Pagani previews more extreme Huayra BC

by Ronan Glon

The V12-powered Huayra BC might debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Pagani has published a dark teaser image that previews a more extreme version of the Huayra called BC.

The Italian car maker hasn't revealed what BC stands for yet, but the teaser image suggests the coupe benefits from a more aggressive-looking body kit that consists of a massive wing on the back, a big air diffuser, and deeper side skirts. Additionally, the coupe rides on specific wheels.

The BC is expected to retain the stock Huayra's AMG-derived, twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine, but its output will be bumped to over 730 horsepower and 738 lb-ft. of torque. The coupe will be capable of reaching 60 mph from a stop in less than 3.3 seconds before going on to a top speed of over 230 mph.

Performance will also be enhanced by the widespread use of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber, though how much weight the Huayra will shed is anyone's guess at this point. The stock model tips the scale at 3,064 pounds.

indicate the Pagani Huayra BC will greet the public for the first time in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Production will allegedly be limited to just 20 units, and each one will carry an eye-watering base price of roughly $2.7 million. The -- which could offer up to 1,500 horsepower -- will be relatively affordable at approximately $2.2 million.
