Pagani unveiled an unconditional Huayra nicknamed Dragon in 2019, which was commissioned by the Russian tuning company TopCar Design.
It turns out that the car was not unique, but the first of five examples of a new variant called Huayra Imola. The name comes from the Autódromo Internazionale Enzo and Dino Ferrari, commonly known as Imola (due to its proximity to the Italian city of Imola), and where most of the development of the new Pagani took place.
Like the Ferrari XX program, the Huayra Imola is a mobile test bench for upcoming technologies, some of which may appear in the successor of the Huayra. Customers also participated in the development of the Huayra Imola, a strategy that also comes from Ferrari’s XX program.
The 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 is coupled to a 7-speed manual transmission that is now designed for 827 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. And the weight of the car was reduced, with the dry number reaching 2,747 pounds. Pagani’s engineers were so meticulous that they even developed a new paint job that only helped lose 11 pounds.
There is a revised front clip under the bodywork changes. The inverted V, typically found on the Huayra, is missing in favor of a one-piece design. The hood also has a new scoop on the V-folds. The side shows more aggressive air intakes and side skirts. The rear has a significantly different spoiler.
The most important thing in Huayra Imola’s last is the suspension. Here the engineers revised the geometry to make the car more stable when accelerating and braking hard. They also installed active shock absorbers and a front lift system.
Other updates include an optimized Brembo brake package and customized Pirelli Trofeo R wheels.
Only five copies of the Pagani Huayra Imola will be built, each with a price of 5 million euros (approximately 5.4 million US dollars). It was completely sold out.
