You buy a Ferrari when you want to be somebody, as Frank Sinatra once stated. When you are someone, you purchase a Lamborghini. Perhaps he was unaware of Pagani at the time. The Revolucion, the next incarnation of the Zonda, has been unveiled by the Italian manufacturer. As is customary for Pagani vehicles, it is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 Mercedes AMG engine that produces 800 horsepower and provides a unique driving experience when paired with a six-speed magnesium transversal sequential gearbox with a 20-millisecond gear shift time. The CCMR disc brakes, which are lighter than their predecessors and function at cooler temperatures, aid in bringing the 800 horses to a stop. Modern innovations like the DRS (Drag Reduction System), which modifies the rear wing’s downforce settings for improved stability, have been added by owner and designer Horacio Pagani.
A carbon-titanium monocoque of the Zonda Revolucion contributes to the vehicle’s weight of 2,358 pounds (The VW Passat weighs 3200 pounds). It is available for 2.2 million euros tax-free.
