Pagani himself calls the engine the heart of the car. How could such a piece of thunder not be? AMG's engine code is M158, a number unique to a Pagani. While the base block is a borrow from the Maybach S engine, the M158 has its own dry sump, its own top end, turbos, intake, heads, and exhausts. To improve reliability, reduce weight and keep it looking beautiful, many of the hoses have been run inside the main castings. Talking of beauty, those fins on the top-mounted intercoolers are there because the same housings serve as expansion tanks for the coolant. This sort of neat integration and multi-tasking of components can be found all over the car, and it happens because one man knows every detail of it and so can pull it all together.
