Six years ago, Pagani unveiled the Huayra and stunned everyone, and they’ve done the same thing at the Geneva Motor Show, but not a standard one – the roadster edition. And it’s beyond stunning.
Usually, roadsters and convertibles end up being heavier than the hardtop versions, but not in the case of the Huayra Roadster. The Huayra Roadster is 176 pounds lighter, thanks to the carbon-titanium chassis and the lighter HiForge suspension. Every single piece in this car has been modified for the roadster specification.
The Mercedes-AMG engine has been upgraded, and produces 753-horsepower with over 738 pound-feet of toque. The hardtop “only” managed to produce 720 horsepower. The V12 biturbo unit has been tweaked for better throttle response, says Pagani. The gearbox has been upgraded, to a X-Trac seven-speed automatic manual, instead of a dual-clutch.
You get two roof systems for the Roadster. You get a detachable hardtop made from carbon fiber and glass, whereas the other one is a fabric soft-top.
The Roadster is priced at $2.4million, and only 100 units were being produced, which have all been sold, already.
