Among the world's billionaires, the Hermès brand is certainly no stranger to them as one of the French classy fashion brands. But what if those famous brand is translated into a hypercar? Of course many want to see it, and recently Hermés collaborated with an Italian premium automotive manufacturer named Pagani Automobili to launch a special edition hypercar named Pagani Huayra Hermès Edition.

The swanky supercar kit for the mega million-dollar coupe costs about $182,000. We can only imagine how much the customized Hermès leather interior set him back. (A fancy Hermès bag can easily cost upwards of $10,000, so a custom order can't be small change.)

Then who is the owner of the Huayra Hermès hypercar? Yes, an Iranian-born American property entrepreneur named Manuchehr 'Manny' Khoshbin is the owner of this super-luxury Hypercar. Khoshbin says the Tempesta kit gives the appearance of better exotic Italian coupes and a bolder look.

And recently he also uploaded a video about this extravagant hypercar on his YouTube channel. In the video, he explained the manufacturing process from the beginning to the final product. Khoshbin first approached the famous fashion brand in 2015 with the desire to use high-quality leather that is famous in hypercar - specifically, Pagani Huayra. After consulting with Pagani Automobili in Italy, then an agreement was reached and a multi-year design process began. In this case. PaPagani relinquished some control over the car’s construction and allowed Hermés to collaborate on some key material choices.

There are also special luggage sets specifically made for this car, made to match the seats and other major interior components. While the design might be a little over-the-top for some, it exemplifies that the length that hypercar makers like Pagani Automobili are willing to reach in order to satisfy their clients.

Pagani Huayra is capable of accelerating from 0-100 kilometers per hour no more than three seconds, while its highest speed reaches 380 km/hour. To withstand the speed, the Brembo four-piston calipers brake devices are installed on the front wheels and carbon ceramic disc brakes 380 millimeters in diameter for its rear wheels. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PAGANI | MOTORTREND | MOTOR1]
