The Pagani Zonda R ’s Nurburgring lap time record caught a lot of people off-guard not because the supercar was incapable of scorching lap times, but more because it did it with relative ease, surpassing – okay, it was more like obliterating – the previous record held by Ferrari’s crown jewel, the 599XX .
Some sides have even gone as far as to question the supposed record-breaking performance of the Zonda R because it’s lap time of 6:47 around the fabled Nurburgring was 11 seconds faster – an absolute eternity in flying lap times – than the 6:58 seconds set by the 599XX .
Turns out, Pagani has a little something we call visual evidence to back up their claims.
As you can very well see from this timed in-car video, the Pagani Zonda R blasts through the circuit in record-breaking fashion, giving little doubt on the new record’s validity.
Let’s see somebody else top that now.
