Pagani’s ‘Flying Machine’ Is The One To Have – Meet The Huayra BC Macchina Volante

One Of A Kind Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante Up For Sale

The breathtakingly beautiful Pagani Huayra was first introduced to the automotive universe by Italian exotic auto manufacturer Pagani at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The absolutely stunning Pagani Huayra succeeded Pagani’s previous offering the now legendary Pagani Zonda, which still looked absolutely fantastic despite being twelve years old when it was officially replaced by the Huayra. Production of the Pagani Huayra officially began seven years ago back in 2012 and with a limited production run of just one-hundred examples, the Pagani Huayra has become a highly desirable and pretty rare vehicle today, although there is one version of the Huayra which is even more rare and desirable.

In 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show, Pagani announced that they would be building a limited production, track focused version of the regular Pagani Huayra, known as the Pagani Huayra BC. If you know a thing or two about Pagani, then you will no doubt know that the Pagani Huayra BC was named after the late Benny Caiola, who was the very first Pagani customer and a close friend of Pagani founder, Horacio Pagani. As mentioned above the hardcore Pagani Huayra BC was produced in limited numbers, in fact the Huayra BC was intended for Pagani’s top clients and just twenty Pagani Huayra BC’s ever saw the light of day. As expected all twenty examples of the Pagani Huayra BC sold out quickly, so if you have always dreamed of owning a Huayra BC your dream may never come true.

However not all hope is lost because as with other rare and desirable exotic automobiles, every so often one example may be listed for sale on the pre-owned market. Like the vehicle featured in this article, what you are no doubt drooling over ladies and gentlemen is a 2017 Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante and it is absolutely stunning isn’t it? For those of you that don’t speak Pagani, Macchina Volante translates to “Flying Machine” in English and although it may seem like an odd name for such an automotive masterpiece it does make sense as this particular Pagani Huayra BC was built in tribute of Pagani founder, Horacio Pagani’s role model, Leonardo da Vinci.

The Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante was originally commissioned by US based car collector Kris Singh and it is a one-of-a-kind example that was delivered in 2017. When it was delivered in 2017 it was described as the most ‘craziest Huayra ever’ due to it’s artwork like Blu Tricolore and Grey Carbon Fiber exterior finish. Besides it’s stunning one-off exterior finish, the Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante also features Blu Francia BC style racings stripes, large air intakes on the rear quarter panels, a Zonda Cinque inspired roof scoop, Pagani Zonda F inspired side view mirrors with Italian tricolore accents, Blu Francia accents on the rear diffuser, lightweight wheels finished in Gold with Blu Francia painted brake calipers and model exclusive Macchina Volante badges.

Despite being described as the ‘craziest Huayra ever’ by many, it seems that the Huayra BC Macchina Volante wasn’t crazy enough for Mr Singh as he had this stunning Huayra BC outfitted with a bespoke carbon fiber rear wing that is larger than the stock Pagani Huayra BC unit. Speaking of the large rear wing, not only does this component provide greater downforce and unique styling but it also features engraved ‘Macchina Volante’ text which was hand painted by Horacio Pagani himself. Also featured on the rear wing is the number 12, the exact number of Juan Manuel Fangio’s 1955 Mercedes-Benz W196 Formula One race car. In order to make the Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante even more special, the signatures of all the Pagani employees involved in creating this one-of-a-kind Huayra can be found under the rear clam.

Moving inside, the one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante features an interior which is just as breathtaking and unique as it’s exterior. If you peek inside this one-of-a-kind Huayra BC, you will find Pagani exclusive blue jeans leather and tartan fabric upholstered carbon fiber seats with black Alcantara inserts and Italian tricolore stripes. Elsewhere, you will find a black leather trimmed carbon fiber multi function flat bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber door panels with the number 12 on them, a carbon fiber dashboard with black leather inserts, numerous carbon fiber and piano black interior trim pieces with blue accents, a one-off ball shifter manufactured from blue anodized metal and of course, a ‘Macchina Volante’ plaque.

As the stunning one-off Huayra Macchina Volante is essentially a Pagani Huayra BC, it is powered by an uprated version of the standard Huayra’s 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged, AMG V12 engine. As a result, the Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante has an overall power output of 745 hp (555 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to the massive hand built AMG V12 engine is an all-new Xtrac 7-speed sequential manual transmission which sends all available power directly to the rear wheels. As the Pagani Huayra BC is roughly 132 kg (291 lbs) lighter than a standard Pagani Huayra, it is able to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in an estimated 3.3 seconds and it will keep on accelerating until it reaches a maximum speed in excess of 385 km/h (240 mph). According to the official vehicle listing, this gorgeous Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante has covered 0 kilometres (0 miles) since new, but we don’t think this true as the Huayra Macchina Volante has been spotted driving in the United States and Geneva, Switzerland.

As mentioned earlier in this article, the one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante is looking for a new home and it has been listed for sale by Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, Connecticut. As for the price, well you will have to contact Miller Motorcars directly for any pricing details but we are absolutely positive that this one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra BC will sell for a couple of million dollars. However according to Miller Motorcars, the one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante will be sold with a matching 7 piece luggage set, XPEL Plastic protection on each exterior panel and two black anodized Huayra BC key fobs. I was fortunate to see a standard Pagani Huayra and a Pagani Huayra Roadster up close and I was blown away by the attention to detail. However, the beautiful Pagani Huayra BC Macchina Volante takes attention to detail to a whole new level. Whoever said automobiles can’t be art, care to reconsider?
