…The Pagani Zonda R is real?

Pagani Zonda R

Pictures of the mythical Pagani Zonda R have been floating around for some time now, but I was hesitant to post them because they seemed to be just that: mythical, made up of mostly renderings and drawings.

Well thankfully, the Pagani Zonda R is very real and very worthy of its mythical status, and is set to tear up a track near you in the very near future.

Pagani Zonda R Details

Based on the already potent Pagani Zonda F, but with only about 10% carried over from the street going version, the Zonda R manages to improve on every area of the car. With 6.0 liters of Mercedes-Benz V12 on tap producing 750hp and 710Nm of torque, the 2,359 lb race car gets to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, and tops out at a mind numbingly fast 233 mph.

Pagani Zonda R Interior

If you can see it, it’s either been stripped down, made of carbon fiber, or eliminated, and everything is designed for one goal: Going fast enough to outrun death itself.

Speed and exclusivity definitely don’t come cheap however, as buyers of this ultra-rare uber-car will need to shell out nearly $2 million for the privilege, but if you’ve got the cash, I can’t think of a better way to spend it.

…It’s Website Wednesday: 1 Millimeter A Day?

1 Millimeter A Day

Chris Hornbecker took on a rather unique project for 2008: He wanted to take a photograph each day using a focal length that was one millimeter more than the previous day’s photo. Starting at 14mm and working his way all the way up to 389mm, the project was called 1 Millimeter A Day, and definitely forced him to look at things from a different perspective.

Take a look through the archives to see what he created, because there’s definitely some inspiring stuff in there for anyone that spends their time behind the lens.

…The Big Picture shows it like it is?

The Big Picture

Apparently I’m a little late to the party on this one, but The Boston Globe’s The Big Picture is a fantastic photo blog that uses huge and beautiful pictures to tell stories that normally only get a thousand words inside of the newspaper.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MAT’s Ferrari 308 GTB?

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 Rally Car

When you think of rally racing and rally cars, you probably don’t think of Ferrari’s prancing horse, but Makela Auto Tuning sure does, since they were the creators of this fantastic 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 rally car.

The process involved stripping the entire car down to its bare frame and then building it from the ground up using all new parts, and the end result speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out their site for more than 250 pictures that document the entire process and every step along the way.

…Stranger photos have happened?

Stranger PhotosJay from The Plug created an interesting project called Stranger Photos Have Happened where he tied a disposable camera to a bench with a sign reading:

    Good Afternoon,

    I attached this camera to the bench so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I’ll be back later this evening to pick it up.

    Love,

    Jay / The Plug

Later that day, he did in fact go pick the camera up, and after developing the film, he posted the pics to his site for the world to see.
