…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.

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.

…The Pagani Zonda F is Fast?

Pagani Zonda F

The Pagani Zonda F is a special kind of sexy; with miles of carbon fiber covering the outside in a way that just screams speed.

The Nurburgring is an often public racetrack that is tucked away in the heart of Germany, and is used as a test track for some of the automotive elite.

Combine the two, and add in an HD camera co-pilot, and you have one of the best in car videos of all time. (Way better than the usual in car video, which looks like it was filmed with a cell phone.)

For reference, the Zonda recently set the record for the fastest lap of the ring, with a time of just 7:27.82 through the 12.9 mile loop, easily toping Porsche’s Carrera GT (the previous record holder) by almost 4 seconds.
