Pagani Zonda Tricolore – Click above for high-res image gallery

Ferrari may have claimed the name Italia with the new 458, but rival Modenese exotic automaker Pagani is hoisting the Tricolore flag with a new special edition Zonda.

Presumably the last iteration of the hyper-exotic Zonda before the new C9 hits production, the Tricolore edition honors the Italian air force aerobatics team, known as the Frecce Tricolori. Based on the exclusive Zonda Cinque, the Tricolore is constructed from a special carbon-titanium weave left bare but for a clear blue lacquer. Red, white and green stripes run up from the nose along the top of the car's surface, passing by the unique vertical fin air intakes.

LED running lights are also unique to the Tricolore, of which only one example will be built and sold at a whopping 1.3 million euros, or about $1.75M in American funds. The Tricolore is slated to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for in-the-carbon photos, but in the meantime, you can check out the images in the high-res gallery.

      Carbon-Titanium Weave FTW
      Normal CarbonFibre is so passé

      Beautiful dash! And yes, because it doesn't include a giant nav or touchscreen. Not feeling the blue though.

        Squadra azzurra...

      The coolest plane they can get is a crappy MB-339 jet trainer? They are really helping that jet seem like a Zonda.

      nice... these photos were taken near my home, but i don't like the decals and the leds.

      Why do most of the pictures in the affixed galleries on Autoblog never load?

        The same reason clickying "reply" doesn't make your comment reply to the comment you want to reply to, and you end up having to scroll back up and click reply again before you can click "Add Comment"...

        It sucks and never works, and you have to click back like ten times to get back out of the gallery. So Fing aggravating!!!

        Will they ever fix the gallery or the comment system? FFS!

        Still looks like a kit car with the old AMG 7.3 crammed in the back. The new Pagani looks a lot more mature than this.

        Love the engine, love the fact that this car is so exceptionally well made, always hated the looks. Too insectile and disjointed. The car looks like it's got a huge ass and tiny little bug eyes. Way too low in the front and high in the rear like a door stop or wedge of cheese.

        I'm glad they fixed the proportions on the new one. Good riddance to this one, bring on the asymmetrical ailerons and proper proportions of the replacement! They could have kept that engine though. It's kind of a shame to lose a 7.3L naturally aspirated V12 even if the replacement is a good engine too.

        TMI!

      It works for me.....

      Man, there's just nothing better than the Zonda right now, it's like the ultimate evolution of 90s supercars like the Mclaren F1, and F50, light body, big N/A V12 and amazing build quality and attention to detail.

        The Veyron is better.

        And the Aston One77 is coming soon.

        The replacement for the Zonda looks way way WAY better too. No more wedge door stop look.

        I do agree that the 90's supercar is kind of a lost art that should be kept around. The McLaren F1 and F50 were much more coherent looking designs than this.

      single most awesome and hottest car to come out of italy in the last ten years, keep em coming!
        • 5 Years Ago

      • 5 Years Ago
