Auto-Erotic Design: The Pagani Zonda’s Wing Mirror

Horacio Pagani’s first and only super car is a cornucopia of baroque executed in carbon fiber. One detail stands out: the outlandish side-view mirrors. Can you show us one that's more sexy?

Auto-Erotic Design: The Pagani Zonda’s Wing Mirror

The Zonda is probably the most visually overwhelming car on the market. It’s got a leather purse for a glovebox, a Gatling gun for exhausts and the flight deck of an aircraft carrier for an engine cover. It skates right up to the edge of too busy, like the buildings of the Registan, the square in the heart of the ancient Central Asian city of Samarkand, and we can thank the good lord of delayed technology that is still has a need for wing mirrors instead of simply using cameras.

For these mirrors are so over the top that you, dear commenter, who is now tasked with showing us a photo of a sexier one, have got your work cut of for you. A thin stalk of carbon fiber, upon which sits a gorgeous curve of a mirror housing. Top that. Top it with carbotanium.

Have you got a hotter wing mirror than the Zonda’s? Prove it—post away!
