    Italian specialty marque Pagani has issued a brief statement regarding engine sourcing on its upcoming C9 supercar.

    In order to quell (or instigate) speculation about the AMG-sourced engine for the C9 the company said this:

    "Due to recent articles posted in the press about the future Pagani C9, Pagani Automobili and Mercedes-AMG GmbH would like to make the following statement.

    The engine of the Pagani C9 is 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 derived from the engine AMG is currently developing for the Pagani C9.

    The cars are very different in their character and conception and the engine will reflect this in its technical characteristics and behavior.

    The engine in the Pagani C9 has been developed specifically for that application by Mercedes-AMG GmbH."

    Now, all that really says is that the engine will come from AMG but won't be the V12 from the SL65 Black Series nor any variant or derivate of it.

    We've previously reported that the Pagani C9 would come with a bespoke 6.0 liter V12 AMG engine with around 700 PS (515 kW) and 1000 Nm of torque. And that is likely close to what the end result will be.

    I'm liking this. I hope that this car will be able to get over 1000 bhp, it would be so cool if it could.

    It's a spy pic, the car's in disguise.

    If they tried to reveal the car, then the competition would pick up and try to outdo them. They haven't finished the car yet anyway, which is why the camouflage is on.
