There are two great moments in Argentine motoring history centered around the Nürburgring and then there’s a third, a fourth-place finish at a race you’ve never heard of. Of course it’s the latter that’s the pride and joy of Argentine car enthusiasts: the story of the Torinos at the 1969 Nürburgring 84 Hours.
6:48 versus the ultimate record of 6:11 means a quasi-production car is now within 10% of the time set in the fastest Porsche sports prototype by a man who made Ayrton Senna look timid. Let’s dive into some numbers.
Do not adjust your screens: the world around this Pagani Zonda R lapping the Nurburgring in a record 6:47.5 is in fact blurry. You'll want to grab headphones and a jaw supporter, lest your chin hit the floor while watching.
You're going to want to take three minutes, put down what you're doing and watch this. Pagani put together an homage to its track-day specialist, the Zonda R. It's the finest piece of product-focused marketing we've seen in ages.

Judging by the concepts and production cars making their debuts in Geneva this week, the auto industry hasn't noticed the Carpocalypse, bringing out supercars, exotics and mega luxury vehicles. Here's everything from day one.
As the finale in the Zonda line, the Pagani Zonda R brings the heat with a 739 HP 6.0-liter V12, weight chopped down to 2,360 pounds and a 0-to-60 time of three seconds.
As much as we all love the Pagani Zonda R, it's one of those cars so ridiculously out of reach we have to avoid thinking about it sometimes. Powered by an AMG-sourced V12, the Zonda R and Zonda F Clubsport are among the most extreme track toys our weak minds can imagine. We sadly reported last year that Pagani would…
Because the old Zonda wasn't bat guano enough, right? This sucker seems to have been born from the same design chic that hatched the Countach 5000QV. That is to say, "Josepi, if you find any flat surfaces, put a scoop in 'em. Also, definitely needs more wing." Apparently more power (up to 750 horses) and carbon fiber,…
