The Pagani Huyra Roadster – the long awaited open-top take on the Huayra Coupe – will make its debut in the USA at Monterey car week in August.
It’s more than five years since Cars UK exclusively revealed the first ever photo of the Pagania Huayra – Pagani’s replacement for the Zonda – and we’ve been expecting the next instalment – the Pagani Huayra Roadster – to arrive almost as long.
In fact, Horacio Pagani confirmed in 2011 that a Huayra Roadster was on the way, but it wasn’t until 2014 he actually revealed it wouldn’t be ready until 2016.
But now it looks like Pagani hasn’t been sidelined by creating the new Huayra BC, and that the new Huayra Roadster will be ready for the world to see by August, and Pagani are planning to reveal it during Monterey Car Week.
The news has been confirmed by Autoblog in conversation with Pagani’s Luca Venturi, who told them the Roadster would be revealed some days before the Sunday Concours in August, and that it would also be on display at The Quail.
It also looks like the Huayra Roadster will be a relatively modest run of 100 cars, expected to get the same 6.0 litre AMG V12 as the Coupe with around 730bhp, but with the obvious changes to accommodate a folding roof.
No doubt, between now and Monterey week, we’ll get more on the new Pagani Huayra Roadster.
