Take Another Look At The Next Hardcore Pagani Huayra Variant

Two new images and a video of the next Pagani Huayra variant have surfaced on social media.

A single image of the vehicle we shared with you last week offered a glimpse of the hardcore hypercar, but these new photos provide us with an even better view of the overhauled bodywork – and it does look like a Huayra BC on steroids.

At the front, this camouflaged prototype appears to be outfitted with a more prominent splitter than the one on the Huayra BC. Additionally, there appears to be a pair of newly-designed side skirts as well as a drastically different rear end.

Look at the roof and who’ll notice a huge scoop gulping in air for the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 developed by AMG. Directly behind the roof scoop is a central fin, similar to that featured on a selection of one-off Pagani Zonda 760 models. The aerodynamic modifications are completed with a new rear wing, small fins over the taillights, and a gargantuan rear diffuser.

If Pagani has gone to this much trouble to modify the aerodynamics of the Huayra, it’s quite possible that it has also tuned the engine. In C guise, the V12 delivers 745 hp and 811 lb-ft (1100 Nm) of torque, but with some new components, getting close, or even exceeding, 800 hp should be feasible.

It remains to be seen whether it’s a one-off commissioned by a customer much like the Zonda 760 RS before it, or a production model. Pagani generally likes to unveil new models and variants during March’s Geneva Motor Show but, for the 2019 edition, we expect to see the Huayra BC Roadster released. Consequently, the hypercar pictured here may not launch until much later this year, or in early 2020.

      The fact that you have a driveway puts you out of the running to own a car like this. You must have your private helicopter airlift it and lower it into your office on the 5th floor of your manor centered in your sprawling estate, nestled in the bosom of the fertile valley just north of your private reserve olive vineyard.

    its looks amazing, even with the camo

  • ztamg04

    that is still cool, although the endless stream of the same car wearing more expensive panels to bash is getting old. Pagani Zonda? 760RS?
