Pagani Huayra Roadster Debuts at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
The Pagani Huayra Roadster just made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The supercar is considered by its company founder Horacio Pagani as the most complicated project they ever had.
According to the Pagani website, it took the automaker six years to develop the high-performance auto. Check out the key features of the supercar below:
The Pagani Huayra Roadster is powered by a handcrafted Mercedes-AMG 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine. The unit produces 764 hp at 5,500 rpm and 100 Nm of torque from 2,300 to 4,300 rpm. All that power is distributed to the rear wheels via a single-clutch manual transmission seven-speed gearbox.
Pagani is yet to release the details about the zero to 62 mph acceleration time of the supercar. However, considering the roadster’s higher output than its 722 hp coupe version and its light frame, it is estimated to be able to achieve such feat in less than three seconds and a split-second faster than its roofed sibling.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster borrows many styling elements found in the Pagani Huayra coupe as well as the Pagani Huayra BC. The roadster may have a more rigid A-Pillar and some of its parts have been reinforced to make up for the absence of its fixed roofing, but it was successful in reducing its weight by 70 kg compared to the coupe.
The weight reduction of the roadster is thanks to its detachable rooftop that makes use of carbon and glass materials. In addition, the vehicle makes use of light monoque chassis.
Moreover, the roadster is fitted with a set of forged aluminum alloy app monolythic wheels measuring 20 inches and 21 inches for the front and rear, respectively. The wheels are wrapped in Pirelli tires.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster’s starting price is at €2.28 million or around $2.41 million. The cost is exclusive of taxes and delivery charges.
Only 100 samples of the supercar will be released in the market.
