Pagani Huayra Roadster Slated To Debut Early 2016 At Geneva Motor Show

Earlier this week, we learned that Pagani has sold all 100 of its first-production Huayra supercars. However, If we’ve learned anything from the legendary Zonda, we have nothing to worry about. Whatever Pagani has in store for us next will be even greater.

According to Pagani, a brand-new Huayra Roadster version is slated to arrive as soon as March next year at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. As far as hardware is concerned, expect the Huayra Roadster to carry on the powerful 6.0-liter twin turbocharged V12 engine. The Mercedes-Benz AMG derived power unit produces 730 horsepower and is capable of motivating the standard Huayra from 0-62 mph in three seconds.

When the 2003 Pagani Zonda Roadster was first unveiled four years after the first standard Zonda, the Italian automaker promised no loss of performance in the drop top. In fact, the Pagani Zonda Roadster only gained 30 kilograms over the standard Zonda for safety and rigidity reasons. We expect a comparable weight gain for the Pagani Huayra Roadster.

As for the production number, there were only 40 examples of the Pagani Zonda Roadster ever made, which suggests the anticipated Huayra Roadster will be a limited edition affair as well. That said, Pagani later created evolutionary versions such as the Zonda Roadster F, Zonda Cinque Roadster, as well as one-off specials such as the Zonda Uno Roadster for Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Thani of Qatar.

Ultimately, the end of the standard Pagani Huayra production only spells the beginning of a whole range of future models, where each new variant will likely be lighter, faster, more expensive, and more coveted than the last. Stay tuned as we expect to hear more from Pagani in the months ahead!
