While most of you (including us) will never get to drive a Pagani Zonda, we can at least drool over the images and details of the fastest Zonda ever built. The Pagani Zonda R is here and while it looks very similar to previous Zonda supercars, Pagani says that the Zonda R is 90 percent new.
Immediately you can tell that the Zonda R is wider, longer and lower than its Zonda F sibling. The supercar is built from super-high-tech carbon fiber and titanium blend that costs about four times as much as the material used to produce the original Zonda.
Power comes from a 6.0L V12 from Mercedes that produces a total of 739-hp. All that power is transferred to the rear wheels through Pagani’s first paddle shift gearbox capable of changing gears in just 20 milliseconds. 0 to 62 mph comes in just 3 seconds flat with a top speed of 233 mph. Of course, Pagani believes that the Zonda R will be much faster than the Zonda F which lapped the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 28 seconds.
Want one? Pagani is only building 15 units, 10 of which have already been sold. Pricing starts at €1.4m which converts to $1.8 million in USD.
