PAGANI ZONDA R FOR SALE ***
The Zonda R was designed from scratch, with only 10 percent of Zonda F components being carried over. It features 6.0L V12 from Mercedes‘ AMG division, derived from the CLK GTR race car. Power will be dealt with via Pagani’s first paddle-shift gearbox.
The wheelbase has grown by 47mm, the overall length by 394 mm and the track is increased by 50mm. The bodywork and aerodynamics have been modified to offer maximum downforce. Much of the Zonda R is constructed of carbon-fiber and titanium mix, resulting in just a 2,360 pound curb weight.
The central monocoque of the Zonda R is made of a Carbon-Titanium composite, increasing rigidity while reducing significantly the weight. The Mercedes AMG 6.0 litre race derived V12 engine, with 750 hp and 710 Nm of torque is fitted directly to the chassis. A direct throttle actuation via mechanical cable ensures immediate throttle response.
The Xtrac Magnesium gearbox performs gearshifts in less than 20ms. Adjusting settings while driving is possible via the 12-way Bosch Motorsport traction control and ABS system. The Zonda R runs on big Pirelli P Zero rear 335/30/20 tyres and 255/35/19 front rubber.
The 1,070 kg Zonda R will catapult you from 0 to 100 km/h in 2,7 seconds. Top speed lies at 350 km/h. The Brembo carbon ceramic brakes ensure the car comes to a standstill even quicker.
The Zonda R is built in a limited production run of 10 cars and sold at a price tag of 1.460.000 Euro plus taxes.
The project began at the request of an Italo-American customer called Benny Caiola enthusiast and proud owner of three Zondas.

Despite sharing much of the Zonda’s shape, the R is almost entirely new, sharing only 10% of the Zonda F’s components. It has been obliquely suggested by Horacio Pagani that this car is a testbed chassis for certain components of the Zonda’s replacement, the Pagani Huayra (in the same vein as the Ferrari 288 GTO Evoluzione and the successive F40) and that the Zonda R accurately reflects some of the Huayra’s features. Only 15 Zonda R were produced.The Zonda R debuted at the Geneva Motor Show 2007, using the 6.0 litre V12 M120 engine sourced from the race version of the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR. The Zonda R’s competition lies with track-based cars, such as the Ferrari FXX and Maserati MC12 Corsa rather than the original Zonda’s road competitors as it is not road-homologated.
The Pagani Zonda R has a top speed of 218 mph (350.8 km/h), accelerates to 0 to 60 mph (0.0 to 96.6 km/h) in less than 2.7 seconds, can brake from 60 to 0 mph (96.6 to 0.0 km/h) in 96.0 ft (29.3 m), and corners at 1.62g.
The central carbon chassis incorporates a roll cage and a rubber racing fuel cell with 4 fuel pumps and quick refuel filler cap, similar to GT race cars. The wheelbase has been increased by 47 mm (1.9 in) to increase stability. The front and rear subframes are brand-new, built to accommodate new suspension geometry, and produced in Avional. The slick-shod wheels are new forged-magnesium center-lock models, which in conjunction with on-board pneumatic airjacks (again, like the FXX) allow rapid change of the entire wheel assemblies.
The car senses, displays and logs information about the amount of down-force that is generated at each wheel at all times. It is thought that this system will enable owners to adjust set-up according to track conditions and to improve their cornering technique.
In addition to the wheelbase increase (47 mm), overall length has increased by 394 mm (15.5 in) and track by 50 mm (2.0 in). The bodywork and aerodynamics have been altered to offer maximum down-force, featuring a longer front bonnet with flaps, a closed underbody and a new rear overhang with adjustable rear wing and race-derived diffuser. These are intended to translate into increased aerodynamic efficiency and down-force for maximum cornering speed. It is also noted that the car’s new rear bodywork is minimal in the extreme, being composed mostly of vent. This is thought to be symptomatic of the need to keep the engine cool enough, even under hard track use. Again, this is similar to the gutted bodywork of the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione.
Output has increased to 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) at 7500 rpm and 710 N·m (524 lb·ft) of torque. A lightweight carbon fibre high performance intake system, racing multiple disc centered clutch and Formula One-style exhaust system, hydroformed in Inconel 625 and ceramic coated for optimal heat dissipation, have been added. The AMG-built engine is mated to a 6-speed longitudinally-mounted manual sequential synchronized gearbox.
The car’s interior is spartan, reflecting the car’s racetrack aspirations and intended home, and features seats customized to the driver to offer maximum support. As before, the Digitek instrumentation provides essential information and the sophisticated telemetry allows a variety of sensors to monitor numerous aspects of the car.
On 30 June 2010, Pagani claimed a new record for production-based cars using the Pagani Zonda R and completing the Nürburgring in 6:47, beating the Ferrari 599XX.
Zonda R Evolución
The Zonda R Evolución is an updated version of the Zonda R. It features many changes over the previous Zonda R. Also the car takes many pieces and inspirations from the Zonda 760RS. It is finished in pearl white with exposed carbon-fibre on the nose. The 6.0L V12 engine is uprated to 800 PS. The body work is still the same, but has improved aerodynamics. It features a bigger air spliter above the two standard air spliter on the front bumper and a pair of small splitter on the sides of rear bumper. A bigger rear central fin — even bigger than the 760 series Zondas — and a small spoiler added below the standard Zonda R spoiler improves aerodynamics and increases down-force.
