The Pagani Huayra BC, an even more hyper version of the company’s Huayra hypercar, is coming to Sydney for the World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC) in October.
Not only will the circa-$3 million vehicle be on display at the WTAC Pit Zone during the event, it will also hit the Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP) race track for a “full noise lap” during WTAC’s Midday Mayhem on both days of the event (14-15 October).
Behind the wheel of the ultra-exclusive Italian hypercar will be Japanese racing legend and ‘Drift King’, Keiichi Tsuchiya, best-known for his role in popularising drifting as a motorsport, along with his 1995 and 1999 class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Honda NSX (1995, GT2) and Toyota GT-One (1999, LMGTP).
Stopping power comes from six-piston 380mm front and four-pot 380mm rear discs courtesy of Brembo, housed in 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged alloy wheels.
The BC’s 225/30 (front) and 355/25 (rear) tyres were specially designed for the vehicle by Pirelli.
Performance figures for the Huayra BC are still yet to be confirmed, though it’s most likely quicker from 0-100km/h than the ‘standard’ Huayra, which claims a 3.3-second sprint, thanks to its increased power and significantly lighter 1218kg weight (down from 1350kg).
Only 20 examples of the BC are to be produced, making it one of the most exclusive and sought-after hypercars today.
The Pagani Huarya BC will be on display for the duration of the WTAC event, which takes place at Sydney Motorsport Park on Friday 14 October and Saturday 15 October.
