Thailand supercar owners and to really make a statement of your love, we suggest to dazzle at the new Pagani and hope you enjoy and embrace, if there’s anything we can come to closer to hugging a vehicle or marrying one – this model is it. Our TopGear UK team, reviewed a new Paganis, valued at ฿139 million baht, yes that’s £3.7m) for the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC.
Equipped with an all-new 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 specially designed for Pagani by AMG, whose engines have powered all of Pagani’s cars. Special-edition super cars aside, this V12 AMG make is bespoke to the Pagani, future-proofing twelve cylinders for years to come.
“It’s a thumper too; there’s 791bhp and 774lb ft for the bespoke Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R rear tyres to deal with. The engine is still housed mid-ship, behind the driver’s head feeding an Xtrac seven-speed automated manual transmission with electro-hydraulic actuation and carbon fibre synchronisers.”
It’s all about the Carbon fibre, especially if you’re a carbon freak, the Huayra Roadster BC uses a completely new composite of carbon for even more stiffness and lighter weight, bringing the overall weight to 1,250kg. The huge advances in aero and cooling, the premise of the design was to create a special aspiration to an aeroplane wing, mimicking it in fact, all the better to manage airflow and scalping the roof off automatically hinders downforce.
This topless design creates a seemingly natural 500kg of downforce at 174mph while maintaining a ground clearance that will allow passengers to enjoy driving at it’s finest on the road. The titanium six-exhaust pipe system that directs to of these pipes from the catalytic converters down under the car to the diffuser to exploit the benefits of a blown diffuser and generate further downforce, allowing for lateral acceleration of 1.9g during constant running speed, with peaks of 2.2g and a longitudinal deceleration of 2.2G.
But the Huayra Roadster BC isn’t for the faint hearted and built for serious appreciation. Previously the Huayra rocked up at £800k (nearly four times an Aventador at the time) and was seen as pricey?
The Roadster BC has a sticker price of £3.7m, a converted price from pound to thai baht that’s nearly 139 million thb excluding any import tax. But the appreciation of cars like this has continued to grow, attracting high-value, low-profile customers like you wouldn’t believe. And the run of 40 is already accounted for. Any takers in our neck of the woods, the Huayra Roadster BC is calling.
