It’s hard to believe, but the Pagani Huayra, is already 10-years old – where did the time go? Anyway, to mark this momentous occasion, the Italian supercar maker will be unveiling a special “Pacchetto Tempesta” (Storm Package) edition of its 20-units-only Huayra BC at the 2021 Monterey Car Week.
In essence, the Pacchetto Tempesta takes the already hardcore Huayra BC, and turns it up one notch higher – both inside and out. Take for example, the Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine, which has been bumped up in power by over 8% (!), now making 827 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque.
If that figure sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same exact power output as the Pagani Huayra Imola, a limited edition model that was restricted to just five units. And just because it’s a special engine, the Huayra BC Pacchetto Tempesta also gets a new six-pipe exhaust system – four in the iconic central stack, and two at the bottom – to fully extend the engine’s vocal cords.
Other enhancements on the Pacchetto Tempesta edition include a new rear wing with an integrated central fin, alongside a new front splitter with a dedicated air intake to maximise aerodynamic efficiency. A new set of Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres were also specifically formulated for the Pacchetto Tempesta, using modelling from Formula 1 tech.
Pagani says that the package is designed to further unleash the car’s “true racing attitude”, although its list of upgrades also includes things like a new set of suspension and a new “Soft Driving” mode, designed specifically to enhance comfort… so, the best of both worlds? Well, we’ll never get to drive one, so I guess we’ll just have to take their word for it.
