Pagani Huayra takes its top off for roadster edition

In the market for an utterly deranged roadster that accelerates so hard it will tear your head off? You will be pleased to know the Pagani Huayra roadster is up for the job.

While we wait for a Huayra replacement – whatever that may be – Pagani was happy to tell Autoblog the supercar will be losing its roof. Sadly, the roadster version will remain under wraps until the Geneva Motor Show in 2016.

All 100 orders for the Pagani Huayra coupe have been fulfilled, which means those wanting a 730hp supercar with a Mercedes-AMG V12 twin-turbo and 1,000Nm of torque will need to either dig very deep for a custom build, wait for the drop-top or hope the Nürburgring edition is more than just a rumour.

“It’s true, all of the Huayra coupes have been sold,” the Pagani press office confirmed.

Pagani also announced a second factory will be built very close to the current factory in Modena and that it will use the old one for research and development. Production will, however, remain at 45 cars per year for exclusivity reasons.

You might think removing the roof of a finely-honed race machine like the Huayra is a bad idea. We would argue its howling engine, 231mph top speed and 0 to 62mph time of 3.2 seconds will make it an utter delight, even if it ends up being a bit heavier than the usual 1,350kg.
