels.
"Each one-hour themed episode features a mix of stunts, challenges, reviews, and celebrity interviews that showcases the colourful history of the automobile. Whether he’s exploring the story of an iconic brand, road-testing the newest super car, or investigating the latest automotive innovations, there is no wheel Jay won’t get behind to tell the story of our love affair with the car.”
