PHOTO GALLERY: AUTOart Pagani Huayra BC – Blue Francia/Carbon

We highlighted multiple colours of the AUTOart Pagani Huayra BC here at, why not another?  The latest in the series is called Blue Francia/Carbon.  Initially when we opened on the box first impression was the ejecta action.  Days later we placed her in front of the camera and the feeling of ejecta subsided somewhat.  We still believe its the least attractive colour of the group.  However, colour, style is very subjective, in the end, buy what you like best!

The photos highlight the exterior view primarily. And then we transition into some extreme close-ups for those that appreciate the finer details.  Overall the model of the AUTOart Pagani Huayra BC is solid, we like it a lot.  As for 2019 Model of the Year, this model placed 5th with 9% of the vote.  AUTOart’s lowest showing in years.  Is this in protest to composite over diecast metal?  Possibly.  Enjoy the pics!

    Guys, I’m sorry for the offtopic, but will there be a Ferrari 288 GTO review from kk-models? I’d love to read how the model turned out.

    This is the one i chose. I admit I was borderline angry when I lifted the foam mold. This is still my favorite due to the beautiful metallic blue paint and in my opinion it’s the best interior of colour lineup… The main reason for my disappointment is from the photos that started circulating of the same model with a more purplish carbon fiber that had slight undertones of teal in the shadowed areas. Kinda like the old Charlotte Hornets uniform. It looked waaaay better than the current model and to me was a much more acceptable representation of the real thing. However, the entrancing ripple of colour created as light dances across the the carbon fiber of a real life pagani vehicle im sure would be difficult to recreate. Wherever those images came from, a few highly respected online diecast retailers are using them on their listings. If you think you are getting a model in the photos I speak of. Then you open the box to see this car. There might be a lot of angry people, especially at the price point.

      You’re so right, the initial images were very poor are started a negative ripple effect. Everyone has their thing, different strokes for different folks. Enjoy the model!

    The color combination for the carbon weave of teal and dark blue looks great, although quite large for the scale (understandable as it would be very hard to truly make it in actual scaled down dimensions). This alone makes this particular color combination for the car unique and desirable for some, including myself. But why are there no pictures of the opening bits in ‘opened’ position to show the interior and the engine? This is autoart and it’s supposed to have 360 degree access. Right?

    • DS Team says:

      I’ll be honest with you. We took several photos of this models on the other colours. Too lazy to unlock the open features. If you own one you know what we mean. It was a timing thing too.

      Don’t get me wrong i love the model. I had preordered it. I don’t regret it for a second. But if look up the 1:1 Pagani Huayra BC in this colour it is truly a masterpiece. I just with Autoart would have given more effort to mimic the vehicle this is said to be replicating. Especially considering the criticism over composite models hasn’t slowed at all. And the asking price for this model causes me to plead for more accuracy

    It looks good i guess but if was diecast metal it look way better

    Got you point. Anyway, I’ve seen your previous post showing the same car in silver and gray color combination, which included a number of interior shots of the engine and cabin. Looks nicely done by Autoart. For me, this blue version is better looking than the silver one.

      Like we said different strokes for different folks. At the end of the day, this is a very good model. Those that dismiss it do to composite body panels are definitely missing it. And when you think about it, coimposite is closer to the 1:1 thatn diecast metal is!

  7. Mike Wiseman says:

    I can see both sides of it. The composite models have grown on me a little. They still have some mass to them and who says quality means it has to feel like a brick. The composite body panels do appear more accurate in scale as well as the gaps and shut lines. However autoart’s gaps and shut lines looked just as good before they switched to composite. I’ll admit I do like the feel of my Almost Real Bentley GT3 R, and my BBR Ferrari f12 TDF. But I my only issues with autoart are the fact that they have slacked off on some details, especially interior details, while prices have only increased on their models. My suggestion to Autoart is if you want to incorporate more composite fine.. but make the cars true to life. If it’s a hypercar made totally of lightweight materials then use composite bodywork. If it’s a sports car using some ABS panels and some metal then use a combination of composite and diecast….

      “But I my only issues with autoart are the fact that they have slacked off on some details, especially interior details, while prices have only increased on their models.”

      This is absolutely true. Seems there is a yo-yo action with overall details with their assortment as of late. Good exterior, average interior and motors or excellent exteriors, good interior, average motors. And the script can be written in many other ways. AUTOart’s top consistency would be appreciated at its price point.
