This is it: the last Pagani Zonda.
After what seemed like a never-ending run of special and extra-special versions of its Zonda hypercar, Pagani has declared that the Revolucion will be the last hurrah.
Celebrating the long run of the Zonda badge, the Revolucion was unveiled to clients at Vanishing Point 2013, the international gathering of Pagani owners.
Among the Zonda Revolucion's features are a carbon-titanium central monocoque, aerodynamic elements such as new deflectors on the front bonnet, and a vertical stabilizer mounted on the rear. All of this contributes to a kerb weight of just 1070kg.
F1 fans will be familiar with the Drag Reduction System (DRS), which is fitted to the Pagani Zonda Revolucion’s rear wing.
The driver can choose to activate DRS manually via the steering wheel, or let the electronic brain of the Revolucion control the DRS automatically.
The Mercedes-Benz AMG sourced 6.0 litre V12 develops a staggering 597kW of power and 730Nm of torque, giving the Revolucion a power-to-weight ratio of 558kW per tonne.
Brakes on the Revolucion promise something special, with the Brembo braking system adopting “new cutting edge F1-technology derived CCMR discs”.
These discs are 15 percent lighter than previous CCM discs, and run at lower operating temperatures. They also last four times longer.
A six-speed magnesium transversal and sequential gearbox is fitted to the Revolution, capable of changing gears in 20 milliseconds.
The Bosch traction-control system has 12 different settings and the ABS system allows the driver to adapt the behaviour of the car to their driving style.
Owner and chief designer of Pagani, Horacio Pagani, said the Revolucion is a credit to the carmaker’s engineers.
"Limits are made to be overcome,” Mr Pagani said.
“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."
The Pagani Zonda Revolucion can be all yours for a fraction under $AU 3 million. The change from $AU 3 million should be enough to fund airfares to Europe and back so you can pick it up yourself.
