Pagani Huayra BC Goes Drifting on Ice to Prove It's Winter-Proof

When you drive a Pagani Huayra, be it a BC or a "standard" model, winter is a difficult season. Sure, there are overly polished SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, but you'll still be thinking about your hypercar as you sit high in your cold season vehicle.

Fortunately, we're not trying to sugarcoat the idea of a Pagani SUV (thank God for that!). Instead, the Italian automaker has recently shown us the extra velocity injected into the Beny Caiola flavor of the Huayra doesn't mean the machine is scared of snow and ice.

As such, Pagani has released a video that shows the Huayra BC asking its rear wheels to cope with a mix between its 789 hp and the slippery driving surface provided by Bosch's testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Since all Huayra versions saw Pagani teaming up with Bosch for the electronic nannies, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the BC dancing gracefully close to the Arctic Circle.

The piece of footage below allows you to check out a Huayra BC prototype performing calibration tests, as well as simply going sideways at the said location.

We'll take the time to remind you only twenty people in the world can look at this footage and wonder if they could replicate the action in their Huayra BC. The limited edition of the hypercar is dedicated to the late Benny Caiola, who was a close friend of Horacio Pagani and the carmaker's first customer.

The BC ticks all the right boxes. It's not only more powerful and lighter than the "normal" Huayra but it also ups the ante in terms of aerodynamics and torsional rigidity. Huayra customers have been offered the Pacchetto Tempesta retrofittable upgrade, though.

Then there's the sheer soundtrack of the thing, but that's another story for another time.
