Pagani Huayra Imola revealed

Each example of Pagani's new Huayra will get more extreme carbonfibre bodywork wrapped around an uprated V12 base



Pagani will build four more examples of the Huayra Imola that it revealed over the weekend, with each gaining more extreme aerodynamic features to warrant the variant's motorsport moniker. The first car, produced in secret for TopCar Design founder and bespoke Zonda β€˜Unica’ owner Oleg Egorov, wears only a layer of gloss and orange accents over its carbon skin, which sports significantly larger side skirts, an enormous rear wing and similarly dominating diffuser. Look familiar? It's the machine formerly expected to be called the Dragon.

The Imola – named as such after the legendary Bologna race circuit in a nod to the car’s track-focussed alterations – receives a set of seven-spoke lightweight wheels ahead of orange brake calipers, while matching orange details have been added to the cockpit to continue the theme inside. As to how much punch is on offer from the AMG V12 behind, there are no official words on that as of yet. But the enlarged, roof-mounted intake neck backs suggestion that the motor has been boosted well beyond the 745hp in the regular Huayra.

Indeed, we know the twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre M158 is capable of 800hp, as demonstrated by the Β£3.36 million BC Roadster that was revealed in July with less significant aerodynamic modifications, which collectively unlock 500kg of downforce. With a fixed roof and those larger aero pieces, Egorov’s Imola stands in very good stead to dwarf the BC’s stats. For now, however, your guess is as good as ours – although with four more Imolas set for production, it’s probably only a matter of time before the factory numbers are out. On that note, could the Imola surpass the BC Roadster's price, too?

Looks poor for a Pagani.

each to his own, but I'd prefer it without the orange accents

Looks more like the old Adam West Batmobile with those orange bits, I noticed it on this Swiss airfield blast video - https://youtu.be/u7Ox96CNiZw?t=102

An article about a new model been released without a front 1/4 view. I guess it might be too fast for anyone to see its front...

Even worse looking than those dreadful AMR highlights. Gaudy in the extreme

I was thinking exactly the same, maybe it carries a full of spare wheels inside the cabin.

They've done a remarkable job of making that look cheap, really quite surprised.

That's also a properly ugly steering wheel, airbags can be significantly smaller than that now getmecoat

Not keen at all. Looks tacky. But I suppose the very rich like tacky?

You never really hear much of Pagani much these days. Back in the Zonda days, EVO would constantly be driving one. Now, it's as if they don't exist.

So Orange is the new indicator of a company's top speed model.
The record breaking Bugatti Chiron looks positively restrained compared to this iteration of the Pagani.
And for once, the Bugatti might be the cheaper car!

Add some Morette's to this and you're not a million miles away hehe

The Evo style vortex generators look particularly gash on the front.

The Huayra looks worse for every new winglet, chin and flap.

Loved the Zonda and every evolution of that model.

I have never warmed to the Huayra since launch. Not one new addition has changed that.

I just don’t understand the contrast. It wouldn’t even be anywhere on the list of fantasy euromillions purchases.

The car doesn’t even seem to feature in magazines much compared to the zonda.
