Pagani C9 spied in South Africa without camouflage

Even though in Europe we have one of the harshest winters of the last decade, offering great conditions for the automakers to do thorough winter tests, some of the companies decide to pass this opportunity and head out to some of the hottest regions on the planet. More precisely, a Pagani C9 was spotted doing hot weather tests in Upington, South Africa. From what it seems, the tests were done at about 39 degrees Celsius or 102 degrees Fahrenheit, near the Kalahari Desert.

The car seen in the above picture is clearly a Pagani, being probably in the body of a Pagani Zonda F , featuring a Formula 1 style nose, split headlights, arch mounted side mirrors and large wheel arches. The center mounted quad pipes of the Pagani Zonda seem to have been replaced by dual tailpipes.

The Pagani C9 will replace the current Pagani Zonda . The Pagani C9 will be launched this year and will have a price of 900.000 Euros or the equivalent of over 1.200.000 U.S. dollars. The annual production of the Pagani C9 will be of 40 units. The Pagani C9 will get its power from a 6.0 liter V12 engine from Mercedes AMG that has an output of 700 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque. The Pagani C9 will get 3770 newly developed parts, including a carbon titanium chassis.

We will be looking forward to see the production version of the Pagani C9 when it comes out later this year.
