Pagani Denied U.S. Air-Bag Hardship Waiver for $1.1 Million Car

Pagani Automobili SpA, the Italian supercar maker, will have to install advanced air bags in its $1.1 million Huayra gull-wing coupe after being denied a hardship exemption from the U.S. auto-safety regulator.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which said earlier this year it would stop giving waivers to an 11-year-old air bag safety regulation, denied Pagani’s exemption request in a Federal Register notice posted today.
