Watch Pagani test driver take his son on a joyride [video]

Pagani Huayra was revealed already three years ago at the Geneva Motor Show, but it still is one of the most exclusive supercars on the market with a base price of 1,050,000 EUR (£890,000).

Around 40 cars are produced per year, making it quite rare and seeing one in person is quite exciting, especially if you get to hear the AMG sourced 6.0-litre V12 twin-turbo engine with 730bhp and 1,000Nm of torque, taking the 1,350kg supercar from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 230mph (370 km/h).

It takes skills to handle this car at high speed and Davide Testi, Pagani’s chief test driver, is probably the man who has more miles on this high-end supercar than anyone else on the planet.

Recently on a car event in Italy, he took the Huayra for a quick spin on a closed parking lot with his son, spinning the wide rear tyres and high-revving the engine.

Some might call it reckless to have a small child on your lap, when driving, but many of us have learned to drive this way so just relax. It was a closed area and he was not going that fast. People are going crazy with safety. Sure it is important, but is the world really that much safer than 25 years ago when some cars even did not have rear seat belts?
