• Unique Pagani Zonda Zozo Crashes in Tokyo

The bespoke supercar needs an expensive rhinoplasty

Supercars are fast, good looking (well, most of them at least), cool, and can be seen as a solid investment, but all come with a major downside, no matter the badge. With all that oomph available at a simple push of the gas pedal, they tend to go wild and push you off the road, especially if you’re not paying close attention or lack the necessary skills to handle it. When that happens, not only do they require expensive repairs (given they can be salvaged, that is!), but the occupants need a bit of luck to survive. Fortunately, the Zonda you see in the photo didn’t claim the life of its driver, but the owner will have to make a serious investment to get it back on the road again.

The car in question is the Pagani Zonda Zozo, a supecar commissioned by Yusaku Maezawa, the owner of the Japanese online retailer Zozotown. According to GT Spirit, the purple Zonda was smashed on December 3 somewhere in Tokyo, losing its front hood in the process. Information as to what happened specifically is scant, but things don’t look that bad and it appears that the car’s cockpit is intact. This means the occupant(s) escaped unscathed, which is the best news we can have following a car accident. The Zonda, on the other hand, will require an expensive visit to Horacio Pagani’s shop.

Although the damage isn’t very extensive, it’s heartbreaking to see any Zonda like that, especially with most models being unique. The Zozo is one of them, being designed with partially covered rear wheels, an extra set of red taillights, and a bespoke purple paint that makes it stand out just about anywhere. Fixing the car shouldn’t be an issue for Pagani, which has rebuilt previous unique models in the past (the Zonda Fantasma and Absolute come to mind), and I guess it’s safe to assume that Maewaza can afford to spend some serious cash to get it running again.

Speaking of expenses, it appears that the Zonda collided with the Maybach 62S seen in the same image. Now that’s a multi-million-dollar car crash right there.
