New Pagani Huayra Roadster features drop-top and 764 horsepower

It must be Valentine’s Day, because we’re falling in love with the new Pagani Huayra Roadster.

Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show next month, the new model has been unveiled, and it’s a thing of beauty.

The latest model features a drop-top to better accentuate the car’s beautiful deep blue paint job, something that’ll look good driving down the coast or through a secluded vineyard. Attendees of the Geneva Motor Show will get to see the Huayra Roadster in the flesh in March.

While the new model looks like it’s getting nothing more than a convertible upgrade, the Roadster is actually lighter and more durable than a normal Huayra. Using a carbon fiber-titanium hybrid material known as Carbo-Triax HP52, the Huarya Roadster weighs nearly 200 pounds less than the Coupe.

The new Roadster also comes packing a 7-speed sequential gearbox and the Mercedes-AMG-built twin-turbo V12 engine, which is good for 764 horsepower. Buyers have two different roofs to choose from; one is made from carbon fiber with a glass window and the other is fabric, which can be stored in the car.

It’s a thing of beauty

The automaker plans to build 100 of the Huayra Roadster at about $2.4 million a pop. Sadly, all of them have already been sold, so you’ve already missed your window of opportunity.

At least we have these pictures to gawk at.
