Pagani Huayra Roadster

The Huayra Roadster uses a Mercedes-Benz six-liter V12 engine with twin turbos. It churns out 764 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque. All that power is packed into Pagani’s carbo-titanium monocoque and allied to a seven speed X-Trac gearbox. The suspension and wheels are aluminum alloy. Even the removable roof is carbon fiber.

To keep all that carbon fiber on the asphalt, Pagani installed active aerodynamics: Four flaps move independently, manipulating air to increase downforce.

380mm carbon ceramic Brembos front and back (six-pot calipers on the fronts, four-pot at the rear) are housed inside forged aluminium monolithic 20/21in wheels.
100 Huayra Roadsters will be built, with each one costing a nearly insignificant €2,280,000. Gotta have one? Too late, they are sold old.
