Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster

Pagani developed a Roadster version of the Zonda Cinque that will be produced as a limited edition. The carmaker reduced the weight to offer more driving pleasure and the carbon-titanium chassis has been redesigned for the compensation of a missing roof. It is powered by a Mercedes AMG V12 engine that is capable of delivering 678 horsepower and 780 Nm of torque and it costs EUR1.3 million. The new Roadster is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and braking from 100 to 0 km/h can be done in 2.1 seconds. All the power produced is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed sequential transmission robotized by Automac engineering.

Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster

The Pagani roadcar model range would not be complete without a Roadster version of the Zonda Cinque. As the name implies it is created in the Modenese Atelier in a limited production run of merely five exclusive pieces like its coupe sister.

All weight reduction measures adopted by Pagani to improve driving pleasure, performance and emission of the Zonda Cinque have found use in the Cinque Roadster as well. The Carbon-Titanium chassis has been redesigned for the compensation of a missing roof.

Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster experience is enhanced with the roof stored in the front bonnet, when the storm of air being fed to the 678hp Mercedes AMG V12 engine through the massive intake just inches over the passengers` ears, accompanies the exhaust note of the bespoke Zonda Cinque Inconel and Titanium exhaust system.

Whether you opt for a relaxed country drive in Tuscany`s hills, visiting Florence and other centres of the Italian Renaissance, or a record hunt at the Nürburgring, this 1.3 milion Euro + taxes jewel will reward with every day driveability and ultimate performance thanks to the different drive modes of the sequential robostised gearbox and an adjustable suspension setup
that feels at home as well at the racetrack as on bumpy roads.

The constant efforts of Horacio Pagani and his team shows once again how art and engineering can be combined in the Zonda Cinque Roadster.
