Pagani is working on a new Huayra variant, as evidenced by the handful of prototypes spotted across Europe in 2015. This week, the Italian supercar marque dropped the first teaser shot which shows the massive rear wing previously seen on a prototype testing hard at the San Martino del Lago race track in Italy’s north.
With the regular Huayra now embarrassingly outpaced by rivals, it makes sense that Pagani will want to offer a more potent version. Expect power from the car’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 engine to be increased beyond the regular Huayra’s 720 horsepower. Meanwhile, new aerodynamic elements such as the aforementioned rear wing plus an extended front splitter should help boost downforce.
In addition to the teaser, Pagani left the message, “2016 is coming.” The automaker also left the social media tag “#huayrabc,” perhaps hinting that the new Huayra variant will wear a “BC” badge.
We’ll have more details soon as Pagani will most likely be unveiling the car at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in early March. For more coverage on the event, head to our dedicated hub.
