Pagani Zonda HH goes to David Heinemeier Hansson

When Pagani unveiled the Zonda HH earlier this month, everyone wondered what the "HH" stood for. Now we have the answer. The HH just happens to stand for its owner, David Heinemeier Hansson in Chicago. Of course, now the big question is, who is David Heinemeier Hansson?

Unless you are as computer addicted as we are, you probably have never heard of the guy before a few seconds ago. This man is a 30 year-old software guru. He created the Ruby on Rails web development framework and is a partner at a software development firm called 37signals. Unfortunately for Mr. HH, he will only be able to enjoy his precious ride during his vacations in Italy since the Pagani Zonda HH cannot be imported to the USA.

As a reminder, the Zonda HH will be powered by a Mercedes-Benz AMG V12 engine that produces over 680 horsepower that’s similar to the output of Pagani’s other super machine, the Zonda Cinque . As for the materials found on this one-off machine, they include a carbon titanium tub, a ceramic-titanium exhaust, and a carbon-ceramic braking that will make the Zonda HH even lighter – somewhere in the neighborhood of 30% - than the standard Zonda.

On a side note, and speaking of guys with a good life, did anyone really think that 120-yr old Hugh Hefner commissioned a one-off super car that can only be driven in Europe?

I wouldn’t think Hugh Heffner would risk even leaving his house, much less getting on a plane and flying overseas to drive an exotic high powered sports car around a racetrack. Seems like the chance of dieing and not being able to test drive all those bunnies anymore would make even a Zonda not worth it.

Plus DHH competes in amateur stock car leagues, driving a track-ready Porsche GT3, so he’s in the "business"! Really happy him… smiley

This car is very cool!

This car is very cool!
