Ring of Fire: Pagani Zonda F Clubsport Takes the Nurburgring Fastest Lap

Illustration for article titled Ring of Fire: Pagani Zonda F Clubsport Takes the Nurburgring Fastest Lap

What a difference two tenths of a second make. The Pagani Zonda F Clubsport recently made it around Germany's Nürburgring faster then the previous production-car record holder, the Porsche Carrera GT. The lightweight, super hi-po Zonda did the Green Hell's 14.2 miles in 7:27:82, edging out the Porsche's 7:28. The Mercedes 7.3-liter V12 powered Zonda's combination of massive power (641 hp), low weight (2700 lbs) and massive downforce conspired to give the Zonda a hair's breadth advantage. Yes, but will it blend? [Winding Road]

DISCUSSION

Has there ever been a Pagani Zonda ever imported into the US? It would have to be transformed into something quite hideous to even pass the feds. Things like bumpers, side marker lights, a raised height to make sure the headlamps are at a minimum height, a CHMSL, and on and on.....

I know the Ferrari Enzo was privately imported by a few wealthy patrons, but I doubt if this thing has.
