Taking its name from the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari racetrack in Imola, Italy, just outside of Bologna, Pagani’s new hypercar comes with a hefty price tag of $5.4 million USD — and that’s before tax. During its research, testing, and validation stage, the machine spent roughly 3,728 miles on the legendary track, claimed proudly by the company as its most rigorous tuning process for any of its vehicles. As a rear wheel drive, the Imola sports a massive 5,980-cc twin-turbo V12 sourced from Mercedes-AMG, capable of pushing out an incredible 827 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.
On the outside, the track-focused racer looks aggressive, but its elegance is often interrupted by various deflectors and inlets on the body to increase aerodynamic function. As the company’s founder and chief designer Horacio Pagani said himself, “We can’t say that it’s an elegant car. We wanted an efficient vehicle,” and efficiency is what they achieved. Reworking the Carbo-Titanium HP62 G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62 materials used for the construction of its monocoque body, and paired with a lightweight paint known as Acquarello Light, the brand managed to shave off a significant amount of weight, keeping the Imola at just 2,747 pounds, more than 200 pounds lighter than its Huayra coupe.
Unfortunately for those interested, only five of these racers will be made, and all have already been purchased. Nonetheless, you can take a closer look at the engineering marvel in the video above.
