Pagani Zonda R to Deliver Utimate Racetrack Performance

Italian automaker Pagani has earlier divulged plans for a track-specific version of its Zonda supercar. Now the ideals of the said supercar are imbibed in the Zonda R version.

According to the automaker, the new coupe was designed with “the ultimate performance at the racetrack without any implications of rules, except for safety.”

With the supercar equipped with a 7.3 liter V12 engine sourced from AMG by Mercedes-Benz, it also debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The said variant is intended to rival cars like the Ferrari FXX. Compared to its sibling – the Zonda F, the R variant is designed from scratch. It only carried over 10 percent of Zonda F’s components.

The spark of the supercar potentials has been set by an Italo-American customer, enthusiast and already proud owner of 3 Zondas. He describes the project as: “The thought has been on my mind for quite some time, but I am not interested in racing.”

The Zonda R is born with full liberty. The equation is set forth by the automaker to bring out the best performance without any compromising comfort and safety. In September last year, the first sketches were ready, but the support of Mercedes-AMG for a high revving engine cannot be overemphasized. The engine was inspired by the CLK GTR, which has dominated the GT championships.

What is found under the hood increased output of the supercar to 750 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 523lb-ft of torque. The power of Zonda R is complemented by its high performance parts that include a racing multiple disc sintered clutch, a lightweight carbon fire intake system and a Formula 1 style exhaust system. To boost optimal heat dissipation, the hydroformed in Inconel 625 was integrated to the car. The power is mated to a 6 speed transversal manual sequential synchronized gearbox to satisfy the craving of enthusiast for a nerve-racking driving.

Aside from the engine, the Pagani Zonda R also boasts of its central carbon chassis with a roll cage, rubber racing aeronautical fuel tank, four fuel pumps, and refuel filler similar to that of GT race cars. To make the supercar equation more favorable to enthusiasts, the wheelbase was increased by 47mm, the overall length by 394 mm and the track is increased by 50mm. The bodywork and aerodynamics have been meticulously designed to offer maximum downforce. The longer front bonnet with flaps, rear overhang with the adjustable rear wing, and closed underbody and race derived diffuser transform into crushing superb efficiency. The said features allow drivers to experience cornering speeds beyond imagination.

Even though built for the track, the supercar boasts its quality, details and finish which are incomparable with Pagani road cars. One of the first cars will be kept in a living room designed by Pagani. It is built with the same materials as the Zonda F. Sophisticated materials include avional, carbon fibre, titanium, inconel and other cutting-edge materials. The supercar also features a bespoke HiFi System that allows occupants to enjoy music at the Le Mans and the N?rburgring.

The interior of the Zonda R is designed to accommodate the driver and passenger in bespoke seats and these are intended to provide the best kind of support. The Digitek instrumentation provides the essential information and a sophisticated telemetry allows through an assortment of sensors to monitor all components of the car.

Weekend racetrack fanatics as well as the most demanding purchasers could make the most out of Pagani Zonda R nonetheless they must be ready to pay a hefty sum amounting to about $1.2 million plus taxes.
