Pagani has finally taken the wraps off the Huayra Roadster. The Roadster will make its debut at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show. Only 100 examples of the Huayra Roadsters will be made, each costing €2.28 million (approx. Rs 16.13 crore).

The Roadster was in development since 2010, but the Italian carmaker scrapped the design in 2013 and started the design process all over again. As a result, the new Huayra Roadster is a new project on its own. The Roadster loses the iconic Gull-wing doors but the chassis is developed using a new carbonfibre-titanium composite. Thus, the Huayra Roadster weighs just 1,280kg, 80kg less than the Huayra Coupe.

Making use of the expertise from the hardcore Huayra BC, the Roadster uses all the Active Aero system the exotic carmaker has on offer. The Roadster comes fitted with two types of roof. One is a carbon hard top with a central glass element which assumes the look of a coupe. The second type of roof is a fabric and carbon cover which can be stored inside the Roadster. According to the Italian carmaker, both the removable roofs are simple and quick to install. On the inside, the exotic beige leather is accentuated with carbon-fibre treatment all around, and contrast blue stitching. The drool-worthy interior comes with an exposed aluminium gear lever as well.

Power comes from the twin-turbo 6.0-litre Mercedes-AMG V12 producing 754bhp and a whopping 1000Nm of torque. All the madness is channelled through a transverse-mounted seven-speed AMT transmission sourced from the Huayra BC. Braking responsibilities are taken care by a 380mm and a 6-piston calliper in the front and 4-piston calliper at the rear developed by Brembo. Pirelli’s PZero Corsa tyres were co-developed with Horacio Pagani and are wrapped around 21-inch wheels in the rear and 20-inch upfront. We could see the Pagani Huayra Roadster in all its glory at the Geneva stage in March.
