The new Pagani Zonda is already out on the roads as engineers test the newly developed prototype. An upgrade to the nine-year old model, the new Pagani Zonda has soft curves instead of the sharp creases, a larger grille and larger intakes, hinting at more power.
Word on the street is that the current AMG supplied 7.3 liter V12 that produces 547-hp will be replaced by a new supercharged 5.4 liter V8 from the McLaren SLR.
Along with being more fuel-efficient the engine is capable of producing up to 680-hp. With the use of lightweight carbon fiber construction, that should give the new Pagani Zonda the ability to do 0-60 in the low three second range with a top speed beyond 200mph. First production versions are due out in early 2009.
