Pagani Zonda F - 7’27" in Nurburgring
Pagani Zonda F Clubsport has become the fastest car in Nurburgring: with a time of 7:27:82 the Zonda F breaks the old record held by Carrera GT.
4 August 1957: with a delay of 45 seconds and 10 laps to go, Juan Manuel Fangio driving a 250 Maserati F during the G.P. of Germany on the circuit of Nurburgring has re-written the history: he broke the world record on the last laps and won the first place.
For Fangio it was the race of his life and it is still rated by many as the single greatest drive in motorsport history. The Pagani Zonda F Clubsport carries the spirit of Fangio and it was a natural choice to celebrate the champion at the Nordschleife. At 7:28pm, with 10 C on the diabolical circuit of 20,6 km and 73 corners, the Zonda F crossed the finish line posting a time of 7:27:82, setting a new record for production supercars.
The Zonda F comes with shock absorbers fully adjustable. It was easy for the driver Marc Basseng to find the right setup, in the same way it is done with every Pagani customer. At the Nurburgring Nordschleife aerodynamics come to shine.
In combination with Pirellis the Zonda’s efficient downforce package permitted to achieve average lateral G forces of 1,5 G which is impressive for a street car. Fangio wins with Pirelli and Zonda F uses Pirelli Pzero, signing in this way the start of the official collaboration between Pirelli and Pagani Automobili.
