Pagani Huayra BC Lands in Geneva, Is Nothing Short of Breathtaking

When was the last time you did something truly special for a friend? Was your effort spectacular? Here's something that will force most of us to answer the second question with a big, fat "no."

We're talking about Pagani's latest contraption, the Huayra BC. Essentially a spiced-up version of the already manic Huayra, this (extra-) limited edition has borrowed the initials of Benny Caiola, Pagani's first customer and a good friend of Horacio Pagani.

Sure, the Huayra BC is scheduled to greet the world in Geneva tomorrow, but the hypercar has already been caught on camera while sitting on the show's floor.

While you can easily recognize the BC thanks to the not-your-average-supercar-wing aerodynamic element at its tail, Pagani explains the roof is the only panel the BC and the non-BC Huayras share.

The changes have also targeted the twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 occupying the middle section of the machine, while the gearbox, a 7-speed automated manual, has been updated. Also, there's a new electronic active rear diff.

Thanks to an output premium of 60 hp and 73 lb-ft (98 Nm), the Huayra BC exposes its driver to 789 hp and 811 lb-ft (1,098 Nm) of twist.

Since the carbon construction of the car has brought the weight down to 2,685 lbs (1,218 kg), expect the yet-unannounced performance figures to be nothing short of delicious. For the sake of comparison, we'll mention the "standard" Huayra tips the scales at 2,976 lbs (1,350 kg).

Pagani will only build twenty units of the Huayra BC, so you'd better pay close attention to this piece of footage, as spotting the thing in the metal won't be too easy.

With a price of $2.55 million, such a piece might seem expensive to certain people. Then again, nobody will be able to complain, especially since the entire production is already sold out.

Nevertheless, if you happen to be a member of the rare, almost secret society that would've acquired one of these and has missed the opportunity, perhaps the upcoming Huayra Roadster will float your boat. Sorry, we meant to say yacht.
