Pagani’s founder has confirmed that the company will launch its Zonda replacement, the C9, at the end of 2010. Horacio Pagani told reporters that the C9 will be powered by an AMG derived 6.0L V12 engine making 690-hp and 737 lb-ft of torque.
He said that the car will be completely different in terms of design, weight, materials and dynamics and will feature 3,770 new parts. The chassis of the C9 will be carbon-titanium, with the electronics sourced from Bosch and exclusive tires from Pirelli.
The Pagani C9 will be sold in the United States since it will meet strict crash safety tests and California emissions law. Pagani hopes to build 40 units a year at price of 900,000 euros ($1,272,624 USD).
