My friend Mike @shinmikeyin has put a straight pipe exhaust on his Huayra BC! After a run out to hear what it’s like, we can also remove the roof from the Huayra Roadster BC for a first back to back experience of the two. And that isn’t even all that’s around!
A few days after going out with Mike in his newly acquired Zonda R on track, this time around we’re over to Aerowerkz to check out his Huayra BC. It’s the same car I drove with him a few years ago, except now he’s straight piped it! Not only that, but his friend’s stunning green Huayra Roadster BC is also present for PPF and looking incredible as always.
The BC Coupe is one of only 20 made of the more hardcore Huayra model, named after Pagani’s first ever customer, Benny Caiola. However, when it’s parked alongside the newest model, the one of 40 of the Roadster BC you can start to appreciate that these are fundamentally different cars. Unlike most convertibles where it’s a case of removing the roof from the existing Coupe model, the Roadster BC has a very different configuration and even engine setup.
After checking out the cars in some awesome company with the Bugatti Divo, Lamborghini Sian and Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, it’s time to get out on the road for a run with Mike firstly with him taking the wheel of the BC. After a swap around for me to experience it, we then take the roof off the Roadster BC to see what the difference is like – and it’s quite surprising…
A huge thanks as always to my good friend Mike for some great hypercar fun! Check him out at http://instagram.com/shinmikeyin
Thanks for watching, Tim
