This is the closest thing you’ll ever come to owning your own Huayra Roadster

As expected, the Pagani Huayra Roadster made a heck of an impression at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It came with a revised design that featured, among other things, a new fascia, two removable roof panels, and nacelles behind each seat. It also featured a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 6.0-liter biturbo V-12 engine that pumps out 752 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. Most of all, even with the Roadster configuration, it still managed to shed off 176 pounds compared to the coupe, thanks in large part to the abundance of carbon fiber and titanium used in the car. Knowing all of this makes the Huayra Roadster a must-have supercar. And no more is that true than with Pagani’s claim that all 100 units of the supercar are already spoken for, leaving the rest of us peasants with nothing more than an online configurator to turn our dreams of owning one into (virtual) reality.

On the contrary, the online configurator is actually a very good thing, because not a lot of us have $2.4 million to spend on the car. Luckily the alternative is rather fun, especially since it costs about as much as the oxygen that you’re inhaling right now.

Like most online configurators, the one for the Huayra Roadster is easy to navigate. You can pick from as many as 20 different color schemes, each having its own appeal. There’s also a choice of four different wheels and three interior trims, all of which you can mix and match to create the Huayra Roadster of your dreams.

Apparently, Pagani even keeps track of those who play with the online configurator, ranking the combinations that were used depending on popularity. At the moment, everybody seems to be on the hook for the Blu Francia-colored Huayra Roadster, which occupies the top four spots in the leaderboard of sorts. That’s hardly a surprising turn of events because it’s the same color Pagani used on the press shots of the supercar. The top combination not only makes use of the Blue Francia paint, but it also comes with Transparent Black Mamba gloss exterior, Black alloy wheels, and a Black interior trim.

Are you in favor of this combination for the Huayra Roadster, or are you digging the convertible supercar in another garb? Go to the online configurator and find out.

Naked carbon fiber for me, please!

I’m steering away from the skid here and created a less popular version of the Huayra Roadster, at least compared to the leaderboard of most sought-after configurations of the supercar. Off the bat, I did away with the Francia Blue body finish on the supercar in favor of getting the naked carbon fiber gloss finish. Yes, naked carbon fiber is awesome, especially on a car that looks ready to throw down like the Huayra Roadster. As for the wheels, I chose gold to add some style and panache to the exterior. The combination works well because neither are flashy to the point of being distracting, but are still eye-catchy enough to demand attention from anybody who sees it.

As for the interior, I opted for the natural suede trim to create a similar aesthetic balance in the cabin. I’m aware that the shade of the suede doesn’t match with the gold wheels, but I don’t mind that one bit. Besides, a white interior is going to be difficult to clean and a black interior is a little too dark for my tastes, especially with the presence of the naked carbon fiber in the body. I don’t like the interior of my (virtual) Huayra Roadster to be steeped in too much darkness. The suede, on the other hand, gives some life to the interior, even though I’m well aware that I should never let my Huayra Roadster get caught in a downpour without its roof. If that happens, choosing suede is going to come back and bite me in my posterior.

My configuration of the Huayra Roadster is not a popular one it seems, but I’m not too worried about that. I’m just excited that I get to have my own, even if it means that by definition, “owning it” means being able to use it as a wallpaper on my computer as opposed to actually waiting for one to put in my garage. The latter is never going to happen, so I’ll take what I can get.
