Start the New Year off right.
We’re only three months away from the official live reveal of the highly anticipated Pagani Huayra Roadster at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, but today we have something that’ll temporarily satisfy your craving for twin-turbo V12 open top goodness. GTSpirit has gotten a hold of a purportedly leaked image of the Huayra Roadster and we very much like what we’re seeing. Take note of the more dramatic taillights, which appear to be more aerodynamic than those on the coupe. There’s also a different diffuser and redesigned side skirts.
We’ve previously seen a couple of spy images of the topless Huayra testing, but we couldn’t quite tell whether it was an automated folding hard top or, as we expect, a simple removable roof panel. We’re still going with the latter simply because it makes sense in terms of cutting weight. Pagani itself has also begun teasing its latest model with a couple of images. We were sent a Season’s Greetings holiday card not long ago, showing the Huayra Roadster from the top. The second teaser image is also a slightly camouflaged view, this time from the front. We haven’t confirmed but highly suspect the Huayra coupe’s AMG-built twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 with 720 hp and will remain.
Heck, we wouldn’t be shocked to learn if Pagani boosted power as well. Remember, the Huayra BC, which debuted last year at the same venue, produces a grand total of 789 hp and 737 lb-ft of twist. Point being is that it's already proven this engine is capable of more power. We’re expecting more details to keep coming in over the next several weeks, so stay tuned.
