if that car didnt' have the performance it does (like let's say, it's a naturally aspirated automatic supra made with all those body mods) you and many others would no longer think it's badass by looks.

The car is actually pretty god damn ugly.

But it's because it's got a lot of power and engineering behind it that people think "ah okay it's got a purpose therefore it looks badass"



The car would still be badass even if it had only 400hp.


not 400. i'm suggesting the car at like 180 or 210hp with the same exterior.


The car uses a 7.3litre v10 engine I really doubt the engine would let you detune it that much with out it being unbearable to drive or even to start it. More people will be able to afford it which is good and bad though. Good in sales but bad because every one has one and you would appreciate it less.

I'd be pissed if I got a Zonda with only 180-210 HP. That's like buying an NSX.

Don't worry. It's limited edition and has been reserved already.

Once again, you COMPLETELY misunderstood what i typed.

So here, i'll put it into point format so it's hopefully easier for you to comprehend, okay?

1. I never said anything about DETUNING the engine on that Zonda.

2. I was stating that the car is fucking ugly. and other people agree. The only reason some people think it's badass is because it has the power and aerodynamic functionality to make it all seem like it has a purpose.

3. If you took away all that power and said it was a 1993 Supra non-turbo with only about 140 horsepower but the owner redid the entire shell to look like the Zonda in the picture, then i'm pretty sure everyone would start saying that it's just ugly and that's it.

4. in case the above 3 points were still too much for you, let me make it more simple:

if this was a Honda del sol, 98 horsepower, and looked like that, i'm sure tons of people would think it's ugly.

the only reason most DON'T think this car is ugly is because of how high-end in performance and price it is.

Take away the performance, and it's just nothing more than ugly.

lol true. but then again, the NSX's were actually about 260-280hp, which was actually pretty big for the early to mid 90's.

then there's the fact hondas are high-revving long lasting engines with more practicality on the track as opposed to a straight line.

I'll still think it's badass just purely on looks.

from Pagani Press Release:

The great success achieved by the Zonda in the different proposed versions is recognized all over the world. This car has already become an icon and allowed such a small company to prove its qualities.

The Pagani is not just a supercar manufacturer but rather a place where artistic objects take form following the renowned car tradition of Modena and the Renaissance concepts of art and science combined together by Leonardo Da Vinci over 500 years ago. In Pagani the carbon fiber is the specific know how and a perfect combination of technology and beauty. No compromises are accepted in the use of innovative materials, always the state of art, to express the passion and skill of who designed and built them.

Back in 1999, launch year of the first Zonda, the Pagani has been focusing its strategies on the research of light weight. The chassis, completely made of composite and other light and innovative materials, contained the weight to 1250 kilos, when all the other cars of the same segment would weight from 30 to 50% more. Despite of the light weight, the Zonda offered excellent comfort and safety standards. By chance, the impact on environment, as for example the fuel consumption, proved to be considerably lower than the traditional supercars and coupes of the same range, with weight from 1.800 kilos to 2.200 kilos.

The Zonda was the first example of a car manufacturer to reach such a high level in the employment of advanced composite materials, which compose the structure of the car and guarantee a stronger resistance than any traditional chassis. In order to understand the difference given by a chassis completely built in carbon fiber, just look at modern F1 cars which use this solution and the F1 cars built in the ‘80s.

The refinement of both internal and external aerodynamics enabled to obtain a low CX and the highest CZ in its sector, improving safety and stability. This accuracy granted the Zonda outstanding performances such as the reduced braking times (100-0 km in 2.2 sec. and 200-0 in 4.4 sec.) and to set the new fastest lap for homologated cars at the Nürburgring, the most difficult and tricky circuit in the world.

Further to these technical qualities, the Zonda also represents a profitable investment. For example the first C12 has increased its value of a 100%. The Zonda F Coupés and Roadsters have reached the 1 ML Euro on the second hand market. Thanks to this the brand value has consequently gone up.

After the great success of the Geneva Car Show ’08 for Zonda F and the Zonda R, a limited series which is already sold out before being produced yet, it seems like the customer cannot accept that the production of the Zonda F has almost come to conclusion. There is never been before such a strong request, it actually seemed like it had been newly launched this year. Besides, recently the crazy news of a number plate, purposely bought for a Zonda F, have echoed around and strengthened the interest in the brand. In fact at a charity auction in the Middle East, a plate number “1” was purchased by a famous car collector Sheik for the price of 14 ML Euros.

Zonda Cinque

A project born to satisfy the request of the Pagani dealer for Hong Kong “SPS”, an incredibile car which will be produced only in 5 (five) limited pieces, already all sold and will be street legal. It will be the first Pagani car to be equipped with sequential gearbox manageable both with paddles behind the steering and with the traditional gear stick on central tunnel. Besides, it will be the first Zonda to use the new Pagani invention, the carbon-titanium, a special fiber purposely created for the Zonda Cinque, which will be eventually used on the new generation models. This monster has 678 hp, 780 Nm torque, forged monolock titanium wheels, bolts and nuts will fully be done in titanium and boast the Pagani logo.

The interiors are refined and at the same time reveal the sporting attitude of this car. Racing leather seats developed by Toora, 4-points seatbelts and molybdenum steel roll-bars with carbon fiber coating.

The Zonda Cinque total weight will be 20 Kg lighter then the F model, will have new Pirelli tyres, with special compounds for the car.

Suspensions and springs will be in ergal and titanium developed with the latest technology from Öhlins, in accordance with the Pagani specifications. Four different settings, 10 adjustments each, to separate high and low frequencies, both in compression and extention.

The body is equipped with a longer front spoiler, new designed rear wing, central air intake on monocoque, extra air intakes for rear brakes. Flat bottom and new rear air extractors will improve the downforce up to 750 Kg at 300km.

Technical Specifications:

- Mercedes Benz AMG engine, 678 hp,
- ECU, Traction control , ABS by Bosch
-Inconel/titanium exhaust system coated with ceramic
-Suspensions in magnesium and titanium
- Cima sequential gearbox (6 speed), robotized by Automac engineering
- APP monolitic wheels forged in aluminium and magnesium. Size: front 9x19 –
rear 12,5x20
- Pirelli PZero tyres. Size: front 255/35/19 - rear 335/30/20
- Toora Racing Seats in carbon fiber, with leather cover
-Carbon Fiber steering wheel
- Brembo brakes in carbo-ceramic self ventilated with hydraulic servo brake,
Size: front 380x34 mm, monolitic 6 piston caliper; rear 380x34 mm, monolithic
4 piston caliper.
-Dry weight 1210 Kg
- Weight distribution in driving condition: 47% front, 53% rear
-Acceleration: 0-100 Km in 3.4 sec., 0-200 Km in 9.6 sec.
-Braking: 100-0 km in 2.1 sec., 200-0 km 4.3 sec.
- Maximum side acceleration: 1,45 G (with road tyres, NO CUP)

The Zonda Cinque will be a piece of art able to speed over 350 Km/h. A special colour livery will distinguish this unique, exclusive, 1ML Euro + tax model. Only five pieces for five wealthy Pagani lovers.
