Youtube user Shmee150 managed to catch another great video, this time if a Pagani Huayra along with a Zonda S on the race track.
The two cars were caught at the Goodwood Motor Circuit for a filming session and along with the short racing session, the video also shows them revving their V-12 powerplants, plus a number of flybys down the main straight.
As a reminder, the Huayra is powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and 730 pound-feet. This output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 220 mph. On the other hand, Zonda S is a little bit less powerful with an output of just 540 horsepower. Even so, it still sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
Check out the video to see which of the two models sounds the best!
These days, Italian automaker Pagani has become a household name in supercar lore. It’s one of the most recognizable supercar brands in the world, thanks in large part to the success generated by the now-iconic Zonda .
But that wasn’t always the case, especially during the turn of the century when the Zonda was just getting started in turning heads.
Fast forward to this year and it looks like Pagani is going to finally send the Zonda off into retirement. So, it’s only appropriate that we pay homage to the supercar that started it all, the prototype model that has come to be known as the Zonda "Nonno".
Serial car spotter, Shmee150, managed to take a close look at the prototype test mule Zonda, nicknamed "Nonno" (that means ’grandfather’ in Italian) because of its age (it was one of the first prototye Zondas ever created) and wear and tear (it’s logged an incredible 680,000 miles, which is about 1.1 million kilometers)
Talk about getting your investment’s worth on one supercar.
Over the years, the Zonda Nonno has evolved, depending on what specifications Pagani was using at that time. In its current state, the supercar mule carries a 7.3-liter V-12 engine that packs 760 horsepower and specified to the details of the Zonda 760.
But with the Zonda’s retirement drawing closer and closer, it looks like the Zonda Nonno will finally get the rest it so richly deserves.

Unfortunately, Pagani only revealed a limited set of images of its new supercar, but YouTube user Shmee150 managed to catch the supercar on video. He was lucky enough to be wondering around the Pagani factory in San Cesario sul Panaro, Italy as a Zonda Revolucion was just rolling off of the production line.
The new Zonda Revolucion is powered by an improved version of Mercedes AMG ’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine. The engine delivers a total of 800 horsepower and peak torque of 538 pound-feet. The engine delivers power through a six-speed automated manual gearbox that changes gears in 20 milliseconds.
If you want to own this supercar you’ll have to prepare a total of $2.8 million. The problem is that four of the five units to be built are already sold, so it might be a little bit difficult to buy one.
Not many of us will have the chance to test the new Zonda Revolucion revealed by Pagani the other day. Then again, it is also true that not many of us will actually have the chance to drive any of the Pagani models.
So, all we can do is enjoy those cool videos that feature models like the Zonda F . For example, this video (above) offers you the chance to hear the incredible sound developed by a Zonda F fitted with Cinque spec aero upgrades and the titanium exhaust.
Launched in 2005, Zonda F is powered by the usual 7.3-liter V-12 engine found in all Zonda models. The engine delivers a total of 620 horsepower - 650 in the Clubsport version - and can sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, then top out at a speed of 214 mph.
Pagani is already selling the Huayra supercar , which is enjoying great success, but the company decided to take a look back in the past and developed the Zonda Revolucion, or, as Pagani describes it "the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and art applied to a track car."
When compared to a standard Zonda , the new version features an improved aerodynamic package, a new rear wing with a Drag Reduction System and, of course, some extra power under the hood. All these changes make it ready to take on any circuit in the world.
The new Zonda Revolucion was unveiled at the 2013 Vanishing Point - the international Pagani gathering - and will be priced at €2.2 million plus taxes (about $2.8 million). It will be limited to only five units, four of which were sold during the private presentation.

