Watch the 750HP Pagani Huayra BC Drift in the Arctic Circle
Supercars and snow generally don’t mix well, for obvious reasons, but on the odd occasion that they do, the results can be jaw-dropping to say the least. Italy’s Pagani Automobili recently sent its reborn supercar, the Pagani Huayra BC, deep into the Arctic Circle for extreme cold weather testing at Bosch’s Swedish proving grounds. A production crew came along for the ride and what they captured can only be described as art in motion. Take a look. RELATED: See More Photos of the 2017 Pagani Huayra BC
Though there’s surely a technical side to the frigid test runs—Pagani and Bosch are fine-tuning the Huayra BC’s antilock brakes and stability control systems—that doesn’t stop the Huayra from swinging its 750-horsepower tail wildly across a frozen lake and executing stunning drifts in the shrinking daylight.
Like the standard Pagani Huayra, the updated ‘BC’ boasts a massive twin-turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V12, but now it’s tuned to erupt over 750 horsepower from its twelve cylinders. And while both Huayra and Huayra BC generally look the same, Pagani says the pair only share one body panel—the roof.
The cost to buy one of these all-weather supercar monsters? About $2.5 million, that is, if there were any left. All 20 of the Pagani Huayra BCs were said to have been sold out before the car’s big reveal at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
