Pagani Huayra R Evo: removing the roof and taking it to the extreme

The Pagani Huayra is one of those cars that are practically works of art. Handmade in a very exclusive and limited way, with features that would excite anyone and with an evocative design no matter where you look at it. The small volume manufacturer, by focusing on only one model per era, can afford iterations like the one we see in the Pagani Huayra R Evo. It is the most radical specimen that arrives to surprise the world before they turn to Utopia.

If we already saw that the Pagani Huayra R was the variant that focused on the circuit, this new example is an evolution in every sense. Employ the base of the convertible to offer the maximum possible incentives to its buyers, who will continue with the program In Court Art of the brand to drive it in a series of non-competitive events with Pagani support included. In these experiences came the idea of ​​removing the roof, inspired by the Formula Indy cars and also by the Le Mans prototypes of the 60s and 70s, with their “codalunga”.

The Pagani Huayra R Evo comes out after two years of work to achieve superlative performance and a special design. On an aesthetic level That front part stands out with the marked air ducts that benefit both aerodynamics and cooling. The shapes of the hood are well recognizable, as are the headlights. The rear is stretched by 190 mm to follow the concept of the Huayra Codalunga and improve stability with the help of a gigantic spoiler added to a prominent diffuser that houses the four exhaust outlets in a central position.

It is what allows the gases produced during engine combustion to be expelled. 6.0 liter naturally aspirated V12. It is the same as its predecessor, but with a tune-up made with the help of HWA AG (developer of Mercedes-AMG) with which it gains power. Rise up to the 900 HP and 770 Nm of torqueassuming an increase of 50 HP compared to the Huayra R. It can go up to 9,200 rpm and improve components such as the intake manifold or camshafts, in addition to brand new ECU calibration and redesign of the exhaust system.

The result is that the Pagani Huayra R Evo is one of the most extreme convertibles of all time. Despite losing the roof, it has reinforced its rigidity and fine-tuned aerodynamics to increase load by 45% and efficiency by 21%. Although they do not provide data on its acceleration, they claim that it can reach a maximum speed of 350 km/h. Its handling will also be spectacular if we take into account that It weighs just 1,060 kg and that it has some components with a specific set-up to be up to par.

For example, the double wishbone suspension with coil springs and electronically controlled active dampers integrates a new hydraulic element to improve behavior. The braking system has new CCM-R self-ventilated carbon ceramic discs with greater capacity and better resistance to fatigue. This model is fitted with Pirelli P Zero Slick tires in size 280/680 R19 for the front axle and 345/725 R20 for the rear axle.

Finally, it should be said that the cabin of the Pagani Huayra R Evo is also newly created and has been focused on reducing your weight. Hence, it has advanced materials such as Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 for its safety cage or fire-retardant material upholstery and Ener-Core EC 50 foam for its seats with six-point harnesses.
