We haven’t heard much from Pagani for a while now. However, the radio silence is about the end as the Italo-Argentinian automaker teases us with something spectacular. It appears that we are getting a brand new version of the impressive automobile and it’s quite exciting. They’re calling it the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, which seem appropriate given that it’s a modern rework of the original. This hypercar is set to blow past the competition on the tracks and on the street.
The most obvious change with the latest iteration is the convertible configuration. It still flaunts the same form factor as its predecessor but comes with a slew of upgrades. Powering this sleek beast is a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine from the fine folks at Mercedes-AMG. The 2011 version already boasts impressive specs, to begin with. It produces 700 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 238 miles per hour. Meanwhile, the Huayra Roadster BC manages to deliver a jaw-dropping 791 horsepower and 774 lb-ft of torque this time around.
An Xtrac 7-speed transversal automated manual transmission with electro-mechanical differential governs the hypercar’s drivetrain department. When it comes to weight, the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC is 70 pounds lighter at 2,756 pounds. Transferring all that power to the ground are bespoke aluminum alloys with Pirelli Zero Trofeo R tires. Stopping power comes from a set of Brembo brake units. This is a rare opportunity for collectors to own one of the 40 examples that will be available. As long as the $3.5 million price tag is not a prohibitive figure for you.Only from Pagani
