Pagani has come a long way in a decade, from a real pretender to mixing it with the big boys. The Zonda has been an complete success (even if money has been a bit tight from time to time!) and is an incredible car to drive, and to be seen driving, whether you’re in an early Zonda S or the latest Zonda F Convertible.
With the Zonda about to bite the dust for an all new model in 2010/2011, Zonda has officially revealed the Zonda’s swansong – the track-only Zonda R.
Looking like a super-version of the Zonda F (although with only 10% of the same components) the 7.3 litre AMG engined track car produces a huge 750 bhp, with a 0-60 of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 250mph.
A complete new carbon fibre monocoque, carbon fibre intakes, a 6-speed sequential ‘box and an F1-style exhaust make this the meanest Zonda to hit the road (or the track, in this case).
Just 10 Zonda R are being made, each with a whopping €1.4 million price tag. But despite the price tag you’ll never be able to drive this on the road as it’s a pure track car, designed to be the quickest a Zonda can be.
Still, if you can afford the Zonda R you can probably afford a race track, or even your own country!
