Pagani busy at work on Zonda R

Pagani Zonda R fq

The Pagani Zonda is facing down retirement, it’s due to be replaced by Pagani’s next masterpiece, currently code-named the C9. To see the current Zonda off, Pagani is working on the Zonda R, limiting production to ten examples. The ‘R’ must stand for really expensive, the vehicle has a price tag of €2,000,000 ($4.3m NZ).

Despite looking very similar to the Zonda F, the R only shares ten percent of the outgoing model’s underpinnings, and instead, gets a brand new shape that’s 47mm longer, providing even greater downforce through the use of a longer splitter, rear defuser and wing.

Pagani won’t be reusing the 750-hp, 7.3-liter Mercedes motor, instead it will go for the 6.0-liter AMG V12 putting out similar hp and torque figures. Five road-going versions are planned, while the remaining five will be limited to circuit action only. The Zonda R should be unveiled next year, most likely at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
