With other exotics making waves at the Geneva Motor Show this week, Pagani is taking the time to spread the word about its two upcoming projects, including a new roadster.

According to Top Gear the company is looking first to make a hardcore version of its Huayra coupe. Calling it a special gift for the Pagani fans around the world, the company’s founder, Horacio Pagani confirmed that such a car would be detailed by the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and that only 20 models will be made.

Pagani also confirmed that a roadster version of the Huayra is on the way following the debut of the hardcore coupe. The roadster is set for a 2016 Geneva Motor Show Debut, and will make slightly more horsepower ouf it its 6.0-liter V12 engine than its coupe counterpart. Apparently the roadster will have a different chassis with different front and rear subframes and a new transmission. It’s expected to be about 100 lbs lighter too.

This car will also be limited, set for just 100 units and the founder has confidence that the car will be able to hit 200 MPH.
