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.

"Through intense scientific research for developing the Carbo-Triax HP62 and Carbon-Titanium HP62 G2 formulas, we succeeded in achieving some extraordinary results that allowed us to reduce the weight of the vehicle considerably and optimise mechanical features. Even so, when we presented these achievements to Horacio, along with the fact that they involved a 450% increase in material costs, his reaction was, "the customer deserves even more!" - Francesco Perini, Head of Concept & Composite Design.

"What is great about this working relationship is that we have the same attitude. We're never satisfied with the status quo as Horacio Pagani always puts what is normally taken as proven to the test. I think that, together, we have always believed we could overcome even the most difficult challenge and attain ever-higher levels of perfection." - Tobias Moers

Know-how, tradition and over 125 years of technical history for Mercedes-Benz and 50 for AMG plus 20 years of close cooperation with Pagani, a universe of knowledge for giving birth to the Pagani V12. A completely new engine that boasts a level of power and elasticity that will glue drivers to their seat and leave its mark on their shoulders. 800 hp and a torque of 1,050 NM already at 2,000 rpm, with one of the best weight-power ratios in the category. The Pagani V12 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.

Last, but not least, this jewel complies with the latest international carbon footprint and gas emission standards, including California's environmental regulations, without having to resort to a hybrid system.

This vast enterprise of technological research was also applied to the suspension unit that has always been a technical prodigy and a source of pride for Pagani Automobili.

Roadster BC is trustworthy and exciting as it is the result of endless work on numerous elements: the rigidity of the chassis, the vehicle's dynamics, the elasto-kinematics of the suspension and the lowering of its centre of gravity and weight, to name just a few. Having explored, tested and perfected all these aspects, electronics were then added to further increase performance, stability and safety. These improved electronics not only reduce dive, squat and roll effects intensely but take the control and safety of the vehicle to a new level. Plus, the system offers a great chance of exploring the entire vehicle's mechanical platform, giving its best performance in extreme situations by facilitating the driving experience.

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.

The flywheel-clutch unit consists of a triple-disc clutch, an electronically controlled differential and a racing-style three-way coupling system. The complete transmission system is 35% lighter than a dual-clutch transmission unit. This transversal structure not only helps save overall weight; it also allows polar inertia to drastically limit oversteering, typically dangerous in mid-engine cars.

"Horacio always sets fascinating challenges. Every time we work together, we find ourselves facing new horizons to push back. These are extremely useful stimuli for us as they allow us to experiment and develop new ideas with an extraordinary partner. Pirelli's DNA is founded on its innovation and its drive to surpass itself and achieve technological excellence in every product. In fact, all Pagani projects bring something new." - Marco Tronchetti Provera, Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Pirelli.

The Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tyres, tailor-made for the Roadster BC, are the result of the close working relationship, partnership and passion that Pirelli and Pagani have shared for the last decade. Created in the Modular Integrated Robotized System, or "MIRS", the Pirelli high-performance tyre department, the aim of the project was to create a tyre that would combine high performance with the challenging specifications that Horacio Pagani and his Atelier's latest creation had set: to transmit, above all, a sensation of total safety and control even for the least expert driver, regardless of weather and driving dynamics.

"In 10 years of working together with Pirelli, one of the goals we set ourselves was increasing what drivers felt when they held the steering wheel. They had to feel as if their hands were resting on the road. And thanks to the skill and knowhow of the Pirelli technicians this tyre is now so communicative you can actually feel when you are reaching its grip limit. Let's not forget, in fact, that on a bend with almost 2 g of lateral force everything happens extremely quickly." - Horacio Pagani, Founder & Chief Designer at Pagani Automobili.

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. The PZero Trofeo R is not only synonymous with superior performance, but it is also designed to have less rolling resistance which fosters driveability and comfort.

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 Roadster BC's character and elegance.

"Our cooperation with Horacio sets another milestone with the introduction of the Pagani Roadster BC. We are proud to equip this new model with a state-of-the-art braking system, developed to provide not only the best performances in terms of technology and safety but also with the specific aim of integrating with the design of this masterpiece." - Matteo Tiraboschi, Brembo's Executive Deputy Chairman.

The relationship between Brembo and Pagani has always been a story of mutual understanding focused on the development of safety, technology, performance and lightweight design. 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.
