It was in Geneva back during 2011 that people first laid their eyes on the Pagani Huayra. Now, after five years, the exotic Italian auto manufacturer returns with the more aggressive Huayra BC for the model year 2016. The 2016 Pagani Huayra BC is on show at the Auto Show 2016 In Geneva. It is a track-oriented model of the unbeaten Huayra hypercar. However, the Italian sports coupe manufacturer will construct only 20 units initially for the model year 2016. The vehicle was named after Benny Caiola, the first customer of the Pagani Zonda Cinque model. Unlike the 2010 model super-duper Pagani Zonda R, the 2016 model Huayra BC is street legal, although very much track-centered.
2016 Pagani Huayra BC Changes, Exterior
Trailing the footsteps of the Zonda R and Zonda Cinque, it is a more centered affair. The 2016 model Huayra BC gets some extreme visual external changes. The new model Huayra BC comes with substantial changes in terms of body, frame and engine when compared to those of its predecessor. The new vehicle does not share any of its external elements with the outgoing Huayra, including the roof, which has been redesigned in the hunt for utmost downforce and cooling.
It comes equipped with a huge rear wing, the jutting spoiler in the front, the extra-large wheels that look as if they could maintain a small helicopter up. The new Pagani Huayra BC 2016 comes equipped with 20-inch alloy wheels in the front and 21-inch alloy wheels at the back, wearing specifically developed Pirelli tires(P Zero Corsa in 255/30ZR20 and 355/25ZR21 sizes), with discretionary track-only tires to allow the new vehicle for cornering at 2g. These external additions may make the supercar look more stylish than the one from which it is derived.
The front part of the vehicle comes equipped with a redesigned bumper, better air intakes and canards. Actually, all panels, except the roof, have been replaced with novel designs. The 2017 model Huayra BC is also lighter than the standard Huayra, with the curb weight of 2680 pounds (1218 kg) when compared to that of the standard Huayra that weighs 2970 pounds (1,350 kg). The most spectacular change would be at the back of the vehicle that comes with a gigantic carbon fiber back diffuser and a corresponding back spoiler.
The 2016 model Huayra BC comes equipped with novel suspension uprights and four-way adaptable Ohlins dampers, the most modern Brembo carbon earthenware brakes and a rear electronic differential.
The 2016 Pagani Huayra BC interior does not experience any changes in its interior styling, meaning it comes with the same interior features of its predecessor. The cabin of the new vehicle also comes equipped with the similar sportier seats and a smaller number of frills, similar to those of the Zonda Cinque. However, it is expected that the automaker would offer some minor updates to the technology section according to the tastes and needs of modern day buyers.
2016 Pagani Huayra BC Engine, 0-60
The new Huayra BC comes equipped with a V12 twin-turbo engine with the displacement of 6.0 liters, 36 Valves. This is the engine developed by Mercedes-AMG. This is finely tuned to offer the utmost power of 750 horsepower(rumors about 789 horsepower), which is in excess of 69 horsepower offered by the outgoing model. It is also competent to offer the utmost torque of 738 pound-feet of torque. Top gear claims that Huayra has, even more, torque, 811 pound-feet.
Power is transmitted via digitally controlled differential developing tripod-wrought driveshafts, analogous to those of a Le Mans model. The combined weight of the differential and gearbox is less than by 40 % than the transmission of the standard Huayra, assisting to boost performance and perking up the handling.
The engine is mated to a seven-velocity automated manual transmission, AMT next generation, with electronic mechanical differential. The engine also offers the new vehicle better performance that makes it reach the 62 mph speed from the start in 2.8 seconds with a top velocity of 220 mph.
Price and the release date
The 2016 Pagani Huayra BC release date is expected to be the fourth quarter of 2015 and the new vehicle will be available at a starting price of 2.35 million Euros (approx $ 2.8 millions).
