A couple of years ago, it was rumoured that the Pagani Zonda will mark the end of its journey in June 2013 with the new Revolucion. But it seems like these rumours are not very accurate, because we keep seeing a new model every now and then. Case in point, this year alone, we witnessed three new one-offs by Pagani, namely the Fantasma Evo, Riviera, and Horacio’s own HP Barchetta. And apparently, Pagani is not done releasing new models yet because another one has emerged just recently.
So far, we have very few details about it but we do know that the owner is a customer of TopCar Design. If you have not heard of it, it is a Russian tuning company with headquarters in Moscow. One of the very few details we know about the new unnamed Zonda is that it will leave Pagani’s new factory in San Cesario Sul Panaro, Modena in the spring of next year.
Based on what we have heard, we are guessing that it would be an “original car” as opposed to an update of an existing car. So it would not be like a Riviera based on a 2005 Zonda F. Also, when looking at the images, it looks like Pagani’s latest creation had been inspired by the Cinque Roadster and the Tricolore.Read the entire article There is a new Pagani Zonda built for TopCar customer
Over a decade ago, Pagani took the Zonda to the Geneva Motor Show. The Zonda hypercar was then set to retire in 2013 together with the track-focused Revolucion. But here is the thing, customers still wanted to keep the AMG-powered hypercar alive even after Huayra’s launch. Pagani had to listen to what the customers asked for and decided to keep it alive so it released a number of one-offs instead.
This year’s Zonda is nothing like the past models that we have seen. Firstly, it is not going to be delivered to any customer since Horacio Pagani, the company boss himself commissioned this model - dubbed the HP Barchetta. This Zonda has a low and narrow windscreen that leads to a more unique design. Dressed in a shiny blue paint, what makes this even more special is the fact that the rear wheels are partially covered with a black mesh, which was borrowed from the Zozo special edition.
The cabin gets a cream interior accented with black carbon fiber details as well as a tartan pattern. It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, with body hugging sport seats like the Huayra BC, making it one of the most beautiful Zondas made in history.Read the entire article Zonda HP Barchetta is specially made for Horacio Pagani
It’s not everyday that we hear stories about horrible car accidents but it seems this year has brought us a lot of bad news. What’s tragic is that the cars involved are not just average cars. Among the unfortunate incidents are those that destroyed a black Maybach 62S and the Pagani Zonda ZoZo that collided in Tokyo, Japan. Read on.
Based on the photos that surfaced after the accident, the Maybach was behind the one-off Pagani Zonda. Judging from this angle, the luxury sedan isn’t badly hurt. But still, we feel bad for the owner of the Pagani. The special Zonda was made to order by Zozotown founder Yusaku Maezawa. He had it equipped with a powerful 750 hp 7.3 litre V12 AMG engine apart from the specially designed carbon fibre exterior.
Just a few weeks ago, the 41-year old Maezawa posted a video on Instagram showing his beloved Zonda ZoZo alongside an Aston Martin One-77.The online shopping magnate only had his ZoZo in shorter than a year and so it doesn’t feel right to see it go just like that.Read the entire article One-off Pagani Zonda ZoZo faces horrible crash in Japan
Pagani has recently unveiled the one-off Zonda 760 Kiryu convertible in Japan, albeit privately. However, there is no need to scour the internet for spy photos since the carmaker has already released several images of the latest iteration of the 760 series to the public.
Just like all other members of the Zonda 760-series, the Pagani Zonda Kiryu is powered by a 760 hp 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, although it remains unclear whether this powerplant will be mated to Pagani’s seven-speed semi-automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox.
Nonetheless, the Pagani Zonda Kiryu will be a rear wheel drive model with an extremely low kerb weight. Just like the 760 LM, the Zonda Kiryu features a bare carbon-fiber body laden with an array of elements designed to improve its aerodynamics like a large splitter on the front, and a larger motorsport-like diffuser and fixed wing on the rear.Read the entire article One-off Pagani Zonda Kiryu released after private unveiling in Japan
Pagani has just unveiled the final version of the Zonda Revolucion to clients and family members during Vanishing Point 2013 - The International Pagani gathering. Presented as the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and art applied to a track car, the new Pagani Zonda Revolucion weighs only 1070 kg as the central monocoque is made from carbon-titanium.
Under the hood, we find an evolution of the Zonda R powerplant, a 6.0-liter V12 engine delivering 800 hp and 730 Nm of torque. Due to its reduced weight, the Pagani Zonda Revolucion has a power to weight ratio of 748 hp per tonne. The engine is mated to a power to weight ratio of 748 hp per tonne, while the traction control is developed by Bosch and features 12 different settings and a renewed ABS system which allows the driver to adapt the car to his driving style.
In terms of aerodynamics, the Zonda Revolucion features a DRS (Drag-Reduction-System) on the rear wing, new deflectors on the front bonnet, as well as a vertical stabilizer mounted on the rear bonnet. The DRS on the rear wing has two different operating modes and both of them can be activated by the driver at any time. The manual system is controlled with the DRS button on the steering wheel.Read the entire article Pagani unveils the Zonda Revolucion, its last version of Zonda

Before ending the run of its Zonda model, Pagani has chosen to release another one-off incarnation of the Zonda. Pagani will soon be replacing the Zonda with the C9. The Italian hypercar producer based this vehicle on the Zonda Cinque and gave it the “750” name.

Meanwhile, the Zonda R, the design of which was started from the bottom up, comes with only about 10 percent of the components of the Zonda F. Special features would include: Avional forged suspension, fresh Pagani 6-speed transversal sequential gear, monocoque in carbon fiber, and a four pump fuel tank.
