For over three decades, Pagani has been steadfast in its mission to perfect the art of hypercar design, meticulously engineering and integrating the most advanced materials of our time. 


Pagani continues its legacy with the latest addition to its lineup: The 2024 Imola Roadster. While it may spark differing opinions on its aesthetic appeal, one can't overlook its exhilarating performance and unbridled design. This hypercar follows the legacy of the Huayra R, setting itself apart as the “best-performing open-top” the marque has ever created.





A Symphony of Strength and Style 


Born on the iconic tracks of Imola in Bologna, Italy, the Imola Roadster draws inspiration from its predecessors, the Huayra Roadster BC and the Huayra R. It boasts an advanced aerodynamic design and a heart-stopping 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine crafted by AMG specifically for Pagani.


Delivering a formidable 850 horsepower and 811 lb/ft of torque, the engine is encased in a featherlight frame weighing just 1,260 kg. It's equipped with a seven-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox and a six-pipe titanium exhaust system. This configuration not only produces an astonishing auditory experience but propels the vehicle to a breathtaking top speed of over 217 mph.


Aerodynamic Focus and Design


Designed for superior aerodynamic efficiency rather than sheer speed, the Roadster achieves an impressive 1,323 lbs of downforce at 174 mph. The design features enhanced front air intakes, dual warm air outlets, and wheel arch openings for enhanced cooling efficiency and aerodynamics. A distinctive roof scoop aids the V12 engine, and a central fin contributes to stability.

Craftsmanship in Every Curve


Advanced composite materials are a hallmark of Pagani's innovation, and the Imola Roadster continues to uphold this tradition. Its chassis, made of Carbo-Titanium HP62-G2 and Carbo-Triax HP62, provides unmatched rigidity and safety, creating a protective cocoon for the driver. Even the vehicle's paint, the Acquarello Light system, is a marvel of engineering, offering the dual benefits of reduced weight and lustrous color depth. 


The interior encapsulates us for a journey through the rich heritage of motorsports and grand touring, with an eye towards what lies ahead in their evolution. Each intricacy in the interior reveals the meticulous craftsmanship of Pagani's artisans, capturing every subtle nuance down to the finest detail. Before even starting the engine, the Imola Roadster is designed to enchant its occupants – from the sophisticated carbo-wood to the intricately embossed leather and the components that highlight the beauty of its mechanical essence.


Refined Handling


Handling the Roadster is reimagined with its state-of-the-art suspension system. The combination of an independent double wishbone, helical springs, and electronically controlled shock absorbers, synchronized with active aerodynamics, results in a drive that is both exhilarating and precise.


The Imola Roadster is fitted with special forged wheels and Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, ensuring peak performance across all driving conditions while delivering superior comfort on-board.





While the 2024 Pagani Imola Roadster might set you back around $5 million, production will be scarce (per usual), with only 8 examples to be built and homologated for road use around the world.
