Pagani: this time, the last Zonda

Pagani Zonda

Pagani ZondaThis time it’s actually finished. Unless Pagani we still hide a final version, we have before the final copy of the Zonda. Unique achievement, with a heart of 750 hp.

The arrival of spring Huayra not immediately sounded like the death knell of the Zonda, obviously. Anyway, this strange orange and black Zonda were previously unknown to the battalion of the multitude of special series and unique performances of Italian supercar now defunct. The Habs, and other HH 750, we must add the “7 Cinquenta.” So apparently it is called, if one believes the inscription by hand around the “Cinque” adorning its side. Mystery …

Understand that in this case? If it’s a Zonda Cinque block with 750 hp of the Zonda R is the Zonda’s most powerful registered for the road, except for the 750 unique Zonda presented in late 2010. From these images taken in the courtyard of the old site Pagani Castelfranco, this is indeed the 6 l V12 Mercedes AMG the latter, sending the monster carbon from 0 to 100 kmh in 3 s, just over 370 km / h in a point.

So there would be a copy under the Zonda Cinque, whose production was initially limited to five units as its implies, a result of this metamorphosis. A priori, the sponsor of the Zonda 750 would be a member of the al-Thani (Qatar). Can be the same that passed a few months earlier orders of the Zonda Uno, also unique.Pagani Zonda

Pagani Huayra: the United States refuse registration

Pagani Huayra

Pagani HuayraThe United States come to deny the marketing in its territory of the Pagani Huayra. The reason cited: the lack of airbag. A blow to the Italian manufacturer.

Presented last March at the Geneva Motor Show, the Pagani is a supercar Huayra ultra-exclusive 700-horsepower whose production should not exceed 22 units a year. In the projects of the Italian manufacturer, a lot of those copies (between 10 and 15) were to be sold in the United States. It was in all cases the goal of Horacio Pagani, the owner of the eponymous brand.

This will unfortunately have to change his plans because the DOT (Department of Transportation), the American service charge to endorse the new models, just refuse to approve the Huayra.

The reason? The lack of airbag, mainly, but also the lack of crash-test performed.

A big blow for Pagani hoping to take advantage of an exemption as it had been granted to some manufacturers in the past. It was not the case this time. Horacio Pagani has appealed, but the verdict is unlikely to change. To be marketed in the U.S. (unlike the Zonda, its predecessor), the Pagani Huayra will therefore have to be changed.

Problem: make crash test and install an airbag cost too much, according to the owner of the trademark. These investments would jeopardize the future of the manufacturer. However, they cannot sell the Huayra United States would have the same consequences. Pagani an impasse seems unthinkable just a few weeks. Unless the DOT is more conciliatory during the call, but we certainly.Pagani Huayra

Pagani Zonda R with functional film

Pagani Zonda R

Pagani Zonda RToday provides just about every owner of a “special” four-wheeler car wrap with a layer of foil,  but of course not really necessary. They do it purely for the show. How different is that in this case? Because what we see here is a brand-new  Pagani Zonda R . Which is also equipped with the necessary film, but it is only (temporarily) to protect the bare carbon fiber.

As the lucky new owner car has not yet accepted it is so neat that she was from Pagani Zonda R until then just have provided a protective layer. It would be a bit sour when a new scratch or damage your car in before you can do it yourself.
And as a bonus we see behind the Zonda R is also one of the test versions of the recently unveiled Huayra standing with its doors open. It’s funny to compare how different the doors of the Huayra compared to that of the Zonda R.

So the pink Pagani Zonda C12 S auctioned

Pagani Zonda C12 S

Pagani Zonda C12 SThat brings us to the Question of the Day: What would you give for a converted Zonda in the color “Pink Cadillac Elvis Presley?

At the annual car and supercar-fest in Goodwood There was also room for an auction by Bonhams. One of the trendsetters, this Zonda C12 S, the strikingly colored pastry which, in 2008 were already acquainted with. And yes, there’s a story behind this paint job.

In 2008, the C12 S Roadster Horacio Pagani’s back to work for a not unkind upgrade. The AMG V12 was so tickled now 612 horsepower, this was a different setting of the ECU and a new exhaust enough. Then the leather-covered dash and there was a carbon fiber plate to lie above the engine. The ass of the C12 S was tightened in the form of a diffuser.

All in all, it means that the homeless Zonda now in 3.6 seconds and top speed a hundred can tap has been stretched to 344 km / h. Drive you happen to 193 km / h and you have filled in the anchors for an Opel Vectra caravan / Toyota Yaris with invoegproblemen, then you’re in 4.4 seconds thanks to new remspul silently from Brembo. Look, these are changes that many petrol head not say no. Whether the majority for the color conversion from yellow to pink would go is another question.Pagani Zonda C12 S
