Pagani Huayra Roadster BC breaks cover and looks glorious

Pagani is a maker of some of the most exotic of all hypercars. It has a new ride that only the ultra-wealthy will get to enjoy called the Huayra Roadster BC. The hypercar has a carbo-titanium HP62 G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 monocoque with front and rear tubular steel subframes. Power for the car comes from a V12 engine.

The engine has 36 valves and displaces 5980 cc with twin turbos strapped on. Mercedes AMG developed the engine exclusively for Pagani. The twin-turbo V12 makes 590 kw at 5,900 rpm and 1050 nm of torque between 2,000 and 5,600 rpm.

The car is rear-wheel drive and uses an Xtrac 7-speed AMT with electro-mechanical differential. Stopping power for the Huayra Roadster BC is from Brembo ventilated CCM disc brakes. Front brakes are 398 x 36mm rotors with 6-piston monolithic calipers. Rear brakes are 380 x 34mm with 4-piston monolithic calipers.

The car rolls on APP forged monolithic aluminum alloy wheels are 20-inches in the front and 21-inches in the rear. The wheels are shod with sticky Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires measuring 265/30 R20 front and 355.25 R21 rear. Pagani uses forged aluminum alloy independent double-wishbone suspension with helical springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers.

Thanks to the use of lightweight materials, the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC tips the scales at 1,250 kg. Pagani says that the car was created using the latest technologies derived from its track experience. It promises the car is extremely capable on track but easy for people to drive and master in a few miles. Dropping the top also claims not to affect performance. Production is 40 units total at $3.5 million each.
