Pagani Zonda Revolucion

What? Another Zonda? Why yes, and why not – although it’s been around since 1999, it must surely rank as one of the greatest hypercars of the modern era and as we know from recent history, it simply refuses to die. So put your hands together now for the Pagani Zonda Revolucion.

The familiar 6.0 litre Mercedes-AMG V12 has been tuned to produce a whopping 800 hp and 730 Nm of torque (Zonda R 740 hp, 709 Nm), and because the Revolucion tips the scales at a remarkable 1.07 tonnes (thanks to a carbon-titanium monocoque), this translates to a power-to-weight ratio of 748 hp per tonne. That’s more than the McLaren P1.

The Pagani Zonda Revolucion features improved aerodynamics through the inclusion of new bonnet deflectors and a vertical rear stabiliser, while its ABS has been updated. Its Bosch traction control has no fewer than 12 settings and its magnesium six-speed sequential ‘box changes gears in 20 milliseconds.

Also new are the brake discs – they’re Brembo CCMR units, weighing 15% less than the previous CCM discs and offering more stiffness as well as lower operating temperatures. The life of the disc, Pagani says, is four times longer than before.

The rear wing incorporates a Drag Reduction System – the driver can switch between maximum and minimum downforce settings via a button on the steering wheel. Holding the button down for more than two seconds puts the DRS in auto mode.

Want one? Of course you do, and here are the obstacles: €2.2 million (RM8.9 million) plus taxes, and according to CarBuzz, only five will be made – four of which have already been sold. Bother!
