The $2.9 Million Pagani Zonda Revolucion Is A Zonda R On AcidS

The first modern supercar that was essentially an F1 machine with a licence plate was the Ferrari F50 in 1995. Fast forward 18 years, and you get to the Zonda Revolucion, which could eat that stallion for breakfast. But it won't get a plate.

Before you would start wondering about the track-only Zonda R or Lewis Hamilton's 760 hp ride, let me stop you. This has 748 hp per tonne. The central monocoque is carbon-titanium, and the whole car weighs only 2,358 pounds while the engine is the Zonda R's upgraded 6.0-liter V12 developing 800 horses and 538 foot-pounds.

What makes it an F1 car is not only the fact that it comes with a 6-speed magnesium transversal and sequential gearbox with a 20ms shift time and a Bosch-developed traction control with 12 different settings, but also that it has a 2-mode DRS system just like Nico Rosberg's ride:

The rear wing changes between maximum and minimum downforce settings, at the occurrence of a lateral acceleration of + / - 0.8 g and a minimum speed of 100 km / h. Holding down the DRS for more than two seconds engages the DRS to work automatically according to the algorithms developed by the Pagani Automobili engineers during the development phase.

Add the new, lighter and more durable carbon-ceramic brakes and Pirelli's sticky tires to the package, and you end up with the fastest and more hardcore Zonda ever with the price tag of $2.87 million plus taxes.

No wonder Horacio Pagani will sign it himself...