The Drive channel has become one of the most popular auto-themed channels on YouTube. Last season, it ran a web series that went inside the heart of Koenigsegg.
Now, Drive and host Chris Harris are back and it’s teasing a new short film featuring another one of our favorite exotic manufacturers: Pagani .
In anticipation of the Zonda tribute film being released next week, Harris has unveiled a little teaser video featuring the two crown jewels of Pagani’ line-up, the Zonda S and the Huayra .
Just thinking about the film is already getting our hearts pumping. The Zonda and the Huayra are two of the finest supercars to have run the streets of the world in recent years. Any chance we have of getting to know more about these two exotics, as well as the people behind the creation of it, is something worth paying close attention to.
And if Drive’s Inside Koenigsegg web series is any indication, we’re going to get a real treat with this film.

In the world of supercars, you have many different players. Ferrari is the technological wonder child, while Lamborghini is that school bully that developed a bit of common sense with age.Aston Martin is the sophisticated gentlemen spy that can charm any living thing with a single word. Then, you come to Pagani, the new boy. These cars don’t feature any sophistication or old world charm. Yet, their radical designs and outrageous performance have placed them in the top tier of the supercar tree and now, we have a new version, the C9 .
In the world of follow-ups, this one is massive. Sort of like the Godfather II following the Godfather. The Zonda was the car that made Pagani into the company you see today. Automotive journalists loved it and the base version spawned many different special editions and one-offs like the Zonda F and Cinque . It was like nothing ever seen before. The Zonda’s development was evolutionary, but the C9 that will replace it will be revolutionary.
UPDATE 03/15/2013: Pagani has unveiled a new promo video for its Huayra supercar. Called simply "God of Wind" the new video is just an attempt to bring the supercar back to our attention. Enjoy!
Hit the jump for more details on the Pagani Huayra.
With a price tag well over $1 million, the Pagani Zonda is a car that’s certainly out of most peoples’ financial wheelhouse. But what if we told you that for only $2, you can have your very own Zonda? Even better: for $5, you can have three Zondas!
Before you start breaking your piggy banks, understand that you’re obviously not getting actual Zonda supercars. What you’re getting are build-your-own paper cutouts that you can transform into actual small-scale replicas of the Zonda.
As you can see in the instructional video above, the man behind the product, Taras Lesko, shows us exactly how you can build a Pagani Zonda from the comfortable confines of your desk. It’s certainly a fascinating hobby that might be worth picking up on, especially if you’re a fan of the mighty Italian supercar.
Big props to Lesko and the guys over at Visual Splcer for this item. We’re actually in the process of picking out what to buy as we speak, and if we do say so ourselves, so should you guys.
We are not very sure how many of you remember the unique Zonda PS announced back in 2009, but for those of you that do, Pagani has now unveiled a new version of the PS edition. The model announced back in 2009 was spotted a few times while it was heading to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but it was stored and there was no chance to see it again.
However, a new version of the Zonda PS has been caught for the first time. As you can see, the new PS edition has dropped the previous white and black combination and looks a little bit more stylish, thanks to its new blue color.
The Zonda PS also features a gigantic spoiler and a roof scoop, just like the ones we have seen in the Zonda R.
More details on the new Pagani Zonda PS will be unveiled in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
Not a month goes by without Turn 10 Studios releasing a car pack for its avid video game racers. For January, the developer of the Forza Motorsports franchise will be releasing the newest car pack for its latest video game offering: Forza Horizon.
Dubbed the “Recaro Car Pack,” the new downloadable content will include the usual smorgasbord of vehicles, highlighted by the 2012 Lexus LF-A Nürburgring Edition . In addition to the gnarly Japanese supercar, the Recaro Car Pack will also include the 2012 Lotus Exige S , the 2012 Cadillac Escalade , the 2005 Mercedes SLR, the 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, and, oddly enough, the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500.
The Recaro Car Pack will go live and be up for download on January 1, 2013. As is always the case, the car pack can be had for a reasonable amount of just 400 MS Points. But if you’re a Forza Horizon Season Pass holder, you get the pack for free and on top of that, get free dibs on a 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.
