Pagani’s pursuit of weight loss is of the anorexic variety, with the new Roadster having a dry weight of 1,280 kilograms (2,816 pounds), or about 176 pounds less than a Huayra coupe weighs under the same conditions. Bypassing the need for heavy reinforcements needed on other cars that lose roofs is a new state of the art composite
material that makes up the chassis. Using a blend of Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax, the boutique Italian supercar company developed a new material that happens to be more advanced than what Formula One uses. As a result, a 52% increase in stiffness was achieved without adding a single pound.
