Pagani Huayra Roadster Due Within Two Years: Report


While the world probably isn't quite done lusting after the hardtop Pagani Huayra supercar, there is reportedly a roadster version in the works that will undoubtedly add even more drama to this superlative automobile.

While previous reports suggested the Huayra roadster would arrive sometime in 2014, a Pagani spokesman told Autoblog that the roofless car could show up anytime within the next two years.

Like the Zonda before it, the Huayra roadster should be identical to its coupe sibling, with all of the same mechanical bits. That means a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged Mercedes-Benz AMG V-12, producing at least 700 horsepower.

The Huayra coupe's gull-wing doors will have to go though. Pagani will likely give the Huayra roadster a removable roof panel rather than a folding hard or soft top, just as it did with the previous Zonda Roadster. It'll be interesting to see what affect removing the roof will have on the Huayra's controversial styling, which doesn't suit everybody, but does look pretty good in bare carbon fiber.

The Huayra roadster will be sold in the U.S., but ti could be awhile before customers get their hands on one. Despite a recent production ramp-up, Pagani still builds less than 100 cars per year. At least that gives buyers plenty of time to save up the more than $1.5 million the Huayra roadster is likely to cost.
