The engine is a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12. The engine block is sourced from Mercedes-Benz and is shared with the SL65 Black Series. But Mercedes tuner AMG developed new heads, turbos, pistons and exhaust manifolds for Pagani. There will be two levels of tuning--a base 700-hp version with 664 lb-ft of torque and a Sport tune with 730 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed gearbox with paddle shifters. The gearbox is built by racing specialist Xtrac. The engine is mounted behind the seats, driving the rear wheels.
