This Is One Angry Little Zonda F!

Zonda F Rev 600x340 at This Is One Angry Little Zonda F!

There are so many different variants of the Pagani Zonda around these days that it’s really hard to keep track of them all. But being kinda old-school, we prefer the early ones like Zonda F which first came out in 2005. At 650 horsepower, this version is not the most powerful Zonda out there, but it is the rawest and most savage road-going version, on the evidence of the sounds it makes when you step on its rightmost pedal!

We never cease to be amazed by what Pagani achieved with the Zonda. The looks, the sounds, the feel, everything about this car is as exquisite as it gets. What’s particularly cool about the Zonda F is that that “F” is a tribute to Juan Manuel Fangio, the greatest racing driver in history.
