Tsuchiya to drive a Pagani Huayra BC at WTAC


Feast your eyes on this piece of automotive art. What you’re looking at is the recently released Pagani supercar – the Huayra BC.

The car looks absolutely stunning in pictures but in October you will be able to get up close and personal with it as the Italian manufacturer will have its latest creation on display both Friday and Saturday right the middle of the WTAC Pit Zone. But it gets better…


“The Huayra BC is much more than just a beautiful, expensive car that’s been designed with a race track in mind, and we want to showcase the car in it’s natural habitat – on a race track.” Pagani Automobili


And who could be better suited to drive this Italian thoroughbred around SMSP than the Japanese racing legend Keichii Tsuchiya.

“Tsuchiya-san is a perfect choice. With his Le Mans, and Japanese Super GT experience, he will be able to get the most out of the car.” said WTAC CEO, Ian Baker. Tsuchiya-san will take the Huayra BC for a full noise lap during Midday Mayhem on both Friday and Saturday.


With only 20 units ever to be made and a price tag of almost $3,000,000 (three million), the Pagani Huayra BC is one of the most sought after and exclusive supercars in the world today.


Named after the very first customer of Pagani Automobile, Benny Caiola whose initials (BC) form part of the car’s name, Huayra BC can only be described as automotive art with a perfect blend of styling, engineering and raw performance.


The car oozes quality and prestige. From the overall design, stance and beautiful, aerodynamic shape to every single, minute detail.


While it has been designed as a road going car, Huayra BC’s focus is very much on a race track. This is evident when you look at the powerplant. The 5980cc, Mercedes-Benz/AMG V12 engine delivers in excess of 750hp and over 1000Nm of torque.


That power combined with the car’s weight of just 1218kg gives it a killer power-to-weight ratio.


The chassis is a Pagani carbo-titanium monocoque with front and rear frame in steel tubes. Transmission is an AMT 7 speed with electronic mechanical differential.


Slowing this beast down are 4 ventilated Brembo CCM brakes. 380x34mm, 6 piston at the front and 4 piston at the back. State of the art four wheel independent double wishbone suspension is completed with a set of fully adjustable Ohlins.


The car will be on display in a special Pagani display area both days and will take to the track during the Midday Mayhem. But we’ve left the best news till last…
