• We’ve Finally Learned Just How Extreme the Pagani Huayra Imola Really Is

It’s limited to just five cars, and it took for the second to come to life to learn more about it

Remember that cool, black and orange Pagani Huayra Imola that damn near broke social media when TopCar released a few images? Well there’s another one that’s just as extreme, a little less colorful, and – apparently – China bound. This specific model is one of the four remaining models and all the information and pictures comes from Pagani China. More importantly, though, we’ve learned more than we’ve ever known before about this ultra-rare, modified Huayra. Hint: It’s the most powerful Pagani ever built.

The Pagani Huayra Imola Is the Most Powerful Pagani Ever

When the first of five Huayra Imolas spread like a bad virus on the internet, we praised it for just how extreme it really was. However, at the time, we had no idea how powerful it was. We even speculated that the AMG-sourced V-12 could produce anywhere between 730 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque and as much as 800 horsepower and 774 pound-feet – the same power output of the Huayra BC.

As it turns out, however, the Huayra Imola is the most powerful Pagani to ever be created.

It’s AMG-sourced V-12 has been massaged to deliver 827 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, some 36 ponies and 37 pound-feet more than even the most powerful Huayra BC Roadster. To go with these extreme output figures, this Imola also features revised bodywork and even more impressive aerodynamics as well.

That massive rear wing is only the start of things, as there are also more side air intakes (presumably needed for extra air induction and cooling) and a menacing rear diffuser. Unlike the first Imola, this example is finished in more of a flat gray color. If you’re curious about cost, well the standard Huayra BC had a price tag of $2.5 million when it was launched and the BC Roadster upped that price to $3.5 million. It’s only safe to assume that the Imola runs north of the $4 million mark.
