Pagani has unveiled the latest Huayra Roadster to leave its factory during ‘The Quail – A Motorsport Gathering’ as part of Monterrey Car Week.
Officially dubbed the Huayra Roadster Gyrfalcon, the Italian hypercar takes its name from the largest of all falcon species that’s known as a fast and ferocious hunter. Appropriate for a car like the Huayra Roadster, then.
Unlike some special edition Paganis in the past which have received unique sames simply for the heck of it, the Roadster Gyrfalcon actually takes clear design inspiration from white gyrfalcons.
As such, most of its exterior is painted white like the bird’s feathers with elements of exposed carbon fiber reminiscent of the gyrfalcon’s spotted black wings. Last, but not least, the Huayra Roadster Gyrfalcon has bright yellow accents just as the bird of prey has yellow feet, a yellow beak and yellow around its eyes.
Taking inspiration from a bird and applying it to a supercar may sound strange, but it actually works surprisingly well.
No images offering a full view of the interior have been published, however the two close-up shots below also reveal that the car has yellow gyrfalcon graphics stitched into the leather door panels. Other blue, white, and yellow trimmings can also be seen throughout.
Introduced at 2017’s Geneva Motor Show, the Huayra Roadster is powered by a Mercedes-AMG 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 delivering 754 hp at 6200 rpm and more than 737.5 lb-ft (1000 Nm) of torque from 2400 rpm.
Remarkably, the Huayra Roadster is a hefty 80 kg (176 lbs) lighter than the Huayra Coupe, tipping the scales at just 1280 kg (2822 lbs).
