The Very First Pagani Huayra Roadster Listed For Sale
The Pagani Huayra was introduced to the motoring world by Italian auto manufacturer Pagani back in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show. The breathtakingly beautiful Pagani Huayra succeeded Pagani’s previous offering, the now legendary Pagani Zonda. Production of the Pagani Huayra began six years ago back in 2012 and with a limited production run of only one-hundred examples, the Pagani Huayra has become a highly desirable vehicle and it is also very rare.
Just a few months ago, Pagani delivered the 100th and final Huayra to it’s new owner, six years after Huayra production officially began. Known as the Pagani Huayra L’Ultimo, this rather special Huayra featured an exterior paint finish that was inspired by the livery used on Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes AMG Formula One car. With the delivery of the Pagani Huayra L’Ultimo completed, production of the Pagani Huayra Coupe was officially over and as a result, Pagani can now focus all of their time on building the Huayra Roadster, which is just what they have been doing
The Pagani Huayra Roadster was officially unveiled by Pagani at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show after two years of non-stop development, and just a few months later production of the Huayra Roadster officially began. Just like it’s Coupe sibling, the Pagani Huayra Roadster will be built in limited numbers, just one-hundred examples will be built to be exact. Although it is unclear how many Pagani Huayra Roadster’s have been built/sold so far, it is believed that the waiting list for a new Huayra Roadster extends well into the next decade, which doesn’t surprise me at all.
Now, we are pretty sure that some Pagani clients would be more than happy to wait that long for their dream car but we are also positive that not everyone has that type of patience. Luckily for those that don’t like to wait, a Pagani Huayra Roadster has been listed for sale on JamesEdition and it’s not like any other Huayra Roadster that has been built, because this particular Huayra Roadster is the very first of the Huayra Roadster’s to be built.
This absolutely stunning Pagani Huayra Roadster is currently for sale at exotic car dealership Seven Car Lounge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. As mentioned earlier in this article, this particular Huayra Roadster is the very first example to be built, as a result it wears the chassis number 1 of 100 which will no doubt make this already highly desirable supercar even more desirable. Although the spec on this particular example is not the most attention grabbing, it still looks absolutely amazing and as a result we expect this Pagani Huayra Roadster to sell rather quickly.
To start things off, this Huayra Roadster features a rather understated White exterior paint finish which has been contrasted perfectly by a long list of carbon fiber exterior pieces, silver multi-spoke centerlock alloy wheels and what seems to be white painted brake calipers. It may not sound all that impressive but it is enough to give this Huayra Roadster the elegant yet aggressive look one would expect from a hand crafted supercar. Inside, this gorgeous Huayra Roadster features a bright white leather interior with a host of gloss carbon fiber and black aluminum accents and true to Pagani standards, it looks absolutely amazing.
Just like its Coupe sibling, the Pagani Huayra Roadster is powered by a 6.0 liter, twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine which has an overall power output of 754 hp (555 kW) and 1,000 Nm of torque. All of the engine’s power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automated manual transmission from the hardcore, track focused Pagani Huayra BC. As a result, the Pagani Huayra Roadster can reach an incredible top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) which places it directly into hypercar territory.
Although the 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged AMG V12 engine found in the Huayra Roadster is essentially the same unit as that found in the Huayra Coupe, it has been tuned by Pagani to deliver even more power, an extra 34 hp to be exact thus making it the most powerful version of the Pagani Huayra to date.
Unfortunately the dealer has not provided any pricing details for this Italian exotic in the JamesEdition listing. However, when ordered directly from the Pagani factory, this Huayra Roadster would have had an eye watering asking price of €2.28 million ($2.41 million) but I am absolutely positive that the dealership’s asking price will a lot higher than that.
