One-off Pagani Zonda Kiryu released after private unveiling in Japan

Article by Christian A., on November 17, 2015

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.

This wing, while smaller than the one found on the 760 LM, features a LMP-spec fin and large roof scoop present on previous 760 models.

Distinguishing the Zonda Kiryu from other 760-series is its exterior that is mostly covered by blue tinted carbon fiber, as complemented with more traditional carbon fiber on the front splitter, wing mirrors, side skirts, headlight surrounds, rear fascia, wheel arches and diffuser.

The convertible’s rear wing and its Zonda Cinque-inspired roof scoop also use carbon fiber. Further giving the Zonda Kiryu its distinct looks are key design elements like the gloss black center-lock wheels, blue brake calipers, blue headlights and the circular exhaust housing finished in blue.

Additionally, the convertible exterior is distinguished by black eight-spoke wheels with large brake discs and blue calipers. It is a bit of a challenge to appreciate all of the details of the Zonda Kiryu’s interior just by looking at the pictures.

What is very apparent though is that the color scheme on the exterior is continued to the interior, with blue leather covering most surfaces and aluminum inserts being blacked out.
