Pagani Unleashes Its Most Powerful V12 Ever With The Track-Bred 827HP Imola

In early 2011 Pagani introduced the world to its current flagship mid-engine machine with the Huayra. The successor to the Zonda, the Huayra set a new benchmark in hypercar performance, promoting Top Gear Magazine to it “Hypercar Of The Year.” And as undeniably impressive as the Huayra is, the elite auto outfit has now taken it one step further with the new Imola hypercar.

Named after the iconic — and extremely technical — 17-turn race track, the Imola features an even-more massaged version of the Huayra’s AMG-sourced 6.0L 60-degree V12, now putting down 827hp and 811ft-lbs of torque. Thanks to a lightweight carbo-titanium monocoque chassis and more than 750 forged or CNC-machined components, the Imola weighs in at just 2,637 (dry). The thing also benefits Pagani’s new Acquarello Light painting system which is said to add another 11lbs of lightness. Furthering the Imola’s track-focused nature are Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, a race exhaust system from Arrow, and a seven-speed transmission with an electromechanical differential. Much of the bodywork design has been carried over, albeit the Imola also gets a roof-mounted ram-air scoop and a massive (adaptive) rear wing. Priced at £5M ($5.42M American) and limited to just 5 units worldwide, every Pagani Imola specimen has already been spoken for.
