The mental Pagani Huayra BC which is named after the Italian hypercar maker’s first ever customer Benny Caiola has made its world premiere at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The newest Pagani incorporates several new mechanical components to have a completely different character compared to the existing Huayra Coupe.
The Huayra BC continues to employ the 6.0-litre V12 AMG engine but it is claimed to develop more than 750 PS. The car also gets a brand new Xtrac 7-speed AMT gearbox with electronic active differential both of which were developed form scratch. The company says that this new combo achieves a 40% weight saving compared to a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The suspension components are made of HiForg, a high strength lightweight aeronautic aluminium alloy which results in weight saving of up to 25% compared to the regular Huayra Coupe’s suspension components. Braking is courtesy of carbon ceramic discs from Brembo. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged alloy wheels come wrapped in Pirelli Corsa tyres that are specially developed for the car.
The tech-laden Pagani Huayra BC hypercar is packed with Bosch ESP system with a new “Track” driving mode in addition to the existing “Comfort” and Sport”. The Italian automobile also features advanced traction control system, and active aerodynamics.
While it’s instantly recognizable as a Huayra, the BC is claimed to have no single common body panel with the regular Coupe save for the roof. The interiors are appointed in black anthracite leather while the steering wheel is covered in suede leather for better grip. The mechanical park brake has been replaced by electronic one to save some weight.
