If you love speed and style, the new Pagani Huayra Roadster BC is faster and sleeker than previous versions. Pagani recreated the design and performance of the car for a new experience. The car is priced around $3.4 million and there will only be 40 models available.
Pagani hails the BC models as “tributes to scientific research, beauty, and uniqueness.” They add to the already impressive Huayra models by reducing weight, increasing power, increasing aero, and adding new details that differentiate it to other like vehicles on the market. The Roadster BC weighs 2,756 pounds, which is less than the 2,976-pound standard Huayra coupe and 2,922-pound regular Huayra Roadster, but heavier than the 2,685-pound Huayra BC coupe.
Pagani makes up for the weight difference by adding more power to the Roadster BC with a bespoke unit developed by Mercedes-AMG that Pagani calls “completely new.” The Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 in the BC coupe was rated at more than 750 horsepower and 738 lb-ft. The Pagani twin-turbocharged V12 in the Roadster BC is rated at 791 horsepower at 5900 rpm and 774 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. That power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed XTrac transverse automatic transmission with an electromechanical differential. The Roadster BC also has a new titanium 6-pipe exhaust setup with two extra outlets from the catalytic converters.
The Roadster BC was made to handle sharp turns and corners, too. Underneath, it has a monocoque made of ultra-light and super-strong carbo-triax HP62 and carbo-titanium HP62 G2 with front and rear tubular steel subframes. The suspension is set up with forged aluminum alloy independent double wishbones, helical springs, and electronically controlled shock absorbers. It sits on forged monoblock aluminum-alloy wheels (20-inch in the front, 21-inch in the back), which are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires (265/30 in front, 355/25 in back). Pagani claims the Roadster BC can handle more than 1.9 g of lateral force during constant running, with peak readings of up to 2.2 g.
In order to maintain its level of performance and a balanced temperature, Pagani gave the Roadster BC a new car body design. It features a redesigned wing, tweaked inlets, and a new aerodynamics kit. Pagani states it generates up to 1,102 pounds of downforce at 174 mph.
