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.

      not to pop your bubble but that's stuff from 2008.
      Not only that but that's actually a Zonda F chassis with C9's parts and a different body to cool down the V12TT. The only actual C9 mule spotted so far is much more squared, and yellow, where the black tape doesn't cover the bodywork.

      It has been 10 years since the original, be interesting to see what they do.

      Its obviously a mule. There is no way in hell they would practically duplicate the last car's look. At least, I hope not anyway.

        Unless they are taking a page from the Porsche book... :D

      The car is awesome as is.

        Tough to improve on perfection.

      Zonda is excellent car but I frankly, as much as anyone who cannot even dream of buying such supercar, hope and pray is that this just a mule. Copying Zonda's look would damage both the "freshness" and appeal of new car and legacy of Zonda

        This is definitely a mule.. no way Pagani hasn't got a newer sexier shell for the C9.

      These pictures are old and were shot in Colorado last summer or earlier.

      huge panel gaps, a step back in exhaust design, gaping rectangular scoop in the back.
      yeeeah, I'm sure the finished product will look a lot like this.
