From the aerodynamics to its exterior and interior design, and right down to its tiniest part, the Roadster BC’s chemistry and combination of advanced composite materials are unprecedented. Also, the elements that escape the eye of the expert have been optimized to offer genuine emotions and reach new horizons on multiple fronts.
Like in a sophisticated watch, every single component of the Roadster BC is a concentration of Pagani Automobili’s ultimate design, technology and engineering expertise encapsulated in just 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs). Let’s get more details of the features offered by this awesome sportscar.
The Roadster BC was designed to generate an aerodynamic load with a downforce target of 500 kg at 280 km/h (1,102 lbs at 174 mph), while maintaining a ground clearance that will allow passengers to enjoy driving at its finest, whether it’s on public roads or racetracks. Besides, the active aerodynamics system combined with its dynamic suspensions enhances the car stability by adapting its aerodynamic setup to suit specific driving requirements.
The Roadster BC offers you maximum control during a thrilling experience, especially when the new Titanium six-exhaust pipe system starts to exalt the roar of the Pagani twelve-cylinder engine. For the first time in Pagani Automobili, this exhaust system features two extra direct outlets from the catalytic converters to exploit the blown diffuser principle and generate further downforce.
Chassis and Materials
The Roadster BC features new, exclusive composite technologies based on carbon fibre and carbon-titanium that offer an increase of 2% in torsional rigidity and 20% in flexional rigidity compared to Pagani Automobili’s state of the art technology till today. This increase in the mechanical properties of the materials applied, in particular in the chassis torsional and flexional rigidity, also allows its dynamic response to be augmented when driving, as well as its safety in critical conditions.
Engine and Transmission
A completely new engine that boasts a level of power and elasticity at 800 hp and a torque of 1,050 NM already at 2,000 rpm with the latest international carbon footprint and gas emission standards. It features a set of innovations, including two new turbos, a revolutionary hydroformed manifold, twin throttle bodies and four water- air intercoolers; all of this supported by a sophisticated electronic system designed by Bosch for making the maximum use of its potential.
The Pagani by Xtrac transverse seven-speed sequential gearbox allows all the power and exceptional reactivity of the Pagani V12 to be transferred to the road.
Tyres and Rims
The Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tyres, tailor-made for the Roadster BC, the aim of the project was to create a tyre that would combine high performance. Remarkable results were achieved on a number of major test tracks, where the ultimate Pirelli tyres performed outstandingly: millimetric precision in bends and an incredible grip allowing a lateral acceleration of 1.9 g during constant running, with peaks of 2.2 g, and a longitudinal deceleration of 2.2 g.
While the rims developed together with APP are made of forged Avional alloy. With a lightweight manual finish 14-spoke design, they express at a glance all the Roadster BC’s character and elegance.
The Roadster BC is fitted with a Pagani by Brembo carbon-ceramic system measuring 398x36mm at the front with a 6-piston one-piece caliper brake and 380x34mm at the rear with a 4-piston one-piece caliper. Once again, the most advanced technology hand-in-hand with fascinating design.
Stepping into the Roadster BC is a sensory experience combining elements that tribute to the past legends of motorsports and Gran Turismo with present and future features. Elegance and style are transmitted by materials like the carbo-wood and finely embossed leather, as well as by mechanisms such as the racing style, four-point seatbelt and sophisticated accessories like the nine-channel audio system
