Should we have expected anything less from Pagani?
Turning a coupe into a convertible is typically not an engineering challenge. Sure, cutting off the roof does require work, but a lot of automakers won't completely turn such projects into major spectacles. But Pagani is not your typical automaker. The boutique hypercar company will be revealing its much anticipated Huayra Roadster at Geneva this March and, aside from a few selected clients, no one outside of Pagani has seen the car in the flesh; teaser images will have to do, and Pagani has just revealed yet another one.
This time, however, the image comes with a statement directly from Horacio Pagani himself. "This is the most complicated project we have ever undertaken," Pagani declared. Remember, this is the man whose genius we see in previous masterpieces such as the Zonda Revolucion, Zonda R and, for that matter, every Pagani car to date. But if Horacio Pagani himself is declaring the Huayra Roadster to be at this level of sophistication, then it only makes us even more excited for a car that we were already stoked to see. Word has it from the lucky few who've been given a sneak preview is that its specifications are nothing short of astonishing and its redone styling lines are amazing.
Power is expected to come from the Huayra coupe's AMG-built 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12, which produces a total of 720 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. Will these numbers increase for the Roadster? Based on what we're hearing, don't be surprised if that'll be the case. We'll be on hand at Geneva for the big reveal and we'll bring you any updates we receive in the meantime.
