Italian supercar manufacturer, Pagani, announced and confirmed on Saturday that the all-new Pagani Huayra would be getting a removable roof version. The company announced that the new supercar would debut at the Geneva Auto Show. A splitter similar to the aero package found in the Huayra Tempesta would also be featured on the new supercar.
The Huayra Roadster Gets A Mercedes-AMG Engine
The Pagani Huayra Roadster would be similar to the Zonda Roadster in terms of power. It would be equipped with the same Mercedes-AMG 6.0liter twin turbo V12 engine. Enthusiasts are anticipating that the Huayra Roadster's power output would be slightly better than the Huayra BC's 720 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque.
No More Gullwing Doors For The Roofless Version
The weight of the Pagani Huayra Roadster would significantly be lessened and could help the car produce at least 789 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. However, removing the roof would mean that the Huayra's famous gullwing doors would have to be removed. In addition, buyers can also get a detuned version of the Roadster that would produce 720 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, similar to the coupe version.
Aside from having a removable roof, the Pagani Huayra Roadster would feature a number of air vents to increase engine cooling. New extended taillights can be found on the revised rear and thin strips of daylight running LEDS up front. The rear diffuser would also be getting a new design. Rumors say that Pagani would produce only 1000 of the Huayra Roadster.
Keeping The Weight Low
Pagani will use a single-clutch seven-speed sequential transmission on the Huayra Roadster. The single clutch design would help in keeping the vehicle's weight as low as possible, instead of using a heavier dual clutch system. The Pagani Huayra Roadster would debut at the Geneva Auto Show that starts on March 7.
