THE PAGANI HUAYRA ROADSTER BC IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL NEW HYPERCAR
The Pagani Huayra has been the poster child for the Pagani brand and for hypercar decadence for a while now. Replacing the equally outrageous Zonda, the Huayra is a definitive evolution of what makes Pagani, Pagani. The BC pushed the limits of the Huayra even further, adding more power and taking away weight to stretch its insane ideology to new limits. After inspiration from a very cherished customer who ordered their own roadster and much demand from other customers, the Huayra Roadster BC is now officially entering production.
Let's start with the specs for the BC Roadster. The twin-turbo V12 has been revised to make even more power thanks to new turbochargers, a hydroformed intake manifold, twin throttle bodies and four water-to-air intercoolers to make sure things don't get too volcanic. This new V12 delivers 800 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 774 lb-ft of torque from 2,000-5,600 rpm. The Roadster BC still uses Pagani's single clutch transmission system which has now been made lighter for quicker shifts.
So we have heaps of power and no roof to enjoy all twelve cylinders of the Mercedes built V12. That's the driver's own sense of pleasure and sensory overload covered, but there's two sides to every hypercar. I believe that by definition, hypercars should be as insane to behold from the sidewalk as they are to experience from the driver's seat. Pagani has always been able to deliver on this front with interest, but the Huayra BC Roadster looks more special than the rest.
I feel an analogy coming on, so let me digress for a moment. I have been fortunate enough to see Notre Dame before the fire that sadly consumed its roof. Stepping up to and walking through main entry to the historic cathedral, I noticed the details of the sculptures. The exterior of the building is covered with arches housing smaller arches, which then have their own individual carvings of priests and patrons from a bygone era. The rampant complexity of the design is gorgeous, and the Huayra BC Roadster contains a lot of those ideas.
Looking at pictures of the Roadster you can take in all of the fine details put into both the exterior and interior. With or without the roof in place, the silhouette of the Roadster is pure Pagani. Vents and intakes are festooned around the flanks, guiding air in and around the car. What l take the most interest in are the interior aesthetics and the engine bay.
The interior is classic Huayra, the same parts future cyberpunk and classical design. With each piece of metal switchgear being made from individual pieces of aluminum, there's a sense of purpose with each bespoke piece. The complexity in design saturates your senses with the overindulgence and attention to detail the designers took. As with Notre Dame, needless detail after detail is put into every bit to make the Huayra feel special.
There's no easy way to say this so here it is. The Huayra Roadster BC will cost $3.5 million. Only 40 will be made and if there is someone who can afford the Roadster (and I highly doubt there is) I implore you to buy it. Give manufacturers a reason to keep pushing cars like these out. Even if the majority of us will have to watch from afar, drooling on phone and computer screens.
