If you’ve never heard of either it’s time to brush up on your fanboy hours because you should at least know that Italian exotic sports car maker Pagani is getting ready to deliver to Geneva a hardcore special edition of its Huayra model.
The model has been caught out in the wild last weekend in Sicily wearing no camouflage at all – and it will have the BC suffix added once it makes its official worldwide public premiere during the Geneva Motor Show this upcoming March. And while reports have been trying to figure out the meaning of the two letters – going for “bare carbon” for example, it appears from the latest report it will actually wear the initials in homage to Benny Caiola, a renowned car collector who died back in April 2010. This avid collector had a love for anything Italian – Ferraris especially and also a soft spot for Pagani’s models. It appears that back in 200 he sent a letter to company founder Horacio Pagani to give thanks for the Zonda along with a check of $1,000 for his dedicated mechanics.
As we can see, the Huayra BC will get an enhanced aerodynamic kit while also being expected to have passed by the nutritionist’s office for a diet prescription – even though the standard Huayra wasn’t all that fat at 3,064 pounds (1,390 kilograms). Anyways, the BC will also sport a refreshed iteration of the AMG V12 6.0-liter sporting an increase of power over the current 730 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.
