Pagani is set to unveil a new hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Rumours doing rounds on the internet suggest that the new car could either be a roadster or a high-performance S version of the Huayra.
Speculations hint that the Huayra S will house an upgraded version of the twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 engine under its hood, or rather behind the driver. Powering the rear wheels, the engine in its ‘regular’ avatar pumps out a massive 730bhp and 1000Nm of torque. It is difficult to imagine more power coming out of this engine, but Pagani has always managed to make such power figures seem quite normal in its Zonda range of cars.
The rumours about the roadster version were fueled by founder and CEO of Pagani Automobili, Horacio Pagani’s announcement in 2011 that an open-top Huayra would be ready in three years time. The roadster version of the Huayra has been rendered before and if anything, it looks even better than the regular Huayra. The gull-wing doors were one of the biggest defining features of the car and it will be interesting to see how Pagani manages to surprise us with the open-top version.
Irrespective of the USD 1.5 million (Rs 9.34 crore) price tag, the Pagani Huayra currently has a waiting list of three years. Adding a new car to the lineup is sure to add more work to the lone Modena factory of the company. But this will be the least of our worries and the audience is sure to have a feast for the eyes, be it the roadster or the Huayra S.
