Pagani Zonda

The 2009 Pagani Zonda R model is a bit more uptown than its predecessor. The exterior is striking with its large rear wing and the diffuser flaunt that the automobile is made to go fast. These features with the low slung aerodynamic front fascia and the closed in under-body insure the wheels stay on the road with cockpit adjustable down-force of up to 3,300 pounds can be applied. The chassis is a blend of materials-aircraft grade aluminum, titanium, and magnesium with titanium bolts and screws holding it together. The shell is a carbon-titanium composite and of monocoque design-similar to a uni-body with the body used to add structural strength. The suspension is also fully adjustable by the driver while in motion with components supplied by Aspa and AvionAl while stopping quickly is also insured with the Brembo front and rear disc brakes. The car is available with rear wheel drive but a AWD version can be optioned.

The interior sports only the necessary equipment and gauges needed to give the operator only essential information but the high quality materials used and impeccable workmanship flaunt the highest standards one could imagine. The Toora seats are custom fit and are FIA approved with five point restraints which are also in compliance with the newest standards set by HANS. The occupants are protected with an ultra-strong highest quality Chromium-Molybdenum steel tubular roll cage. The driver can operate the automobile on roadways although if speed limits are in place where you live then a racetrack is the only place to experience all the Zonda has to offer.

The AMG Mercedes 6.0 Liter racing V12 engine is bolted directly to the frame and will deliver 750 hp (551.6 kW) at 7,500 rpm and will produce 524 ft-lb (710.45 Nm) of torque developed at 5,700 rpm. The carburetor is activated by a cable linkage ensuring an immediate and dependable response when the operator applies the throttle allowing the car to do 0-60 (97 km/h) in under 2.6 seconds and have a top speed of 218 mph (350.84 km/h) or more. The shift paddles are mounted behind the steering wheel to provide easy access for performing shifts in 20 milli-seconds.

The gear box is housed in a strong, light weight magnesium casing coupled to a six speed transmission manufactured by Automatac Engineering (ATM) systems although a semi-automatic version is also available. This is a road car ready to give a very presentable performance at any race track anytime anywhere. But if you are seriously thinking of purchasing one a figure eight track set up in your back yard might be more convenient. A Pagani Zonda could be yours for around $750.00 per pound and since the cars curb weight is 2,359 pounds that would be in the neighborhood of 1.8 million US dollars for a new one and there were only 16 of this limited edition built. If you want the automobile in North America you will have to pay slightly more but a used one could be an option in 2014.
