Feast Your Eyes on the Pagani Huayra Dragon

The Most Extreme Huayra

There were some spy shots and videos floating around the web of a new version of the Huayra from Pagani, but now there are some exclusive images of the upcoming car. The Pagani Huayra Dragon is the most advanced version of the car yet and has all of the features spied on the car in the spy shots. This is the next big thing for the company.

GT Spirit first shared the images of the Huayra Dragon, which we’ve included above and below. The car looks amazing with all kinds of special aerodynamic elements including a massive rear diffuser, a huge carbon fiber wing, and a flatter front splitter.

There are various vents and air outlets on the car that are not on previous versions of the Huayra. According to reports, Pagani will begin producing the Huayra Dragon once it is done building the 100 Huayra Roadsters. TopCar Design commissioned the Dragon from Pagani.

Official details for this car are scarce. However, you can bet the vehicle will have the twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine that the company sources from AMG. In Huayra BC form, that engine made 754 hp. It would make sense for Pagani to work on upgrading the engine in this model to produce more horsepower than that.

We’d love to see the car produce over 800 hp, but as of yet, there is no indication that is the case. Until official details come to light, enjoy the images included. 

Pagani C10: Huayra Successor to Get V12 Manual and Electric Version

The Geneva Motor Show 2019 set the stage for a huge amount of news. In the case of Pagani, while the 20 year anniversary of the Pagani Zonda took centre stage, it was clear that the Huayra’s successor is what they wanted to talk about. In an interview with Road & Track magazine, Horacio Pagani spilled a few details about the highly anticipated third generation hypercar!

Codenamed the C10 for the time being, Pagani are working on a 2021 launch date. Pagani revealed that plans are afoot to offer two versions. The first C10 will feature a V12 engine, a new unit sourced from Mercedes-AMG. These cars will have a manual gearbox as standard with the option of an automatic box. The second version is said to be fully electric.

The second version is said to come about through necessity. Pagani confirms that he has not had a request from owners or dealers. Nonetheless, Pagani believes that the time is right. Of course, the electric Pagani will require huge amounts of research and development. Pagani are aiming to offer something that combines lightweight performance with the visual art of its carbon fibre design.

Pagani also confirmed that there are no plans to hybridise the Pagani C10’s V12 engine. Instead, the company will work with Mercedes-AMG to ensure that it meets ever stringent emissions regulations. First, Pagani will unveil the Huayra BC Roadster, due to emerge during the summer!

One of Twenty Pagani Huayra BC For Sale in the US

Californian Pagani dealership, Pagani Newport Beach, has listed a Pagani Huayra BC for sale on JamesEdition. The hottest Pagani Huayra model to date is a sought after machine. Just 20 were built and, as you would expect with Pagani, each one was tailored to the customer’s taste.

This particular Pagani Huayra BC was number 2 of 20. It was one of the first delivered and has covered a mere 3,433 km since it was delivered. Originally based in San Francisco, we are told that it replaced a red standard Pagani Huayra when it was delivered. We can only assume that the owner has taken delivery of a Pagani Huayra Roadster, forcing the sale!

Since it was delivered, the Pagani Huayra BC has been spotted at various events around California. It is quite an attractive spec with blue carbon fibre the predominant body material with black carbon fibre accents for all of the important aerodynamic parts. The interior is pure black with silver stitching and the occasional red detail.

This is the first Pagani Huayra BC to emerge on the public market. Newport Beach have not ventured a sale price, however, we suspect that it will eventually sell for multiple millions.

By way of reminder, the Huayra BC features a 6.0 liter V12, twin turbocharged AMG engine with an extra 30 hp. It now produces 750 hp brake horsepower together with 1,000 Nm of torque.

Pagani Huayra Roadster prototype crashed into trees in Germany

Pagani has performed a successful, albeit unintended crash test with what appears to be an upcoming new version of the Huayra Roadster. According to the Stuttgarter Nachrichten newspaper, a 37-year-old driver lost control of the Pagani and crashed it into the trees.

Road & Track is reporting that the camouflaged vehicle was one of Pagani’s development cars, crashed last week by the Italian supercar manufacturer’s German partner. The company was happy to say that the car’s central monocoque performed “exceptionally as planned” and that the driver and passenger were uninjured. That’s always a good outcome, and development cars can be expected to lead a hard life. The German police’s assessment of “several hundred thousand Euros worth of damage” sounds about right.

