Pagani Launches An Online Configurator For Huayra Roadster
Posted on March 18, 2017
All 100 units have already been sold, but why not give your imagination some fun?
Before it was even unveiled, we knew we could count on Horacio Pagani to develop one of the most lust-worthy cars to grace our pupils in the form of the Huayra Roadster. And then there’s the fact that it’s a marvel of modern engineering, with the Roaster weighing less than its coupe counterpart thanks to clever engineering. Immaculate design comes standard, as it should for a car costing $2.4 million, but we’re even more happy about the online configurator that has just gone live on Pagani's website.
That’s right, Pagani has decided to let us peasants get intimate with the car by launching an online configurator, allowing us to spend a few minutes (or hours, or days) customizing our dream Huayra Roadster. There are even buttons to activate the front and rear flaps, open the doors, and raise the front end and rear engine cover, exposing the beautiful bare carbon chassis underneath. This is one extra clue that shows us why Pagani is an automaker that’s in the game for the love of cars. After all it’s a bit hard to imagine any prospective customer being won over by a simple computer application. Even if you’re a multimillionaire who just now has been convinced to make a Huayra Roadster purchase, you’re out of luck.
That's because only 100 units are being made and all are spoken for. As comprehensive as it is, there is plenty lacking from this configurator because Pagani prides itself on bespoke handcrafted cars, meaning that no color scheme or material is off the books. Simply bring Pagani and idea and a briefcase (or wheelbarrow) full of cash and your wish is his command. Due to this simple fact, we were only able to spec out our dream Huayra Roadster to the extent you see here. Red is a perfect color to express Italian flair and an exposed carbon fiber bottom is a must given Pagani’s expertise with the material. Don’t like our Huayra Roadster? Then go spec your own and show us what you come up with.
