It’s the ultimate sports car experience. Completely driver-centric and performance oriented, the 540C coupe is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road. Being light weight with a high power to weight ratio, it delivers a super car punch that would shame many more expensive rivals.
The Huayra BC is the most technologically advanced Huayra Coupé yet, introducing innovative technical solutions which will be applied in the Pagani cars of the future. This not just a “restyling” of the Huayra, but a product that includes innovative changes in every part of the vehicle. It’s a car that has a completely different personality to that of the Huayra Coupé. Conceived primarily as road going car that will give the maximum exhilaration and performance during track days and special events, the Huayra BC has been inspired by its “track focused” predecessors: the Pagani Zonda R and the Zonda Cinque. In recent years we have been presented with products that have delivered a new direction for the supercar, introducing hybrid propulsion, a combination of combustion engine and electric motor.
Mercedes-AMG has created a truly unique and lightweight engine, a twin turbo with 730 HP and 1000 Nm of torque that perfectly complements the car giving a feeling that has motivated our research: that of the brute force of an airplane taking off.
The main focus was in a power delivery that was linear and not with lag, because that could potentially create safety problems or a continuous operation of electronic driving aids.
Mercedes-AMG already 5 years ago thought about the coming environmental restrictions by creating a 12-cylinder engine that is at the peak of efficiency in terms of CO2 and consumption.
The ideas were of including elliptical shapes reminding of our brand in the front and at the back, keeping the central exhaust as the completion of the line of the canopy, the line starting at the headlight area that continues and ends into the air intake. We also thought from the beginning of active aerodynamics. Flaps that are activated according to the study of results gathered through calculations and aerodynamic testing. The whole car is shaped as a wing so it was necessary to create a high front to reduce the length of the upper part of this wing to counteract lift. The active suspension in the front and the 4 flaps allow to optimally balance the drag coefficient and downforce.
