En febrero de 2016, el constructor argentino Horacio Pagani presentó el Huayra BC. Fue un homenaje a la memoria del mejor cliente y amigo de Pagani Automobili, el fallecido coleccionista italiano Benny Caiola. Y también fue el primer Pagani auspiciado por la petrolera argentina YPF.
El contrato con YPF ya terminó, pero el recuerdo del empresario inmobiliario Caiola sigue presente. Pagani develó hoy el nuevo Huayra BC Roadster, la versión descapotable de aquella coupé nacida para tener el equilibrio justo entre confort -para disfrutarlo todos los días- y performance en pista.
Sólo se fabricarán 40 ejemplares del BC Roadster, que tendrán un precio de 3.1 millones de euros cada uno (sin impuestos). Lo interesante es que, por primera vez, Pagani Automobili presentó un nuevo modelo para el mundo real, en coordinación con el mundo virtual.
Se firmó una alianza con CSR Racing, para que el Huayra BC Roadster también se pueda manejar en los videojuegos de carreras como CSR2 (disponible en iOS y Android).
Al igual que la versión coupé, el Huayra BC Roadster tiene un motor Mercedes-AMG V12 6.0 biturbo, aunque con un rendimiento superior: 800 caballos de potencia (789 en la Coupé) y 1.050 Nm de torque (contra 811).
El auto pesa sólo 1.250 kilos, gracias al uso de dos nuevos materiales compuestos patentados por Pagani Automobili: Carbo-Triax HP62 y Carbo-Titanium HP62 G2.

San Cesario sul Panaro – July 31st, 2019 A spontaneous, unstoppable emotion. A burning desire that led the Client to dream of a new work of art: another Pagani creation. This is how, in 2017, the idea of the Huayra Roadster BC came to life. From a curious set of circumstances, a demanding research project was launched with a meticulous, almost obsessive focus on details and design in order to create a highly distinctive, street-legal Pagani hypercar that would combine the unparalleled sensations of driving a roadster with the most advanced technology available today.
Every effort made by the Pagani team, whose designers, engineers and master craftsmen work continuously to achieve the most extreme levels of scientific research and uniqueness, was focused on the pursuit of an ideal: to exceed the customer’s expectations and repay his absolute faith. This trial of unprecedented dedication was finally completed under the guidance and discipline of the ultimate polymath, Horacio Pagani.
Each and every component of this hypercar is the result of scrupulous analysis and Team Pagani’s critical approach that is specifically designed to constantly question every outcome and achievement. As the only way to guarantee true perfection is to never fall too much in love with the successes attained, but rather being able to observe them with a critical eye.
All this effort was translated into innovation, invention and exploration of unexplored paths in order to break new ground, never follow car trends and always seek to build truly timeless creations. This is the essence of the Roadster BC. Extreme, exuberant and shaped by hand in line with the fundamental concepts of Leonardo da Vinci’s Art and Science, the cornerstones of Pagani Automobili’s creative philosophy.
A road machine created with the latest technologies derived by Pagani Automobili’s track experience and in accordance with the key concepts of its DNA. In other words, an intuitive and easy-to-drive vehicle you can master after just a few miles and in which you can enjoy a full opentop experience without affecting the performance.
From the aerodynamics to its exterior and interior design, and right down to its tiniest part, Roadster BC’s chemistry and combination of advanced composite materials are unprecedented. Also, the elements that escape the eye of the expert have been optimized to offer genuine emotions and reach new horizons on multiple fronts. Like in a sophisticated watch, every single component of the Roadster BC is a concentration of Pagani Automobili’s ultimate design, technology and engineering expertise encapsulated in just 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs).
Can one focus on extreme performance without compromising satisfying, smooth driveability? Can lightness and safety be fused with design and elegance? The solutions lie in the agile and expert hands of those who believe that perfection and uniqueness can only be reached through painstaking care, manual skill and craftsmanship.
Pagani Automobili aspires for perfection, creating the greatest hand-built cars with a true hymn to the Renaissance.
Building an object as complex and full of state of the art solutions such as the Huayra not only takes brilliant minds, but real artists. We are proud to have technology leaders amongst our partners; redefining the limits, finding new solutions, processes and technologies. More than partners, I would say they are members of our family, sharing with Pagani Automobili the fundamental values, dreams and the passion.
