First, it puts an end to the rule that convertibles or “targa” models are heavier than their closed counterparts. Based on the experience gained during the development of radical Zonda R and Huayra BC, Pagani lost 70 kg to the Huayra Roadster. This is possible thanks to the use of an ultra-light aluminum in the trains.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster uses carbo-titanium and the “carbo-Triax HP52” for its monocoque chassis. These materials allow the convertible to be 52% stiffer than the coupe. While being lighter with a dry weight of 1280 kg. This mass is propelled by a V12 6.0 l biturbo Mercedes in central position rear of 764 ch at 6200 rpm and 1000 Nm at 2400 rpm.
Just like the coupe, there is under the convertible top an original AMG engine specially developed for the Huayra. The result is a powerful 6.0-liter, 764-horsepower V12 with a phenomenal torque of 737 lb.-ft. that goes directly to the rear wheels. Although this is a defect on the Huayra, it comes back with a transmission with a simple seven-speed clutch.
New lightweight suspensions are also part of the range, as well as Brembo ceramic brakes (380×34 mm 6 pistons at the front, 380×34 mm 4 pistons at the rear), Pirelli PZero Corsa tires developed for the car (21 inches At the front, 20 at the back) and able to collect up to 1.8 G of lateral force … All that for performances that one imagines stratospheric ... but that Pagani still reserves to reveal!
