Pagani Huayra BC Roadster To Be The Most Capable Variant To Date

We knew that a Pagani Huayra BC Roadster would be produced before the BC Coupe was even unveiled two years ago. Finally, our spy photographers have snapped a BC Roadster prototype undergoing testing for the very first time.

While the vehicle is still some way off from being finished, we understand that it will be the most capable Huayra to date. In fact, the ‘standard’ Huayra Roadster already benefits from parts and knowledge gained from the BC Coupe and is far more than a Huayra that’s simply had its roof cut off.

Like the hardtop, the Pagani Huayra BC Roadster will benefit from a more powerful 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine with potentially in excess of 800 hp. As the Huayra Roadster weighs a substantial 80 kg lighter than the original coupe, it’s reasonable to assume that the Huayra BC Roadster will be the lightest model to wear the Huayra badge. That means it’ll tip the scales at under 2645 lbs (1199 kg).

Power will be transmitted to the tarmac via a seven-speed automated manual transmission driving the rear wheels.

Time to sell a kidney

For the most part, this Huayra BC Roadster prototype doesn’t look all that different from the base model. In fact, the only real point of difference is a slightly more aggressive front bumper inspired by the BC Coupe. Neither the out-of-this-world carbon fiber rear diffuser or towering rear wing of the BC Coupe are featured but they may be incorporated into future prototypes and the production model.

Unsurprisingly, production of the BC Roadster will be extremely limited and as few as 20 examples are expected to be built for customers.

Unless the Italian company decides to follow up the BC Roadster with a selection of one-offs, it could very well be the final iteration of the Huayra. Horacio Pagani has already confirmed that a successor to the Huayra is in development with a twin-turbocharged AMG engine and the option of a manual transmission. The marque is also developing an all-electric vehicle to arrive in roughly seven years.

    Fantastic. I’d love to see Pagani expand with new models: the Zonda has definitely peaked and the Huayra seems too refined and luxurious to become hardcore. I wouldn’t mind a superlight, stripped-out supercar, dramatic as always but more…exploitable.

    It speaks volume of how beautiful this car is when it looks this good in camo!

  • Honestly original Huayra looks better to me, don’t get me wrong BC is a good car but the aero enhancement kinda ruin the lines.
