    Default End of the line for the Zonda

    Something tells me they said this a while back, but I'd not heard of it and I'm surprised that there were no threads about it. If it is old, my apologies. Anywho, TG's Zonda R article:
    Quote Originally Posted by Top Gear
    Open wide and say R

    We’ve seen sketches and renderings galore, but here it is in all its carbon fibre-clad, titanium-strewn glory: the Pagani Zonda R.

    Just unveiled in Vienna, the R is the very final iteration of the Zonda, a 739bhp, Mercedes V12-powered, lightweight monster that says ‘so long, and thanks for all the tyre smoke’ pretty damn effectively, in our book.

    Though the R represents an emotional send-off for the Zonda – don’t worry, Pagani says it’s working on a brand new hypercar (codenamed the C9) for next year – it shares just 10 per cent of its components with previous models.

    The bodywork is composed of a seriously lightweight, seriously expensive carbon fibre-titanium blend, meaning the rear-drive R tips the scales at just over 1000kg. Yes, that’s a 700bhp-per-tonne power-to-weight ratio.

    With Pagani’s first paddshift gearbox taking care of transmission duties, that means a 0-60 time of three seconds dead (sheesh) and a 233mph top speed (double sheesh). You’ll probably need to fiddle with the adjustable aero flim-flams to make sure you don’t enter the stratosphere at that speed.

    Just 16 Zonda Rs will be built – fifteen will go on sale to the public, and one will stay ‘in company hands’ at Pagani – at a cost of around 1.3 million each. Oh, and you won’t even be able to drive it on the road. Not legally, anyhow.

    But, quite frankly, who the hell is going to be able to catch you to tell you off?*

    *Top Gear does not condone driving faster than Her Majesty’s law enforcement officers. Oh no.

    When I first saw a Zonda in 1999, I was hoping it was the last Zonda. Since then, it's been an endless stream of batmobile-esque, near-blasphemous abominations to the supercar world.

    Glad to see a little light at the end of the tunnel...
    This is my signature until I can think of something better.

    Don't like it, Whats in the point if you can't drive it to the med. There are better track cars, these just give you a huge buzz just being in one, on a track I feel this will spoil it.

    Yeah, it's very sad news, but I've been waiting for some real variation in Zonda's for years and its never happened, so I'm not really bothered about it that much anymore . But yeah, I'd love to have one, but they're just WAYY too wide and low to drive them anywhere .

    Hopefully Pagani would make the Zonda successor looking good, the Zonda looks medicore at best imo, well, at least compared to cars like the CCX, MC12, Enzo, F1 and Veyron.

    Edit: But this is still a good track car.

    There is no camouflage. They're just using a modified Zonda body to test the new car's tech.
