Pagani Huayra BC Sets Roadcar Record at Spa. In the Damp

Pagani Huayra BC Roadster takes Belgian road-car lap record

  • Culmination of 45,000 km of track development

  • 791 hp, V12-powered hypercar with open top


Pagani has gone hunting with the Huayra Roadster BC, setting a record and one of the greatest racetracks in the world as part of the car’s development validation testing. Putting the six prototypes to work in Belgium, covering more than 45,000 km on track and bringing home a record from Belgium.

The Spa Francorchamps circuit is one of the most fascinating to watch in the world. The longest on the Formula 1 circuit and home to the combination corners of Eau Rouge and Radillon, a dropping left-hander followed by a steep right-hand climb, and the ultimate challenge for drivers to see if they can handle it flat out before launching down the Kemmel straight.

In a six-minute video about the testing and validation process, Pagani shows off the Roadster BC in impressive detail inside and out. They also show what happens when there’s some time left over on the final day of testing and some eager test drivers.

Horacio Pagani gave the ok, and test driver Andrea Palma took the car for some ultimate performance laps.

On a damp circuit, the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC lapped the 7-km circuit in 2 minutes, 23.081 seconds, a time Pagani calls a record for “globally homologated road cars” for the circuit. Set with just two laps, and, again, we’ll point out that it was on a damp circuit.

It’s an impressive amount of development, covering more than 350,000 km in total, for a car they’re planning to build just 40 of. But that’s the attention to detail that has cemented Pagani’s reputation for hypercars.
