Pagani has been hard at work continuing to perfect its Huayra, and part of the perfection process includes releasing a hotter version of the supercar. Today, we got our first peek at the upcoming hotter Huayra, as the automaker released a teaser image on its Facebook page. Along with this image comes a healthy dose of speculation, as well.
This image has along with it the tag “#huayrabc,” leading me to believe that the name of the new supercar will be the Huayra BC. What remains a mystery is precisely what the “BC” in its name stands for.
The teaser image doesn’t give away too much, as it is under heavy camo at this point. The only changes I can make out from the images are its large rear wing, new wheels, and what appears to be a more aggressive rear diffusor. According to rumors, the changes to the Huayra BC go well beyond just a hotter body kit.
Rumors indicate that this hotter version of the Huayra will continue on with the AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V-12 powerplant, but with its power cranked up. In the base Huayra, this engine pumps out 730 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to get the supercar to 60 mph in just 3.3 ticks of the second hand and up to 230 mph. I highly doubt that we’ll see a massive spike in this department, but 750 to 775 horsepower seem realistic.
Weight savings will also be key in developing the new Huayra BC. Look for Pagani to increase the supercar’s carbon-fiber diet to help drop it a few pounds below the base model’s 3,065-pound curb weight. We’ll also see a slightly stripped-down interior to complement the use of the lightweight material.
While all of these details remain just hearsay for now, the new Huayra is rumored to break cover at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2016, so we won’t have to wait too long for official confirmation.
