Pagani Huayra Roadster has been five years in the making and has finally been revealed at 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It receives distinctive exterior design elements, among which is its roof.
This roof is offered in two options, one of which is a lightweight carbon with central glass as is also seen on the Porsche Carrera GT while the other is a fabric and carbon cover.
Weight reduction to the extent of 80 kgs is seen on the Huayra Roadster as compared to its coupe counterpart taking total weight to 1,280 kgs. This weight reduction is due to the extensive use of carbon titanium composite called Carbo-Triax HP 52 which not only contributes to a lighter weight but also to 52% added stiffness. An aluminum alloy called Hi-Forg is used to construct suspension setup thereby reducing weight by 25%.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster receives Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with 380x34mm discs and 6 piston calipers on the front and 380×34 discs with 4 piston calipers at the rear. It sits on Pirelli tyres measuring 20” in front and 21” at the rear while ESP is offered in 5 driving modes of Wet, Comfort, Sport, Race and ESC Off.
This new roadster gets powered by a Mercedes AMG M158 12 cylinder engine using twin turbochargers. This engine produces 764hp power at 6,200 rpm and 1,000 Nm torque at 2,400 rpm mated to a new 7 speed AMT gearbox from X-Track. Though the company has not revealed any performance figures, it is estimated that the new Huayra Roadster can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 3 seconds.
