The upcoming Pagani Huayra BC Roadster has been caught on film for the very first time, albeit only briefly.
While filming in Italy recently, YouTuber effspot stumbled upon a camouflage BC Roadster prototype bathed in camouflage and testing near the company’s factory.
In April, our own spy photographers snapped a separate BC Roadster prototype undergoing tests. What makes this latest prototype particularly interesting is the fact that it’s adorned with the same rear wing as the BC Coupe whereas the car spotted in April lacked this wing.
Yet another masterpiece from Pagani is coming
Typically, droptop variants of supercars are slightly slower and heavier than their coupe counterparts. The opposite is expected to be true for the Huayra BC Roadster. As it stands, the existing Huayra Roadster is a substantial 80 kg (176 lbs) lighter than the Huayra Coupe. Consequently, the BC Roadster should probably be even lighter than the BC Coupe and weigh under 1199 kg (2645 lbs).
Power for the Italian supercar will come from a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine with upwards of 800 hp. Alongside further refinements to the vehicle’s chassis and transmission, it should prove the most capable road-going Pagani ever produced.
Production of the car will be limited to just 20 units. In typical Pagani fashion, all 20 are said to be have been sold.
