An reader caught the future Pagani C9, the replacement for the current Zonda, on a German street. This time the future supercar revealed its Mercedes SLS AMG-inspired gullwing doors which will replace Zonda’s conventional doors. The C9 was being followed by a Mercedes full of test equipment. The official debut will be made in September at the Paris Motor Show with sales beginning in 2011. The supercar will be priced in the $1,250,000 area.

The next C9, described by Pagani CEO as "a completely new car from concept, weight distribution, materials and dynamics" will be powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine with two turbochargers that will deliver around 700 hp and 1000 NM of torque. This will sprint the car from from 0 to 62mph in less than three seconds and on to a top speed of more than 220mph.

The supercar will come with 3770 new parts, a carbon-titanium chassis, specially developed Pirelli tires, and Bosch electronics.

Does it fly? Just kidding. It’s not really shocking that it has wing doors, most sports car do.

I’ve liked Wings styling in the past, but i’m not exactly sold on this one just yet. Something about the front bumper just doesn’t sit right with me...yet.
