Ladies and gentlemen, Horatio Pagani is proud to present the final, ultimate version of his original supercar masterpiece. It’s called the Pagani Zonda Revolucion. And to paraphrase Lennon/McCartney, we’d say we want one.
The Zonda Revolucion—limited to five examples—weighs 2,358 pounds, and comes with a twin-turbo 6.0 liter AMG V12 that makes 800 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. Let’s repeat that: 2,358 pounds, 800 horsepower. That’s 2.95 pounds per horsepower. The Porsche 918 Spyder with weight-saving Weissach Package lugs around 4.08 pounds per horsepower.
The transmission is a six-speed sequential manual gearbox that fires off shifts in 20 milliseconds, while the traction control system offers no less than 12 settings to control all that AMG-sourced muscle. The rear wing also comes with an F1-esque drag reduction system that, with the push of a steering-wheel-mounted button, allows the driver to switch from maximum downforce to minimum downforce.
Like all Paganis, the Zonda Revolucion is custom-made for each owner—of which there will only be five, from what we hear. Four of them have reportedly already been spoken for, but the fifth car could be yours…for $2.9 million, plus taxes. [via Pagani]
Pagani Zonda Revolucion at the 9° Pagani Gathering
The evolution of the species, the revolution in the concept of art applied to pure speed. Pagani
Automobili unveiled the final version of the Pagani Zonda Revolucion to clients and family
members during Vanishing Point 2013 – The International Pagani gathering.
The Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and
art applied to a track car. Horacio Pagani and his team have created a car designed to amaze
both on the track and in a car collection.
The central monocoque is carbon-titanium, the needle on the scale stops at 1070 kg. The
AMG Mercedes engine is an evolution of the Zonda R powerplant. The 6.0-liter V12 now
develops an output of 800 hp and 730 Nm of torque, resulting in a power to weight ratio of
748 hp per tonne.
The 6 speed magnesium transversal and sequential gearbox changes gears in 20ms. The
traction control developed by Bosch with 12 different settings and the renewed ABS system,
allows the driver to adapt the behavior of the car to his driving style.
The Zonda R program has always represented the highest expression of the technology at
Pagani Automobili. The aerodynamics feature important innovations, like new deflectors on
the front bonnet, as well as a vertical stabilizer mounted on the rear bonnet.
Pagani Zonda Revolucion also features a DRS (Drag-Reduction-System) on the rear wing.
The system has two different operating modes, both can be activated by the driver at any time.
The manual system is controlled with the DRS button on the steering wheel. 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. The result is a
car that is always fast, a strong performer able to take on any circuit in the world.
The Brembo braking system adopts new cutting edge F1-tecnology derived CCMR discs. With
a weight saving of 15% compared to the previous CCM discs, the CCMR offer higher stiffness
and lower operating temperatures on extreme track use. This contributes to the life of the disc
which is increased by four times, with no sign of fading and a significant overall increase in
Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the ultimate experience for individuals who want to experience the
thrill of an extreme track experience, in a safe and intuitive machine. Pagani Zonda Revolucion,
like all creatures coming our to the Atelier in San Cesario sul Panaro, is tailor made. An object
where art and science blend to create a perfect synthesis of technology, performance and
aesthetics. A new masterpiece signed by Horacio Pagani.
Pagani Zonda Revolucion is on sale at a price of 2.2 million Euros plus taxes.
Horacio Pagani, Owner and chief designer of Pagani Automobili:
“Limits are made to be overcome. We knew that Pagani Zonda R was already a fast car, the
fastest ever on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. We knew it would be very difficult to design
and build a car that was even more extreme. But thanks to the creativity of our designers,
engineers, and the whole Pagani family, we created a beautiful object and the fastest Pagani
vehicle ever. A car that I am sure will electrify all our customers and fans all over the world.”
