Click above for a high-res gallery of the Pagani Zonda R

The Pagani Zonda is on its way to supercar heaven, due to be replaced by Horacio Pagani's next masterpiece, currently code-named the C9. To send off the current Zonda in style, Pagani is working on the Zonda R, limiting production to ten examples with a price tag of €2,000,000.

Despite looking very similar to the Zonda F and its predecessors, the R only shares ten percent of the outgoing model's underpinnings, and instead, gets a sleek new shape that's 47mm longer, providing even more downforce through the use of a longer splitter, rear defuser and wing.

Pagani has released four new renderings of its all-carbon fiber coupe, and according to Autoblog.it (no relation), Pagani won't be using the 750-hp, 7.3-liter Mercedes mill, instead opting for the 6.0-liter AMG V12 putting out similar hp and torque. Five road-going versions are planned, while the remaining five will be limited to circuit duty. We're hoping to finally see the Zonda R in person sometime next year, likely at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

      Nothing can really say 'Italian Exotic' like this. Game over.

      P.S. Is the yellow painted or implied kevlar? They keep changing their tune on that one.

      Anytime you post an article about this car, just link to the site and say OMG. Thats all. Ive heard people say that a car is "sex" which always seemed silly because I like my cars... a lot, but you if I had to give one up... anyhow thats the words that came to mind with this car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed.

        This is pure sex.

      Let see If I can explain my feelings. I love the shape this car, and the saleen S7 inspire, together with the McLaren F1. the curves and stance are so sexy and attractive. I love this car, but since its the race version I wonder if it would have the same over the top interior that Zonda is known from. the zonda interior is a mix of sushi, couch. the interior compares to no other car.

      As the late great Bernie Mac once said, "Bust a nut!"

      Friggin' hot.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Sexy can i?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hot, but I wish Pagani would release this car already.

      Love this car, it's everything a supercar should be, crazy numbers, crazy looks, (crazy price tag and exclusivity) and insane performance

      But I prefer the all-carbon finish better without the yellow bits, although I totally don't mind sunburn orange or lime green as a subsitute colour.

      Haha cute car!

      Stunning! but I would rework the oval design element on the tail. It doesn't quite work with the rest, which is absolutely spectacular.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Really, what is up with the oval thing sticking out of the back. Who green-lighed that one?

      The best feature of the Zonda has always been its lack of electronic nannies.

      It's just good old-fashioned mechanical mayhem.

      Gotta love it.
