Pagani Automobili de ses début à maintenant, de la Zonda à la Huayra
Design Pagani Huayra Roadster
The objective is always to outdo oneself. Pure beauty in all shapes and surfaces- this is the philosophy behind Horacio Pagani’s latest creation. From this foundation is built a masterpiece with a perfect balance of attention to detail and technological advancement. The combination of Art and Science: a founding principle and cornerstone to the philosophy of Pagani Automobili. This creed comes from the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, who pursued perfection in form and function at every stage of the process, down to the most minute component of the design. All Pagani creations are born from this relentless chase of beauty and passion. The Huayra Roadster represents an unbridled artistic showcase, featuring the most dynamic technology; this is Horacio Pagani’s open-air tribute to the gods of wind.
First presented to the public in Geneva in 2011, the Pagani Huayra Coupe marked a new era of hypercars. The Huayra Coupe became the gold standard, raising the bar for lightweight build and innovative performance-based technology. This formidable combination earned the Huayra Coupe the most accolades in the automobile industry, second only to the Zonda.
The Huayra BC was a natural evolution, raw power packaged into a 1,218 kg high-performance automobile, and, at 1.8 G, capable of the highest lateral acceleration ever seen on a car with road tires. Valuable experience and knowledge gained from relentless testing on the road and the most difficult circuits of the world, enabled Pagani Automobili to build a solid technical premise from which to base all Research and Development. This foundation and expertise was crucial in the development of the technical solutions applied to the Huayra Roadster.

Huayra, the god of wind. With the Huayra Coupe Pagani Automobili was the first automaker to develop a fully computerised Active Aerodynamic system on a production car. The concept has been further developed on the Huayra BC and brought to excellence on the Huayra Roadster.
Four flaps, two in the front and two in the rear, together with the front active suspension, work independently to ensure continuous optimum safety and a considerable performance in all conditions. The active aerodynamic system works to keep the bottom of the vehicle always parallel to the road, increasing the efficiency of the air flows above and below the car, ensuring an optimal downforce on both road and track.
Beauty as a marriage of form and function: the central front section, the front extractors and a flat bottom. Always well-defined lines. A great work of study, simulation and testing on 1:1 scale models in the wind tunnel, has been done to minimize turbulence and air flows which generally occur in an open-top car at the rear roll bar and front window level. The work carried out to ensure the Huayra Roadster with efficient downforce under all conditions, has proved very important and took a long time and concentration. But it went hand in hand with the concept of style, creating a sinuous but defined shape, which reveals the dynamic and performance qualities of Huayra Roadster.
Pagani Huayra Roadster will be fitted with two types of roof. The first consists in a very light carbon hard top with a central glass element, very simple and quick to install. In this configuration it assumes the look of a coupe, with a glass roof that provides the passenger a unique brightness, protecting them from UV rays and also giving a sense of freedom typical of a Roadster even with the installed hard roof. The second type of roof is a fabric and carbon cover that can be easily installed manually and can be stored inside of Huayra Roadster. The Soft Roof can be installed in a few simple steps.
“This is the most complicated project we have ever undertaken.
…So everything had to come together as if it was a car carved out of a block of Carrara marble…
…The pursuit of beauty as a fundamental concept, an unbridled work of art, intelligence and open-air passion…”
– Horacio Pagani
Moteur Pagani Huayra Roadster
En partenariat avec Mercedes-AMG depuis 1994, le coeur de la bête ou de la belle reste le V12 6.0L de Mercedes-AMG conçu à Affalterbach. La puissance a monté à 764 chevaux, pour un couple épique de 1000 Nm ! En position longitudinale et centrale, le moteur envoie la puissance aux roues arrière via une boîte à 7 rapports.
La boîte de vitesses séquentielle à sept rapports fournie par Xtrac est montée transversalement car l’adoption d’un mécanisme à double embrayage aurait augmenté le poids de 70 kg. En outre la transmission de Xtrac, contrairement aux systèmes à double embrayage, est capable de gérer l’énorme quantité de couple (1 000 Nm) du moteur AMG.
Pagani Huayra Roadster è spinta dalla potenza del motore Mercedes-AMG M158. Un propulsore a dodici cilindri, costruito specificatamente da Mercedes-AMG per Pagani Automobili che beneficia dello sviluppo fatto per Huayra BC, erogando una potenza di 764 cv a 6200 giri al minuto ed una coppia di oltre 1000 NM disponibili già a 2400 giri. Dotato della più moderna tecnologia disponibile, il motore biturbo 12 cilindri a V di 60 gradi con 5980 cm3 di cilindrata.
The Pagani Huayra Roadster is powered by the Mercedes-AMG M158 engine. The twelve-cylinder engine, built specifically for Pagani by Mercedes-AMG, has benefitted from the research and development done for the Huayra BC, delivering power of 764 HP at 6200 RPM, with a torque of over 1000 NM already available at 2400 RPM.
Equipped with the most cutting edge technology, the twin-turbo, 12 cylinder, narrow angled 60 degree engine with 5,980 cm3 has been developed to satisfy both the international homologation standards and the even more stringent Pagani internal standards, resulting in a driving experience both relaxed and electrifying.
The turbines have been developed to provide an immediate throttle response without delay, providing the driver with full control of the vehicle. The dry sump lubrication allows for perfect engine response, even under the most extreme lateral acceleration conditions. The M158 motor is approved for the most restrictive EURO 6b and Carb environment regulations.
