[update] Speaking to Autoblog, Pagani has confirmed the Huayra Roadster will be at Pebble Beach, following an online reveal a few days earlier.
A new report indicates Pagani will officially introduce the Huayra Roadster this August during the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.
Pagani recently came out with the Huayra BC at the Geneva Motor Show, but it seems the specialty marque is already putting the finishing touches on another model, the Huayra Roadster. Undisclosed sources within the company are saying the model is currently “in the final stages of development” and already 75 out of a total of 100 cars have been ordered.
Details concerning the model are not available at this point, but obviously it will be a tad heavier than the coupe due to the extra reinforcements which will add some bulk on top of the coupe’s 2,976 pounds (1,350 kilograms). Needless to say, the spectacular gullwing doors will make way for conventional doors and there could also be some other changes to the body to further set it apart from its fixed roof sibling.
The biturbo 6.0-liter V12 engine from Mercedes-AMG will likely be carried over with 730 horsepower (537 kilowatts) and 737 pound-feet (1,000 newton meters) of torque. The slightly increased weight will have a negative impact on performance, so the sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) will take a tad more than the coupe’s 3.3 seconds while the top speed will drop a bit from 230 mph (370 kph).
The recently introduced Huayra BC will also spawn a roadster version which according to the same source is due to come out in a couple of years. It will likely have all of the coupe’s upgrades, so expect more power, less weight, and better aerodynamics.
Until then, the “regular” Pagani Huayra Roadster will be unveiled at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 21, that is if the report turns out to be valid.
