Bad news for David Heinemeier Hansson who has just received a one-of-a-kind Pagani Zonda HH that he can only enjoy during vacations in Italy. Pagani has just announced that their new generation supercar that will be replacing the Zonda, the C9, will be homologated for the US market. The company has announced that the new twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 motor and automated manual gearbox will meet 2013 California emissions regulations, and will be Euro 5-compliant.

This is the first time US customers will be allowed to enjoy a Pagani model. Until now the Zonda was never made available in the US because it did not meet the country’s EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and DOT (Department of Transportation) regulations.

Horacio Pagani also confirmed that the future C9 will be powered by an AMG sourced 6.0-liter V12 engine that will develop a total of 690bhp and 737lb-ft of torque. Also, the C9 will be a completely new product in terms of design, weight, distribution, materials and dynamics, and revealed that it will feature 3770 new parts.

Great car and scary, I think. I’m surprised I haven’t heard of anyone wrecking one of these things or being killed in one.

The Zonda R is on top, the Zonda F is on the bottom. Quite a striking difference between the two in my eyes.

The Pagani Zonda is one of my top 5 favorite cars. Mr. Pagani’s story is almost better than the amazing car he created. Living in the U.S. I do not expect to ever see one in the flesh, but I can dream it could happen.

Needs new design. The Zonda look is getting terribly old. You’d think for what Pagani’s charging, the car could afford good looks.

Not to me. Needs new design. The Zonda look is getting terribly old. You’d think for what Pagani’s charging, the car could afford good looks.
