In response to the recently growing speculations regarding the engine of the upcoming supersports addition C9 by the Italian auto-maker Pagani, the brand has officially announced that the unit, which will be fitted in the ride is definitely not a derivative of the AMG V12 engine developed for the SL65 Black Series, nor is the AMG V12 engine in the SL65 Black Series.

Yes, the powerplant is developed by AMG, the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz, but is engineered specifically for the Pagani C9, due to its highly different conception, technical characteristics and behavior.

The engine is expected to boast a 6.0-liters displacement and to produce roughly 700 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.
