If you remember the Zonda model, you probably know that its replacement was Huayra, debuted back in 2012. However, if you didn’t know that, now you know. Maybe the Huayra model sounds strange, but this the name is based on the Wayra Tata (god of the wine in the era of the Inca). We had Huayra coupe model, but this one was limited only to 100 units. Since 2015, Pagani introduced unique BC version. The most important thing for us, but also for all the potential customers is the introduction of the 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster model. In this review, we will try to provide you all the important pieces of information about the recently developed model.
The Roadster model will be the most powerful Pagani model. Also, according to some rumors, this model will be lighter than the coupe. When it comes to features, we can expect so many standard high-tech features inside the cabin. Of course, this kind of vehicle demand a high price, but that this so normal.
2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster Exterior design
The Horacio Pagani, builder of this fantastic Company is a great man, and we can say that we are glad to have this man in the automotive industry. All models from Pagani looks quite remarkable, and the newly Huayra Roadster is our favorite when it comes to exterior design. Chassis is improved upgrade from older models like Zonda R and the Huayra BC, now they use newest composite materials like carbo-titanium and Carbo-Triax HP52, the most advanced technology in the World. Ultracar now has the same weight(1,280kg, less then coupe) but it is 52% stronger frame.
If you know how the Huayra coupe, then you also know how the newly roadster will look like. In general, 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster will be very similar to the mentioned coupe model, but some slight differences will be certainly provided. Also, we can expect some new or refreshed features. First of all, let’s start to from the front side of this model. Actually, the front fascia is more similar to the Huayra BC than to the coupe variant.
More precisely, below the nose, we had curved horizontal bars, but now, here we can expect more stylish and more angular bumper with the larger air vents openings at the middle as well as LED lights toward the edges. The diffuser will be a little bit less aggressive and this time we can’t see side canards. Also, the hood is recognizable V-shaped, but this time, it will be a little bit narrower. The profile side of this model will be almost identical to the coupe model. The rear side of this model will also provide some slight differences compared to the coupe model. There were some rumors about the aggressive diffuser borrowed from the BC model. However, that rumor was fake, and that is not true.
The diffuser will be similar as in the coupe model, but we can expect the addition of a new lower section that will provide four vertical fins. New Pagani Huayra Roadster 2017 will just like the coupe model provide taillights with carbon fiber surround, quad exhaust pipe in the center of the bumper, as well as a carbon-fiber diffuser. When it comes to the roof, according to Company, we can actually expect two types of roof. The first roof will be so light and it will have central glass element. They say that it will be very quick and simple to install. The second type of roof will fabric and carbon cover and you can install it manually, and you can store it inside the vehicle. Wheels are 21-inches in the rear and 20-inches with latest Pirelli PZero Corsa tires. Brakes are Brembo with newest carbon ceramic material, dimensions are front 380×34 mm with 6-piston caliper and rear 380×34 mm 4-piston caliper. These are probably the best Brembo brakes ever made.

Pagani Huayra Roadster 2017 Interior design
We don’t have so many official pieces of information from the Company, but we have some photos of the cabin and we think that is quite enough for the good description. According to some photos that we have, this model will be almost identical to the coupe variant when it comes to the design of the cabin. We can expect the same dashboard as we used to see in the coupe. We can also expect a center stack as well as aviation shape A/C vents and the tick. This model will also provide fantastic seats. More precisely, we can expect race-inspired seats with the leather upholstery(99% Italian) and massive bolstering.

Some rumors suggest that we can expect more upholstery materials, but this info is not confirmed. If we have to comment that rumor, we would say that Huayra model already has the best upholstery materials that we can see in the automotive industry. The flat bottomed and race-inspired is something that is normal for all Pagani models including this one as well. We can expect a lot of polished aluminum and carbon fiber materials inside. Everything else will remain exactly the same as in the regular coupe variant, including all the standard features.
Engine and Performance
Beneath the bonnet, the resulting model will be powered by the same engine that we used to see in the coupe model. Of course, the word is about the AMG-sourced, 6.0-liter V-12 engine. This engine will be capable of delivering up to 753 horsepower @ 6200 rpm (764 PS) and 738 pound-feet of torque @ 2400 rpm. As you can notice, new 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster have the same torque but 33 horses more than the coupe variant.
The suspension is also peace of art, with uses of lightweight aluminum alloy, and code name of HiForg. Because of that car are 1/4 lighter. This gives Pagani the best power-weight ratio.

Also, this model has more power than the BC model. This the remarkable engine will be mated to a new seven-speed AMT transmissions system. Of course, Pagani develops this gearbox. Built by X-Track, this transmission will provide a hydraulic and electronic activation system. The performance details are not available at this point. However, considering the fact that this model is 76 pounds lighter than the coupe, we can expect better acceleration. Some rumors suggest that acceleration from 0-60 mph will be around 2.9 seconds and maybe even less.
Price and Release date
The release date of new 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster is not so important considering the fact that all units are already sold. The price of this model is high, but as you can see, that is deserved. The starting price will be around $2.41 million. Some of its main rivals are Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Aventador S.
