New details on the upcoming Pagani Huayra Roadster have emerged as the model in question is believed to be introduced sometimes next year.
Pagani has been denying the development of a Huayra Roadster but that doesn’t mean that the model won’t be hitting the production line and it seems that more and more reports with it keep ending up on the web weekly. According to the newest one, the new supercar will be actually lighter than the Coupe by 100 pounds and it will also be more powerful, by 20 HP. The announcement has been made by Horacio Pagani, the company’s founder, who has recently spoken to the guys from Top Gear.
The newest addition to the Pagani lineup will be produced in just 100 units and this will be extremely expensive, considering the fact that exclusivity pays. The Pagani Huayra Roadster should be officially presented to the public in 2016, during the Geneva Motor Show, and the carmaker will not be stopping here as it is believed to bring a more hardcore version of the current Huayra Coupe, along with a similar Zonda.
The regular version of the Pagani Huayra has been in production since 2012 and this is put together in Modena, Italy, being designed by Horacio Pagani. The model has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, being powered by a Mercedes-AMG bi-turbo 6,0 liter V12 engine, connected to a 7-speed sequential transmission. The unit is rated at 730 HP (539 kW) and 1,000 Nm (740 lb-ft) of torque.
