Here's the 764-Horsepower Pagani Huayra Roadster

Pagani, the rather young 1990s-born Italian supercar maker that made its mark in the world with the Zonda and Huayra, has revealed its latest model: the Pagani Huayra Roadster.

"A 52% increase in stiffness, at the same weight, thanks to the combination of the Carbo-Titanium and the Carbo-Triax HP52", Pagani claims. This is the new Huayra Roadster (pronounced Way-rah, so you know, and named after the God of wind), which looks as glamorous and exotic as its £2.32m price suggests it should be. Pagani hasn't announced top speed or 0-60 time just yet.

"This lightened the vehicle by 25%, compared to the Huayra coupe, an extraordinary result for a auto already considered the paragon in optimizing power-weight ratio", says Pagani.

Pagani's €2.28m (£1.94m) Huayra Roadster hypercar has sold out before it even makes its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The roadster has been redesigned for improved aerodynamics, with a new rear diffuser and wider wheel arches, along with a new air intake and splitter. These materials have made the auto 52% stronger than the coupe - to make up for the loss of rigidity that comes from removing the roof - but without adding a single gram of extra weight. The front and rear substructures are made from steel tubing. More power and less weight (about 2,800 pounds total) mean the Roadster will be noticeably quicker than its fixed-roof counterpart.

Coming to the roof it doesn't get, it isn't a convertible so do not expect it to get a retractable roof.

The Huayra Roadster will come with two different types of removable roof.

The model comes with two different roofs, one made from carbon fiber and features a glass window, while the other is a fabric unit that can be stored in the vehicle.

The Mercedes-AMG M158 twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 was designed and built specifically for Pagani. In the Pagani roadster, this engine puts out 764 bhp and develops and monstrous 1000 Nm of torque from as low as 2400 rom. Power is delivered to the wheels by a seven-speed automated manual transaxle built by motorsports supplier Xtrac. There's also an electronically controlled limited-slip differential which was co-developed with Bosch. Brembo brakes - six-piston front and four-piston rear - haul the supercar down, and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires help it achieve an astounding 1.8g of lateral grip.
