It's now officially official.
Over the past several months we’ve been waiting for the official reveal of the Pagani Huayra Roadster. We first predicted that Pagani would make the big unveil at Pebble Beach last August. That didn’t happen. So we reached out to Pagani to seek some clarification. The response was kind of vague. We were told the Huayra Roadster would debut sometime before Geneva, possibly at an official ceremony at Pagani’s all-new production facility in Italy. But apparently that’s not happening.
Pagani’s Global PR and Communications chief, Luca Venturi, has now confirmed to CarBuzz that the Huayra Roadster will debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. Makes total sense considering Geneva has long been the venue for Pagani’s latest creations. In regards to the new Pagani’s specs, it’s fair to assume it’ll be powered by the same twin-turbo 6.0-liter AMG-built V12 with 720 hp as its coupe sibling. Top speed should be roughly the same too, at around 231 mph. Because it obviously won’t have a fixed roof, the gullwing doors will be replaced by conventional units.
As for the roof itself, a previous spy shot revealed that Pagani is going with a removable roof panel instead of an automated unit. We’ll bring you more details the moment we have them but rest assured, a new Pagani is coming in only a few months. That’s an occasion we can all certainly be thankful for.
