Red carbon-fiber Pagani Huayra BC dubbed the Kingtasma arrives in the US

Article by Christian A., on June 5, 2017

A new Pagani Huayra BC has just arrived in the United States and its delivery was taken by a rich client who goes on Instagram as “Sparky18888.” The new owner of this particular Huayra BC is definitely a fan of Pagani, as he already has a similarly named Huayra (The King) in his garage.

Sparky18888 – who described himself as an owner of various exotic cars – christened his new Pagani Huayra BC as “Kingtasma.” This nickname was purely evident on the gold crowns under each of the aero flaps located on the rear end of the Huayra BC. Its regal stature was also evidenced by the fact that this hypercar from Pagani features a large part of its body wrapped in red carbon fiber. This elegantly dynamic finish is further accentuated by red pinstripes on the side skirts and on the engine bay as well as around the cabin.

Other distinctive elements found on The King of Sparky18888 are the three colors of the Italian flag “Il Tricolore” (green, white and read) and a host of carbon fiber-clad parts. The Huayra BC badge at the rear end of Kingtasma is finished in red.

Meanwhile, the interior of this Pagani Huayra BC features dark carbon fiber, black aluminum as well as red and white leather.

As expected, Pagani creates every Huayra BC according to the wishes of its owner. This red carbon fiber Huayra BC could well reflect the tastes and preferences of its new owner, Sparky18888. The Pagani Huayra BC Kingtasma is estimated to have cost him over $3 million, considering that this hypercar boasts a starting price of around $2.5 million in the US.

The Pagani Huayra BC is considered as the most extremely loaded Huayra production car so far. Primarily designed for track performance, the Huayra BC is a continuation of its predecessors – the Pagani Zonda R and the Zonda Cinque. It is powered by Mercedes-AMG’s 6.0-liter twin turbo V12 engine that could deliver up to 789 hp of max output and 811 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This powerful engine is paired to a seven-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission), an all-new high-tech gearbox featuring a new electro-hydraulic actuation system with new carbon fiber synchronizer.

Since it weighs only 1,218 kg, the Huayra BC is around 132 kg lighter than the standard Huayra. The 'BC' in the hypercar’s name is the initials for Benny Caiola, the person who inspired Horacio Pagani while he was still starting his company. Caiola was the very first buyer of a Pagani car.

New Pagani Huayra BC is equipped with a specially calibrated Bosch ESP system that offers three modes: "Comfort", "Sport" and "Track." This new traction control system could maximize traction and optimize performance.
