Pagani Huayra Roadster: Roofless V12 elegancePagani makes some of the most beautiful cars in the world, and now its lopped the roof off its Huayra GT and made one of the prettiest roadsters known to man.
[SOUND] Hello Internet. I'm not going to lie. I've been really looking forward to this one. This is the new Pagani Huayra Roadster. It's a Huayra without a roof! And it's so pretty, so achingly pretty. The front end has been given a little redesign The rear's been given a little flip to the back over the rear lights. Just tweaks here and there and everywhere to make it just ever so slightly a little bit prettier and different from the prior [UNKNOWN] coupe. My favorite though, is in between the buttresses just over the rear. It's just. So pretty. [UNKNOWN] Engine, as well. Now, while you're looking at the pretty, let's talk about one of the coolest bits about this. This is a car designed by Mr. P himself, which means there's more attention to detail in here than a Kurosawa flick. Now they used a new composite called carbo [INAUDIBLE]. It's hard to pronounce and remember. And also a new alloy in the suspension called [INAUDIBLE]. As such it's 80 kilos lighter than the [UNKNOWN] and 52% stiffer. Basically it's lighter and harder. And as I'll explain later, probably a bit faster than the car upon which the car it's based. As this is a Pagani, I thought it's best that we fill you in a little bit on the company and the man that created it. The Pagani Huayra, a car that dreams are made of. Powered by an AMG V12 with a couple of turbos onboard, its 730 horses aren't often spared. It's big, imposing, and has doors that open up. Which is pretty cool. It's the brain child of Horatio Pagani, the son of a baker who found a passion for cars, design, and engineering at a young age. As a child he used to make small wooden cars and present them to his friends as the vehicles he debuted at major national auto shows. As he got older he designed and built a Formula 2 racing car using only the rule book As no Formula II cars had ever been to his homeland of Argentina. After befriending legendary racing driver Fangio, Pagani landed a job at Lamborghini. Discovering a love for lightweight composites. After a decent amount of time, he moved on from Santa Garda and started his own company, Modern Design Offering a systems in composites to all who needed it. He also started work on a new car with his friend and mentor Fangio. The Fangio F1 was gonna be the name. However, after Fangio's death it got a new name, Zonda. And Pagani's place in the supercar hall of fame was assured. His flare for materials design, feel and engineering means Paganis are sensory affairs. Apart from taste, all your senses are treated to the finest the world has to offer. So, there's no reason to doubt that the Juarez Roadster will be anything short of exemplary. How cool is that? So, how much has it got? Well, the Juarez V12 has been tweaked, and averages 753 horsepower and more than 738 Foot all from the delicious Turbo Charge V12. Now, in a car weighing just 1280 kilos, that means it's going to be fairly quick. And let's put this all into perspective, the standard inquirer does [INAUDIBLE] in 6.3 seconds and will allegedly crack 230 miles an hour. So it's going to be a little bit tasty. [INAUDIBLE] With a raging gearbox. This thing is just going to be incredible. Now, the [UNKNOWN] is only making 100 of them and they're going to be around two million pounds. If you want one, you can't have one. They're all sold. Go ahead, mate.
