The Sonus faber audio system in the Pagani Huayra
If you’re not in the Pagani-buying demographic, chances are you may not have heard of Sonus faber. Like Pagani’s automobiles, its critically-acclaimed loudspeakers are built for optimal performance, often without regard to cost (though, in fairness, its lower-end models are priced on par with other premium offerings).
Another similarity is that the range-topping Sonus faber Homage Series models are as much about art as they are about performance, which is why the audio brand is a perfect choice for inclusion in Horacio Pagani’s no-compromise automobiles.
As GT Spirit tells us, the first Sonus faber-equipped Pagani Huayra will be displayed at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The system features amplifiers totaling 1,200-watts in output (three times the output of a standard Huayra audio system), as well as speakers designed both for optimum sound and light weight.
Speaker cones are constructed from carbon fiber, while powerful-but-light neodymium magnets help deliver optimal performance. A Digital Sound Processor function allows occupants to select the type of listening experience they prefer based upon the type of music, ranging from an intimate concert hall to an open-air stadium.
There’s no word on exactly how much the Sonus faber audio option will add to the price of a Pagani Huayra, but we’ll go ahead and ask the question: if you’re spending upwards of a million dollars on a new supercar, are you going to cheap out when it comes to the audio system?
