New Pagani Huayra Roadster features drop-top and 764 horsepower

New Pagani Huayra Roadster Revealed

Pagani's new supercar also aims to provide one thing that the Huayra Coupe was not able to provide drivers - the experience of open-top driving.

The essential shape and design cues have been taken from the gullwing coupe version, yet the folks at Pagani say that it has applied lessons learned from creating the hard-core Huayra BC in building the roadster. This is the new Huayra Roadster (pronounced Way-rah, so you know, and named after the God of wind), which looks as glamorous and exotic as its £2.32m price suggests it should be. The ride, however, will only come in 100 units, all of which have already been sold.

Pagani had started building the roadster in 2010 but the idea was scrapped and it was in 2013 that work began anew on this auto.

"Everything had to come together as if it was a auto carved out of a block of Carrara marble", said Pagani, who even labored over the design of individual screws as they were going to be on show. Vents front and rear plus self-adjusting suspension work in concert to change the flow of air over and under the vehicle to ensure the auto is always flat and parallel to the road. Like the coupe version, the Hauyra roadster has "active aerodynamics" with individual flaps at the front and rear that rise and fall automatically to provide the necessary amount of downward push at each corner of the auto. And because, roof or no, there's a 6-liter twin turbo V12 calling the shots, there is some clever active aerodynamic trickery too.

Ways Republicans Are Dodging the Flynn Scandal
Michael Flynn as Secretary of Defense instead of the president's National Security Adviser. Flynn acknowledged in his February 14 resignation letter that he misled Pence.

A blend of carbon fibre and titanium, which Pagani calls "Carbo-Titanium', stiffens the Huayra Roadster's structure by 52 per cent". The front and rear substructures are made from steel tubing.

It must be Valentine's Day, because we're falling in love with the new Pagani Huayra Roadster.

Melania Trump 'hooker' remark: NYT reporter apologises
An New York Times reporter has been reprimanded after allegedly calling Melania Trump " a hooker " during New York Fashion Week. Bernstein, who is a features writer for the newspaper, wrote a series of tweets in which he took ownership of the remark.

Coming to the roof it doesn't get, it isn't a convertible so do not expect it to get a retractable roof. The Huayra Roadster comes with two types of removable roof panels. The other is a carbon-fiber framework covered with fabric that can be stored in the auto for use in inclement weather.

The Pagani Huayra Roadster is powered by the Mercedes-AMG M158 engine. Gear shifts are done by an Automac-tuned ECU, and a Bosch limited-slip differential is also present to keep all that mad power in control. According to Pagani, the transmission is 40 percent lighter than the dual-clutch unit found in its predecessor. Brembo brakes - six-piston front and four-piston rear - haul the supercar down, and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires help it achieve an astounding 1.8g of lateral grip.

Senate Votes To Roll Back Mental Health Background Checks For Guns
The House got that ball rolling two weeks ago; the Senate sent it the rest of the way to President Trump's desk. Those rights will no longer be able to be revoked without a hearing and without due process.

While Paganis are works of art, the Huayra is no different. While we'll be excited to get up close with one at the Geneva Motor Show, that's about as close as we're going to get, unless one of us wins the Powerball.
