The 2017 Pagani Huayra breaks the "Convertible Tradition"

The 2017 Pagani Huayra breaks the
Usually convertible versions are heavier and slower but the 2017 Pagani Huayra has broke the tradition, it lost some weight, and even got more powerful

Many of us are already used to imagine the convertible version of sports cars much more heavier and a bit less powerful, but it’s time to leave this tradition in the past and welcome a better model. The new Pagani Huayra Roadster has a dry weight of about 2,822 pounds, which is roughly 176 pounds lighter than that of the Huayra Coupe. The Mercedes-AMG twin-turbocharged V12 also makes 764 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The hardtop can match the torque number, but falls short on power by 44 horses.
 


 

The weight savings come courtesy of technology developed for the even more hardcore Huayra BC. The Roadster uses the same type of lightweight, HiForge aluminum suspension components and the 7-speed automated manual transmission of the BC model. According to Pagani, the transmission alone is 40 percent lighter than the dual-clutch unit in the Coupe, and the new suspension is lighter than the normal Huayra's by 25 percent. In addition to being lighter, Pagani also claims to have made the new Roadster stiffer than the hardtop. The changes to the Huayra Roadster aren't entirely performance focused though. The nose appears to be a bit longer and lower, with a meaner grille. In fact, it looks a bit Zonda-esque. The radical blue-tinted bodywork, made out of titanium woven with carbon fiber, also features some nifty gills where the cover leads up to the seat hoops, plus wider wheel arches versus the Coupe. Of course the biggest change is the open roof, which can be filled by either a carbon fiber and glass roof, or a fabric one that can be stowed inside the car when not in use.
 


 

The car will make its public debut at the Geneva show, and it costs about $2.4 million at current exchange rates. But the price really doesn't matter because all 100 units of the Huayra Roadster has already sold out. Better keep an eye on the auction market in case one comes up.
