Pagani Imola Roadster is the Company’s Quickest Open-Top Yet

Pagani Imola is one heck of a Roadster

  • 838 horsepower, and even better than the Imola Coupe

  • Road-legal hypercar, only eight planned


Three years ago, Pagani launched the ultra-fast and ultra-limited Imola Coupe. Today the automaker has revealed the convertible version, but the Imola Roadster is not based on its closed-cabin counterpartk.

The Pagani Huayra Imola was the most powerful car the company had ever built when it was revealed. Its 6.0L twin-turbo V12 made 827 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque, and only five were made.

Instead of slashing the roof off of that car, Pagani took the Huayra Roadster BC and combined it with the aero package of the Huayra R track car. The result, Pagani says, is a “much more advanced and complex” car.

The Pagani Imola Roadster makes even more power than the original Imola, with 838 hp from its V12 engine. The power is sent to the rear tires through a seven-speed sequential box built by Xtrac for Pagani. The engine’s fury is expelled through a six-pipe titanium exhaust that wears a special ceramic coating to help cut weight and improve heat dissipation.

Pagani builds the chassis from two types of its Carbo Titanium composite, which it says is firmer than ever. That makes the car safer, and better handling. The Roadster weighs just 1,260 kg. Even the car’s paint contributes to the efforts, with Pagani claiming the colour sheds five kilos.

The Imola roadster has four active aero flaps that help offset pitch and roll. It also comes with an active suspension system that can adjust in fractions of a second to reduce dive, squat, and roll.

A new scoop above the driver helps add stability and feed the big V12. The taillights are also new, with air vents to extract air from the rear arches to cool the brakes and simultaneously improve downforce.

The car will be road-legal, and it includes new Pirelli tires designed to work on wet pavement as well as deliver extended performance on a dry track.

Pagani is building just eight, and if you need to ask the pricing they’re not going to tell you. Expect to see them at the fanciest shows, starting sometime next year.
