The Pagani Huayra roadster is finally here. Ever since the Pagani Huayra was presented in Geneva, people have been waiting for the roadster version. Releasing it just one year after the 20-units limited-edition BC (Benny Caiola) seems a bit early, though. But hey, who am I to judge. More Pagani means more cars driving around! As Horacio Pagani would say: « The pursuit of beauty as a fundamental concept, an unbridled work of art, intelligence and open-air passion… »
Now what you all want to know: 764 hp. Slightly more than the Huayra, yet less than the more exclusive BC. Only 100 units will be built worldwide. Looks like Pagani are making more and more models, and much faster (I guess having that second factory helps there). If you’re not an existing client or have a big wallet, don’t even bother: they’re all sold out! The price of this little beast? 2,2 million euros, give or take.
If you’re wondering about the roof, you have two solutions: one is carbon fiber & glass, and the other one being more practical (you can actually take it off and store it in the car, contrary to the carbon fiber one). What a car… There are many new details that speak to me, mainly the new front & back grills, that seems completely redesigned with a new pattern. Another interesting detail is the mild roundish shapes in every extremity: wether above the exhaust or above the tail-lights, giving the car a far more aerodynamic look. They’ve made the engine slightly visible through a glass panel + 12 vents, reminding us of the german AMG V12 in there, begging to scream.
The engineers from Pagani have achieved something quite interesting: weighting 1218 kg, they’ve managed to make the roadster version lighter than the coupe (1360 kg – cabriolets are usually heavier because they need to work on more rigidity), mainly by using their carbo-titanium technology & Carbo-triax HP52 monocoque.
