God of the Winds

As part of the festivities leading up to this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, nearly a dozen Pagani Huayras—supercars valued at around $1.7 million each—converged in Beverly Hills for the start of the Pagani Raduno, an owner’s rally to Monterey, California.

It’s hard to believe that there was about $20 million worth of cars just sitting in the driveway of a hotel. Although this is probably just another run-of-the-mill day for the city of Beverly Hills.

Automotive Trivial Pursuit: The Huayra is named after the God of Wind, Huayra Tata, who was worshiped by the indigenous people of the Bolivian and Peruvian Andes.

Feeling like paparazzi, I had little time to compose my photos due to the looming threat of being asked to leave the area as the crowd of photographers and onlookers grew.

Moments later, the overwhelmed staff began asking non-hotel guests to kindly step off the property.

A 45-minute drive to Beverly Hills (of course, due to traffic) netted about 6 minutes with my favorite supercars. *sigh*

All was not lost. Since we were right next to the famed Rodeo Drive, the girlfriend and I paid a visit to the Coach store to find her a replacement purse, something she’d been wanting to do for the longest time.

With her new purse and floral wallet in hand, we headed back to our car just in time to catch all of the Huayras leaving for their journey north.

All in all, it was an exciting and productive day for both of us.
