Pagani Huayra Roadster to bow by 2016by Drew Johnson
An open-air version of the Pagani Huayra is in the works.
Playboys in warm weather climates rejoice - Pagani has confirmed that it is working on a roadster version of its Huayra supercar.
Although we were led to believe that a convertible version of the Huayra would be available by now, Pagani spokesman Luca Venturi has assured that an open-air version of the supercar will hit the market within two years.
Like the Zonda Roadster that came before it, the Huayra Roadster is expected to use a removable roof panel rather than a more complex - and heavier - foldable job like the McLaren 650S Spider. Power will be provided by a 720 horsepower twin-turbocharged V12 sourced from Mercedes-Benz's AMG department.
In order to save on weight, the Huayra Roadster will continue to use a seven-speed single-clutch sequential transmission.
Pricing has not been confirmed, but the Huayra Roadster is expected to trump the coupe's already astronomical $1.5 million price tag.
