Just a few days ago, we released a video courtesy of Marchettino which was claimed to capture the Pagani Zonda R Evolution, or ‘Evo’. Now that the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012 has come around however, we can officially confirm that that particular car was not the Evolution, but the car in the video above is. After looking at both, we’re glad that Marchettino got it wrong this time.

The Pagani Zonda R Evolution is basically an even more extreme version of the already-insane R, and promises to be substantially faster than the standard car, meaning a possible Nordschleife run could see the new car eclipse the regular R’s record-breaking lap of 6:47.

Taking a leaf out of the book of the Zonda 760 RS and 760 LH, the new Zonda R Evolution delivers, you guessed it, 760BHP from its modified 6.0-liter AMG-sourced V12 engine. Additional changes have been implemented throughout the suspension set up, although Pagani has yet to reveal any official details about these changes.

What we can confirm however, is that the Zonda R Evolution features a dramatically re-designed body with various new aerodynamic aids now being featured on the car. These include additional vents at the front end, including a more aggressively-styled splitter and larger winglets. Furthermore, the rear also features aerodynamic improvements with a second small wing now situated below the larger rear wing, which has also been improved.

Follow the jump to check out an awesome video of the car revving, and stay tuned for the official release of the Zonda R Evolution in the coming days.

If that is the case, it’ll definitely take the crown of the reigning most powerful vehicle in the world.

It’s a record holder at Nurburging what more if it increased its power to 760HP, improved weight distribution and some aerodynamic enhancement on its body.
