Quite possibly the unattainable pipe dream of every car enthusiast is to someday own (or simply drive) a Pagani. Unfortunately, they’re a rare breed. And unless you’re casual friends with one of the handful of billionaires in the world who own one, you might just have to continue admiring from afar. Such is the case with the new drop top Pagani Huayra Roadster, revealed this week ahead of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
It’s not just the absent hard top roof either that sets this thing apart from previous iterations. It features larger wheel arches and is a bit lighter than the Huayra Coupe, 176 pounds to be exact, attributed to the ride’s 40 percent lighter 7-speed transmission. And in terms or power, the Roadster certainly brings its A-game, compliments of Mercedes-AMG who outfitted Pagani with a twin-turbocharged V12 that pushes out upwards of 764 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The open roof is also a huge change and can be covered by either a carbon fiber and glass roof or fabric one when needed. The price tag? Only $2.4 million, but not to worry, all 100 units have already sold out.
