As much as one can respect the efforts of authorities such as the NHTSA I’m genuinely struggling to remember the last time they announced something that got me excited.
Better yet, let’s all try and remember the last time they came up with something that didn’t concern most of us be it for our safety or for the one of those around.
The latest from the NHTSA is pretty much on par with this lineup but it’s somewhat sadder since it involves a car very dear to our hearts, the Pagani Huayra.
According to the American big daddy in terms of safety, this car isn’t really that relevant and doesn’t come very high on their priority list.
This is because the hypercar that has most kids drooling over and most adults dreaming still didn’t receive its street legal status.
Despite this “niggle” the Italian brand has already sold 18 units of the Huayra in the US. All of the owners are well aware of the situation.
Let’s remind ourselves that these people are spending 1.6 million USD each to get a car that’s currently no more than a trophy or occasional track day car.
I’m sure that most of them will buy them for their collections and probably not drive them more than 5 miles per century, but that can’t be the case for all of them.
Surely some of them are still making calls to “the right people” in an attempt to get this small problem sorted out.
After all, you can’t simply turn up to the restaurant in a car that 30-40 other people in the country have, can you?
