This one, you’ll no doubt remember, was supposed to make its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August last year but the Italian supercar didn’t show up. How we cried. But then, a lucky few were treated to a closed doors private event at the factory in San Cesario Sul Panaro, Modena. No, we didn’t get the invite either. We’ve still not seen anything about this one – until now; Pagani has revealed two teaser images of the Roadster.

The wait to see it up close and personal will finally be over when all is revealed at the Geneva motor show on March 7 but until then, Pagani has got us all hot and bothered thanks to these latest snaps. The Roadster, which is expected to have a brand new rear end and a removable hardtop (like the Zonda) which will be constructed from carbon fibre and could weigh around the same as its fixed roof counterpart at 1,350kg seems to feature revised headlights and taillights, a pair of buttresses and new side skirts. Just 100 are planned for production and each will be powered by a biturbo 6.0-litre V12 from Mercedes-AMG producing 730 horsepower and 1,000Nm of torque. It should be able to hit 100kph from rest in just 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 370kph, just like the coupe.

 More details of the newbie will no doubt come our way as we get closer to its full debut and as ever, we’ll bring you more when we know more.
