Pagani removes the roof from its Huayra supercar, lowers your jaw

Posted February 18, 2017

In fact, although Pagani say all the Roadsters are sold, it seems the starting price was around £2 million plus tax, which would make a UK Pagani Huayra Roadster cost £2.4 million.

Auto Express says the vehicle has been spotted testing on circuits in Italy and that the BC will get a new transmission and differential set-up for optimum performance.

The Pagani Huayra first officially arrived six years ago at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011 (in fact, Cars UK exclusively published the first ever photo of the Pagani Huayra in January 2011), and Horacio Pagani assure us there would be a Huayra Roadster by 2014. Pagani described this design as the most advanced materials used in any Formula One cars.

The Huayra Roadster will retail for roughly $2.4 million, but unfortunately for buyers just finding out about it now, all 100 units to be built have already been spoken for. The Roadster's weight is down to technology borrowed from the Huayara BC hypercar, which is now still in development.

The central tub is constructed from carbo-titanium and carbo-triax HP52 which is a combination of two carbon-fibre weaves. Pagani has reserved 0-100kmph time and top speed of Huayra Roadster for Geneva debut. Pagani says that its new Huayra Roadster is "an unbridled work of art, intelligence and open-air passion".

The Huayra roadster gets an aggressive grille, wider wheel arches, roll bars, a light carbon and glass hard top, and a soft fabric roof that can be installed quickly.

The Roadster comes with two different roofs as well-one is made from carbon fiber and features a glass window, while the other is a fabric unit that can be stored in the auto. The twelve-cylinder engine, built specifically for Pagani by Mercedes-AMG delivers 763bhp of power at 6,200rpm and a torque of over 1000Nm right from 2,400rpm. Power is sent through a seven-speed sequential gearbox. Visually, the BC will sport heaps of new aerodynamic kit over the standard model - the huge rear wing on show in the teaser shot will be joined by similarly serious appendages at the front, as well as more cooling vents. It also comes with an electronic mechanical differential.

Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, forged aluminum wheels, with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires - 21 inches in the rear and 20 inches in the front - complete the pricey package.
