The Pagani Huayra Roadster BC crushed the competition at Spa Francorchamps
With a lap time that leaves the McLaren Senna and the Koenigsegg One: 1 !!!!
Pagani struck a big blow.
In fact, on September 4th, the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC set the lap record on the Spa Francorchamps circuit, and quite unexpectedly.
This record actually came at the very end of the development phase of the Huayra Roadster BC (6 prototypes manufactured, 350,000 km traveled, 40,000 of which were on the circuit).
Here are the circumstances of the record, told by Andrea Palma, the test pilot of the transalpine manufacturer :
“During testing we immediately realized that the car was achieving some interesting lap times. We quickly consulted with Horacio on the possibility of making quick laps and, although the weather conditions were not the best, we even did set the track record after two laps. The car had shown formidable character, showing its potential and moving with impressive ease. Although the SPA Francorchamps is a complicated circuit, handling and grip side of the Roadster BC have exceeded all expectations"
The Huayra Roadster BC therefore had a time of 2'23 "08 beating at the same time the McLaren Senna (2'24" 82) and the Koenigsegg One: 1 (2'32 "14), and thus clinching the 1st place of the category "Road cars".
