This may even be the final Huayra variant.
Given Pagani's tendency to release brand-new Zonda models (several years after the car has been discontinued), it seems hard to imagine the Huayra is about to be replaced. But Pagani has already been seen testing what looks like an even more hardcore version of the BC Roadster, which is expected to be the final Huayra variant.
Pagani says this new model will make its debut at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, helping to keep the Huayra fresh until an all-electric hypercar arrives in 2024. To prepare for the reveal, Pagani just posted a teaser of the new car looking menacing under a black cover.
Pagani didn't release a lot of information along with the teaser, only a caption that read, "A tremendous science and design challenge." This new model is expected to be an evolution of the BC Roadster, which was revealed back in 2017. The BC Roadster is already impressive with a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 764 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque. And with only 2,816 pounds of dry weight to haul around, the car is extremely agile.
More power hardly seems necessary, but this new variant is expected to produce even more grunt while likely reducing weight even further. It isn't known if Pagani will continue to use the same seven-speed single-clutch automatic transmission, which now feels outdated compared to faster dual-clutch units.
The Pagani Huayra BC Roadster starts at a whopping $2,410,188, and we wouldn't expect this new model to be any less expensive. "Before the Huayra is finished, we will show the Huayra BC Roadster this summer. I can’t go into full details just yet but I’m very excited about it,” Horacio Pagani told CarBuzz back at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Since this might be a swansong for the Huayra, we expect to see Pagani pull out all of the stops on this one.
