Pagani presents the 2009 Zonda R

The Zonda model is on its way out, this does not mean it`ll go quietly. Before the replacement of Pagani`s present supercar comes, there`s 1 more edition of that wild Italian. So, Pagani unveiled this week Zonda R at the Luxury Motor Show in Vienna.

The Zonda R has 10 models limit each costing 1.4 million Euro (about 1.85 million Dollars). It will be competing with autos like Maserati MC12 Corse and Ferrari FXX. Without license plate, this Zonda is track only car.

Zonda R runs with a V12 AMG engine delivering 750 hp (100 over the Zonda F) with 8000 rpm plus 524 lb. ft. torque. It looks like any other Zonda, but this uses only 10% of the Zonda F car components. The new parts has a suspension forged on aluminium alloy (Avional), a new Pagani 6-speed sequential transversal gearbox, plus a monocoque carbon fiber chassis.

An Italo-American client, enthusiast, already owner of three Zonda units. He describes this project like this: "The thought has been on my mind for quite some time, but I am not interested in racing".
