Evolution of the Species: The Zonda Revolucion
The International Pagani Automobili gathering last week saw the Italian hypercar specialist unleash the final version of their Zonda Revolucion. Which means a mere €2.2 million can now buy you the fastest Pagani, ever.
Vanishing Point 2013 – Pagani’s yearly event held at HQ – was keeping this wild hellion hidden in a cobbled Italian courtyard. It had to stay in the courtyard mind, because it’s not actually street legal.
New deflectors on the front bonnet, a new vertical stabiliser on the rear bonnet, and a new Drag-Reduction-System on the rear wing all mean the Revolucion has grown and evolved into a car that can handle even more extremes, and even more power.
‘Art and science blend to create a perfect synthesis of technology’, they announced (which basically means it’s so beautiful you could weep). F1 technology-derived CCMR discs have been used for the braking system, the most cutting-edge you can get, so they offer higher stiffness and lower operating temperatures on extreme track use. Good to know, considering the 6.0-liter V12 now develops a ridiculous 800 hp and 730 Nm of torque.
“Limits are made to be overcome”, said Horacio Pagani whilst standing over this latest masterpiece, and he was right. The Pagani Zonda R was already a fast car; the fastest ever on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. Until this delinquent came of age, that is.
