way back in 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show and iterated on the design for over a decade before replacing the car. Pagani has claimed to have built the final Zonda before, but the company says that the new Zonda RevolucionZonda RevolucionPagani Zonda RevolucionItaly, 2013 > 20136 photos
is truly the final Zonda. The €2.2 million, plus applicable taxes, car made its debut at Vanishing Point 2013, the ninth international meeting for Pagani owners.

The Revolucion is extreme in every sense from its carbon fiber body to its extremely low weight. The Revolucion is based on the track-only Zonda RZonda RPagani Zonda RItaly, 2009 > 20094 photos

with 800hp and 538lb-ft.  Power is routed to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transmission made from magnesium that can change greats in 20 milliseconds. The Bosch traction control system has 12 different settings, and there is an ABS system with multiple operation settings.

The body gets some major changes over the Zonda R with new air deflectors on the hood and a vertical stabilizer at the rear. The rear wing also has a drag reduction system on the rear wing with two modes that can be activated by the driver at any time via a button on the steering wheel. It switches between maximum and minimum downforce settings at the press of a button. If the driver holds the button down for several seconds, the system will go into automatic mode.

The brakes at Brembo’s ultimate CCM-R brakes that are derived from the carbon discs used in F1. Compared to Brembo’s standard carbon-ceramic brakes, the CCM-R weigh 15% less, 250% better tensile strength and 400% better thermal conductivity. Brembo claims that the discs last four times longer than the standard carbon-ceramic brakes.

It might seem like a stretch to pay €2.2 million for a car that cannot be driven on the road, but it will definitely be fun to drive. Plus, the last Zonda is sure to be a collector's item.
