The Pagani Huayra BC, a more powerful, hardcore version of the Italian firm’s Huayra supercar, has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show.
The BC’s name refers to Benny Caiola, a property magnate who is said to have been a major inspiration for Horacio Pagani. Caiola was the first customer to buy a Pagani car, so this limited run of Huayra models is being dedicated to him.
Most notable about the new model is its large fixed rear wing and front splitter, something which Pagani says is designed to maximise aerodynamic efficiency. The Huayra BC shares no single body panel with the regular Huayra road car and features active aerodynamics.
Power for the hardcore Huayra comes from the same Mercedes-AMG-built 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine, which produces in excess of 740bhp at 6200rpm alongside 738lb ft of torque at 4000rpm. That’s 10bhp more than the standard Huayra. As in the current car, drive is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automated manual transmission, but Pagani says it has modified the clutch control programme to allow for greater accuracy.
