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 , 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 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.
