For sale: first ever Pagani Huayra Roadster
You read that correctly folks: the very first Pagani Huayra Roadster to roll off the production line is now listed for sale, awaiting purchase by its lucky - and rich (same thing) - new owner.
As we can see from the photographs, chassis numero uno is painted in a shade of white that even a toilet duck would struggle to match. While it may require the use of sunglasses for anybody suffering with glaucoma, in combination with the matching interior, it offers a level and type of beauty only available with Paganis. It’s breathtaking!
Using the same 6L Twin-Turbo AMG V12 as all Huayras, the Roadster’s is marginally more potent than the one found in the original coupe. Producing 754bhp, and 738lb-ft of torque, the throttle acts like a switch on a teleportation capsule. With all this oomph being sent to the rear wheels alone however, caution is advised before exploring this car’s potential.
Pagani hasn’t released information on how many of the 100 Roadsters available have been sold - but we do know that if you were to order one today, you wouldn’t receive it until some time in the next decade. Dreadfully indistinct as that sentence is, it shows just how long you’d have to wait to get yourself one from Pagani directly. What price would you put on being able to skip the queue and have one now?
Straight from Pagani, you can expect to pay just under £1.9million ($2.4million) for a Roadster. While the showroom in Riyadh that currently has this one for sale refuses to list the price, it is thought to be substantially more. Who knows though: they might accept a cheeky offer (!)
