Pagani Huayra BC: the coupé supercar track focused revealed for the first time
Pagani surprises again with its brand new model: the Pagani Huayra BC. BC stands for Benny Caiola, a true collector that loved Pagani’s cars and their very first buyer. The Italian brand successes in revisiting the Huayra Coupé, with this 130 kg lightweight version that can achieve remarkable performances.
A total makeover, more aggressive
Pagani Huayra BC has nothing in common with the original model, except for the name. Indeed, everything has been rebuilt and improved to achieve more aggressive and impressive performances. The aim was to create a track oriented supercar with undeniable qualities.
Alike its sisters, Pagani Huayra BC introduces hybrid propulsion, a combination of combustion engine and electric motor. Concerning the engine, the Pagani Huayra BC is totally spoiled. The car possesses a V12 Bi-Turbo engine developed by Mercedes AMG, able to unleash more than 750 hp. Its sport exhaust is lighter and the materials used for its components as titanium bring the car an absolutely remarkable sound, more intense, more exciting, or the first sensation that we are looking for while buying this type of powerful car.
A new 7-speed Automated Manual Transmission was specially designed for Pagani Huayra BC. The gearbox, imagined by XTrac has a new hydraulic system and carbon fibre synchronizers that considerably improve gearshift times. Then the supercar is perfect for any kind of roads, in low grip situations or on the track, with more stability. And to improve its sporty character, a tripod axle drive shafts has been settled, inspired by Le Mans Racing, that guarantees unparalleled efficiency in terms of transference of power.
New components adapted to an impressive power
With such power potential, Pagani Huayra BC has adapted each of its components to this force. Then its new suspension system is the lightest and most effective ever applied to a road going vehicle. Designed again to lightweight the car and increase its responsiveness and driveability. Add to this a new Carbon-Ceramic breaking system able to face such a increased performance.
A new ESP system allows the Pagani Huayra BC’s driver to choose between three driving modes such as the former “Comfort” and “Sport” modes, but with a new “track” mode that will optimize the car’s prowess on track. A very useful mode, assisting even the most experienced drivers.
New aerodynamic element has been added, more resistant, to bring the Pagani Huayra BC concept to extremes, whilst disturbing the distinctive design of Pagani.
Finally, Pagani Huayra BC’s interior is minimalist, always with weight saving in mind. The deep black Alcantara cockpit with red leather finishes has also been entirely redesigned.
Pagani has not yet revealed the price of the Pagani Huayra BC that should be close to a million euros, but all the orders are now complete. If you are an admirer, you will be able to admire the supercar at next Geneva Motorshow, from 1st to 13th March 2016.
