Officially, the production of Pagani Zonda has come to an end. But if you turn up at the factory with a sufficiently fat check, they can still make you a Zonda. Why wouldn’t they? It’s a great source of income, and it means there are more Zondas around for us to see and admire. Everybody wins!
The latest Pagani Zonda delivered is a hard-core 760 model finished in bare carbon fiber with black wheels, red brake calipers, and a bordeaux stripe. It’s simple, elegant, and extremely cool. The interior has not been revealed, but it appears to be black as well, save the chrome and aluminum trim pieces such as the instrument binnacle.
This Pagani Zonda 760 is apparently commissioned by a wealthy customer from the United Arab Emirates, and has been in the works since November 2013. If you are not already familiar with what sets the 760 series Zondas apart from normal models, the distinguishing features include more pronounced front splitter and rear diffuser with little winglets on the sides, a huge rear wing, and a roof scoop.
Mechanically, Pagani Zonda 760 is powered by a specially-tuned 7.3 liter AMG V12 engine developing 760 horsepower, hence the name, mated to a sequential transmission with paddle shifters. The 760 is essentially a road going version of the Zonda R track car.
