in honor of the first
You know you’re special when a supercar bears your initials
supercar fans will no doubt be familiar with Pagani’s monstrous Huayra ( pronounced wai-ra), which boasts a cool 720hp produced by a 6.0- liter V12 hand-built by Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division. What you see here, however, is no regular Huayra—it’s the Huayra BC. The suffix stands for ‘Benny Caiola,’ Horacio Pagani’s good friend and first customer. This version named after him is a lighter, faster, and more hardcore incarnation of an already aggressive supercar.
The BC sports the same twin-turbo V12 as the standard Huayra, tuned to a meatier 789hp. The beefier engine is mated to a single-clutch seven-speed automated manual gearbox from Xtrac, which is 40% lighter than a standard dual-clutch unit. Additional weight savings are imparted by a new titanium exhaust, weighing in at 2.9kg ( 7.1kg lighter than the standard pipe system.)
Stopping power is provided by a bespoke unit from Brembo, featuring an all-new monolithic design with six-pot front calipers and four-pot rear; all in all, the system reduces weight by 6% versus the regular car’s setup. The wheels are lighter forged units from APP, shod in bespoke Pirelli P Zero Corsas. In line with Pagani’s obsession with weight savings, the carbon fiber tub and the suspension are also constructed from lighter materials. These combined measures make the BC some 132kg lighter than the ‘ base’ Huayra.
All 20 units of the BC coupe have been sold out, and orders for the BC roadster are already stacking up. Gone with the wind in three, two, one.
as if it already ain’t light and fast enough...
