Pushing The Limits Of Engineering : The Pagani Huayra Roadster BC

Pagani shows a teaser image of their new Pagani Huayra Roadster BC on Facebook which has us all salivating

The shared image shows little more than the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC covered up with its headlights switched on. Although all but revealing, the words below the image “A tremendous science and design challenge” do serve in reminding us that this is no ordinary drop-top Pagani, if there ever was such a thing…

Based on the Pagani Huayra BC, the ultimate Huayra, the Roadster takes the concept of lightweight construction and the concept of the power to weight ratio to the next level. The Coupe BC is extremely light but the trick is that the Roadster is even lighter. This is unheard of and the reason for the “A tremendous science and design challenge” statement.

Pagani has achieved this in part through the use of a new material called carbon triax which is lighter and stronger than “regular” carbon fibre. It’s probably not cheaper though… The Coupe BC is about 175lb lighter, at 2,645lb, than the Pagani Huayra Roadster which means that the Roadster BC may tip the scale at no more than 2,600lb!

Oh, and about the power part: The Pagani Huayra Roadster BC will be powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 good for more than 745-horsepower and 811 lb.-ft. of torque.

If you have to ask, Pagani will probably ask well in excess of $2.5 million. Lucky for you, only 100 will be built so they might be sold out before you raise your hand…
