The engineers at Pagani were able to shave some weight off by using lighter materials, such as carbon-titanium HP62 comprising the monocoque structure. "Seeing the Pagani Roadster BC's smooth and elegant racing on the streets of CSR2 is a triumphant amalgamation of science and art". The twin-turbo V12 makes 590 kw at 5,900 rpm and 1050 nm of torque between 2,000 and 5,600 rpm.
As with other Huayra variants, the engine is hooked up to a transverse-mounted single-clutch automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels via an electro-mechanical differential.
With the introduction of the Pagani Huayra Roadster and BC in recent years, it was only a matter of time before the Modenese put the two together. Front brakes are 398 x 36mm rotors with 6-piston monolithic calipers.
Equipped with a six outlet, titanium exhaust system, the BC rides on 14-spoke, forged APP alloy wheels measuring 20-inches at the front and 21-inches at the rear, wrapped in bespoke Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tyres said to have generated a lateral acceleration of up to 2.2 g during testing.
The new vehicle comes with an open top with a short, curved front hood and deep vents near each headlight, large air vents near the rear wheels and a high slim spoiler perched on the back.
According to Pagani, in 2017 "a demanding research project was launched with a meticulous, nearly obsessive focus on details and design in order to create a highly distinctive, street-legal Pagani hypercar that would combine the unparalleled sensations of driving a roadster with the most advanced technology available today". There's also double wishbone suspension at both ends, and electronically-controlled shocks. Dropping the top also claims not to affect performance. As for the actual auto, well, that will set you back around $3.4 million.
