Pagani Huayra Roadster Unveiled for Customers during New Factory Grand Opening

If you happen to live in San Cesario sul Panaro, Italy and were wondering why you heard champagne bottles being opened in the industrial park last night, you should know it all has to do with Pagani.

The Italians held a massive celebration event on the evening of June 29, treating guests with a melange between the unveiling of the Huayra Roadster and the grand opening of the new factory.

The open-top Huayra was only there for customers' eyes and it's all explained in the leaked photo above, which brings us the invitation for the event (hat tip to Magazin ProDriver CZ for the pic).

The automaker's website also offers a clue on the topic: "Please be informed that factory tours [an opportunity usually provided by Pagani] will be suspended from June 10 to July 17 in order to allow all departments to move to a new facility under construction."

As a slightly amusing detail, while aficionados will "recognize" the tail of the new Huayra, with an exposed carbon take that includes the exhaust tips, here's what Google thinks this is: run the pic though the tech giant's reverse image search and the result will be "piano".

We can't hold anything against the search engine's algorithms, though, as any machine delivered by Horacio Pagani's company can be considered a piece of art. Besides, carbon fiber pianos do exist and perhaps such an instrument could superbly accompany the voice of the AMG-supplied twin-turbo V12 motivating the Huayra.

On a more serious note, the new factory, which sits next to the old shop (some 600 feet away) is a major step in the automaker's development. While Pagani will only build 100 units of the Huayra Roadster, as in the case of the Coupe, the new site sees the company's annual production capacity jumping to anywhere between 200 and 300 machines - keep in mind Pagani's yearly production figures used to be expressed with modest double-digit numbers.

With Pagani having launched Huayra BC (20 units) and the retrofittable Tempesta package for the Huayra Coupe, we can't wait to get our hands on the official info for the Roadster and see what happens once the open-top model starts receiving its updates.
