To be produced in a strictly limited edition of 40 completely made-to-measure cars, the Zonda Roadster will once again cristallize PAGANI's philosophy: marry the most exotic technology - such as the never-seen-before carbon fiber/carbon textile removable roof - to the loving care of the 'artigiano' handwork, to produce 'Una Macchina con Anima'.

The Zonda Roadster, like all Pagani creations, has been designed around truly innovative technology ideas, and with a special attention to safety - a key issue in the 'Super Convertibles' segment, and a constant preoccupation of the manufacturer - as its technical specs show:
-the new carbon fiber central chassis structure reaches the highest structural rigidity level available in the segment, 18.000 Nm/mm in torsional rigidity, 9.000 Nm/mm in flexional rigidity, for a dry weight of 1280 Kg
-the roll bar, elliptical in section, is built out of carbon and chrome-molybdene alloy and is linked to the aft section of the chassis through a finely handworked Ergal element
-the full-carbon body shows a new engine hood configuration, and a new rear hood design where two NACA air vents work as air extractors
-the 7.3l Mercedes-Benz AMG engine transmits its 555HP/750Nm power through the ABS/Traction Control safety systems already used in the Zonda S
-the wheels are forged by FOMB-APP in aluminium and the 255/35/19 and 345/35/19 tires have been specially developed for the Zonda by Michelin, adding to the car's unique styling and technology.

But the Zonda Roadster is not just a list of superlative safety and perfomance specs: according to Horacio Pagani, founder and head designer of Pagani Automobili: "The new Zonda Roadster we will unveil in Geneva is a true expression of the Pagani sprit: we do not just build supercars, we build 'Una Macchina con Anima', a car with a soul ". What the public will discover is more than a beautiful piece of emotion turned into carbon fiber and aluminium: only 40 Zonda Roasters will be handbuilt, each one to the exact taste of its owner, like a perfect-fitting tailored suit. Each will be an original object of desire, each with its own story, each offering something way beyond technical perfection: a soul.

This search for the ultimate level of "personalizzazione", a defining Pagani criterion, is especially visible in the car's interior: rare leathers, hand-tailored by Pagani's own team of craftsmen, aluminium and carbon-fiber, all chosen by the car's owner, producing a symphony of sights, touch, smells and sounds that matches the driver's tastes and personality.
