Pagani unleashes 588kW Zonda

Its 588kW V12 AMG engine and weighs 1070kg.

Pagani-01

The 6-litre V12 AMG engine fitted to the Zonda R, modified to produce 588kW and 730Nm. Hold tight for its 2.7 second 0-100km/h blast and 350km/h top speed.

Pagani-02

This engine's mated to a six-speed magnesium transversal and sequential gearbox that's said to swop cogs in just 20 milliseconds.

Horacio Pagani and his team have also done some aerodynamic work, like putting new deflectors on the front bonnet, a vertical stabiliser on the rear bonnet and a Drag Reduction System on the rear wing. The latter has two operating modes, which can be activated by the driver at the driver at any time.

What's more, the Brembo braking system gains some F1 technology in the form of CCMR discs that are stiffer and 15 percent lighter than previous CCM discs.

The Pagani Zonda Revolucion will go on sale in Europe for a cool 2.2 million Euros, which translates to a jaw-dropping R28.3-million.
