When most people take delivery of £2million worth of hypercar, they tend to park it up in a temperature-controlled garage, hook it up to a trickle charger and leave it to sit.
But Bob isn’t most people. Better known as 1slocrx on Instagram, Bob is putting his brand new Pagani Huayra Roadster to the test by crossing from the West to the East Coast of the United States on a circa 3,000-mile road trip.
Not only that, but he’s doing so to meet other Pagani owners. What’s the plan shortly after arrival? Another road trip, with said Pagani owners. As if the trans-American dash wasn’t enough…
Pagani Huayra Roadster: hypercar grand tourer
With carbon-titanium construction and a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 packing over 760hp, you wouldn’t imagine the Pagani Huayra Roadster to be entirely suitable for a week’s mile-munching. With an entry price of $2.6million in America, it’s not something you want covered in stone chips…
Noted Instagram hypercar connoisseur and proponent of the ‘drive it, don’t park it’ ethos, Kris Singh, posted with regard to Bob’s approach to Pagani ownership.

“A very smart and dapper man once said to me, “All these guys on Instagram buy these cars and think that makes them ballers. Meanwhile they take pics for Instagram and never drive them. Being a real baller is driving it, not caring about miles, depreciation and experiencing the car.” No one could have said it better, and the man practices what he says.”
We couldn’t agree more. At the time of writing, Bob, and photographer Tyler Lee have left California, passed through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.
Oklahoma represents, give or take, the halfway point, and they’ve been going for over three days now. Keep up with their trip, as well as the Pagani owners meet to follow, with the #RoadsterRoadTrip2019 tag on Instagram.
