Latest Pagani Huayra Roadster Named After The Fastest And Most Ferocious Falcon

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).

There’s a new Roadster on the block 😳😳🙌🏻🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    Last production model roadster, sure, but that doesn’t take customer commissioned one offs into account. You’ll see more of these for awhile.

    Cars can be art and this Huayra is the ultimate proof. It looks like a Renaissance painting, and it wouldn’t look out of place in the Uffizi Gallery.

    The Gyrfalcon may be the bigger, but its the Peregrine Falcon that the fastest animal known to have existed.

    The “last one” already?? So they built all 100 in a little over a year. That seems odd considering how many years it took to build all the coupes. Bring on the BC I guess.
