Pagani Zonda R: The epitome of hypersuperdupercar perfection.

I’ve already touched on this exact variant a while ago, but official pictures were recently released which further highlight this rolling masterpiece’s abilities and beauty.

I remember my first conversion over to Pagani-ism back  in junior high, scouring the net with Yahoo still and the first picture that caught my eye was the quad exhaust coming straight through the center of its back. It was a brilliant silver example, but to be honest, I wasn’t taken in at all. I thought it was a horridly ugly minger, one destined for the graveyard where all misfigured cars go to die. But I rediscovered it a short while later, and glancing over from its short, tightened front haunches to its tiny little alien-spaceship-like bubble cockpit to its audacious split wing sitting over a “gatling-gun” style quad exhaust, I realized this was no mere peon of a supercar. The retro antiquity of the interior sealed the deal for me and I was fully hooked from there on out.

I cannot emphasize how supremely beautiful, how brutally powerful, how much of a rolling pantomime this car is. Mr. Horacio Pagani is extremely detail-oriented and every little facet of every single one of his cars and the entire process from development to production to point of sale is scrutinized ruthlessly.  And as the final call for the Zonda model line, the R version is unrivalled in all areas.

  • The car is track-only, not street legal.
  • Its development was spurred on by a customer (w/ 3 Zondas already!) who wasn’t interested in racing. Thus, this car isn’t restricted by any race-series regulations.
  • Only 10 extremely wealthy, extremely well-connected, lucky lads shall ever enjoy this beauty with its price tag of $1.87 million, before taxes.

Of course, after buying this magnificent achievement of a car, you’ll need a matching hi-fi 2000 watt sound system to… match your car. Oh yes.

I love how the speakers mimic the exhaust design.

Stunning. I’ll take it!
