The Pagani Zonda R’s record-breaking run at the Nurburgring may have been a cake walk for some people considering the car broke the newly-set record by the Ferrari FXX by over 11 seconds.
But ask the people responsible behind the record-setting run and they’ll be the first to tell you that the accomplishment was reached because of hours and hours of tireless research, hard work, and dedication.
In this mini-documentary, the Italian sports car manufacturer takes us through, in detail, what happened behind the scenes in the development of the Zonda R. We may see the flash and pizazz with these record-setting runs, but there are also aspects of these cars we don’t see – research, development, and testing – that play a more important role than any of us can imagine.
In the end, after all that painstaking labor, the result certainly speaks for itself. And according to Horacio Pagani, the founder of the Italian auto brand, "The laptime of 6:47 that we have obtained with reasonable ease here at the Nürburgring is a confirmation of the skilled work behind every Pagani vehicle."
