This 14-year-old Pagani Zonda may be officially discontinued, but it’s a supercar that’s still worth seeing and hearing. At least for those of us who can’t drive one. And it’s true Pagani, much like Bugatti did with the Veyron, built way too many special-edition models to keep track of. But there’s at least one Pagani iteration that stands out from the crowd. We’re talking about the Zonda Tricolore, a three-unit run built to honor the Frecce Tricolori, Italy’s aerobatic demonstration team.

The Tricolore was sold in a bare carbon skin with a blue lacquer covering most of its body with red, white, and green stripes adorning its nose. A unique set of LED daytime running lights and an exclusive wing mounted behind the cockpit further set it apart from other Zondas. The Tricolore is also fitted with an AMG-sourced, 7.3-liter V-12, the largest engine ever to find its way into the Zonda. The mill is good for 670 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of twist that enables it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a neck-breaking 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 220 mph.

Granted, the Tricolore is not only a fast machine, but a noisy one too. If you didn’t already know that, we have the right video for you. It comes from Italian supercar spotter Marchettino and features nearly three minutes of Zonda Tricolore goodness. Hit the play button and pump up the volume.
