Pagani Huayra Pacheto Tempesta, a Retrofit Track Pack with Monster Exhaust

Pagani may have gifted the Geneva Motor Show with the Huayra BC, but the even-spicier model only comes in 20 units, all of which are already sold. Nevertheless, the Italian exotic builder was considerate enough to give the 100 existing Huayra customers something to think about.

We're referring to the retrofittable Pacheto Tempesta, which adds downforce, reduces weight, sharpens up the handling and introduces an exhaust system that allows the AMG-sourced twin-turbo V12 to be even more vocal.

Consider this as some sort of a track pack for those who want to extract even more performance from the Huayras.

If you ask the Italians, every piece they build is unique, but you won't have trouble spotting the cars fitted with this new package. That comes thanks to the massive front splitter and rear diffuser.

However, the carbon composite armor, which the automaker has co-developed with Dallara for the Huayra BC, also includes a completely redesigned underbody.

While the exact value of the extra downforce isn't specified, this has required the suspension to be massaged. As a result, we get new a4-way adjustable Ohlins shocks that are even less tolerant to body roll than the units on the standard car, if we may call the Huayra that.

The Tempesta treatment also brings larger wheels, with the front axle getting 20-inch units and the rear axle receiving 21-inch rims. Despite the increase in size, the forged aluminum alloy construction means each front wheel is 2.4 lbs (1.1 kg) lighter, while the difference jumps to 5.5 lbs (2.5 kg) for the rear wheels.

Pagani aficionados will also be able to track down a Tempesta thanks to its soundtrack. A new titanium exhaust system will take care of that. Tipping the scales at 15.4 lbs (7 kg), the system is some 40% lighter than the already feather-category hardware on the normal Huayra.

While Pagani has swiped us off our feet with a Huayra Pacheto Tempesta on the Geneva floor, customers will have to wait until mid-April to retrofit this. Until then, we're inviting you to check out the live photos, as well as the 360-degree video below.