The bonnet has a fundamental function: an elegant vitrine containing both the technology and the art of the engine. By natural evolution, its design took on a life of its own, becoming a space with its own stylistic identity, itself worthy of being exhibited in an art gallery.
The extraordinary power and torque of the Huayra Roadster is powered by a new gearbox seven-speed AMT successfully developed for the Huayra BC. Built by X-Track, it incorporates a hydraulic and electronic activation system and is combined with new carbon synchronizers, resulting in seamless and absolute precision when shifting, thanks also to the development of a new ECU together with Automac. The differential is electronic, with an advanced control system developed in conjunction with Bosch, ensuring adaptation to all possible driving conditions: from day to day drivability to track performance, always providing driver stability and exceptional vehicle safety.
The weight of entire unit, including the electronic differential, is approximately 40% less than the standard dual-clutch gearbox. The gearbox itself is mounted in a transverse position, significantly reducing the polar inertia of the entire vehicle and moving optimally at the center of gravity of the car. This results in a safe understeering response of the Huayra Roadster, ensuring comfort and safety for road driving and predictable behavior and control on the track.
Châssis Pagani Huayra Roadster
L’atelier de San Cesario sul Panaro de la Pagani Huayra Roadster utilise du carbo-titanium et le matériau ‘carbo-Triax HP52’ pour son châssis monocoque. Ces matériaux permettent au cabriolet d’être 52 % plus rigide que le coupé. Tout en étant plus léger avec un poids à sec de 1280 kg. Horacio Pagani a été pionnier dans le domaine de la fibre de carbone depuis la création de sa société Pagani Composite Research créé en 1988.
One of the ambitious goals set at the beginning of the project was to build a Roadster that would be lighter than the Coupe, improving the torsional rigidity of the frame. Armed with the expertise gained from the Zonda R, Huayra Coupe and the Huayra BC, the Pagani engineering team further refined the development of carbo-titanium. Combined with a new form of composite material and developed for the Huayra Roadster, it is considered more advanced than materials used for Formula 1 cars. This complex and highly ambitious undertaking has allowed for a 52% increase in stiffness, at the same weight, thanks to the combination of the Carbo-Titanium and the Carbo-Triax HP52. The dry weight of the Huayra Roadster measures 1,280kg, about 80kg less than the Huayra Coupe, while also increasing in torsional flexional rigidity – an incredible achievement by its own right, from a purely technical standpoint.
The refinement of the suspension of Pagani Automobili creations has always been a point of pride and a key component in the design of the cars signed by Horacio Pagani. In the same way the development of the technology behind the Zonda R flowed naturally into the development of the technology of the Huayra Coupe, the Huayra BC development was the staging ground for the Huayra Roadster. Every concept learned from the previous model is applied and further developed for the new model. All of the suspension assembly is a work of art and a concentration of the latest technology, made in a lightweight aluminum alloy, called HiForg, designed specifically for the Huayra Roadster. This lightened the car by 25%, compared to the Huayra coupe, an extraordinary result for a car already considered the paragon in optimizing power-weight ratio. This sophisticated and technological marvel enables in the Huayra Roadster perfect behavior under any driving situation.
Team up Brembo & Pirelli
Les freins fournis par Brembo se composent de 4 disques en carbone céramique de 380 mm avec étriers à 6 pistons à l’avant 4 pistons à l’arrière. Pirelli a développé un pneu spécifique pour le Roadster, identifié sur le flanc du pneu par les initiales « HP » du maestro.
A long time partner of Pagani, Brembo has always delivered outstanding performance to Pagani cars. Since the Zonda F in 2006, Pagani cars have some of the shortest recorded stopping distances for 100-0 and 200-0. Certainly, the lightweight form of the car helps, but the results are a testament to the power and efficacy of the braking system. For the Huayra Roadster, Brembo has developed a new carbon ceramic (CCM) implant with 380×34 mm and a 6-piston caliper in the front and 380×34 mm, 4-piston caliper at the rear.
The design of the caliper has been developed by Pagani and Brembo to decrease as much as possible the weight of the unsprung mass, resulting in a perfect balance of beauty and technological advancement. The most advanced brake caliper Brembo has ever created.
This is the famous mantra that drove the Pirelli engineers to sculpt and design a specific rubber for the Huayra Roadster tires, allowing the vehicle to achieve an incredible performance of 1.8 g of lateral force. Performance was not the only factor in consideration for the development of the new tire; the Pirelli PZero Corsa for the Huayra Roadster was also designed to have a lower rolling resistance, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
Developed and built inside Pirelli “MIRS” Modular Integrated Robotized System, the department for the manufacturing of high performance tires, the new Pirelli PZero Corsa measures 21 inches in the rear and 20 inches in the front. Developed along with Horacio Pagani, the tire displays for the first time the “HP” logo on the shoulder.
Continuing intensive development over the past five years, Pagani Automobili and Bosch have developed a new ESP system for the Huayra Roadster – an electronic stability control system enhancing the dynamic capabilities of the Huayra Roadster without ever being invasive, without ever giving the impression that any power other than the pilot himself has control of the vehicle. The system is a natural extension of the dynamic abilities of the car.
It has always been a baseline requirement from the earliest design phases that the car must be mechanically sound with safe understeering, before starting the development of electronic control systems.
The development started on the Huayra BC and was refined for the characteristics of the Huayra Roadster, leading to the identification of five distinct driving modes: Wet, Comfort, Sport, Race and ESC Off. Each with its own soul, fully maximizing the potential of the latest creation from the atelier of San Cesario sul Panaro.
