Horacio Pagani and his team of artists rarely deny a customer’s demands. As long as the finished product is in the best interests of art and performance, your wishes will become a reality. In order to offer a starting point for their latest hypercar, the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC configurator offers endless possibilities.
On Saturday we were honored to display the first Huayra Roadster at Cars & Coffee Tampa. All 100 examples sold out immediately, with the final cars being delivered a few weeks ago. As is normally the case, Mr. Pagani compiled a series of improvements that could make it better, but they would be best executed with a new foundation.
As a race-ready roadster, this new model starts with a stronger chassis. Instead of titanium infused carbon fiber, the entire car is carbon-triax. The patented material is 50% lighter and 20% stronger than its predecessor. Working with AMG, horsepower is up to 755 with 811 lb-ft of torque. Xtrac developed a new 7-speed sequential to handle the power.
No detail was overlooked, as exhaust flaps open to fill the aerodynamic voids ahead of the diffuser. All this was done to pay respect to Pagani’s first customer. Benny Caiola believed Horacio could conquer the world, so his full deposit was given in cash to help the artist build his first car. Only 40 examples of the Roadster BC will be offered, so strike while the iron is hot.
