To be produced in a strictly limited edition of 40 completely made-to-measure cars, the Zonda Roadster reflects PAGANI's philosophy: marrying the most innovative technology to the loving care of the artigiano handwork. The new Zonda Roadster has been designed around truly innovative technology ideas with special care to safety giving uniqueness to the finished exemplar. The personalization of the product, a PAGANIs exclusivity, is realised according to the car owners choice of materials and details such as precious leathers, handtailored by PAGANI's own team of craftsmen, or bespoke components in aluminum and carbon-fiber. The result is a symphony of sights, aesthetic elements, scents and sounds that matches the taste and personality of the lucky driver.
This is an extreme project with the aim to bring the road car, the Zonda F, to the race track for private sessions. The 80 of its components have been re-designed: carbo-titanium monocoque, new engine purposely developed by the Mercedes AMG, 6.0 litres/750 BHP/ dry sump, new suspensions developed by Ohlins, new wheels and tyres compound, new sequential 6-gears gearbox, improved aerodynamic system, reduced weight.
A Pagani Zonda is never shy of a drive at the racetrack, a fact that was underlined numerous times in the past with records for production vehicles at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
With the input of its avid track focused customers, the Pagani team has created the Zonda R using bespoke engineering solutions to meet the performance demands for a track day version of the highly popular Zonda F. The central monocoque is made of a Carbon-Titanium composite, increasing rigiditywhile reducing significantly the weight.
Bolted directly to the chassis is the MercedesAMG 6.0 litre race derived V12 engine, with 750 hp and 710 Nm of torque.
A direct throttle actuation via mechanical cable ensures immediate throttle response.The Xtrac Magnesium cased dog ring gearbox combined with tha Automac EngineeringAMT system performs gearshifts in 20ms, triggered by the drivers input on the paddlesbehind the steering wheel. A 12-way Bosch Motorsport traction control and ABS system allows the driver to fully adjust the settings while driving the Zonda R.At the pits, each driver will be able to find a suitable setup thanks to a fully adjustablesuspension and wing configuration.
The effectiveness of the rear is matched by a complexnew front bonnet, a masterpiece realised with the help of models by Ennegi, as well asthe closed underbody and rear diffusor. Aerodynamic setups rage from a high downforcesetting of 1.500kg to a 350kmh top speed setting.Aspa forged AvionAl suspension components as well as machined structural ErgAl partsholding the engine and gearbox have been designed to reduce the weight of the overallcar, Poggipolini Titanium screws are used on the whole car.
These measures lead to adry weight of 1.070 kg.The interior has been designed to offer a perfect environment for the driver. The controlsare limited to the indispensable, but the quality finish reflects the usual demanding Paganistandards. The bespoke Toora seats are FIA homologated and comply to latest HANSstandards, five-point safety belts and a CrMo roll-cage assure the occupants’ safety.The lucky owners of the Zonda R will experience a level of performance on the track,that is simply not possible on the road.
A power-to-weight ratio of 701 hp-per-ton willcatapult them from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2,7 seconds, the Brembo carbon ceramicbrakes ensure the car comes to a standstill even quicker.The Zonda R is built in a limited production run and sold at a price of 1.460.000 Europlus taxes, a performance machine, a track toy, a collectors item, a masterpiece signedby Horacio Pagani.
