Just When You Think Pagani Stopped Making Zondas...


Surprise!

There's a new one around the corner.

Basically a Zonda R for the road.

Seriously! It sounds like a gun went off.

I especially like how all the carbon fiber lines up so nicely.

LH = Lewis Hamilton?

I think that's a special order only. The nice thing about Pagani is that they'll offer a manual no matter what as long as you pay enough.

I'd like to see you try and get a 458 Italia with a manual.

Crazy story that dude told about the guy who came from the Middle East, test drove the 750 RS then just signed the papers and copped two of them at £3.2 million ($5,172,380.00)...

Good to see Pegani never dismissed the Zonda. The carbon fiber work is just amazing. The car even has a CD player. As cliché as this sounds; personally, I would've taken that out. The revving and exhaust note on the RS and LH sounds great. So much mileage on the RS prototype though. Over 1,000,000km, the guy says.

I think he meant its a "Zonda" prototype. Every Zonda variant was tested in the chassis since the original C12.....I guess most of the parts do share, but they can just bolt on redesigned subframe, suspension, engine...etc...

I definitely like the Zonda more than the Huayra, mostly because I prefer the N/A engine over the turboed one.

The styling is also better in my opinion.

Def one of the best sounding supercars I've ever heard. I like the new digs surrounding the engine too.

Pagani can continue making bespoke Zondas until the end of time as far as I'm concerned. It gives me hope.

It's funny to me, I roll my eyes every time I see a "new" "special edition" Veyron but I can't get enough of these bespoke Zondas. With Bugatti it just seems tacky, like they're trying too hard to be exclusive but with Pagani it works.

I also like it when Pagani straps wings to their cars to make them more racey, which is another thing that I find tacky from other supercar/hypercar manufacturers.

holy sh!t....what a car!

To think how much real estate you could get with the money that two of those cars are worth...but then I can't help but just be tempted into living out of a cardboard box in order to keep the funds for the two Zondas lol. What an impressive machine. Thanks for sharing .
