Pagani’s upcoming hardcore edition of the Huayra will likely be named after Benny Caiola, an avid car collector that passed away back in April 2010.

Spotted without any sort of camouflage last weekend in Sicily, the meaner Huayra is going to wear the “BC” suffix once it will go official at the Geneva Motor Show in March. While some suggested the letters stand for “bare carbon”, it seems the car will receive its name after Benny Caiola. He was a major Ferrari collector, but he also had a soft spot for Paganis. As a matter of fact, he sent company founder Horacio Pagani a letter back in 2000 to express his appreciation for the Zonda and together with the letter he attached a check for $1,000 for Pagani’s mechanics.

Getting back to the car at hand, it will come with a significantly more aerodynamic body and is expected to go on a diet compared to the regular Huayra that weighs 3,064 pounds (1,390 kilograms). These upgrades will likely be matched with an uprated AMG V12 6.0-liter churning more power than the current configuration of 730 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

Details about the Pagani Huayra BC’s performances are not available at this point, but expect these to eclipse the regular model which hits 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.3 seconds.

We will have all the details at the beginning of March when Pagani will finally show the car in Geneva.
