The new Pagani limited-run hypercar will cost about $5.4 million, and promises to be one of the most powerful cars on the market. Pagani is an Italian manufacturer of sports cars and carbon fiber components. The company was founded in 1992 by the Argentinian Horacio Pagani and is based in San Cesario sul Panaro, near Modena, Italy.
Their new hypercar offering, the Imola is packed with a Mercedes-AMG V-12 engine and was essentially designed for the racetrack. The 6.0-liter engine gives the car 827 horsepower, which far surpasses the company’s previous offering, the 2015 Huayra. The new Imola is actually based on the Huayra, and is basically a newer iteration of a very similar design.
The new car has a seven-speed automated manual gearbox, sticky Pirelli Trofeo R tires, and an active aerodynamics system that automatically adjusts the car’s four mobile winglets to current driving conditions, according to Automobile Magazine.
Pagani says that the dry weight of the Imola is 2,747 pounds, which is very close to the Subaru BRZ’s curb weight.
In a press release published by the Robb Report, Pagani founder Horacio Pagani explained the look of the vehicle, saying that, “We can’t say that it’s an elegant car. We wanted an efficient vehicle, and just as you’d expect if you were looking at an F1 single-seater, this led us to design a car with additional aerodynamic features. So, although on the one hand, these details may detract from the lines and overall aesthetics of the vehicle, on the other, they also allow us to improve lap time, ease of driving and especially safety.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem possible for you to get your hands on this vehicle, even if you are rich, because Pagani says that there are only five Imolas planned for production in the entire world, and they have already been claimed by unnamed individuals.
Pagani is responsible for building numerous other rare and powerful vehicles, including the Zonda models, and numerous variations of the Huayra.
