This is Pagani Zonda Revolucion hypercar, costs 2.2 million Euros, is equipped with a 6.0 liter V12, and represents the farewell special edition, from the brand’s founder Horacio Pagani, for the Zonda model.
About two weeks ago at the 9th meeting of Pagani, the company revealed the new Pagani Zonda Revolucion. This special edition is also the formally swansong of the Zonda name.
Pagani Zonda Revolucion – Engine & Design & Price
Pagani Zonda Revolucion is equipped with an AMG Mercedes 6.0 liter V12 engine that develops 800 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque(538 pound-feet). Having just 1,070 kilograms (2,360 lbs) thanks to the use of carbon-titanium for the bodywork, the new hypercar has an impressive power/weight ratio of just 1.33 kg/hp (2.9 lbs/hp).
The new Zonda Revolucion has a six-speed sequential transmission made of magnesium, which can change gears in just 20ms. The power is kept in check by a traction control system from Bosch, which has 12 possible settings, to ensure adherence in many driving conditions.
As for braking, Pagani Zonda Revolucion has an ABS system updated and boasts with special Pirelli Zerp Corsa tires. Aerodynamics is improved with new deflectors on the boot lid and bonnet and the rear spoiler has a system that mimics the Formula 1 DRS.
To actually stop the new Zonda, Pagani introduced a Brembo braking system with CCMR technology for the brake discs from Formula 1, 15% lighter than the items they replace and more durable than these, being almost four times more durable in the same driving conditions.
We do not know how many copies of the new hypercar will be manufactured or when will it be available, but we know the Pagani Zonda Revolucion price – and that is EUR 2.2 million ($2.9 mil / £1.9 mil).
In the video below, we can see the Pagani Zonda R at Nurburgring Nordschleife, piloted by Marc Basseng in a record time of 6:47 in 2010. The model develops 750 hp and 710 Nm (523 lb-ft), being less powerful than the Pagani Zonda Revolucion special edition. Pagani Zonda R was produced in only 15 copies, each costing EUR 1.5 million.
The Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and art applied to a track car. Horacio Pagani and his team have created a car designed to amaze both on the track and in a car collection.
Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the ultimate experience for individuals who want to experience the thrill of an extreme track experience, in a safe and intuitive machine. Pagani Zonda Revolucion, like all creatures coming our to the Atelier in San Cesario sul Panaro, is tailor made. An object where art and science blend to create a perfect synthesis of technology, performance and aesthetics. A new masterpiece signed by Horacio Pagani.
Horacio Pagani, Owner and chief designer of Pagani Automobili:
“Limits are made to be overcome. We knew that Pagani Zonda R was already a fast car, the fastest ever on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. We knew it would be very difficult to design and build a car that was even more extreme. But thanks to the creativity of our designers, engineers, and the whole Pagani family, we created a beautiful object and the fastest Pagani vehicle ever. A car that I am sure will electrify all our customers and fans all over the world.”
