Pagani Brings To Geneva New Special Huayra BC Version
|   Saturday, March 19, 2016
In 2000, Benny Caiola, a collector of exotic cars, sent a gratitude letter to Horacio Pagani and money for the car's mechanics. Today, Pagani honors him with a special edition worth 2.3 million euros.

With the occasion of the Geneva Motor Show, Pagani will reveal a special version of the Huayra model, named Benny Caiola. The name comes from an avid car collector with a passion for Ferrari and Pagani models. It seems that in 2000, when Pagani was just starting, Benny sent a letter of thanks to the founder and a check for 1,000 dollars for car mechanics.


The strongest street alternative for the supercar built by Horacio Pagani has the same V12 engine with a displacement of 6.0 liters, modified to provide 60 extra horsepower. That is why the Huayra BC delivers 789 horsepower and the torque increases from 1000 Nm to 1089 Nm.

The most passionate fans will appreciate the fact that Pagani did not turn to hybrid propulsion to enhance the Huayra's performance. The Argentine engineer explains in the press release that after serious research, he has decided not to follow the path of hybrid supercars launched in recent years. Of course, we are talking about the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, or LaFerrari. Instead, Pagani has focused on reducing the weight, improving aerodynamics and adoption of technologies used in motorsport competitions of the highest caliber.

The Huayra Coupe's design has a timeless aura that is admired on the most famous supersport models in automotive history. The new super-car is an extreme version of the Huayra model, distinguished by an aggressive exterior and a more efficient propeller. Practically all the exterior bodywork panels have been modified, receiving extensions, spoilers, ailerons and aggressive air intakes. Aerodynamics has been refined with the help of specialists from Dallara, which design racing cars for Formula E, Indycar and Formula 3.
Therefore, all aerodynamic elements are not present just in form, but they actually performing specific functions!

More than that, the new Huayra BC managed a weight reduction of 132 kg, so the weight of the super sports car is down to 1,218 kg from the 1,350 kg of the Huayra's Coupe. Mostly, weight has been reduced thanks to the exterior and interior elements made from a special carbon fiber, which is 50 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger, but also due to the forged APP rims (-9 kg ), exhaust system made of titanium, which weighs only 2.9 kg (-7.1 kg), and the new Xtrac transmission with 7 speeds that is 40 percent lighter and twice as fast as the transmission on the Huayra super-car ( changing gear now takes 75 ms versus 150 ms in the previous version).

Accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h and the maximum speed are unknown, but given that the traditional Huayra version accelerates in 3.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 360 km / h, the new Huayra BC should indicate time less than 3 seconds and a top speed a bit lower - around 350 km / h, due to higher downforce, which is generated by the aerodynamic kit.

Pagani has announced it will produce only 20 Huayra BC units, but all have already been sold. The price is set at about 2.3 million euros per unit.
