Pagani is set to unveil a new, more hardcore version of its Huayra supercar at next week’s 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The car is called the Huayra BC and it’s to be built in a limited run of just 20 examples.
The car honors the late Benny Caiola, a supercar collector and close acquaintance of Pagani founder Horacio Pagani, and it runs an uprated version of the regular Huayra’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12.
In the Huayra BC, the engine spits out 789 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, up from 720 hp and 738 lp-ft previously. From this video from YouTube user tokyosanyon, we also learn that the engine has not only gained extra oomph it also sounds much more mental.
The video shows the Huayra BC on some roads surrounding Sicily’s Mount Etna volcano, where some of the official shots of the car were taken. The car’s unusual wing design looks just as silly as it does in the official shots, though we’re told it significantly boosts downforce. Many of the aerodynamic elements were developed together with Italian race car constructor Dallara.
In case you were wondering, the Huayra BC has a starting price of 2.3 million euros (approximately $2.55 million). However, the price is meaningless as the car is already sold out.
Stay tuned for more as we’ll be bringing you live photos following the debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1. In the meantime, learn about some of the other cars set to appear by visiting our dedicated hub.
