Just like any other special Pagani supercar, the upcoming Huayra Roadster is also going to be one of the main attractions of the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which opens its gates next month.
In fact, is going to be so special that only 100 customers will have the pleasure of taking it, for the asking price of whopping $2.41 million. Recently, the carmaker has presented the supercar ahead the year`s most important auto show.
As we can depict from the photos below, it is like looking at a photoshopped media gallery, the model looking mind-blowing with an ultra-futuristic design, highlighted by the lack of the top roof and exquisite transparent blue carbon finishes at the interior.
What is interesting about the chopped-off Pagani Huayra Roadster is that it is more lightweight than its coupe sibling, engineers managing to shed-off around 80 kg, for a total of 1,280 kg, thanks to the new composite materials involved, like carbon fiber and high-strength steel.
There are also plenty of mechanics that are fitted underneath the supercar. We are looking here at new Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with 380×34 mm discs and six-piston calipers up front, as well as 380×34 mm discs and four-piston calipers at the rear end.
The tires were also specifically-designed for the Huayra Roadster, meaning a new set of 20- and 21-inch front and rear respectively. The supercar`s driving modes have also been improved, meaning that drivers will get to enjoy the Wet, Comfort, Sport, Race and ESC Off modes.
The car`s roof also contribute to its increased aerodynamics and driving capabilities, the engineers offering to types – one with light carbon with central glass element, as well as a fabric and carbon cover.
As for the car`s massive engine, we are looking here at a 6.0-liter V12 sourced from Mercedes-AMG M158, with 754 horsepower and a whopping 1,000 Nm of torque, available at just 2,400 rpm. The engine also comes with a seven-speed automated manual transmission. The performance figures and full details will be revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
