Pagani Huayra Bids Farewell As It Enters Final Production Phase

pagani huayra

The final Pagani Huayra coupe is entering production, which means this would be the last time we’re going to see an inch of the sports car. The Italian luxury carmaker will finish the final iteration of the Huayra in about two months, reports from duPont Registry said recently.

This final car is the 100th example of the Huayra. Yes, there’s exactly 100 Huayras out there. You just don’t know it since these are obviously owned by the rich and famous. Like the previous 99 models, the final Huayra will feature a Mercedes-AMG built 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.

It makes sense for Pagani to end the coupe’s run after seven years. Pagani inked an agreement for the supply of AMG engines for just 100 units, which signals this 100th example of the Huayra. Remember that the first supercar was launched in 2011 as a follow-up to the equally capable Zonda.

The final Huayra, marking the last AMG unit to be delivered from the German automaker, will be called the “Il Ultimo.” This will be especially produced and dedicated to Brett David, the chief executive officer of Prestige Imports. As such, it will have a “German flare” in honor of the hypercar’s AMG-sourced engine.

To further bring acknowledgement to its German roots, the final Huayra will bear the livery colors on Lewis Hamilton’s F1 car, a Mercedes. On the Huayra, the color scheme is stunning and jaw-dropping. It used subdued gray as the primary hue and turquoise-aqua will be used for interior striping, the mirrors, and the tire sidewalls. The interior will receive a similar treatment. Turquoise and gray colors will cover the dashboard, the doors, and the center console. The seats will be covered in white leather.

Pagani CEO and founder Horacio Pagani made it clear that Pagani is going to continue. It’s just the Huayra that’s going to make its farewell. The car’s successor will “embody pure driving,” will not rely on electrification, and will still have a manual transmission.

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:

Engine

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.

Design

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.

Pricing

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.

Exclusivity

Only 100 samples of the supercar will be released in the market.
