Prior to Pagani officially unveiling the Zonda R Evolution to the public at the ongoing Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the U.K, GHPixx managed to capture the Evo at what’s sure to be its new home in the coming months, the Nordschleife.

Shot on the June 26th, very few car aficionados would have been able to identify the car as the Zonda R Evolution, as our good friend Marchettino already falsely claimed to capture the Evo a couple of weeks ago.

Nevertheless, this is a mighty spot and in addition to the Zonda R Evo doing the rounds at the ‘Ring, a Pagani Huayra was also seen shadowing the Zonda R Evolution, suggesting that the Italian company may be planning to run both cars around ‘Green hell’ with record lap times in mind in the coming days and weeks.

Sounding just as incredible as the ‘standard’ Zonda R, the Evolution variant is said to produce 760BHP, although some sites have claimed output to be as high as 800HP from its modified 6.0-liter AMG-sourced V12 engine. Whichever it is, the Evolution is unquestionably faster than its predecessor and should eclipse the R’s record-setting Nurburgring lap time captured a couple of years ago.

They are comparing the Pagani Zonda with the fastest formula one racecar?

It’s interesting to see how the Zonda R compares to the very last and therefore, fastest Formula One car at Nordschleife.

It’s the very first public display of Zonda R Evo. It features V12 AMG engine that has a brain-damaging 800HP. I noticed that the it has new central wing.

Pagani might be the apple of the eye, but there’s no one will take the attention on lovely Gallardo of Lamborghini.

It shows that Pagani is the new apple of the eye. Keep it up.

So this is the real Pagani Zonda R Evo, it definitely looks great, and it’s good that they have finally a video showing it performing rounds. It’s really better than the standard Zonda, and I expect they come up fastest record in the Green Hell.