The crash, which happened near Affalterbach and thus near the location of Pagani’s engine partner AMG, was the result of the test driver accelerating too quickly after slowing down at a road construction site – perhaps it was testing a new, powerful engine variant from AMG. The car ended up off the road and hit trees. Luckily the camouflage was a blocky and pixelated one instead of nature-colored, or the rescuers would undoubtedly still be looking for the twin-turbo V12 supercar among the German foliage…

The Pagani Huayra Roadster is legitimately different than the coupe

“I’m in love with the whole shape of it. Especially the fact that it doesn’t share any body panel with the Huayra Coupe but it’s still a Huayra.” – Horacio Pagani

Horacio Pagani is an obsessive. This trait manifested itself during his time as an engineer at Lamborghini, where he was responsible for the outrageous Countach Evoluzione, a 1987 concept that not only shaved an incredble 1,000 pounds off the weight of the standard Countach through the use of carbon fiber and Kevlar, but also became a rolling test bed for advanced systems like antilock brakes, four-wheel drive, and a computer-controlled adjustable suspension.

When Lamborghini wouldn’t follow his suggestion and purchase an autoclave for making production carbon-fiber parts, he left and founded his own company. In the promotional materials introducing his latest supercar, the $2.4-million Huayra Roadster, he claims inspiration from no less than Leonardo Da Vinci, who sweated the details “down to the most minute component of the design.”

His compulsion is evident everywhere in the new vehicle. But where does this infatuation find its deepest resonance? After he unveiled the new car at this week’s Geneva Motor Show, we stopped by to chat with Horacio, and he explained his car’s most belovedly maniacal details.

On the silhouette: “First of all, I’m proud of the car itself. It’s sculptured by the wind and it was the biggest and hardest challenge we’ve ever undertaken. I’m in love with the whole shape of it. Especially the fact that it doesn’t share any body panel with the Huayra Coupe but it’s still a Huayra, you can definitely recognize it, [which] testifies how much work has been involved into the project.

The engine: “Mercedes-AMG made the engine bespoke and together with us, this is quite an honor and something that makes me proud. It is truly something special to have one of the oldest and the most important car manufacturers in the world making an engine specifically for you.

Aero: “The active aerodynamic system also. We brought this technology into the automotive industry back in 2011 with the Huayra coupe, and I’m happy to see it applied by a lot of manufacturers all around the world nowadays in many different projects and type of cars.

Materials: “The carbon fiber and composite material in general have always been one of the key features in our projects. The Pagani Huayra Roadster is the first roadster lighter than the coupe thanks also to the carbo Triax HP52, a new type of composite material which is 52-percent stiffer than the one we used in Huayra Coupè.

Inside: “The interiors also give me smile every time I sit in them – and the fact you can drive it without the roof gives me goose-bumps. Italy is the most beautiful country, so I imagined the Huayra Roadster as the perfect companion for traveling this open-air museum.”

Official: Pagani Huayra Roadster, 100 Units all Sold Out

The Pagani Huayra Roadster has been officially unveiled ahead of its debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. It has taken quite some time for Pagani to remove the roof from its Huayra, the result is staggering.

Work on the Huayra Roadster actually began in 2010. Pagani reveal within the release information that the design was binned in 2013 and Horacio went back to the drawing board. Production of the Huayra Roadster is limited to 100 vehicles, all are sold. The base price is a staggering €2,280,000 plus VAT.

The key design element of the car is the Pagani Huayra Roadster’s roof. There are two options. The first is a lightweight carbon too with a central glass element, similar in style to the Porsche Carrera GT. The second is a fabric and carbon cover which can be installed easily in the event of an emergency.

The Pagani Huayra Roadster gets an aggressive front end, wider wheel arches and a redesigned roll bar. The Roadster is actually lighter than the Coupe with improved torsional rigidity of the frame. A new carbo-titanium composite material has helped create a 52% increase in stiffness. Dry weight is 1,280kg, about 80kg less than the Huayra Coupe.

The suspension assembly is made from a lightweight aluminum alloy, called HiForg, designed specifically for the Huayra Roadster. It achieves a 25% weight saving. Brembo brakes are uprated carbon ceramic (CCM) discs measuring 380×34 mm with 6-piston calipers in the front and 380×34 mm, 4-piston calipers at the rear. Unique Pirelli Piero Corsa’s are also redesigned and allow a lateral force of 1.8 G.

Pagani Huayra Roadster (21)

The Pagani Huayra Roadster continues to use the Mercedes-AMG M158 engine. The twelve-cylinder unit uses twin-turbochargers to produce 764 hp at 6,200 rpm, with a torque of over 1000 Nm available from 2,400 rpm. It has full EURO 6b and Carb environment regulations.

It is coupled to a new seven-speed AMT gearbox developed by X-Track. It uses a hydraulic and electronic activation system with carbon synchronizers. Bosch developed a new ECU and electronic differential for increased drivability while the entire system weighs 40% less than the standard dual-clutch gearbox.
