Pagani continues to tease

Pagani has released another image of its forthcoming Huayra Roadster.

This time, the Italian super car maker tweeted the rear tail lamps that continues to suggest the droptop hypercar will come with a completely redesigned body.

It’s thought the reason for the considerable changes over the coupe are because the car maker wants to apply the aero know-how it learned when developing the Huayra BC.

The most extreme version of the coupe was the product of countless hours of wind-tunnel testing that saw engineers not only fine tune the standard car’s active aerodynamics but also saw the addition of new aero tricks to reduce drag and boost down force without compromising engine and brake cooling.

We expect the new Pagani Roadster to incorporate some of the BC’s weight-saving measures, like the hardcore coupe’s full titanium exhaust, ultra-light suspension and brakes.

A removable carbon-fibre roof panel, plus its full carbon monocoque construction, meanwhile, has helped engineers keep off the extra weight of converting the coupe to a Roadster.

Under the all-new rear-clamshell boot lid the Roadster will come equipped with the 522kW/900Nm Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine. The German firm’s seven-speed single-clutch automated manual is also in there and an updated launch control system should see the Roadster reach 60mph in less than 3.0 seconds.
