Pagani, the renowned Italian automaker, has once again mesmerized car enthusiasts with the grand reveal of its latest creation, the Imola Roadster. This hypercar, an evolution of the Imola coupe paying homage to the famed Italian racetrack, is a masterpiece limited to a mere eight units.
Unveiled as a show-stopper, the Imola Roadster seamlessly blends advanced technology, open-air exhilaration, and exceptional track performance. Its beating heart is a potent 6.0-litre V12 engine, a descendant of Mercedes-AMG, delivering a staggering 838 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque – a power quotient surpassing its inspirational predecessors. With a top speed of 217 mph, this powerhouse is paired with a specially tuned 7-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox, meticulously crafted by Pagani
To accommodate the increased potency, the body underwent a meticulous redesign to meet enhanced cooling requirements. Strategic hot air exits and widened front intakes, discreetly integrated into various body locations, serve both aesthetic and aerodynamic functions. Notably, wheel arch outlets contribute to reduced front-end pressure, enhancing stability, while redesigned taillights with vents efficiently dissipate heat from the rear wheel arches, enhancing braking efficiency and traction.
A prominent scoop above the seats, working in harmony with a rear fin, stabilizes the car at high speeds and channels air to the engine. Every contour of the Imola Roadster is purposefully crafted, generating 1,378 lbs of downforce at 174 mph. Active aero aid is provided by four intricate flaps, enhancing performance and ensuring optimal handling.
The use of cutting-edge materials, including Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 in the chassis, along with Acquarello Light paint, keeps the weight at a mere 2,777 lbs. Pagani’s dedication to innovation is evident in the inclusion of four complex flaps for active aero aid and an intelligent suspension system that minimizes roll, dip, and squat, providing racecar-like handling.
The interior of the Imola Roadster is a testament to luxury and craftsmanship, featuring highly embossed leather, carbo-wood trim, and an immersive seven-channel music system strategically positioned behind the driver’s head.
While the price tag for this limited marvel is undisclosed, Pagani’s reputation for exclusivity and craftsmanship ensures that it will be a coveted, high-value acquisition for the fortunate few. With only eight instances in existence, each Imola Roadster is destined to be a rare and treasured automotive masterpiece.
