Spy shots have emerged of the latest version of the Pagani Huayra which owner Horacio Pagani confirmed will be a 'hardcore' derivative.

BERLIN, Germany - Supercar-maker Pagani has confirmed that a hard-core variant of the Pagani Huayra will be unveiled before the Geneva auto show scheduled for March 2016. This follows recent confirmation that an Huayra Roadster will also be introduced soon.

The firm’s founder, Horacio Pagani, revealed to media at the 2015 Geneva auto show that the car would act as a gift to the marque’s fans around the world. When asked to elaborate, Horacio said: " It’s going to be a hard-core version of the Huayra coupe."

The Argentine owner revealed that only 20 would be built and they would first be offered exclusively to existing Huayra owners.

The cars will be more road-focused than the track-orientated Huayra R.

When discussing the possibility of an Huayra R, Horacio said: “I can think about a car like that but it’s not in the plan at the moment. Let me finish the upcoming project first [Huayra Roadster] then think about another one!”

Horacio did not divulge engine date for the hard-core version but the current Huayra coupe uses a six-litre, AMG-sourced, V12 capable of  520kW/1000Nm.
