Pagani says the Roadster is a lot more than just a Huayra without a top, claiming that tremendous engineering went into manufacturing the car, resulting in 80 kg or 6{52fc1907a0a3de5bb99ec1823a272c73f9cf5bae2273755893d388ae640ff405} reduction in weight over the car at 1.280 kg while also improving torsional flexional rigidity. This was mainly achieved with the use of new composite materials.

The V12 is paired to the same new seven-speed automated manual transmission engineered and built by Xtrac that’s found in the Huayra BC.

New Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with 380×34 mm discs and 6-piston calipers in the front, and 380×34 mm discs, 4-piston calipers at the rear provide stopping power. For this new model, Pagani also worked with Pirelli to create a specific tire for the Roadster that shows the initials of the company’s founder “HP” on the shoulder.

Re-worked ESP is another distinctive touch, it provides 5 different driving modes: Wet, Comfort, Sport, Race and ESC Off.
For the Roadster, Pagani has created two types of roofs, the first one comes with a light carbon hard top with a central glass element that gives it a same type of look to a car, and the other, a fabric and carbon cover can be easily stored inside of Huayra Roadster. As of now there are no details or clarity on how the doors will open.

Not to forget that roadsters are generally more costly, the Huayra Roadster could cost around $2 million before options. If rumors prove to be true and Roadster gets a bespoke chassis and a more powerful engine, the price could increase to around $2.5 million.
