Pagani Huayra Roadster: last example produced

After three years and 100 units, production of the Pagani Huayra Roadster is coming close to its end. This was communicated by the Modenese manufacturer himself who celebrated this moment with a short video posted on Facebook that shows us the last production finished Huayra Roadster, ready to join its owner.

Exterior with carbon fiber on sight and yellow interior

The 100th example of the Pagani Huayra Roadster is characterized by a black livery in visible carbon fiber, which further highlights the build quality. The interior is dominated by yellow. On the open-air hypercar, there is also a shark fin on the rear which is inspired by the Zonda Tricolore and which represents a unique stylistic detail for this car.

The Italian company took care of every detail of its creature with meticulous attention. Its project pays a lot of attention to the bond with the air, a source of inspiration. Thanks to the four flaps arranged at the edges, the car continuously changes its shape. In this way the minimum coefficient of friction and the maximum of downforce are ensured. There is a control unit that leads this metamorphosis and receives and processes a lot of information. 

The central monocoque in carbon-titanium and the extensive use of composite materials made it possible to achieve the highest levels of rigidity and lightness. The weight on the scale does not in fact exceed 1280 kg.

Waiting for the Roadster

While the Pagani Huayra coupé went into production in 2011, the Roadster was introduced in the range only in 2017. Two years later it was followed by the more extreme Huayra Roadster BC, a more “hard” variant launched in 2019 and in a limited series of only 40 examples.

Considering the production times – Pagani indeed took more than double the time to sell and build an identical number of Huayra coupé – it seems there were high expectations for the Roadster.

A model that never dies

Anyway, we know that the definition of “last” is relative when we talk about Pagani. After the end of production of the Huayra coupé, the Modenese company introduced the Huayra Imola, a special variant only for the track. Not only: the Huayra R will soon be added, a version that should be introduced in January 2021 and presented with its aspirated engine under the hood that develops more than 900 hp of power.

Both the Huayra and the Zonda could both technically live forever, as Pagani happily agrees to continue building its cars on commission from customers. So even when Pagani launches the heir of the Huayra (probably with both electric and V12 propulsion), the outgoing model is unlikely to be left permanently behind.
