New Pagani Huayra Roadster to make debut at Geneva Motor Show

The Huayra Roadster project began in 2010 alongside the idea of a Huayra coupe, with a removable roof and conventional doors. Pagani says that the roadster is 52 per cent stiffer than the coupe and that's a big achievement.

The essential shape and design cues have been taken from the gullwing coupe version, yet the folks at Pagani say that it has applied lessons learned from creating the hard-core Huayra BC in building the roadster. Pagani lists the Huayra Roadster at € 2,280,000, or roughly $2.4 million United States dollars.

The Roadster also benefits from Pagani's latest suspension design, with parts forged from a lightweight aluminum alloy called Hi-Forg, designed specially for this auto, which Pagani says resulted in suspension pieces 25 percent lighter than in the Huayra coupe.

Every hypercar from this boutique company would be equally at home on display at MoMA as it would lapping Monza, but for his latest creation company founder and chief designer Horacio Pagani may well have set a new benchmark for a vehicle that's equal parts art and racing science.

What you are looking at above is the all-new Pagani Huayra Roadster and we completely understand if you can't stop gazing at it. The roadster has been redesigned for improved aerodynamics, with a new rear diffuser and wider wheel arches, along with a new air intake and splitter. The company is still to release performance figures for its new model, but expect it to accelerate from 0-62mph in a shade over 3 seconds and boast a top speed of over 220mph.

The major change in the roadster is the roof. The front and rear substructures are made from steel tubing.

The Huayra Roadster comes with a choice of two roofs - fabric or a lightweight carbon version with a central glass element - which can be stored inside when not in use.

Like the Huayra coupe, the new roadster version uses a AMG-developed V12 petrol engine with two turbochargers. The 6 litre V12 has been designed and built specifically for Pagani. The twelve-cylinder engine delivers a power of 764 HP at 6200 RPM, with 1000 NM torque available at 2400 RPM. Gear shifts are done by an Automac-tuned ECU, and a Bosch limited-slip differential is also present to keep all that mad power in control. Overall, Pagani claims the gearbox is 40 percent lighter than the previous unit used in first-generation Huayras. Brembo brakes - six-piston front and four-piston rear - haul the supercar down, and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires help it achieve an astounding 1.8g of lateral grip.
