The Pagani Imola costs $5.4 million and there are only 5 in the world

There’s rare, then there’s the Pagani Imola.

Unveiled in 2020, the ultra-exclusive hypercar is named after the historic Italian circuit on which it was modeled and fine-tuned.

One five production units were built, plus a prototype for Horacio Pagani.

And to be expected, each sold immediately despite having a price tag of $5.4 million before taxes.

But for that money, you get a heck of a lot.

For starters, the Pagani Imola was fine-tuned over the course of 16,000 kilometers (10,000 miles), which the Italian hypercar manufacturer says is “the severest on-track validation test ever applied to a Pagani car”.

To put that into perspective, that’s the equivalent to about three times the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Not only that, but it comes with an uprated version of the standard Huayra’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter Mercedes V12.

That lump, paired to a seven-speed sequential gearbox from Xtrac, produces 827 bhp and 811 lb-ft of torque – 74 bhp more than the track-focused Huayra BC.

Pagani never released precise performance details, however, it’s believed the Imola has a 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) time of less than 3 seconds and a top speed around 386 km/h (240 mph).

The limited-run hypercar weighs just 1,246 kg, thanks to the use of carbon fiber and titanium in the construction of its central monocoque.

What’s more, Pagani claims its Acquarello Light painting system saves 5 kg over the weight of a conventionally painted car, too.

Looks wise, it’s easy to see the Imola’s resemblance to the Huayra.

Like the Huayra, the Pagani Imola also has a quad-exit exhaust, elliptical rear grille and a distinctive, Formula-1 hood.

However, the model’s track potential is made clear by a roof-mounted air scoop, a large rear wing and an aerodynamics-enhancing diffuser set-up.

It may not be the most elegant of cars (Horacio Pagani’s words, not ours), but we bet it’s an absolute monster on the track.

If you want a work of art on wheels, the $7.4 million Pagani Codalunga is the one to go for.
