The New Pagani Huayra BC Is A Lean, Mean, Horsepower Machine

Full screen

If Pagani’s powerful Huayra was a bodybuilder, the Huayra BC would be Arnold in his prime. The Italian automaker’s latest is a ripped and shredded beast – somehow even more so than its predecessor, which was already shockingly light and powerful.

The Pagani Huayra BC has been fitted with an AMG-derived biturbo 6.0-litre V12, capable of outputting 60 more horses than the Huayra for a total of 789 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. The transmission’s updates include revised hydraulic actuation, faster shifts, and carbon fiber synchros.

Along with those internal upgrades comes a leaner, lighter body. The Huayra BC drops 132 kg, making it a featherweight at only 1,218 kg. The supercar owes its significant weight loss in part to a new type of carbon fiber that’s allegedly 50 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger than its original form.

As for the name, the ‘BC’ stands for ‘Benny Caiola,’ a wealthy Italian car collector and New York City real estate magnate who was friends with Pagani’s founder, Horacio Pagani. Caiola was Pagani’s first customer, and the new car is a tribute to him in the wake of his death in 2010.

The Pagani Huayra BC is set to make its public debut on March 1 at the Geneva Motor Show.
