Pagani Unveils a Slimmer & Tougher Huayra BC for 2016

Italian automaker Pagani has unveiled the 2016 Huayra Benny Caiola, a slimmer and tougher machine than its predecessor – the Huayra. The supercar has been equipped with an AMG-derived biturbo 6.0-liter V12, which is capable of outputting 789 horsepower (60 more horses than the Huayra), and an increased 811 pound-feet of torque (up from 738 pound-feet). The 132 kg weight reduction keeps the Huayra BC at a lighter 1,218 kg – thanks to the Forged APP wheels, titanium exhaust, Avional-made suspension uprights and wishbones, and a new type of carbon fiber that the Italian automaker claims is 50 percent light and 20 percent stronger than its conventional form.

This beautiful monster also features a seven-speed automated manual transmission by Xtrac that is 40 percent lighter, making it capable of hitting 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds. All 20 units produced have been sold out at $2.55 million USD each, but the car is yet to make its public debut, which is slated for March 1 at the Geneva Motor Show.
