Everyone’s talking about the Pagani Huayra BC lately, including us, thanks to a great photo of a camo-clad version of the supercar Pagani kindly posted on its Facebook page. Even though there’s little solid information out there about the vehicle, that hasn’t stopped the flow of speculation.
Thanks to our friends at TopSpeed, we have a nice rendering of what the Huayra BC probably looks like without the eye-dazzling camo. You’ll notice that it features that humongous rear wing that was evident in the official photo. This is a divisive styling element, because surely it has a job to do (otherwise why put it there?) and yet it seems so out of place on an otherwise sleek design. Just remember that Horacio Pagani slapped a huge carbon-fiber wing on a Lamborghini Countach back in the day. Some people love that kind of stuff.
Back to the Huayra BC, we’re really just guessing on the name based on a hashtag Pagani used on Facebook. BC could stand for all sorts of things like Bone-Crushing, but more than likely it’s something in Italian, so maybe Bellisimo Corvo (probably not that).
TopSpeed deftly looked beyond the humongous rear wing, because everyone else only paid attention to that thing and didn’t realize that this car has some other special details that go beyond the regular Huayra. One is a pair of spoilers underneath the wing, pushing the car down even more. The rear diffuser is different, extending from one end of the bumper to the other. The rear fascia looks to be a little changed as well.
The side skirts are deeper. TopSpeed also noted that the split-spoke wheels probably weigh significantly less than the ones on the regular Huayra, cutting down on unsprung weight.
Despite the front end of the supercar not having been revealed, TopSpeed was able to do some studying and came up with a rendering that shows improved aerodynamics with a bigger front splitter, race-spec canards on both sides and a reworked hood. Nice, huh?
Likely the Huayra BC will keep the same engine, and with some tuning it will produce a little more horsepower and torque. Most of the improved performance will come via a lower curb weight and better aerodynamics. TopSpeed thinks it will go from 0 to 60 in about 2.7 seconds and be able to reach at least 230 mph, making it an ideal car for leisurely drives in the country.
So far there’s no official reveal date for this more hardcore version of the Pagani Huayra. We’ll have more information once something solid surfaces.
