The Pagani Huayra Roadster: Yours for $2.4m

By Paul Joseph

In 2010 Italian supercar makers Pagani unveiled the coupe version of their Huayra Roadster, and many commentators expected it would be the stunning car’s apex.

Perhaps they did not take into account the brand's persistent desire to push the boundaries of luxury, as they have now launched a drop top version of the Huayra that adds a fresh allure.

Powered by Mercedes-AMG’s twin turbo ‘M158’ V12 which offers 764 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque, the car is truly a vision to behold.

The car body is lighter but more rigid than the original coupe thanks to the use of a carbon fiber-titanium hybrid as well as a new material called Carbo-Triax HP52.

It also comes with two roof options, a carbon fibre roof featuring a glass window and a fabric unit that can be stored in the car.

Only 100 units of the model have produced and despite an eye-watering price tag of $2.4 million, they are all already sold out.

Pagani Automobili S.p.A was founded in 1992 and is based in San Cesario sul Panaro, near Modena, Italy. The brand’s first ever model, the Zonda C12, was first presented at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show.
