In a Q&A with Argentina Auto Blog, Horacio Pagani said the upcoming C9 is "a brand new car from concept, weight distribution, materials and dynamics: it has 3,770 new parts." What he didn't say, at any time, was that it would look any different than a Zonda. And that could explain why spy shots of Horacio's latest marvel capture a supercar that looks a lot like his last.

The 6.0-liter, 700-horsepower twin-turbo V12 will need to breathe a little more deeply, which explains the updated front clip and gaping intakes behind the cabin. Otherwise – and unless he's playing a brilliant game of hide-and-seek – all but a few of those 3,770 new parts must be underneath that familiar shape. The supercar estimated to run €900,000 should be shown in final form sometime this year.
