Pagani has taken the wraps off the Imola Roadster – an open-top version of the most powerful hypercar based on the Huayra. Only eight examples will be homologated for road use throughout the world.
The Pagani Imola Roadster is the ultimate road-going version of the Huayra, featuring an aerodynamics package inspired by the ultimate track car, the Huayra R.
The Imola Roadster is characterized by its larger intakes and ducts at the rear that are said to improve cooling. Openings on the wheel arches help reduce pressure under the front end, while an air scoop helps the twin-turbo V12 breathe. For the first time, the air scoop and the supports for the rear wing have been integrated with the hood.
According to Pagani, the Imola Roadster generates 600 kg of downforce at 173.98 mph. The lateral acceleration is unexpected: 2.0 g on a continuous drive with peaks of 2.2 g and a longitudinal deceleration of 2.2 g.
This hypercar is based on a “Carbo-Titanium” chassis and weighs just 1260 kg. It comes with a 6-pipe exhaust system crafted from titanium and coated with ceramic.
Powering the Imola Roadster is a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 that delivers 850 hp @ 5600 rpm and 811 lb-ft of torque @ 3600-5600 rpm. It drives the rear axle via an Xtrac 7-speed sequential gearbox. Top speed is rated at 217.48 mph.
