Pagani Huayra Roadster BC is one of the ultra-expensive cars that can break your bank account. How not? If you want to drive one home, you have to shell out a whopping $4.5 million. But there’s a good reason why it’s so expensive, and you’re about to hear that.
Under its bonnet, the Huayra Roadster BC is powered by an all-new V12 engine that cranks out 800 hp at 5900 rpm and 775 lb-ft of torque from 2000-5600 rpm. You can imagine how costly such an engine alone, especially since it’s a newly developed unit.
And we’re still not counting the cost of the completely new materials used to build the hypercar, which include Carbo-Triax and Carbon-Titanium. The new materials are said to increase the car’s torsional and flexional stiffness by 12 and 20 percent respectively.
The Carbo-Triax HP62 and Carbon-Titanium HP62 G2 formulas have helped Pagani achieved “some extraordinary results” in developing the Roadster BC. The car’s weight can be considerably trimmed, allowing more mechanical optimizations to be done in order to squeeze maximum performance out of the vehicle.
But again, such a development process is really expensive, since HP62 Panels are very costly to manufacture. It had been calculated that the material cost on the Roadster BC would jump 450 percent if such panels were to be used. This, however, is something that boss Horacio Pagani has no problem with. According to him, the firm must give its customers what they deserve: a product with the highest quality possible.
Now that explains where your money is going, if you ever have $4.5 million to buy one of the 40 Huayra Roadster BCs. That pool of cash will give you a monstrous hypercar weighing 1,250 kilograms, which comes with great aerodynamics that help it generates 500 kg of downforce at 174 mph while maintaining a ground clearance.
