Pagani Zonda

Pagani Zonda

When talking about supercars, there aren’t a lot in this world that can come close to matching the prestige of a Pagani Zonda or a Bugatti Veyron . And if you want to push the exclusivity level up a few notches, try having a Zonda Cinque and a Veyron Sang Noir join forces in one unforgettable street race.

The two cars were spotted in the streets of London where they were joined by a number of other supercars that, apparently, are all owned by a strapping number of wealthy Middle Easterners that are a looking to have a good time.

And as it turns out, their idea of ‘having a good time’ involves racing their multi-million dollar machines without a care in the world and probably knowing full well that in the unlikely event that they wreck these cars, they could just as well afford to replace them with something else in a few days.

And as far as how this supercar race between the Zonda Cinque and the Veyron Sang Noir went, well, you can check out the results by clickity-clacking on the video.

"The Artisan" is defined by the dictionary as a craftsman: a skilled worker who practices some trade or handicraft. In this case the trade is creating the most beautiful, articulately crafted automobile the industry currently has to offer. And Pagani knows all about craftmanship. The Zonda F is created entirely by the hands of the best artisans Italy has to offer, using the most remarkable and high quality materials the Earth has given us.

Pagani has brilliantly used Antonio Vivaldi as the backdrop to the purely classical nature of the video, following the Zonda F from the hands of a passionate designer to revving its 7.3 liter Mercedes-Benz engine with 650hp down the narrow streets of Italy. The video will undoubtedly send chills down the back of any car lover. Enjoy.

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.

At the end of June we reported that Pagani had smashed the Nurburgring record becoming the fastest car on the circuit with a lap time of 6:47. This is better than the 6.58 lap time Ferrari recently achieved in a 599XX.

Today, we bring you the first video of the record.

The Zonda R is powered by a V12 AMG engine that delivers 750 hp (100 more than the Zonda F) at 8000 rpm and 524 lb. ft. of torque. Although it looks like other Zondas, this only uses ten percent of the Zonda F components. New parts include a suspension forged in Avional (aluminum alloy), a new Pagani six-speed transversal sequential gearbox, and a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The Zonda R will be limited to only 10 units each priced at €1.4 million euro (about $1.85 million).

Yes, the Zonda is on its way out, but it is definitely not leaving without exiting without leaving its mark! Pagani has announced today that their Zonda R recorded a Nurburgring Nordschleife lap-time of 6:47. This is better than the 6.58 lap time Ferrari recently achieved in a 599XX . However the Zonda R is not a road legal model, so Porsche and Nissan aren’t in danger yet.

The car was driven by ’Ring specialist Marc Basseng and was equipped with bespoke P-Zero tires developed by Pirelli.

You might have never known or guessed that Italian auto manufacturer, Pagani , would be a soccer fan. Well, apparently they are and they have created a special edition Zonda S in order to prove to the entire world that the World Cup is not a joke in their eyes! And this special edition carries the flag of the England team. Subtle enough for you? Is this a war against the Germany team? Or just a way of saying that Germany has Nurburgring, but England will have the world cup? Those of you out there watching futbol, feel free to offer up any type of confirmation!

The special edition Zonda England features a big St George emblazoned across the length of the car. If that wasn’t fanaticism at it’s best then they decided to add several images of the football team’s badge and the official World Cup logo.

Now, the Pagani Zonda S is a magnificent car all on its own so the special edition will only receive the decorations needed to idolize the game. Other than that, the Zonda England will carry the same specifications of a standard Zonda S, meaning an output of 555 HP and a top speed of 197 mph. Add all of that together and you will get the greatest automotive futbol creation ever!

We don’t often get the chance to catch videos of the ultra exclusive Pagani Zonda Cinque out on the streets so when our friends over at Marchettino sent us this video of the Zonda Cinque - #2 of 5, so they say - we wasted little time in watching the video. Just remember that when you watch it, be sure to turn your speakers up and make sure that everything’s quiet around you. Similar to how people drink wine or smoke their cubans, there’s an art that comes with listening to the piercing roar of a monstrous engine and the Zonda Cinque’s V12 678 horsepower certainly qualifies as one.

Remember, make sure it’s quiet around you, dim the lights, and turn up the volume. It certainly doesn’t get any better than this.

Pagani is saying goodbye to the new generation Zonda with a new special edition. Called the Uno , the new Zonda will be limited to only one unit and was built for a well-known car enthusiast in the middle-east. The Uno will be painted in baby blue, like all the other supercars that belong to car collector, Ana Al-Thani. The engine will be tuned to deliver an impressive 700 HP.

This is the first time we have the chance to see the car in all of its glory. We know it’s not the best quality video ever, but for a unique vehicle, like the one built for this enthusiast, we felt it necessary to make an exception.

Three more videos after the jump.

Based on the Pagani Cinque , the special edition Zonda Tricolore is built from a special carbon-titanium weave left bare except for a clear blue lacquer coating. It also features a unique set of LED running lights and an exclusive red, white, and green trim. It is priced at $1.75 million, so you can understand why we take any opportunity we get to show it to you!

The video is only about a minute long, but worth every second! The closeups of the carbon-titanium weave allow you to truly appreciate the material utilized in crafting such a remarkable vehicle. As the camera zooms in on just about every angle of the car, including the unique air intakes mounted on top of the rear wings. These intakes were styled to resemble the intakes used on the jet fighters flown by the Italian demonstration team, the Frecce Tricolori. The details laid throughout it make the viewer appreciate why it is priced the way it is.

Anyone want a Zonda Cinque that retailed for about $1.5 million for only $12,000? Well, that’s probably not going to happen. We fibbed a little because there is just no way that could ever be the case, but one could get a Zonda Cinque for only $12,000 if they purchased a fiberglass Zonda kit selling on eBay right now. The kit contains a front clam shell, head lights that are molded in to the fenders and only need projectors fitted in from behind, left door, right door, engine deck lid, roof air intake scoupe, left/right side skirts, rear bumper, and left/right lower valance diffuser.

Interested? Go to eBay and place your bid, but you better hurry up, there will only be a limited number of kits made although we hope it will be more than the five that were produced of the original Zonda Cinque.
