    On the 25th of September the Pagani Factory set a new record on the Nordschleife in a street legal car: 7:27:82! They beat the old record (Porsche Carrera GT) by 5 seconds! The Zonda F is very aerodynamic, making it possible to get 1.5G in a turn!

    Wow what a car and what a tribute to the man of who it is named after; Fangio. What's with the US style date though, I thought the Italians did it the right way?

    From wikipedia, are these not street legal or are they wrong?

    also on the radical wikipedia thing;

    I know wikipedia is quite often compleatly wrong but with 7 cars above it?

    This really is wrong by the looks of things.

    From radical's site. A road spec SR8 did it in 6.55 in 2005.



    OK looking more into this it is only for production supercars. Is the radical not classed as being in production or a supercar for some reason?

    It is road legal, but it's not a production car... :)

    Maybe it could have something to do with the car "being in road legal trim" rather than just a standard production road legal car. Ha. I never thought I'd call the Zonda F standard!

    Damn you MB, beat me to it...

    I don't mean to sound like a Pagani fanboy, because I think fanboys are the spawn of satan, but it was a specially tuned M3. The Zonda was just your standard run of the mill Zonda F (yes, I do realise how silly that sounds). So, as the article says - what exactly is a production car if they only did the car for this event?

    If it was tuned then it isn't a production car which puts it in the league of the Radical so it hasn't beaten it. Right I need punctuation.

    that is true, but it still is an achievement the times they are getting round that track now, whether it be a production car or not

    Actually, it has beaten it. It just does not qualify for the Fastest Production Vehicle Record.

    No, it quite did. It is a faster car, therefore it has beaten the Zonda F in completing the 'Ring in a shorter time.

    The Zonda F is the fastest production car on the 'Ring. However, when folks ask who are the fastest cars on the 'Ring, this M3 will have beaten the Zonda F. No one's comparing them directly as you can't, but in the end, the folks behind the BMW beat the Zonda F's time.
