Pagani revealed a lighter, more powerful, track ready model, the Huayra BC. It is the most rawest and most track-ready version of any supercar.
What does ‘BC’ stand for? Those are the initials of Benny Caiola; late New York City property developer, famed Ferrari collector, and Horacio Pagani’s very first customer. Benny, who had immigrated to the US from his native Sicily, Italy, was a mentor to Horacio over the years, and picked up a few other Paganis along the way. He always put pressure on Horacio to make more track-focused versions of his cars, so the BC is a beautiful homage to Benny’s passion for driving. He’s also the reason why the car was unveiled in Sicily.- SpeedHunters
The Huayra BC has a new electronic rear differential, new tripod axle drive shafts, bespoke forged aluminum suspension components including new uprights, a titanium exhaust that “becomes even more intense and exciting” according to Pagani and sheds 15 pounds from an old Huayra, a big wing at the back, a splitter at the front, all new body panels short of the roof, and a track mode for the traction control.- Jalopnic
Pagani were more focused on reducing the Huayra’s weight and improving its handling rather then adding more power. The car is made of carbon fiber and titanium. It still has its 6.0-liter AMG V12 recipe, and only makes 60 extra horsepower than the standard Huayra. The output is 789 horsepower and 811lb.-ft. of torque.
The gearbox and a new active electronic differential weigh 40% less than before and the new suspension components weight 25% less. It gets a new exhaust that’s significantly lighter than before, as well as lightweight alloy wheels. The interior gets stripped out to save weight, as well.
Pagani made the Huayra BC an astonishing 132kg lighter than the standard Huayra, bringing its weight down to 1218kg
EVO reports that the car will go for €2.35 million, or about $2.6 USD. That’s a lot, but only 20 examples will get made. Of course all the cool tech on this car will likely show up in later Huayras, but that’s not the point.
