Pagani C9 set to replace Zonda this year

The Pagani C9 successor to the exclusive Zonda supercar is moving ever closer to its unveiling later this year.

Pagani boss man Horacio Pagani spoke recently with Autoblog Argentina and revealed the first details for his new supercar.

Power will come from a 6.0 litre V12 Mercedes-Benz AMG engine tuned to produce around 520kW and 1000Nm of torque, the Pagani C9 will rival the 550kW/710Nm of the company’s top brass Zonda R (pictured) which was limited to just 16 examples.

The C9 is said to be a completely new car, from concept, weight distribution, materials and dynamics. It will feature more than 3,770 new parts among which are a carbon-titanium chassis, specially developed Pirelli tires and Bosch electronics. The styling should be similar to the Zonda but overall proportions will be smaller.

Pagani will build no more than 40 units each year, with pricing expected to start at a hefty $1.2 million USD.

Production of the current Zonda and its various models, meanwhile, is expected to end this September. Beyond that, Pagani will be moving into a new production facility, which will allow it to boost production to around 60 cars per year from the current 16.
