Pagani’s main display at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 is the brand new Pagani Huayra Roadster. Five years in the making, the Huayra Roadster is Pagani’s latest and greatest. Considering the amount of work the Italian hypercar manufacturer put into the design process, it would have been rude to pass up an up-close look at this topless beauty!
The key design element of the car is the Pagani Huayra Roadster’s roof. There are two options. The first is a lightweight carbon too with a central glass element, similar in style to the Porsche Carrera GT. The second is a fabric and carbon cover which can be installed easily in the event of an emergency.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster continues to use the Mercedes-AMG M158 engine. The twelve-cylinder unit uses twin-turbochargers to produce 764 hp at 6,200 rpm, with a torque of over 1000 Nm available from 2,400 rpm. It has full EURO 6b and Carb environment regulations.
It is coupled to a new seven-speed AMT gearbox developed by X-Track. It uses a hydraulic and electronic activation system with carbon synchronizers. Bosch developed a new ECU and electronic differential for increased drivability while the entire system weighs 40% less than the standard dual-clutch gearbox.
