The teaser train for the Pagani Huayra Roadster continues to chug along, with the latest image released by the Italian carmaker giving us a good look at a camouflaged prototype’s rear.

After a few minor edits, we can clearly see some of the alterations Pagani had to perform to create the open-top Huayra. The area behind the cockpit has a more pronounced engine bay, which meet up with the upright rear window. Also visible here is the car’s removable roof and new taillights.

“From the beginning we set ourselves some pretty ambitious targets. The first, from a technical point of view, was to make a roadster that would be lighter than the coupe, which was already the lightest hypercar on sale at the time,” says Horacio Pagani. “We hope that this six-year effort can get to touch you, rationally and emotionally,” he adds in a separate post.

The hardtop Huayra weighs just 1,350 kg, and with Pagani’s claim that the roadster version will be even lighter, could indicate that the Huayra is stiff enough that it doesn’t require additional strengthening to compensate the lack of a fixed roof.

The Pagani boss has also revealed that technology from the Huayra BC will be incorporated into the roadster. Based on the lack of outlandish aero mods on the car’s bodywork (seen here), a bump in power from the AMG-sourced 6.0 litre V12 bi-turbo engine is most likely. On the Huayra BC, the mill produces 750 hp and about 1,000 Nm of torque.
