Pagani ups the ante with Huayra BCPagani has unveiled the Huayra BC, the latest and greatest version of the Italian manufacturer's hyper car. It keeps the stunning styling of the standard car but adds some aero, loses some weight and gains a lot of performance.
When it comes to making beautiful cars [UNKNOWN] are pretty much the pros. But [UNKNOWN] and [UNKNOWN] are beautiful and the new [UNKNOWN] v c while it's not unpretty is it. Now even though it looks like a [UNKNOWN] with some different bits added on it's actually completely different. And the top the VC got it's name from Vinny Ciolan, Horacio Pagani first customer, friend and mentor. And it weighs in at just 1218 kilo. Now to put that into perspective that's the same as a Hienzi I20 one-meter turbo premium [UNKNOWN]. And they managed to do that by making pretty much everything that can be light Quite light. They've used materials like aeronautical grade aluminum and a new composite, that's 50% lighter and 20% stronger than normal carbon fiber. Pretty impressive stuff. As you may have noticed, the Aero is ever so slightly different from the normal car. Now that's to keep its 789 break horsepower, 811 pound [UNKNOWN] stuck firmly To the road. Now before we get on to all the numbers stuff, here's a quick look at what makes Pagani's cars so special. To say that a Pagani is just a car is kind of cruel because it's more than that. Way more than that. Horatio Pagani started his career at Lamborghini after Fangio himself sent a note of recommendation. Before that at home in Argentina, he built himself an F2 car despite the fact he never actually seen one move in the metal. There was no F2 race near him. As a child, he'd make model cars and tell his friends which motor show he showed them at. His vehicles aren't just cars, they're creations. Works of art put together by a man who dared to be a bit different. He left Lamborghini because they didn't want to use composites when he did. Ever wonder why each Borghini uses so much of the stuff? Well, that's because old Mr P know his way around an autoclave and wants to use it to full effect. [SOUND] [NOISE] Of equal importance to the speed, which is a given in a Pagani built car, and style, is feel. These cars have to feel right. The leather just so, the wheel needs to fit well. Every switch must look and sound right. Pagani doesn't create cars Pagani creates art. [MUSIC] Speaking of details, the interior is absolutely stunning. I've mentioned that's something we've come to expect from Pagani. Now to make the BC go better than the standard car, if you can really call it that, Pagani's changed pretty much Everything, springs, dampers, more lightweighting. And, its gearbox, and this is the impressive thing, its been tweaked over the standard car, but it's still not a jaw clutch transmission because the single clutch unit that they have is lighter than the DCTs on the market. But, it's twice as quick as a regular car, changing gears in just 75 milliseconds. Next, the numbers bit. Only 20 of these are going to be made, and there's no official [UNKNOWN] or anything like that, but expect [UNKNOWN] in not very long, and a top speed well in excess of 200 miles an hour. If you want one of the 20, you'd have to shell out over 2 million euros But you can't have one, cuz they're all sold. But still, I love that it exists.
